Hold On 03:49
Day by Day 02:54
(Chorus) I don’t think I know the answer I don’t mind I live life day by day When I’m lost it doesn’t matter I’ll move on and find another way (Verse) I don’t pretend I got it figured out Many times I am full of doubt Life a mystery, a crazy dream Things ain’t always what they seem Some cling to ideas their entire life I try to keep on growing and free myself from strife It’s hard at times, yeah, I won’t deny But I don’t need fear to be a better guy (Chorus) 3x
Good to Go 03:59
(Verse) To the world of music, that’s where I go To feel the beat and let it flow Through my body and through my mind Gives a rush that feels so fine I’m addicted but that’s OK Got no regrets at the end of the day The only way I’ll ever stay sane Is to always have music running through my brain (Chorus) Music makes my life go ‘round It lifts me up when I am down Any time I feel the flow Music’s there so I’m good to go (Verse) There’s nothing like music to my ears The sound of a crowd that cheers A feeling that can only be found When you strike that chord and hear that sound That lifts you up oh so high Like a bird soaring in the sky By now you’re feeling out of sight You’re good to go for the whole damn night (Chorus) 2x
Get Up 04:14
(Chorus) So get up and hold your head up high Try again and reach for the sky To all your yesterdays say goodbye Today’s a new day you’ll find a way to get by (Verse) Life isn’t for the faint of heart There are endless possibilities but who knows where to start There are good days and there are bad The latter always seem to drive us mad One day you feel like you’re in control Everything you do just soothes your soul The next day comes and you can barely get by You’re down on your luck and you’re wondering why The day-to-day struggle is so hard on you In case you were wondering it’s hard on me too But that’s the way life goes up and down You’re either up and about or you’re on the ground (Chorus) x3
Feel so Good 04:11
(Verse) Can’t that I’m satisfied But I’m feeling so revived Was lost without any hope Yes on a slippery slope I found a way to let go I just let the music flow I draw my strength from within And love the skin that I’m in And you know that is why (Chorus) I feel so good inside So free no need to hide I struggle but I know The seeds I plant may grow (Verse) Everyday is a fight And when it’s not it ain’t right I strive to reap what I sow And move to where I can grow Don’t care what price I must pay I need love to lead the way (yes I need it) Can’t only take so I give And love the life that I live (yes I love it) And you know that is why (Chorus) (Bridge) I fooled around and had my fun My mind was always on the run I wasted time but I must say I made friends along the way (Chorus)
When I Fall 03:05
When I Fall Lyrics (Chorus) Don’t hide when the sky’s grey Running is the long way When I fall yes it’s OK Chains won’t hold me down today (Verse) Sometimes I’m low sometimes I’m high but I always find a way to get by There are days, I try so hard Fly right in let down my guard I get hurt then I get better Ain’t no storm that I can’t weather No time to say goodbye I’ll be fighting ‘till I die (Chorus) (Verse) I can’t stop its time to go Can’t look back it this much I know I gotta keep up with the flow Straight ahead there is room to grow So there’s no need to be concerned I got up when I got burned To share what I have learned Yes, to share what I have earned (Chorus) 2x
(Verse) Lover lady can’t you see That I need you here with me And why does everything feel so wrong? Why is my mind a mess when you are gone? And I can’t help I’m in misery We’re both alone and together we must be I wanna hold you in a love embrace Before I fall from grace (Chorus) I’m dreaming of you I’m thinkin’ about you Do you dream of me too Do ya baby do ya (Verse) Loving you is on my mind With you I long to be intertwined The touch of your lips would feel They help me through the lonely night The days are long when your not here with me It’s where you are baby is where I wanna be I’m thinking of you every single day The tough is here to stay (Chorus) (Bridge) Yes I can’t fall asleep Wanting our eyes to meet It’s when I close them eyes I see you by me side And reach for your hand Stuck in my dream land I wake to find that you are gone I’ve had enough this can’t go on (Chorus) 2x
Song of Hope 04:06
(Verse) Don’t need a reason to be me Yes I was made to be proud and free Don’t need to give no reason why Just do what I must to get by Don’t have no need for power and greed But my life is mine for it I’ll bleed Battled my demons everyday To keep the darkness inside at bay (Chorus) And a song of hope I’ll play Same as yesterday When I fall, I get stronger And stand up, much longer Look for love when I lose my way (Verse) And I if I’ve done you any harm Make haste and sound the alarm Expose my dark to the light I’ll do my best to make it right And if I done you any harm Make haste and sound the alarm Expose my darkness to the light I’ll do my best to make it right (Chorus) 2x
(Verse) Oh I’ve got a feelin’ That it’s my heart you’re stealing Been down this road before Comin’ back for more Babe I know you won’t let me down I just want to have you around Yeah you do somethin’ to me Without you I’m in misery (Chorus) Can’t get you out of my mind Can’t leave the thought behind No matter how hard I try My heart I can’t deny (Verse) When you are away form me At your side’s where I wanna be And so I try to hold on Thinkin’ of you from dusk ‘till dawn I try at first then I start to see Being with you just sets me free And when everyday is through All that’s left is the thought of you (Chorus) (Bridge) When I think of you I see sunshine And every new date feels like the very first time Every kiss is a feeling of bliss And when you’re gone, baby, gone Your kisses are missed (Chorus) 2x
