about

Built from a growling, syncopated guitar riff and funky drum loop, Make It is a song about forging your own path - no matter what other people think or say.

"I just need a place to stay, I have found and gone my way" - it's a deeply personal song to me, as I feel like I have matured to find my own voice in music.

Thanks for listening x
Josh

lyrics

Grooving down the alleyway,
Jazz cats look at the milky way,
I could get used to find a way,
I just need a place to stay

Cruising down the alleyway,
Strangers look down the other way,
I just know what I've got to say,
I have found and gone my way

I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, hell I can fake it,
I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, yeah

Moving down the alleyway,
Wheels up and I lift away,
This is what I was meant to say,
I have found and gone my way

I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, hell I can fake it,
I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, yeah

Pa da da da da...

I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, hell I can fake it,
I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, hell I can fake it,

I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, hell I can fake it,
I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, hell I can fake it,

I walk a straight line through the brick walls,
Hell I can make it, yeah
