This song is from the album Welcome to the New(2014), released on Feb 25, 2014.
I loved the message in this song, a reminder of how everything that happens to us and every decision that we make are the factors that make up who we are. I loved the production and the emotion in the vocals. The rhythm and the guitars felt really groovy and tight. The bass could have been improved, it felt a little dull and uninspired. The background vocals really helped the song glue together. Thanks to Mkong for the song suggestion.

[VERSE]
G
Dear younger me
G
Where do I start
Em                   D              C
If I could tell you everything that I have learned so far
G
Then you could be
G
One step ahead
Em                   D         C
Of all the painful memories still running thru my head
D               Em                   C
I wonder how much different things would be
C            G
Dear younger me,
[INSTRUMENTAL] G Em D C
G
Dear younger me
G
I cannot decide
Em                            D       C
Do I give some speech about how to get the most out of your life
G
Or do I go deep
G
And try to change
Em                           D            C
The choices that you’ll make cuz they’re choices that made me
D       Em           C
Even though I love this crazy life
D              Em           C
Sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride
G                 Em D C
Dear younger me, dear younger me
[INSTRUMENTAL] Am G D x2
Am                  G
If I knew then what I know now
D
Condemnation would’ve had no power
Am                  G             D
My joy my pain would’ve never been my worth
Am             G
If I knew then what I know now
D
Would’ve not been hard to figure out
C
What I would’ve changed if I had heard
G
Dear younger me
G
It’s not your fault
Em                         D         C
You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross
G            Em D C
Dear younger me
[BRIDGE]
G
You are holy
G
You are righteous
G
You are one of the redeemed
Em
Set apart a brand new heart
C
You are free indeed
G
Every mountain every valley
G
Thru each heartache you will see
Em
Every moment brings you closer
D       C
To who you were meant to be
G                Em D C
Dear younger me, dear younger me
G
You are holy
G
You are righteous
G
You are one of the redeemed
Em
Set apart a brand new heart
C
You are free indeed [x3]
