OnTap On Tour: Taylor Hicks & Other Musical Troubadours II
Part 2 of 2: Takin’ Off Today
by Louise Uznanski for OnTapBlog
Lyrics: Takin’ Off by Adam Ezra
You’re a rag-top angel, you’re amazing grace
Time to gamble on the life we chase
Take a last look out on
Turn the keys and we’re gone
Who cares if monday there’ll be hell to pay
We’ve got miles to go and I will drive it slow and
We are takin off today
We’re takin off
The venue is booked and tickets go on sale.
The tour schedule comes out and the band criss-crosses the country.
The bus is packed after rehearsing the songs in the set list for the hundredth time.
Cowbells, drums, harps, guitars and keyboards and unfrosted PopTarts are wheeled into another venue in another state.
The doors open, the opening act comes on late, the headliner even later. But, you’re there and you know it won’t be long.
Takin’ Off. Time to gamble on the life we chase.
We’re Takin’ Off …..Today.
Above has been a glimpse into the artist’s perspective as they pursue a dream.
This video is one fan’s perspective of a priceless journey……
