#BurnItDown

#BurnItDown An independent music event to fight cancer with ALEX NESTER!

#BurnItDown ...To Rise Above It! In 2011, Alex Nester and friends ROCKED a full crowd at the Troubadour in Hollywood, CA! Releasing her second album and celebrating her 10th anniversary of being cancer-free, 100% of the show's proceeds were donated to The American Cancer Society and the Marcelle Erian Foundation... #BURNITDOWN RAISED OVER $10,000 FOR A 1-NIGHT, GRASSROOTS SHOW! In 2013, we are going to #BurnItDown bigger...better...HOTTER! "Like" us so that you can keep checking back for updates as we develop this page!

Mission: To celebrate the community for helping her as she became cancer-free, Alex is hosting a benefit concert to share her music with you...but all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to cancer research and patient care! It's going to be a night of music, fun, giveaways and celebrating our successes in the fight against cancer! Come join us! Follow us on Twitter at @BurnItDown2013 All proceeds will be donated in honor of Ola Hudson.

We still canโ€™t wrap our minds around the horrible tragedy that happened at our beloved Borderline Bar & Grill on November 7th. The wounds are still very fresh and very deep, as weโ€™re sure they are for many in the community. In Borderline we found a home, and we will always and forever support them in any way we can.

To the entire Borderline family, we love you and we are here for you. We will rally around you with nothing but the most genuine and heartfelt love and support. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ #BorderlineStrong #TOStrong #Borderline #BorderlineBarandGrill

**LYRICS**

VERSE 1:
I've gotta say the words
Though every letter hurts
Over and over
Will this ever be over?
The world is standing there
Refusing to be fair
Trying to tell me it's over
But I'm not ready to be over

CHORUS:
I am more -- than my looks or my skin
I am more -- than my triumphs or my sins
I am more -- than my losses or my wins
I am more...

VERSE 2:
Try to force the seal
Tell you your fate is real
If you're young or you're older
This time it really is over
But nothing's written yet
The stone has not been set
So I'll continue to soldier
Until I say it is over

CHORUS:
I am more -- than my looks or my skin
I am more -- than my triumphs or my sins
I am more -- than my losses or my wins
I am more...

BRIDGE:
I'm not saying I'm not afraid
But if failure is hell then I've been saved
It's time to exercise my faith
What I believe will relieve
Set me free if I keep on
I've been taught and I've been warned
Lessons come in many different forms
So I'll smile into the face of scorn
Cause I see through the deep
There's a reason to keep on...

Oh I gotta keep on...

CHORUS:
I am more -- than this vessel I'm in
I am more -- than the cards that I'm given
I am more -- than any pain has ever been
I am more...
I am more...
I am more...

**We love and miss you beautiful Jamie!!**
