Think You Know Me Video Lyrics By Kendrickk Superstarr Youngg

For Carter Jones, life couldn’t get any better than it is at the moment. His parents attended his school event together for the first time since he stepped into high school three years ago. His duet with Cassandra Higgins was a semi-success if not for the little wrong note she sang at the end, overall it was still great. They won third prize for the annual talent show.

 

 

 

“Great show, you guys!” Mr. Longford gushed as he entered the back stage. He gave Cassandra a pat on the back. “That was great, great, great. Even Mrs. Reyes was impressed. I could see it in her eyes.” He chuckled then he turned his attention on Carter who was busy fixing up his guitar. “Good job, Carter! You are really something with that guitar.”

 

 

Carter felt blood rush to his face in embarrassment. He wasn’t used to being praised so openly. “Thanks, Mr. Langford. It’s because of your mentoring.” He replied.

 

 

Mr. Langford grinned. “I know, kid.” He placed an arm over the Carter, “What do you guys say we head over to get some pork barbeque two blocks down? My treat!” He glanced at Cassandra who was texting on her phone. “You can invite your posé, Cass.”

 

 

Cassandra beamed. “Awesome! Thank you, Mr. Longford! I’ll go and call them.” She rushed out of the backstage. “We will meet you at the exit gate!”

 

 

 

“Yep!” Mr. Longford replied, “Walk with me, Carter.”

 

 

The two walked towards the exit gate a few yards away. “You know, Carter, I used to be really good with the guitar too, but then I stopped. I got busy with school and other priorities started to pile on top of each other.” Mr. Longford began. He shoved his hands inside his black coat’s front pocket. His blue eyes looked distant, like he was deep in thought. “I still know how to play it but I have lost my… zing. I am no longer into it as I was back in the days.”

 

 

Carter nodded.

 

 

“I guess, what I want to say is that you really have talent with the guitar and I heard you made the song you and Cass sang on stage. That was good.” He continued. “I want you to apply for a musical scholarship in New York’s School of Music. I’ve read your college plans and I know you are focused on business courses. That’s fine but you have real talent, kid. It would be a waste not to cultivate it.”

 

 

Carter nervously licked his lower lip before he replied, “Gee, thanks, Mr. Longford. It means a lot hearing that coming from you. I’ll think it over.”

 

 

“Sure. Let’s go eat pork.”

 

 

 

After binge eating on delicious grilled pork, Carter hurried home to have dinner with his parents. All of the lights were on when he arrived at their two-storey victorian home down in the suburbs of Long Island. He wasn’t surprised to see a lot of guests inside. His dad often held parties without letting the family know. It’s just a surprise party for everyone.

 

 

In their foyer, a banner that said: CONGRATULATIONS GIDEON AND CARTER! was seen hanging. “Congratulations, Gideon?” Carter whispered. Did his dad have good news? Was his parents gettimg back together? But then, if that’s the case, his mom’s name should be there too.

 

 

“Hiya, C!” Jill Jones greeted when she noticed Carter in the foyer. They were cousins from his father’s side. They had the same blue eyes and dark hair. “You are late to your own celebration. We saw your performance.”

 

 

Carter was confused. “What do you mean? You were at school?”

 

 

“No, silly. Your dad took a video of it and played it at the living room earlier.”

 

 

 

Carter let out a groan. That was so embarrassing! All of his relatives and probably his dad’s friends saw his performance. He sang too! How will he be able to face them now? With eyes cast downward, Carter hurried inside the home and prayed that no one will notice him but of course, since most were waiting for his arrival he was quickly seen.

 

 

 

“Carter! Babe! Over here!” It was his mom. She was waving at him to come closer. Defeated. He managed to give his mom a small smile. They didn’t look the same at all but Carter could see tht he had her nose and her affinity to anything musical. She had her blonde hair in a loose bun and she put on light make-up which was still noticeable for Carter. Barbara gave her son a quick hug when he finally arrived to where she was standing with her friends. “Oh, darling! Where did you go? We’ve been waiting for you to arrive for two hours.” She stated. “Since we have already told everyone, I’ll tell you myself… no wait, your dad and I will tell you together.”

