Track Name: On My Way
it's all fuzzy and hazy in here
remember the time when I could see clearly
I'm past the point of no return
not far out, can almost see it burn
I'm on my way

there's no way I'm not giving in
no chance in hell I'm spinning that thing
around 180, it looks completely wrong
to you maybe, to me it gained, got strong
I'm on my way

I'm on my way to you climbing to the top
I'm on my way

can hear the sound, just about feel the beat
trust my gut, turn up the heat
end the text, complete the melody
ride that bass to eternity
I'm on my way

sudden moves define the future of mine
creative mind I'm better than fine
in lamest terms, first come, first serve
move along, you're getting on my nerve
I'm on my way

I'm on my way to you climbing to the top
I'm on my way
Track Name: Do-Over
they tried to push me
they tried to convince me
they were busy trying to transform me
into something, that I could never be
change my lyrics, my style and me

this is my do over
this is just the start
this is about who I am
not who you are
this is my do over
just the beginning you will see
no attempt to coax you
into liking me

I did put my foot down
told you what I thought
want to do it my way
turn green into grey

no matter what color
this is my own song
my lyrics , my style to prove you wrong

this is my do over
this is just the start
this is about who I am
not who you are
this is my do over
just the beginning you will see
no attempt to coax you
into liking me
Track Name: When I'm With You
I've been a couple places, and I've seen so many faces
I've heard the voices speak to me in an awkward manner
now I have you, at least you make feel as if I do
we didn't even have to wait to hire a wedding planner

from the moment we met, it was like love at first sight
it hit me like one of those many fists in a fight

there are no words in this world
to describe the feelings that I go through
when I'm with you (when I'm with you)

there is no way anybody can make me feel the way you do
as long as I have you (when I'm with you)

everything I used to do, I totally put aside
everywhere I used to go, I would have gone into a fight
with you by my side, a new life had begun
together we can laugh all day long and have fun

from the moment we met, it was like love at first sight
it hit me like one of those many fists in a fight
that I used to get into without you around
everything is different now, the plane hit the ground

there are no words in this world
to describe the feelings that I go through
when I'm with you (when I'm with you)

there is no way anybody can make me feel the way you do
as long as I have you (when I'm with you)
Track Name: Trapped
I've been trapped for a while
in this dream that I cannot leave
I've saved up, big pile
scared of losing it all, by thieves

I have no place to go for now
I'm trapped in this dream of mine
I have no place to go for now
I long to be released

each and every night I
get caught by something, afflicting
no way to stand, a
chance I give up, I give in

I have no place to go for now
I'm trapped in this dream of mine
I have no place to go for now
I long to be released
Track Name: Turn Around Now
where does your energy come from
recent events forcing us to form
a new way of thinking and open up a door
to a new generation so

turn around now, we're in a dead-end street
turn around now, last chance to change the route to meet
turn around now, demands by nature are crystal clear
turn around now, do you want our planet to suffer defeat

nps go all out to destroy us
time is now to turn this sinking ship around
all we want is sustainable energy for all
the human race is supposed to act, this concerns us all

where does your energy come from
recent events forcing us to form
a new way of thinking and open up a door
to a new generation so

turn around now, we're in a dead-end street
turn around now, last chance to change the route to meet
turn around now, demands by nature are crystal clear
turn around now, do you want our planet to suffer defeat

don’t you dare pretend that you do not care
you can’t just sit at home and think it’ll get
solved by itself get it together before the universe melts
please do not stay calm and act, this concerns you too

where does your energy come from
recent events forcing us to form
a new way of thinking and open up a door
to a new generation so

turn around now, we're in a dead-end street
turn around now, last chance to change the route to meet
turn around now, demands by nature are crystal clear
turn around now, do you want our planet to suffer defeat

we owe it to the next generation
the air we breathe, desperation
haven’t we learned from the past
they’ll thank us that we chose the right path
got the stone rolling into the future
you and me, let’s spare the nature
to save us all, we won’t back down anymore
we'll get up, finally stand tall

where does your energy come from
recent events forcing us to form
a new way of thinking and open up a door
to a new generation so

turn around now, we're in a dead-end street
turn around now, last chance to change the route to meet
turn around now, demands by nature are crystal clear
turn around now, do you want our planet to suffer defeat
Track Name: Standing In The Rain
can't stop recalling
all the memories we share
everything was falling
into ruin, when you weren't there

all the happy pictures
from the places we've been
how could it have been fiction
we used to share a ring

hurt by all the things you've done
blinded by a blackened sun
abandoned in the darkness
when you began to confess

hurt by all the words you spoke
upset by the trust you broke
abandoned me and my pain
left me standing in the rain

