Chasing Light

Rebecca Minor  •  Album

$1.29$8.45

“Have you ever craved forward movement? Tried to break through a wall towards love and acceptance? Gotten hurt and built your own walls in reaction? Looked back at your life and realized you had lost your confidence? How about that day you woke up and decided it was time to find the spark in your life again?

That, my friends, is what Chasing Light is all about. Tracks 1-4 are songs I wrote several years ago, all from a place of yearning and searching for the life I desired. Track 5 was written right before completion of the album, and marks a turning point in my personal journey, mirrored musically. Many of us are in the pursuit of finding and living our unique expression. For me, Chasing Light is the score for the story of my pursuit.” ~Rebecca Minor

Chasing Light is a rich, musical autobiography; a glimpse into the shadowed valleys and glittering peaks of one woman’s journey towards self discovery and living the life she knows she’s meant to. You’ll hear both piano driven and guitar driven tunes that will get your toes tapping and your heart melting.

Lyrics

Spinnin’ My Wheels
Music and lyrics by Rebecca Minor

There’s no barricade
Blocking the road ahead,
So why am I stalling here,
My motivation dead?
No one’s telling me
That I shouldn’t try.
I am in my own way,
And I couldn’t tell you why.

I want nothing more
Than to leave this town.
But as I’m gearing up
Life pushes down,
And I get stuck here

Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
I’m burning for freedom
So how come it feels like I’m frozen?
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
I never wanted to know how it feels
To go nowhere.
How am I ever gonna get there?

One day I’ll wake up
Feeling alive.
Knowing where I’m going,
Now just trying to survive.
I’ll breathe forgiving air
In fresh terrain.
I might have a lot to lose,
But I have everything to gain.

I want nothing more
Than to leave this town.
But as I’m gearing up
Life pushes down,
And I get stuck here

Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
I’m burning for freedom
So how come it feels like I’m frozen?
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
I never wanted to know how it feels
To go nowhere.
How am I ever gonna get there?

Don’t let go
I think I need your had to hold.
I can’t get started on my own.

Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
I’m burning for freedom
So how come it feels like I’m frozen?
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
I never wanted to know how it feels
To go nowhere.
How am I ever gonna get there?

Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels,
Spinnin’, spinnin’, spinnin’ my wheels.

Let Me In
Music and Lyrics by Rebecca Minor

It is unusually
Difficult for someone like me
To play it cool.
I wear my heart on my sleeve.

I like that you’re kind of tall,
And how we’re always having a ball
Just playing ’round.
I never like to leave.

We are on this precipice,
And yet there’s something in your kiss
Keeping me from getting near.
I wish it wasn’t so unclear.

What do I have to do to prove
That I am worth your taking a chance on?
Are you unwilling to remove
This pedestal your independence stand on?
I agree there has to be friendship to feed the spark.
But I can’t be there for you if you’re leaving me in the dark.
Let me in.

Everything is going well.
Yet, I don’t know what I can tell
My humble hope.
I’m still walking on eggshells.
I admit I’ve rushed before.
And that’s not what I want anymore.
It seems we’ve both
Experienced what that spells.

But it would feel so nice to say
You light me up like a sunny day.
I’ll keep it to myself a while,
Until I feel I’m not on trial.

What do I have to do to prove
That I am worth your taking a chance on?
Are you unwilling to remove
This pedestal your independence stand on?
I agree there has to be friendship to feed the spark.
But I can’t be there for you if you’re leaving me in the dark.
Let me in.

Let me in
Please make your heart known.
Let me in.
I can’t do this alone.

What do I have to do to prove
That I am worth your taking a chance on?
Are you unwilling to remove
This pedestal your independence stand on?
I agree there has to be friendship to feed the spark.
But I can’t be there for you if you’re leaving me in the dark.
Let me in. Let me in.
Won’t you let, won’t you let, won’t you let
Oh, let me in.

