about

A song about perseverance - about staying the course to achieve whatever goal or goals you have in mind regardless of whether you have failed previously or made mistakes.

lyrics

When you’re feeling like you failed
And you’re thinking your ship has sailed
Let me tell you something that may save you
Keep on learning from your mistakes
And you’ll get that decisive break
Just keep saying I will persevere

On my own terms
In my own right
In my own way
My own flight

Yeah on my own terms
In my own right
In my own way
My own flight

The naysayers will make you feel
Your objectives are far from real
They will tell you don’t bother you won’t break through
Be defiant, be resolute
And accept no substitute
Just keep saying I will persevere

On my own terms
In my own right
In my own way
My own flight

Yeah on my own terms
In my own right
In my own way
My own flight

It’s my own flight
And my own right
It’s my own life

My own terms
My own right
My own way
My own flight

Yeah on my own terms
In my own right
In my own way
My own flight…..for it’s my own life

Scott Krokoff New York, New York

With a rich and melodic sound drawn primarily from his love of 60s and 70s music, Scott Krokoff (pron: Crow-Cough) weaves elements of folk rock & country pop into confessional and compelling Americana. He is an evocative and introspective songwriter, and a deft finger-picker in the vein of James Taylor and Paul Simon with “an edge of Replacements styled alt rock to his strum” (Hiplanta). ... more
