  • Autopilot (Original Song) - Mason Chapello

    447 views 1 year ago
    My performance from the 2014 SHS Showtime. This was my first time ever performing one of my originals in front of a live audience. This song is extremely personal, so it was difficult to sing it on stage. I felt vulnerable and exposed... but I have never felt more connected with an audience in my entire life. Thank you to everyone who was there to support me during the tough times that inspired this song, and to Lauren Licursi for accompanying me and helping me bring my music to life.

    LYRICS

    Said I'd never do wrong
    Truth is I'm not strong enough to keep myself
    Away from the words of someone else
    All I've come to know Is acting like I know how to kill the hurt
    Moving on doesn't always work

    Why do I try
    Running away like I didn't hear a word they said
    Why do I go
    Blaming myself for the things somebody else did

    Why do I
    Gotta jump the line
    If I take the time
    I'll learn just how to
    Fly oh I
    Gotta hop up on cloud 9
    Once I finally find it
    I'll be in autopilot

    Now I'm breaking down the walls
    You won't notice at all because of the words you say
    I'm not gonna let the hate block my way
    I built another road it's a place that only I know
    Try'na keep it real
    You're never gonna know just how I feel

    I respect the pride in people's eyes when they come and tell me
    even though I can't see
    it wouldn't be the same without me

    Why do I try
    Running away like I didn't hear a word they said
    Why do I go
    Blaming myself for the things somebody else did

    Why do I
    Gotta jump the line
    If I take the time
    I'll learn just how to
    Fly oh I
    Gotta hop up on cloud 9
    Once I finally find it
    I'll be in autopilot

    Wish you knew just what a smile hides
    Do you know what it's like to live a life of 1000 lies
    Loving you I didn't get that far
    Here I am now bleeding with all these scars

    Said I'd never do wrong
    Truth is I'm not strong enough to keep myself
    Away from the words of someone else
