I Was Gonna Cancel - Kylie Minogue



The Experience: You could just cancel. Give in to your fear of failure. Of getting hurt. Of not making the cut. Of discovering that all your doubts were right. But you can't succeed if you don't try. And you can't win if you give up halfway...

Music Video: Kylie Minogue works through her issues on a crowded sidewalk. But she has to do it alone - no one's paying attention. There are problems that no one else can solve for you.

The Meaning of I Was Gonna Cancel: Doubt can keep you on your toes and ensure you do your best. But more often it keeps you on the couch, or still in bed when you should be out testing your dreams. And above all, doubt is poison when you let it grow inside the decisions you've already made, and the love you've already given. Doubt can make us forget who I am.  There will always be low moments - disappointment, badness, doubt - but they can't erase the highs - sun, strength, prayers, love. Unless you cancel...

Ask Yourself: Does it take more courage to cancel, or to keep going?


LYRICS:

I was gonna cancel 
Then I looked into the sky 
Knew the badness won't prevent the sun to shine 
I was gonna cancel 
Then took a sec to realize 
All the disappointment that would trail behind 
I was gonna cancel 
Then you reminded me of who I am 
Everything is clearer 
Then a mirror is to a woman, 
Just the same as a dog is to man 

Just hop out of the bed 
Go ahead face the day
Who cares what you know 
Don't let that in the way 
Shut out all the doubt 
Just out the door 
What's out on other side 
You will never know unless you go go go girl 

I was gonna cancel 
Then I thought about the strength that I got 
From all of the prayers and what it meant 
I was gonna cancel 
Then I realized that time is just money and love, 
Watch how you spend

I was gonna cancel 
Until you reminded me of what I do 
Now I see it clearer 
My best friend is a mirror, look by me, 
And I see all the things I've been through 

Just hop out of the bed 
Go ahead face the day
Who cares what you know 
Don't let that in the way 
Shut out all the doubt 
Just out the door 
What's out on other side 
You will never know unless you go go go girl

What's wrong with saying I love you?
It's nothing to kid about.
Some people going through a struggle,
Trying to scribble it out.
They say attention is a shovel,
It's time to dig 'em out.
You can't just let 'em stay in a bubble,
They'll pop to get it out.

What's wrong with love, love?

What's wrong with love, love?

Just hop out of the bed 
Go ahead face the day
Who cares what you know 
Don't let that in the way 
Shut out all the doubt 
Just out the door 
What's out on other side 
You will never know unless you go go go girl
