Lyrics

Magic

Sometimes I want to escape 
from thoughts in my head 
that lead me astray

Sometimes I wish I could levitate 
Spread my wings and 
ascend to a higher state

Oh oh, I’m a true believer 
That magic exists in a lonely dreamer 
Oh let your spirit shine
If you’re emanating love 
Let it free your mind

Sometimes I have to admit
My pride gets so strong I won’t let you in

Sometimes I need to forgive myself
So I can be of use to somebody else

Oh oh, I’m a true believer 
That magic exists in a lonely dreamer 
Oh let your spirit shine
If you’re emanating love 
Let it free your mind

We all have our own higher calling
When it’s lost in the midst we start falling
Out of struggle and pain 
Hardships and shame
We can beat all the odds
And find our way

Oh oh, I’m a true believer 
That magic exists in a lonely dreamer 
Oh let your spirit shine
If you’re emanating love 
Let it free your mind

Oceans

Never had wings

but I learned how to fly

by studying the greats

Now I'm one with the sky

And there's no going back

My feet have left the ground

Keep my head in the stars

And I'm never coming down

Some days my life plays out in slow motion

when I'm manifesting sounds that span across oceans

Some days my mind won't let me be

Till I come to understand that everybody needs a dream

I find my peace 

when II step back and breath

Complete the impossible 

and come to believe

There's no mountain too high

No valley too low

I spread love through my music 

and watch as it grows

Some days my life plays out in slow motion

when I'm manifesting sounds that span across oceans

Some days my mind won't let me be

Till I come to understand that everybody needs a dream

No expectations

I do this for my soul

If you don't get the message

you don't need to know

Some days my life plays out in slow motion

when I'm manifesting sounds that span across oceans

Some days my mind won't let me be

Till I come to understand that everybody needs a dream

Eternal Love

I don’t mind when the seasons change
And the leaves fall to the ground
I don’t mind when the cold air bites 
And the rain comes pouring down
I don’t mind the shades of spring time
And long hot summer days
Most of all I love every moment 
I share with you today

Years go by in the blink of an eye
Memories fade, but the stories survive
Holding onto what feels right 
I will stay by your side 
as the day turns to night
With eternal love as my guide

I don’t mind if the days go by 
and we’re living in a dream
I don’t mind if it’s all a lie 
and we stay in make believe
I don’t mind if the years go by 
And I forget who I used to be
As long as I can pass the time 
With you right next to me

Years go by in the blink of an eye
Memories fade, but the stories survive
Holding onto what feels right 
I will stay by your side 
as the day turns to night
With eternal love as my guide

New Direction

Been here before
There's a full moon rising
Out of the dark
Into a clear horizon

I don't know why
Something inside is telling me
Run for your life
Run‘til you're free from the fire

Waiting for something that doesn't exist anymore 
But you can't get it out of your head
Maybe it's time for a change 
But you can't stand the fear of a new direction

Been there before
Now the sun is shining 
Everything's right
Beauty is multiplying

I don't know why
Something just won't stop telling me
You deserve more
Why don't you settle the score

Waiting for something that doesn't exist anymore 
But you can't get it out of your head
Maybe it's time for a change 
But you can't stand the fear of a new direction

Open the door
It’s been there all along 
Welcome the day
And know that you belong

Miles Away

Don't know much about anything 
The more I try, the less I claim to know 
How to surrender control 
I just can't seem to get enough 
Maybe I can learn to trust and grow 
Out of my fear into hope 

 

Sometimes I want to start over 
When nothing's going my way 
Sometimes I lose my composure 
When everything I need feels like it's miles away 

 

I don't want to be left behind 
Traveling the depths of time alone 
Destined for nowhere to go 
Somewhere out in the in between 
Can't stop thinking life's a dream we all share 
Even after we're not there 

 

Sometimes I want to start over 
When nothing's going my way 
Sometimes I lose my composure 
When everything I need feels like it's miles away

