With uplifting lyrics like hard times will make you crazy, but with a little luck, we’ll look back and say we made it, “On the Way Up” shines a positive light over the gloomy shadow that 2020 left behind.
“It’s been a crazy year,” Megan explains. “Writing this song was a great reminder for me that even when it doesn’t feel like it, we are moving the needle and getting closer to our dreams each day. I hope this song can be a reminder to others as well. Good things are coming. We are all on the way up.”
