The first ever recording of my original song, Shake It Off.
Shake It Off
Written by Peter Marinari (with Elise Wei)
I held my tongue for you and let you dig your own hole. You didn't seem to realize that your words could do that job,
and now you're in too deep for us to hear what you really mean. And I am done standing at the ready for you.
I spent enough years steadying your hands.
Now I'm gonna stand back and watch you shake it off.
Why did I try to sympathize with you just because we were born under the same sign? Why don't I ever draw a line and keep you on the other side?
Your will isn't strong enough - put a little back into it.
Your will isn't strong enough - say something like you mean it.
Whatever happened to the iconic you that I knew?
You were something to behold, in the center of it all.
So where did that you go?
You gotta shake it off, shake up your status quo.
Go with what you don't know for a change of pace.
You've gotta lose a little of your control,
to get out of that awful place.