 

 

Barbara grabbed Carter’s hand and dragged him to where Gideon was. “Honey, Carter’s here.” She called then gestured the two to follow her upstairs.

 

 

“That was a great performance, kid.” His dad began when they were alone in his parent’s bedroom. “I never knew you liked music.”

 

 

 

“You never attended my school events.” Carter stated.

 

 

His mom gave him a look thst clearly says to be nice. “Anyway, Carter, we have great news for you.” She began then glanced at his dad. They both nodded at the same time.

 

 

“We are moving!” They both announced in unison, taking Carter aback.

 

 

Gideon placed an arm over Barbara’s shoulder. “Your mom and I, we’ve been fixing our issues and we have both agreed to focus on family so we are moving to a small town called Highlands. It’s up north!” He was saying.

 

 

“You will love it! The whole town looks something out of a postcard. You can hike, go kayaking, or whatever camp! You like that, right?” Barbara added, looking a little hopeful. “Plus it isn’t too crowded. No worries, they have a mall and popular fastfood joints. It’s not all mountain.”

 

 

 

Carter blinked. “My life is here. Mr. Longford wants me to get a music scholarship.”

 

 

 

“You can still do!” His mom quickly reassured. “We just think this is needed for our family… to get away from the city, you know. Everything is so stressful here. In a small town, we can concentrate on strengthening our bonds, focusing on each other…”

 

 

“Why would you want a music scholarship? I need you to take over the business when you grow up. Didn’t we already agree that a business course is what we will be aiming for?” His dad suddenly cut in.

 

 

“Yes, dad, but studying music won’t hurt.”

 

 

 

“Yes, it will hurt our family’s business. You can study that on your free time or whatever.” His dad pushed. “Back to the topic, we will be moving in two weeks.”

 

 

Carter was just… speechless. First, they tell him that his performance was great then they discourage him from getting into music. Second, they decided to move on their own. Never did they ask for his opiniom when his life was going to get affected too. He didn’t bother saying anything. Instead, he just walked out and locked himself up in his room. It wasn’t like anything he will say will make a difference. Plus his mom looked so happy to be moving.

 

 

Good bye, New York in two weeks it was.

    Hi Kendrick! Videos with lyrics are always nice to watch and hear. Much appreciate that. What comes to the song, I think you should articulate your words better on the beat. Beat is nice and calm though. Keep doing your thing and you definitely raise yourself to higher level. Peace.

    Hello Kendrickk,

    Your site is a clean and professional site!

    It is also very familiar because you expose your passion of singing in the little clip you display!

    Singing is not easy you have a long way to go and to practice every day. I’m the only person in the family that can’t sing but the others are really musical!

    My mother could sing very well I miss her voice, she passed away a few years ago.

    Maybe you have to work more on your articulation and learn to breathe while singing.

    It was a pleasure to comment on your site and I wish you success!

      Thanks. I have a lot of work to do I do agree on that. I believe everyone can sing but you just got to practice to get there. You are going to have to work on your singing as well if you want to get better just like you told me lol. It’s all going to workout though. I am sorry for your lost as well. I appreciate the feedback.

    I love your site. And the “Think you know me” video/song is really unique. Here’s why. It’s natural. You don’t have a lot of produced voice sounds that make you sound like everyone else. You also are very honest, and raw, and that makes for authentic writing.

    This reminds me of slam poetry. Very cool.

    I do have a question. I went to the “about” page and didn’t see anything written there. ??

      Thanks Elizabeth. I appreciate it. I put a lot of thought into making the Think You Know Me Song.

      & I left the about page blank intentionally but only for the time being.I do plan on updating it soon.

