02_ Destiny

Destiny calls me

It calls my name

Bright lights and the night life

Breaking out of my small town chains

 

mmm, it's gonna be okay 

I'm gonna get away

 

Driving in the clear moonlight

See all the stars shining bright

I'll be back around someday... 

but I need to escape

Destiny calls me

Away from my home town

I gotta build my own legacy, yeah

 

Packed up while the sun shines

My Mountaineer is ready for the miles

Looked back, I waved goodbye

Get on with my life now with the biggest smile

 

mmm, my dream is coming true

From dirt roads to avenues

 

Driving in downtown tonight

Buildings block out the starlight

I never thought I'd see the day

When I would make my way

Destiny called me

Away to the city

Time to build my own legacy

Time to build my own legacy

03_ Lifetime

You are the sunshine in the rain
You are the breath of fresh air
You are the one who keeps me going
Love for you is overflowing
 
When you are near me
My heart rate increases
My love for you is - forever ceaseless
 
Reverie, I need you to be here with me for eternity
Sweet paramour, how I need you more
You're the only one that I adore
All my love, for you, valentine
I will love you... more than a lifetime
 
I'm weak, you give me so much strength
I'm lost, you always light my way
I'm shy, but you've broken my chains
I'm so in love, I feel it in my veins
 
When you are near me
My heart rate increases
My love for you is - forever ceaseless
 
Reverie, I need you to be here with me for eternity
Sweet paramour, how I need you more
You're the only one that I adore
All my love, for you, valentine
I will love you... more than a lifetime
More than a lifetime

05_ Brave

Going through something new
Plunge right in, just begin
Take a deep breath, for what's next
Make the first step and don't forget

Start a revolution... courage evolution

I am brave; I'm not afraid
I'll make my way; I am brave

Ready now, here I go
Have no fear, my thoughts are clear
My journey has given me
All the strength to break these chains

Start a revolution... courage evolution

I am brave; I'm not afraid


I'll make my way; I am brave

How would I know if I should go
Fear holds me back
I can do it; nothing to it
Zero panic

I am brave; I'm not afraid
I'll make my way; I am brave

08_ Moments

You are the one

With the endless love

Heavenly serenity from you

You are the air

I breathe everywhere

Oxygen it fills my lungs with you

 

In these moments

When I need you

You are always there for me

 

Patient and caring

When I am failing

You always know how to lift me upward

Grace is unending

When pain is descending

Hold my hand when sadness is my world

 

In these moments

When I need you

You are always there for me

06_ Freedom

I could walk right through the fire
The embers burn, smoke rises higher
My lungs are ash, but I breathe you in
Hold my hand, ooh, let me feel your skin

I'm more than I... could ever be
When you're with me, when you're with me
Effortlessly, you make me free
When you're with me, when you're with me

The sea is deep, but I am floating
On a cloud, in the wind we're flowing
See the waves, they crash below me
In your arms, ooh, I feel safety

I'm more than I... could ever be
When you're with me, when you're with me
Effortlessly, you make me free
When you're with me, when you're with me

I see your eyes, they take me over, ooh, ohh
You crack a smile and I lose composure
I lose composure, I lose composure

I'm more than I... could ever be
When you're with me, when you're with me
Effortlessly, you make me free
When you're with me, when you're with me
 

09_ Forever

When we first met then

You brought me back to life

You taught me how to love again

You showed me to the light

And I knew right then

 

You are the breeze in a heat wave

You are the light in the darkest cave

 

You are the better part of me

Alone, I am incomplete

 

You are the bridge across the ocean

You are my glue when I am broken

You are the antidote for all my pain

You are the shelter in the pouring rain

 

When you reach your arm out and

Put your hand on my hand

My heart skips a beat

And I forget to breathe (don't forget, just breathe)

 

I want to be with you forever

For us to always be together

Eternity is not long enough with you

One life is just too short with you

 

You make me so happy

How lucky could I be

So I'm down on one knee

Asking you, "Will you marry me?"

Will you marry me?

Will you marry me?

Will you marry me?

Can you feel it?

Do you fear it?

Do you like it?

Why try to fight?

 

The nerves, they get real bad

Just go do what you planned

I don't understand

 

Just run away like you always seem to do

No matter what, pressure always gets to you

And all the work, all the pain that you went through

Do you continue?

 

My heart's beating

I stop breathing

Inside screaming

What's this feeling?

 

The nerves, they get real bad

Just go do what you planned

I don't understand

 

Just run away like you always seem to do

No matter what, pressure always gets to you

And all the work, all the pain that you went through

Do you continue?

