Jaymes Young-I'll Be Good

"This video represents the harm we do. We harm ourselves when we harm others. It also reflects the re-birth of a forgiven conscience." Jaymes McFarland, aka Jaymes Young.
Despite his young age, Jaymes has his way to say what's happening. In "I'll be good", I found that he couldn't be more accurate, considering all the violence we witness everyday. I thought it would be nice once in a while to look in the mirror and commit to ourselves to be good. No matter what happens, if each one of us is keeping his promise then this world will be a better place to live in. Sometimes it is hard to blame ourselves, but when we do, we have made half journey to a better end. 
Well said, Jaymes Young! 
Enjoy, music-lovers!




Jaymes Young-I'll Be Good

I thought I saw the devil
This morning
Looking in the mirror, drop of rum on my tongue
With the warning
To help me see myself clearer
I never meant to start a fire
I never meant to make you bleed
I'll be a better man today


I'll be good, I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
For all of the time
That I never could


My past has tasted bitter
For years now
So I wield an iron fist
Grace is just weakness
Or so I've been told
I've been cold, I've been merciless
But the blood on my hands scares me to death
Maybe I'm waking up today


I'll be good, I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
I'll be good, I'll be good
I'll be good, I'll be good


For all of the light that I shut out
For all of the innocent things that I doubt
For all of the bruises I've caused and the tears
For all of the things that I've done all these years
And all
Yeah, for all of the sparks that I stomped out
For all of the perfect things that I doubt


I'll be good, I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
For all of the times
I never could, oh, oh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh
For all of the times I never could
All of the times I never could
