Keith Moody Singled Out Week: Long Way Up

Keith Moody releases his new album, "Dreaming Out Loud", this week. To celebrate we asked him to tell us about some of the songs from the album. Today he tells us about, "Long Way Up". Here is the story:

Long Way Up is realizing you are at point of no return. And while it may be tough sledding ahead; you have already gotten through things of equal difficulty in the past. With this realization, you gain a "vulnerable strength". There is also an undercurrent of the cynicism that comes with getting older and wiser. I think everyone has that period in their life, where you have to look at yourself and say "Why did I believe that? And you make a resolution to try and avoid it in the future." It 's that Art of War kind of epiphany "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger sort of thing" My initial inspiration was my career and the climb all musicians are on, but I also drew from the angst surrounding the supposed decline of Western Society and the bleak outlook for the American Dream and ideal. I guess on both fronts you have to just say hey it's been a long way up just to come back down, and things may frustrate me, but I must keep climbing and moving forward, why go back?

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
