Last summer I traveled to Seattle to meet my producer and get a feel for the studio that I would be staying at for two months. As I got on the plane to return home, this idea for a song about new beginnings and an exciting journey popped into my head. I brought this little snippet of a tune to the table when we started pre-production work for the CD, very raw and rough, but we knew it had to be included on the disc.

In order to complete the song, I spent several days sitting on the beach, overlooking the Puget Sound, contemplating what I was doing with my life and how my whole world was going to change with the release of my new CD. The lyrics evolved from there and “Here I Go” was born. This song truly embodies my recording experience and the change that took place inside of me.

It is a song about having courage and strength to accomplish your goals. It’s about the unknown and the possibility of greatness. Most importantly, this song represents that moment where you realize that everything you’ve dreamed of is coming true.                Jayme Dawicki

Here I Go Lyrics

Oh with an oceanview

And a skyline that sings to you

Come on – I’ve been waiting so long

Bright eyes like a child

Exploring the world so wild

Come on – Oh come on

Are you ready, ready for your life to change

Ready, are you ready for a change

Here I go, Here I go

Oh with my hand stretched high

Everything feels right this time

Come on – I’ve been waiting so long

I’m miles from home

Standing like I’ve somehow grown

Come on – Oh come on

Are you ready, ready for your life to change

Ready, for you ready for a change

Here I go, Here I go

Here I go, Here I go

Stop and breathe

Just take in the scene
