IF – SYNOPSIS OF AN ALBUM
If you had been more resourceful?
If you said less lies?
If you, instead of choosing to be bad, had you chosen to be good?
If you were more fun?
If you were less shy?
If you had been more curious?
If you had made important decisions without fear?
You can always choose which side you are on. We can be the leaders of our lives ourselves, choose that fate will do it, or worse we can entrust our choices to others. There are endless ways to make sense of your life, or not.