Not Now


Music and Lyrics by Rebecca Minor

Don’t look, don’t say what you’re thinkin’
And boy you should not touch.
You may think that you’ve got what I want
But no thanks very much.
It’s true it wasn’t you who drove me to this state,
But trust me when I say we’re not gonna relate.
We’re not gonna relate.
Not now, not now, I need some space.
Not now, not now, it’s time that I face
This hurt that keeps on circling ‘round
And stealin’ my hope away.
So I am gonna face my demons
Starting today.

Why bother walkin’ over here
And charming me to death,
When you’re just gonna change your mind?
I’d rather not hold my breath.
It’s true it wasn’t you who strung me ‘long, then cut.
But each story ends the same, and my heart is in a rut.
Yah, my heart is in a rut.

Not now, not now, I need some space.
Not now, not now, it’s time that I face
This hurt that keeps on circling ‘round
And stealin’ my hope away.
So I have got to face my demons
Starting today.

I never want to turn into the kind who stops believing in love.
I intend to find my freedom in the other things I can think of
In all the dreams I can dream of.

But, not now, not now, I need some space.
Not now, not now, it’s time that I face
This hurt that keeps on circling ‘round
And stealin’ my hope away.
So I have got to face my demons
Starting today, Starting today
Starting today, Starting today
Starting today.

Faith in Myself
Music and Lyrics by Rebecca Minor

I don’t recognize
With my sleeping eyes
These endless hallways
And unmarked doors,
The smell of old wood,
And these creaking floors.

But I’m callin’ out for you.
I don’t know what I’ll do
If I can’t find you inside this place.
I just have to see your sweet face.

And I’m not one to analyze dreams,
But there may be more truth than there seems.
What was once confidence melted to doubt,
And I can’t go on living without
Some faith in myself.

Here I am again
In this darkened den.
Though long ago you were taken away
I can hear you so clearly,
And want you to stay.

But I find myself awake
With this familiar ache.
I try to recall how it felt in the light,
And I’m not gonna give up this fight.

And I’m not one to analyze dreams,
But there may be more truth than there seems.
What was once confidence melted to doubt,
And I can’t go on living without
Some faith in myself.

And I’m not gonna let go
‘Till I’m certain I’ve pulled you back up from below.
I have learned that life is too short to feel anything
But faith in myself
Oh, faith in myself.

And I’m not one to analyze dreams,
But there may be more truth than there seems.
What was once confidence melted to doubt,
And I can’t go on living without
Some faith in myself.
Faith in myself.

Chasing Light
Music and Lyrics by Rebecca Minor

Deep in a day dream,
Cold rain is falling.
I don’t take notice.
All I hear is Iceland calling,
Soft and low.

To stunning skycaps
I’m being beckoned.
You’ve promised magic
If I don’t waste another second.
Time to go.

Lately, life’s been merely going through the motions.
Will that change if I decide to cross the ocean
And come to you?

Wake me up from hibernation
With a gust of inspiration.
Blaze your beauty ‘cross the jet black night.
Fill this heavy head with wonder.
Lift the spell that I’ve been under.
Somewhere ‘long the way
I lost my sight.

That’s why I’m chasing light, light,
Why I’m chasing, why I’m chasing light.
Light, light,
Why I’m chasing, why I’m chasing light.

Stare through the sunset,
Praying for clear skies.
Drive into darkness
Until a vivid stream of emerald
Fills my eyes.

Heart is full,
I’m laughing, dancing like a child.
Somehow witnessing
this thing to pure and wild
Is healing me.

Wake me up from hibernation
With a gust of inspiration.
Blaze your beauty ‘cross the jet black night.
Fill this heavy head with wonder.
Lift the spell that I’ve been under.
Somewhere ‘long the way
I lost my sight.

That’s why I’m chasing light, light,
Why I’m chasing, why I’m chasing light.
Light, light,
Why I’m chasing, why I’m chasing
Light, Light,
Why I’m chasing, why I’m chasing light.
Light, light,
Why I’m chasing, why I’m chasing light.
