The owl represents understanding...and that's what this song is about.

lyrics

Former Me - Lyrics
Words and music by Angie Nussey

I will not be the face of anger today.
I will not be disgraced by what some others say.
I will not hang my shoulders and walk like a failure.
Nor puff out my chest and laugh like a sailor.

I will stand in this stairwell until I’m reminded
that all of us in here are not so divided.

I will not let my pride make this all wrong.
I will not be defined by a voice or a song.
I will not make a ruling on what they ought to see.
I will not be the former me.

I did not come this far to fall off the wagon.
I will not let my scars feed this addiction.
I can laugh at this moment… I know it’s a test.
We all carry love. We all do our best.

I will stand in this stairwell until I’m reminded
that all of us in here are not so divided.

And when I cross that room, I’ll stay in my light.
I will not let my gloom follow this time.
I will look in their eyes…allow them to see.
I will not be the former me.

We are all dancers here and sometimes we step on toes.
It’s in these small collisions where compassion grows.
And in this stairwell I have yet another chance
To open up my heart and own this circumstance.

I will not be the face of anger today.
I will not be disgraced by what some others say.
I will look in their eyes, allow them to see.
I will not be the former me.
