I wish that I could say that I was in a “better place” when I found out the ; It would make for a far more polished and respectable ; But I think back to that night: praying on the floor at 2am as Tricia went to the bathroom to take the pregnancy test I’d just purchased from ; I was ; Scared to start working on new ; Scared of trying again and ; Scared of the process of staring at myself through a page and seeing someone that I wasn’t proud ; Someone that I didn’t ; Someone that wasn’t ready to be a dad.
I’ve always had some make-believe image in my head of who I would be as a ; I held on to clear expectations of where I wanted be in my career, my age, my level of self-care, and my ; I basically assumed that I'd have it all ; But in actuality the hypothetical “dad" version of me looked completely different than the man whose heart was beating out of his chest on the carpet, praying to a god or spirit I hadn’t talked to in ; When Tricia walked out of the bathroom, I ;And I knew I had to change.

When you try to escape yourself, life has an interesting way of creating situations that force you to come ; To look at who you ; This is why “Growing up” felt like the right song to re-emerge ; It’s where I’ve been the last year, through all the ups and ; We didn’t want to do a big campaign or anything over the top with ; We just wanted to put out good music, directly to the people that have been here since the ; Thank you for your ;Hope you enjoy.
And if you’re wondering…
Our daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty was born 2 months ago on May ; There is nothing like the joy and happiness that comes from bringing a baby into this ; She has filled my heart in ways that I never knew were ; She is the love of my ; This song is for ;
