I was on the phone with my pal Greg one day lamenting about something I was struggling with and he said, "You are whatever you say you are until it doesn't happen". "Wow" I said, "can I use that line?" And Greg says "Sure, that's what you told me once" hahaha.

As soon as I got off the toilet (don't tell Greg that's where I was talking to him from) I wrote it down and it became the central idea for this song.


Until It Don’t Happen (Gladstone-Girio)

You think that your so tough
You think that life’s so rough
But you don’t know, you’re the one
That makes it all true

You think that its hard to go
You think that its all a show
But you don’t know, everyone
Isn’t looking at you


You say what you are
And you don’t know, don’t know
You are what you say
Until it don’t happen, happen

I think about you so much
I think that I need a crutch
But I don’t know, I‘m the one
Who makes it all true

I think when its time to go
I think that we always know
But I don’t know, what’s next
