The Song's Story

We're so excited about this story!  What an inspiration!  A while back, Chris Wentz (our CCO of Songmaker Productions), saw a motivational speaker while traveling, named John O'Leary.  He was so moved by his speech he emailed John and asked if we could speak to him.  Our jobs are similar in a sense where both of our objectives are to inspire people to do whatever it is they want to do in life.  Whether it's work, family, church, school.. whatever it is that you are involved with in your life.  In our case, it's composing music to the words of non-musical people.  John talks about topics such as living an inspired life, and asking questions like "what more can I do?".  Do your self a favor and check out his website http://johnolearyinspires.com/.  Hearing him speak about the challenges he has overcome in life is truly amazing.  We asked if he would like a song and he said yes... specifically about chapter 2 of his book "On Fire".  We pulled most of the sentences right from the book to write the words and it turned out fantastic!  We love working with people like John!  What's your story?  We can help you move someone in your life with music from your own words!  Your words, our composers, your song!  Thank you John!


Testimonial

Really great!  The song sounds great.  Thank you for writing the song and putting my words to music!  It's amazing that a company can take someone's words and make them sound like a real song!

Lyrics

Hello my friend I’d like to hear your story
You can make a difference and feel the glory
of what it’s like to live inspired
Past experience is not required
You can’t always choose the path you walk on
But you can overcome and realize how strong
you can become living a life full of love
Living a life inspired, rising above

The time to be brave is now
Don’t wait for it to come somehow
Greet people on the street and happily admit
I love you, and there is nothing you can do about it

The power of one is very real
Think about it, and see how you feel
Live inspired and a new day will come
Live inspired to the beat of your drum
Living Inspired requires a transformation
Namely, awareness, action, and recognition 
There are choices we can make everyday
Truths we can seek as a passageway

The time to be brave is now
Don’t wait for it to come somehow
So embrace the unknown and find your fighting spirit
I love you, and there is nothing you can do about it

Focus on the beauty of the next day
What more can I do; I’ll show you the way
You can get out of bed but not be awake
Use your inner flame, realize what’s at stake

The time to be brave is now
Don’t wait for it to come somehow
Look in to the mirror at your reflection and commit 
I love you, and there is nothing you can do about it