    Very introspective song, it provides a lot of deep room for thought! I am also a singer/songwriter. I think that you could market this well by creating a longer article about the song and lyrics, like say around 1,000 words. Also, blogging about other people’s music with respect to good keyword research could help to promote the songs on your site.

    Very interesting and unique video you shared on your website, your music had a nice beat to it. What type of music would you put your video in as?

    Nice beat bro! How’d you come up with this one? The vocal sound is definitely unique and not too processed, along with a pretty cruisy beat underneath works really well.

    You’ve got an interesting mix of topics on your site here,, I’ll keep it bookmarked for some future tips and insight…

    Hi Kendrickk I enjoyed your video “Think You Know Me” You are projecting a lot of raw emotion which brings you closer to your audience. People who struggle everyday to make ends meet will relate to this video. Your approach to how you handle it is a great message for all that watch your inspiring video.

      Hey Maureen and thanks. I just want them to feel my vibes. Not only that I think a lot of people can just relate to it in some kind of way. If they can then they can understand me and possible understand why I do what I do. If they can’t then they may like it but then again they may not. It still will be cool either way. Thanks for the feedback.

    Hello Kendrick,
    I can tell you were inspired to write this one. What type of instrument was used for the recording? I really loved that sound. I would echo Toni’s words about articulating your lyrics expressing one’s self through music should be heard loud and clear. Keep writing every day and you’ll be pleased with the music you discover within your self. I know because I have. Thanks for this post, Kendrick

      Hey Rich,

      I really was inspired to write this from many things that happened in my life. You can say I was pushed. The main instrument was a piano in the recording. I am working on articulating my words, but I think its because my voice is so deep. Thanks. I appreciate the feedback.

    Hey Kendrickk
    I just spent some time on your site. I was very interested in your post about fruits and vegetables. For the past 4 years or so, my wife and I have followed a diet consisting of 80% fruit. As you have described in your post, we learned of all of the benefits that are contained in fruits and vegetables.

    Fruits look and taste good and there are so many combinations that you can do. Our favourite is grapefruit and cherries.

    We also use lemons because of all that they give. Almost every day we squeeze the juice of a lemon over cut up fruit.

    Avocados are something we discovered recently. Did you know that you can mix avocado with cocoa powder and some agave syrup to make a chocolate filling that is unbelievable?

    Hey Kendrick. This song had a nice chill feel to it. I liked its ease to listen to. I think if you could possibly articulate the words with a little more space so they are bit more articulate it would make it even more effective. Also, perhaps adding more inflections to the tone of your voice would add a little more interest and capture more rhythm within so certain hit points would be highlighted a little more. Great website by the way!

    Hey Kendrick,

    It’s nice to run into other musicians online. Your song sounds great by the way. I would say maybe practice saying the words out loud, a little work on the articulation, but not bad! I don’t think I could’ve done much better myself. Keep up the good work and never give up! 🙂

I can tell you have a drive to move forward because you made this awesome site and sharing your heart out. Make sure to stay consistent and keep making songs that I wouldn’t mind my kids listening to!

    Hi Kendrickk
    This is a very special song you made there. I don’t know nothing of this style of music but I listened very careful to your song. I am very happy with the lyrics on the video. I am a great music lover and lyrics are very important for me. In your case I must say, the lyrics makes your song. They are taken from everyday life. I’m sure it’s very recognizable to many people.
    Wish you lots of success and greats songs.

      Hey Philip

      I appreciate you taking the time to listen to it. Although the verses are kind of fast I put in the lyrics so that people would know what I was saying. Once they know what I am saying then they can get a feel of my music like you did. I would not say it is a master piece, but I am still trying to find my style. With time it will only get better. Thanks for the feedback.

    Hey man, I think the lyrics to this song is very meaningful. I can really relate to you because I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth either. You’ve been through some tough times and I feel ya brother.

    As for the mix, I think your vocals could have been more clearer, because at some points in the song, your diction is a little bit hard to hear. But other than that, I really like the beats and songwriting.

    Keep up the good work!
