SONG LYRICS

Family History – Vanessa Wang

Verse 1
Tell me every truth
Every hidden clue
Hidden underneath
All of your leaves
Tell me every tale
Every song that they’ll
Sing beneath the tree
Won’t you tell me

Prechorus
How to see
Legends once in the making
Now just memories
Now to me
Every step that I’m tracing
Over land and over sea

Chorus
Tell me that wherever I will go
I won’t ever be alone
Cause it’s running all through me
Thousand years of history
Will you be there in the dark
Will you show me every star
Looking over centuries
Family history

Drop
Oh oh oh
Everything to me

Verse 2
Show me every scar
Every hidden heart
Sunken submarines
Even war scenes
Show me there is light
Beyond after night
Show me how to dream
Won’t you show me

Prechorus
How to see
Legends once in the making
Now just memories
Now to me
Overstep that I’m tracing
Over land and over sea

Chorus
Tell me that wherever I will go
I won’t ever be alone
Cause it’s running all through me
Thousand years of history
Will you be there in the dark
Will you show me every star
Looking over centuries
Family history

Drop
Oh oh oh
Everything to me

Bridge
Time has brought me here
Tales have made it clear
With you with me here
There’s nothing left to ever ever fear
Cause I am brave
And I trust the faith
Hand in hand with love to
Lead the way

Chorus
Tell me that wherever I will go
I won’t ever be alone
Cause it’s running all through me
Thousand years of history
Will you be there in the dark
Will you show me every star
Looking over centuries
Family history

Drop
Oh oh oh
Everything to me
Oh oh oh
Everything to me

DESCRIPTION
I wrote this song inspired by the theme of connections to me, and revolved it around the idea of a family tree. All composition (lyrics and melody), recording (vocals and instruments), and production (production, mixing, and mastering) were done solely by me, Vanessa Wang.