Long Time Coming

Been a long time 
Been a long time coming 
You already know 
Now it's my time 
Time to hit the ground running 
Get out and hit the road 

I was a fool for never seeing 
I was so lost but didn't know 
Woke up to find all I needed 
Was to leave my fears behind and let it go 

Headed out of town 
Northbound, keep going 
Where the wild things roam 
Won't stop till I get where the water's flowing 
Never coming home 

I was a fool for never seeing 
I was so lost but didn't know 
Woke up to find all I needed 
Was to leave my fears behind and let it go 

Been a long time 
Been a long time coming 
You already know 
Now it's my time 
Time to hit the ground running 
Get out and hit the road

Part of Life

I'm starting over again 
No matter what it takes 
I can't expect to win 
Without making mistakes 
I appreciate 
All my ups and downs 
No matter if I fall 
I get up off the ground 

I won't waste away without a fight 
Time may pass, but I won't let it pass me by 
I won't quit as long as I'm alive 
I may fail 'cause it's just a part of life 

Used to be invisible 
No matter how I tried 
Couldn't seem to get past 
How to simply survive 
So I bottled it up 
With nothing left to give 
I was losing myself 
Until I learned how to live 

I won't waste away without a fight 
Time may pass, but I won't let it pass me by 
I won't quit as long as I'm alive 
I may fail because it's just a part of life 

When I don't have the strength 
To take another step 
I inhale the love 
I receive with every breath 
When I'm feeling afraid 
Don't know what to do 
I picture the power 
Of love shining through 

I won't waste away without a fight 
Time may pass, but I won't let it pass me by 
I won't quit as long as I'm alive 
I may fail because it's just a part of life

Weather

I find my inspiration underneath all kinds of places 
Hidden in the many faces I have yet to know 
I choose my destination based on all my calculations 
Till I'm reminded I was never in control 

Sometimes I want to change the weather 
Sometimes I try to change your mind 
Sometimes I worry about the future 
Sometimes I want to press rewind 

I find there's nothing like being wrong to make things right 
Being smart doesn't make you wise and I don't have a clue 
That's when I realized it doesn't matter how hard you try 
You can live in a bold-faced lie, but it doesn't make it true 

Sometimes I want to change the weather 
Sometimes I try to change your mind 
Sometimes I worry about the future 
Sometimes I want to press rewind 

Just when I think I've got it all figured out 
Something is waiting to bring me down 
Pick up the pieces that I left behind 
There's something more that I have yet to find 

Sometimes I want to change the weather 
Sometimes I try to change your mind 
Sometimes I worry about the future 
Sometimes I want to press rewind

Sutures

Pressure is building 
The ceiling is caving in 
Breathing constricted 
Chemicals shifting again 

What more can I do as I wait for inspiration? 
Out of the past, to an unknown destination 
Starving for light, of a bright new future 
Stuck in the dark as I nurse these sutures 

It's all too familiar 
Illusions won't let me rest 
Wish I could show you 
These voices keep spinning around in my head 

What more can I do as I wait for inspiration? 
Out of the past, to an unknown destination 
Starving for light, of a bright new future 
Stuck in the dark as I nurse these sutures

Nothing's Ever Promised

Sunshine put a spell on me 
Close my eyes so I can receive 
Vibrations put my mind at ease 
Give praise for this moment I live and breathe 

'Cause nothing's ever promised 
The future's never guaranteed 
Living is a hustle 
But loving somebody is free 

Moonlight show me how to see 
When darkness takes ahold of me 
And there's no sight of victory 
I surrender control and I'm at peace 

'Cause nothing's ever promised 
The future's never guaranteed 
Living is a hustle 
But loving somebody is free 

I was searching for truth 
in all the wrong places 
When real life exists 
In between the spaces 
Across the unknown 
I'm still finding my way 
I think in black and white 
But this world is full of gray 

And nothing's ever promised 
The future's never guaranteed 
Living is a hustle 
But loving somebody is free