I keep getting wetter
from the water coming down
how can this be better
than reaching for the cloud

and tearing it apart
it wouldn't change a thing
you tore up my heart
we used to share a ring

hurt by all the things you've done
blinded by a blackened sun
abandoned in the darkness
when you began to confess

hurt by all the words you spoke
upset by the trust you broke
abandoned me and my pain
left me standing in the rain

why did you leave me
how could you just go
everything we went through
how can I let this go

hurt by all the things you've done
blinded by a blackened sun
abandoned in the darkness
when you began to confess

hurt by all the words you spoke
upset by the trust you broke
abandoned me and my pain
left me standing in the rain
Track Name: Like The Sun
everyday I know
with you I lost my soul
everyday I know
never wanted you to go

but here we are standing so close
can feel my heart pounding through my chest
here we are nothing left to say
please, please, don't go away

in my dreams I see
you protecting me
put up that shield
holding a gun

in my dreams I feel
you looking down on me
watching over me
like the sun

all my life I knew
you're the one for me
cannot change the past
otherwise you'd be here

but here we are standing so close
can feel my heart pounding through my chest
here we are nothing left to say
please, please, don't go away

in my dreams I see
you protecting me
put up that shield
holding a gun

in my dreams I feel
you looking down on me
watching over me
like the sun

what hurts most is seeing you every night
can't break free
can't grow past all of this, all the light
you put over me

in my dreams I see
you protecting me
put up that shield
holding a gun

in my dreams I feel
you looking down on me
watching over me
like the sun
Track Name: Out In The Real World
when I'm in between my own walls
I can dream of a different life without taking the fall
when I play music I like to open the gate
to live in a dream world with no jealousy or hate

out in the real world
I have choices to face
would rather step aside
and be in another place

when I'm writing songs and I ain't sad
all I need to make magic happen is a pen and a pad
when I'm stuck between two dissimilar jobs
the way I choose is my own concern, should not be considered your probs

out in the real world
I have choices to face
would rather step aside
and be in another place

out in the real world
I have to adjust to the setting
would rather go inside
and forget the course I'm heading
Track Name: Maybe
maybe someday the rain is replaced by the sun
maybe someday this could turn into something real

alright so it's tough, it's weird to always talk about
what I want, what my life should be like when it's not
I'm working, I'm struggling, but still do I put on that smile
maybe it's a fake, who knows, maybe it's a lake in a mile
that pours out of my eyes as I cry and pass by
that same routine that you just have to hate after a while
looking, thinking, acting and being like you, what you say is true
I'm actually in the middle of the whole pile
try to convince myself to get back up on my feet
you gotta do better than that to bring me down, no retreat
though now, mumbling to myself, maybe I should quit
I don't fit, the road I should hit, but what if (what if)

maybe someday the rain is replaced by the sun
maybe someday this could turn into something real

maybe I was wrong in the first place to be so selfish
and think Imma get what I want by making just a wish
but that's not on the menu today, just a cold dish
but ain't today the keyword, in this sentence I made
but wait, maybe I'm too optimistic again this time, though let's face it
I'm not the one who's living off the public's dime, I will chase it
I'm finally taking back what was already mine, I won't taste it
I'll own it, respected and disputed, all over the place
there's just the one face to see when you get out of the haze
have to turn it down now, otherwise I'm getting my hopes up
which I'm not, or I shouldn't at least I'm not fucked up
I'm totally aware of my surroundings and all
let's stop it all, I gotta go, to work, to pretend, to fall

oh maybe I will let go to become what life intended
oh maybe I will let go to become what life intended
oh maybe I will let go to become what life intended for me
Track Name: She Won't Let Me In
it's been more than thousand days
that I've got to know her in thousand ways
she always keeps me guessing
letting me know I don't know anything
she conceals everything she can
but I simply don't know

why won't she let me in
been trying for years and years
been over this, shed our tears
she won't let me in

the struggle seemed to increase day by day
nothing ever changes whatever I say
she always keeps me guessing
letting me know I don't know anything
she conceals everything she can
but I simply don't know

why won't she let me in
been trying for years and years
been over this, shed our tears
she won't let me in

why won't she never understand
Track Name: About Me
every day I have to get up in the morning
every hour I have to check my cell for calls
every sec I have to breathe to stay alive
every day I have to pretend to be someone that I'm not

you don't know anything about me
you don't know who I am
you don't know anything about me
you don't know who I am

every night I have to go and get some rest
every week I have to top up the car
every month I have to pay the rent
every day I have to pretend to be someone that I'm not

you don't know anything about me
you don't know who I am
you don't know anything about me
you don't know who I am
Track Name: Get Ready
burned to the bone, by the sun and the tone
tempting is here and will make you explode
will make you blow up, and detonate
get your mind free, that's it mate

when I get ready and hop in my Tahoe
the only real thing missing is you
got a Burban and a red Eldorado
the sun will make you feel alive it's true

enjoy the sun and have a ton of fun
get ready

get right and put your makeup on
get dressed and put that jewelry on
the beat dictates to make your body move
make ya shake it, make ya groove

when I get ready and hop in my Tahoe
the only real thing missing is you
got a Burban and a red Eldorado
the sun will make you feel alive it's true