 

Breathe in, breathe out (x4)

Watch as my hands tremble and my legs begin to shake

The nerves are building while the floor I start to pace

Years of preparation, but I'm not ready now

I want to leave, but I just can't turn back now

Time to go now

I'm going for it, ooh

Make them all proud

Here we go (x3)

 

Won't run away like I always used to do

No matter what, courage always gets me through

And all the work, all the knowledge I pursued

I will continue

11_ Remember

I remember getting a phone call from my mother

I remember hearing her tell me about my father

She said he was gone but thankfully he did not suffer

He was in heaven

God beckoned him

 

I always remember

The 1st of September

That was the day that everything changed

I'll always remember

When heaven was entered

By one more angel, one less on earth

Our loss was God's gain

 

Everything thing had changed in such a short amount of time

No one ever had the opportunity to offer their goodbyes

Feel the hurt, the pain, the rage, the loss, and ask God why

He's been in heaven

Since 2007

 

I always remember

The 1st of September

That was the day that everything changed

I'll always remember

When heaven was entered

By one more angel, one less on earth

Our loss was God's gain

04_ Promises

Time's up, I've yet to keep my promise
Trust me, I haven't forgotten
I know, I've yet to remain honest
Broken promise is a lie

Believe me when I tell you that
I will follow through for you
As a matter of fact
I just need a little more time

Time is ticking
Likelihood is slipping
This is just the beginning

Tick tock, time is going by
You said that you'd give it a try
These words have become a lie
Good for you, one more year has gone by

So here we are again now
Nothing has changed since last year
Did you really think I could explain how
I keep on breaking all these promises

Time is ticking
Likelihood is slipping
This is just the beginning

Tick tock, time is going by
You said that you'd give it a try
These words have become your lie
Good for you, one more year goes by

Time's up for you
It's time to move
Need to improve
What am I gonna do?

Tick tock, time is going by
You said that you'd give it a try
These words have become your lie
Good for you, one more year goes by

Promises are broken each year
Apathy will persevere

 

07_ Alive

What a day, what a week, what a month I've had

I just, need a night, free from all demands on me

So, then I call 'em up, my good friends, "meet me at the club"

We just need a night, to just live it up, to erupt, get messed up

 

We step into the disco and the music takes us over, then...

We get up to the counter and we buy a round and down 'em, then

We walk into the next room when we hear the bass is thumpin', then

We get up on the dance floor 'cause the bop has got us jumpin'

(jumpin', jumpin', jumpin', jumpin')

 

We dancin', and we swayin', and we movin' to the rhythm, then...

We livin', and we tryin', 'cause the nae nae is our mission, now...

We drinkin', and we shot'n, w/ good music in the background, and

We laugh'n, and we vibe'n, as we groove'n to the sound

(groove to the sound)

 

Feeling good tonight

Better than alright

See the light in my eyes shining oh so bright

Alive, inside, I like it

 

What a night, feel those vibes, they feel right alright

All these flashing lights, shining bright like dynamite

Time to close, gotta go, hey I know, let's go to our home

It's close by, it's not far, gotta find a ride, cabs drive by, now get inside

 

We get our friends all over 'cause we need to have a party, then

We poppin' bottles to be served; we pourin' cups with lime Bacardi

(we) throwin' shade, we laugh it up, we sing along, we fill them cups

We drink 'em down, we take a shot; we rinse, repeat, we cannot stop

(cannot stop, cannot stop, cannot stop)

 

We dancin', and we swervin', oh, we're movin' to that beat, then...

We twistin', and we curvin', hear that tempo and repeat, but

We lookin' at the timin', and the party starts to die, and

We're thinkin' that this evenin' was the best night of our life

(of our life)

 

Feeling good tonight

Better than alright

See the light in my eyes shining oh so bright

Alive, inside, I like it

 

I wake up in the morning and I feel my head is poundin', so

I walk into the bathroom and I pop a tab of Aspirin, then

I go into the kitchen and I start to make some coffee, then

I look into the next room when I start to feel real queasy

(real queasy, icky, icky, woozy)

 

I'm forgetting all the details and my memory is hazy, so

I grab my phone to take a look and see if I'm just crazy

But my head feels like a hurricane, a BNSF choo-choo train

It must've been the 30 flutes of Joey's favorite Brut champagne

Or the 20 Captains that I drank with no restraint

 

Feeling good tonight

Better than alright

See the light in my eyes shining oh so bright

Alive, inside, I like it

Alive, inside, I like it

12_ Tethered

As gravity pulls me closer to you

Reality hits me and I breakthrough

My apathy gone because of you

I'm happy and strong, I feel brand new

 

I'm tethered to you, forever I do; I'll never refuse my muse

When I'm weathered and clueless, and I don't want to do this

Cause I'm feeling foolish

And we're severed and confused, but nothing could move us, ooh

Because you can't remove us... that would be useless

We always get through this

 

Our souls are bound for eternity

A perfect union in harmony

Our fusion of two beating hearts into one

An evolution of a human

 

I'm tethered to you, forever I do; I'll never refuse my muse

When I'm weathered and clueless, and I don't want to do this

Cause I'm feeling foolish

And we're severed and confused, but nothing could move us

Because you can't remove us... that would be useless

We always get through this

 

When you hold my hand; I step into a dream land

When you look into my eyes; I still feel the butterflies
