Stay strong, stay foolish, never give up
Never let down, Always hold on to
Hope in your heart what caused you to drop?
What flagged you down? There might be no Reason

Please stop ruminating
It‘s only frustrating
Swallow your thoughts
And don‘t throw them back up again

Games played by the mind can be rough and unfair
No ref around, no time for losers
Don‘t be too hard on yourself if you care
I got plenty of reasons for you to go on for
I show ya

Please stop contemplating
It‘s only frustrating
Follow your heart
The beats bring you back up again

Please stop hesitating
If you feel forsaken
Follow the march
For freedom and come back again

Dear John Amsterdam, Netherlands

Dear John is the musical alter-ego of Dirk-Jan Smit. A 28 year old singer-songwriter living in the Capital Amsterdam. His catchy pop and thought-through acoustic rock build a repertoire of songs about hope, traveling, light-heartedness, love and vibes of the good life.

These are beautiful stories which, in combination with fine rhythms and feel-good melodies, lead to lovely and personal songs.
