The song “Am I Wrong?” by Nico & Vinz has been stuck in my head for a few days… the first lyrics that really jump out at you are “Am I wrong? For thinking that we could be something for real?”  So for the first dozen times or so I thought it was a love song…

THEN I really started to hear the words and love this song even more.  It’s the story of a person deciding if he should try for something different than everyone else around him… to get out of his comfort zone… sound familiar? 🙂

Had to share it – there are many days where I feel this way.  Am I wrong to think I can do this?  Am I wrong to think I can build and grow and maintain an art licensing business?

I don’t ask myself that as much as I used to but the thought still pops up from time to time… That’s just resistance checking my resolve.  As they also repeat in the song, “If you tell me I’m wrong, wrong… I don’t want to be right.”

Listen for the first time or with new ears if you think this is a love song.  It’s my newest addition to my “empowerment playlist.”

“Am I Wrong”

Am I wrong for thinking out the box from where I stay?
Am I wrong for saying that I choose another way?
I ain’t tryna do what everybody else doing
Just cause everybody doing what they all do
If one thing I know, I’ll fall but I’ll grow
I’m walking down this road of mine, this road that I call home

So am I wrong?
For thinking that we could be something for real?
Now am I wrong?
For trying to reach the things that I can’t see?
But that’s just how I feel,
That’s just how I feel
That’s just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can’t see

Am I tripping for having a vision?
My prediction: I’m a be on the top of the world
Walk your walk and don’t look back, always do what you decide
Don’t let them control your life, that’s just how I feel
Fight for yours and don’t let go, don’t let them compare you, no
Don’t worry, you’re not alone, that’s just how we feel

Am I wrong? (Am I wrong?)
For thinking that we could be something for real?
(Oh yeah yeah yeah oh)
Now am I wrong? (Am I wrong?)
For trying to reach the things that I can’t see?
(Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah)
But that’s just how I feel,
That’s just how I feel
That’s just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can’t see

If you tell me I’m wrong, wrong
I don’t wanna be right, right
If you tell me I’m wrong, wrong
I don’t wanna be right
[2x]

Am I wrong?
For thinking that we could be something for real?
Now am I wrong?
For trying to reach the things that I can’t see?
But that’s just how I feel,
That’s just how I feel
That’s just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can’t see

So am I wrong? (Am I wrong?)
For thinking that we could be something for real?
(Oh yeah yeah yeah oh)
Now am I wrong? (Am I wrong?)
For trying to reach the things that I can’t see?
(Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah)
But that’s just how I feel,
That’s just how I feel
That’s just how I feel
Trying to reach the things that I can’t see
