Thanks!

I'd like to thank every single person who came out to the Bluebird show last night and donated their time and funds toward Project Clean Water! The shows raised $20,000 and was a huge success thanks to all of you. I really appreciate all the support throughout the years in making the charity possible. Also, as promised, the next lyric to the next song- "What You Are." You can also click HERE for the vlog of when I just wrote it so you can get a sneak peak of what to expect on the song a little, and you can click HERE for more of the explanation behind the words. Lots of love- xxj

WHAT YOU ARE (Jewel and Dave Berg)

VERSE 1
IíM DRIVING AROUND TOWN
KINDA BORED WITH THE WINDOWS ROLLED DOWN
I SEE A GIRL ON A BUS STOP BENCH
DRESSED TO DRAW ATTENTION
HOPING EVERYONE WILL STARE
CAUSE IF SHE DONíT STAND OUT
SHE THINKS SHEíLL DISSAPPEAR
I WISH I COULD HOLD HER, TELL HER, SHOW HER
WHAT SHE WANTS IS ALREADY THERE

CHORUS 1:
A STAR IS A STAR
IT DOESNíT HAVE TO TRY TO SHINE
WATER WILL FALL
A BIRD JUST KNOWS HOW TO FLY
YOU DONíT HAVE TO TELL A FLOWER HOW TO BLOOM
OR LIGHT HOW TO FILL UP A ROOM
YOU ALREADY ARE WHAT YOU ARE
AND WHAT YOU ARE - IS BEAUTIFUL

VERSE 2
I HEARD A STORY THE OTHER DAY
TOOK PLACE AT THE LOCAL V.A.
A FATHER TALKING TO HIS DYING SON
THIS WAS HIS CONVERSATION:
ITíS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THIS
YOU CANíT GO FIRST, I CAN'T HANDLE IT
THE BOY SAID DAD, NOW DONíT YOU CRY
REMEMBER WHEN I WAS A CHILD WHAT YOU USED TO TELL ME
WHEN IíD ASK WHY, YOUíD SAY...

CHORUS 2
GRAVITY IS GRAVITY
IT DOESNíT TRY TO PULL YOU DOWN
A STONE IS STONE
IT CANíT HELP BUT HOLD ITíS GROUND
THE WIND JUST BLOWS THOUGH YOU CANNOT SEE
ITíS EVERYWHERE JUST LIKE I WILL ALWAYS BE
YOU ALREADY ARE WHAT YOU ARE
AND WHAT YOU ARE - IS STRONG ENOUGH

BRIDGE
LOOK IN THE MIRROR
NOW THATíS ANOTHER STORY TO TELL
I GIVE LOVE TO OTHERS
BUT I GIVE MYSELF HELL
I HAVE TO TELL MYSELF
IN EVERY SEED THEREíS A PERFECT PLAN
WHAT I HOPE TO BE I ALREADY AM
