about

Motive was a tribute song to Jay Gregory who passed in 2010, the grandfather of Lee Caruso Jr. Jay was a successful entrepreneur and inspired him in many ways. He even helped him invest in his first piece of recording equipment at age 16 in which would grow into a recording studio named after him (JKG Studios in Pittsburgh, PA). Lee says, "This song to me was not only a tribute, but a reminder on how important family is and people we love. From unconditional love, we get strength and support that can help us get through our rocky journey's to success." The acoustic version became a live favorite by accident. Big Atlantic is well known for breaking gear on stage, during a live show in 2013, they had to call an audible when some of their gear started malfunctioning. This was the first time Motive was played acoustically.

Track Name: Motive (Acoustic)
My heart beats wild,
And still I see you stand,
Fighting for the last chance,
To make me a man,
I’ll always know truth,
The way you held my hand,
The kinds of things you told me,
Will always be my friend,
Ohhh

Sometime you had to go away,
Knowing this would set you free,
Kidnap all my memories,
And show the ones that doubted me hoooohhh,

I think its time to go,
Thank you for the motivation,
Watch me grow,
I think its time to go,
Thank you for the motivation,
Watch me grow,

The days may be gone,
I may not see you now,
But someday I will,
And I’ll take down my frown,
I see you happy,
Just like you knew,
Waiting for me,
To come back to you,
Ohhhh

Sometime we all go away,
Knowing this would set you free,
Kidnap all my memories,
Let it motivate your wildest dreams hooohhh,

I think its time to go,
Thank you for the motivation,
Watch me grow,
I wanted you to know,
Thank you for the motivation,
Watch me grow,

And I will find you,
And I will greet you,
And I will know who you are,
I know you will remember me,
I hope you know,
It’s because of you,
That I’m hoping you can hear this tonight,

I think its time to go,
Thank you for the motivation,
Watch me grow,
I wanted you to know,
Thank you for the motivation,
Watch me grow,
I think its time to go,
Thank you for the motivation,
Watch me grow,
I wanted you to know,
Thank you for the motivation,
Watch me grow,
Watch me grow,
Watch me grow,
Watch me grow,
Watch me grow,
Watch me grow,
