More singing - Only One (Lifehouse)

I've just started working on Only One by Lifehouse. It's just one verse so the size is 1.56MB - not too big. Honest comments (favorable or not) only, please.

Self-discipline

What does it mean? Is it a good thing? If so, how does one develop it?

Here's my attempt at what it means:
The tendency to consistently do things one considers good (to consistently be what one thinks of as good).

I had some other ideas about what it means:
-The tendency to do good things consistently.
-The tendency to do good things even if they are boring or unpleasant.
-The tendency do unpleasant and boring things because one thinks they are good/important to do.


The latter two definitions seem to imply that doing good things is likely or might have to be boring and unpleasant. The last doesn't really seem like a viable description of self-discipline, but it seems like something that people confuse with self-discipline.

I changed it to what a person THINKS of as good because people might have different ideas about what is good, but the concept of self-discipline can sometimes be used to refer to actions of people that most would consider very bad and yet the person thought was good at the time.

Cleaning House - Today's findings

I'm trying to sort things out so my house can be put up for sale. It's fun running across the weird things I've picked up over time. Today I found a set of 5 1/4 floppy disks for Microsoft QuickC. I was tempted to keep them just in case I have a computer that could use them some day, but I'll be, *gulp*, throwing them away.

Songbird

I've been experimenting a bit with singing. I'm not saying I'm any good, so listen at your own risk. Criticism welcome.
