Greyson Chance is an amazing artist/How he reminded me of the 12-year-old me

Honestly, he beats JB by a looooooooooong shot. He’s made 3 original songs posted in YouTube I think, but none of them were recorded properly so the sound sucks. This song however, isn’t. It’s Waiting Outside the Lines acoustic ver., which I found better than the album ver. The lyrics are fantastic and whenever I listen to it and read the lyrics, it feels like the 12-year-old me is talking to me (through the lyrics) ‘Cause when I was 12, I was very unique yet extremely smart. I didn’t care much about what people said to me then ’cause I knew I was unstoppable. But then again I was only 12 and those stupid fucking Filipino bastards broke me and my ideals and turned me into a depressed, confused, broken-spirited boy who now…. just wants to fit in.

The lyrics here basically explained who and what I was when I was 12 (and younger) and is reminding me that that “thing” is still inside of me, waiting, just waiting.

Greyson Chance – Waiting Outside the Lines Lyrics

You’ll never enjoy your life,
living inside the box
You’re so afraid of taking chances,
how you gonna reach the top?

Rules and regulations,
force you to play it safe
Get rid of all the hesitation,
it’s time for you to seize the day

Instead of just sitting around
and looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
the time is now

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

Try to have no regrets
even if it’s just tonight
How you gonna walk ahead
if you keep living blind

Stuck in my same position,
you deserve so much more
There’s a whole world around us,
just waiting to be explored

Instead of just sitting around
and looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
the time is now, just let it go

The world will force you to smile
I’m here to help you notice the rainbow
Cause I know,
What’s in you is out there

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

I’m trying to be patient (I’m trying to be patient)
the first step is the hardest (the hardest)
I know you can make it,
go ahead and take it

I’m Waiting, waiting, just waiting I’m waiting
I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
