Welcome to the third episode of Song-A-Week!

This week's song was inspired in by a quote sent in by Molly Goodwin:

"Sometimes your only mode of transportation is a leap of faith." - Margaret Shepard

I had been wanting to write an up-tempo Summer driving song for a while, and this idea totally inspired me to accept the challenge! The video was shot on the return trip from visiting family back in Ohio, and the whole thing was written, shot, and edited in 48 hours.

lyrics

Bigger, Better Soon

I can feel the wheels rolling
On 65
I've been waiting for the summer
Just to feel alive

Got no gas in my tank
But I'm not afraid
'Cause the only way I move
Is by a leap of faith

Drive, until the sky turns blue
Oh try, just gotta make a move
Oh I'm alive, so what have I got to lose but
Bigger, Better, Soon

Got my head lights bright
Cause' the road's not clear
I leave the sun of yesterday
In my rear view mirror

And try as I might
To pick up the pace
The only way I move
Is by a leap of faith

CHORUS

Speak up world, I wanna listen
Tell me all that I've been missing

SOLO

CHORUS