enjoy the sun and have a ton of fun
get ready
Track Name: Feel You There
so many years, I have been looking for you
where were you all this time, when I was alone
always sad, but knowing you’re somewhere
I’d open the window to feel you there

went from bar to bar, just to end up at home
on the coach, feels like you're closer, still so far
feeling of being comfy in my frame, so rare
I’d open the window to feel you there

out of nowhere you showed up
pulled me out of this misery
with you everything is easy
it’s just so easy to be

we spend time forever living, breathing, just be
we would be together everywhere
won't open the window to have you there
you would just be there
Track Name: Free Wishes
all of you got free wishes and luck
but I'm still down here, I'm still down here
all of this made me realize I'm not
forced to be the same void face as you

unfortunately, I don't fit in
I've seen this room from within, never been
mistaken looks exactly the same
as my memory recalls, what should I tell you
the whole concept is the living proof, hell you
even signed to get in here, right
you just couldn't handle the struggle, the fight
but maybe I don't wanna get signed, don't wanna have luck
like to work hard for the success, I'm up
against the big boys, I know that
carrying all the big guns, rat-tat-tat
I'm not gonna take a step back, just relax
attack from all the sides
with clips, mixtapes and b-sides, besides
the reason I'm insanely ambitious
is only because I've got none of these free wishes

all of you got free wishes and luck
but I'm still down here, I'm still down here
all of this made me realize I'm not
forced to be the same void face as you

now, does it look like I want to
be rich with only 22
making a decent living is one thing
being rich is a completely other, given
I'd like to have a fortune someday
but hell, who defines what a fortune is anyway
do I wanna sell my soul or keep it for eternity
the greed took you over, but what can it do for me
stay focused, don't lose your target then shoot
why do you think I'm here, you big fool
this pool is too small for the both of us, leave
the deceived will release the power I will need

don't underestimate
the power in my heart
that can be released

all of you got free wishes and luck
but I'm still down here, I'm still down here
all of this made me realize I'm not
forced to be the same void face as you

don't underestimate
the power in my heart
that can be released

all of you got free wishes and luck
but I'm still down here, I'm still down here
all of this made me realize I'm not
forced to be the same void face as you
Track Name: Come And Save Me
no idea what happened, though I'm sure I'll find a way
out of this situation, just give me some time
lost all of my hopes, don't know where I'm headed today
yesterday was awful, maybe tomorrow will be fine

all of a sudden, I see you walking down the aisle
I see my life flashing before my eyes

it's raining down on me, though I seem to stay dry
no umbrella is helping me now
the clouds have formed a dark front in the sky
don't understand why or even how

all of a sudden, I see you walking down the aisle
I see my life flashing before my eyes
all of a sudden, I see you hugging and kissing me
I see my life flashing before my eyes
come and save me

have I lost all my senses
have I lost the understanding to survive
I seem to have forgotten what I once wanted
I will revive

all of a sudden, I see you walking down the aisle
I see my life flashing before my eyes
all of a sudden, I see you hugging and kissing me
I see my life flashing before my eyes
come and save me
Track Name: Never Look Back
a tear ran down his cheek
when she told him, when she told him
his knees were feeling weak
when she told him, when she told him

he could see it in her eyes
the thing he expected to happen never
she turned around, gave him a kiss
the last one ever

now they both enter the darkness and begin to fight
for a match, a candle, just any kind of light
they both know it's over, and that's just how it is
they can not escape the truth, but never look back

he still gets glassy eyes
when he looks back, when he looks back
haven't moved on, he tries
to not look back, to not look back

dresses up to get out the house
making sure to get completely wasted
doesn't matter who he hooks up with
just put on that smile, and fake it

alone he's still lost in the darkness, continues to fight
for a match, a candle, just any kind of light
he knows it's all over, and that's just how it is
he can not escape the truth, but never look back

calling her, calling her, calling her
won't make it better
at least he has to try to reach her
to get back together

alone he's still lost in the darkness, continues to fight
for a match, a candle, just any kind of light
he knows it's all over, and that's just how it is
he can not escape the truth, but never look back
Track Name: So Live [Bonus]
if we only took the risk of living from day to day
the adventures we'd experience would never go away
so live
Track Name: Free [Bonus]
go, just head out
get to the club
yes, you have to wear something nice
prepare yourself for anything
let's take it outside
cause we don't care where we dance
we can move
to any kinda groove
weather's crazy, time's getting lazy
maybe if you turn it up a bit baby
take it easy, don't be so hasty
getting dressed, getting crazy

don't worry bout tomorrow
work is out, stress oh no, no
“I'm free”, scream your lungs out
get up on stage and shout

I don't follow no rules
I don't follow no leader
I'm free, I'm free

na, I'm not saying
you should not be organized
having fun is what it's all about
yes tonight is the night
we are only here to sweat
considered a national threat
do not care bout nothing else
look your body how it melts

don't worry bout tomorrow
work is out, stress oh no, no
“I'm free”, scream your lungs out
get up on stage and shout

I don't follow no rules
I don't follow no leader
I'm free, I'm free
