Symphony

We each have our own separate songs
Lyrics reflecting the life that we’ve been living
But some stories might sound a little empty
If we don’t take a moment to sit and listen

So many times we may go through life
Listening to the sounds our heart plays
But if we listen to people all around us
There’s so much to the story we didn’t say

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Cause every person that you come across
Plays another tune in your heart
But if you blend it all together
It becomes your favorite work of art

Separate we might sound like noise
But together we speak in harmony
And we have a way of bringing out
Each other’s best qualities

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Now i’m starting to pick up on things
Seeing everything in a different light
How everyone i’ve come across in my life
Was the reason my life turned out right

For so long I was barely listening
Only hearing the song playing inside
But now my ears have tuned into
All the reasons why

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Happily Ever After

Another day, Another castle
Another cell I can’t escape from
Another dream I wish would come true
Is my hero ever gonna come?

We all know the story
We’ve grew up on this tale
A happily ever after
Is the story we know so well

But happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings are when
We learn how to break free

Sometimes our own prisons
Are the one’s we’ve created ourselves
And we think our only savior
Is the only one willing to help

But why must we wait
For our own white knight
When there’s a hero inside each of us
If we aren’t afraid to stand up and fight

Cause happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings are when
We learn how to break free

Sometimes we become so blinded
When we keep wishing upon a star
Maybe our happily ever after
Was never that far

What if the hero you were looking for
Was closer then you realized
And the only dragon to be slain
Was the one hiding deep inside

Cause happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings
Are when we learn how to break free
By ourselves

Time Stands Still (update)

On my way heading home
Just like any other night
Riding down the darkened road
Nothing else is in sight

Then suddenly that all changes
When i’m struck from behind
So many things are flying around me
Like the thoughts in my mind

That’s when time stood still
And my life flashed before my eyes
I don’t know what’s coming next
Now that fate sent this suprise

So many things in our lives
Can come at us so unexpected
What will happen to me tomorrow
Will my life change it’s direction

When life leads you down troubled roads
You must always look for that silving lining
Never knowing where that road may lead
Or what you might one day find

That’s when time stands still
And your life flashes before your eyes
You don’t know what’s coming next
Now that fate sent this suprise

But every road that we go down
Whether it’s good or it’s bad
Proves just what we’re capable of and
To appreciate everything we have

Cause each and every heartache
Every pain that we go through
Will one day lead you to your future
With the better part of you

That’s when time stands still
And your life flashes before your eyes
You don’t know what’s coming next
Now that fate sent this suprise

So much happen in an instant
Your whole life could be turned upside down
But sometimes the happiest beginnings
Are when you turn your whole life around

That moment when
Time stands still…

Time to Spread My Wings

I’m rushing to the airport
Packed everything i’ve ever owned
Don’t know where I’m going
Or if i’ll ever come back home

I know i’ve been around this town
And I know every place by name
But how am I supposed to grow up when
Every night is the same

So now it’s time for me to do this
It’s time for me to spread these wings
Who know’s what will happen next for me
What my future will bring

But it’s time to spread these wings

Now i’m sitting in the chair
Waiting for them to call my name
But no matter what happen’s next
I’ll be the only one to blame

Then I finally get that call
And I grab my bags to walk away
I know it’s best for me leave right now
Then to stay here another day

So now it’s time for me to do this
It’s time for me to spread these wings
Who know’s what will happen next for me
What my future will bring

But it’s time to spread these wings

As i’m sitting patiently in my seat
I hear the pilot begin to talk
I think about everything that I left
And the strength it took to walk

I could have stayed back home
Where every one knew my name
But it’s time for me to move on
Where every night’s not the same

So now it’s time for me to do this
It’s time for me to spread these wings
Who know’s what will happen next for me
What my future will bring

But it’s time to spread these wings

That’s When I Woke Up

I found myself in a mansion
On the beach by the sea
I had everything i’ve ever wanted
I was content and happy

And that’s when
Thats when I woke up

What more can a man ask for
When he feels he had it all
Till you’re woken from a dream
By life’s sudden wake up call

And that’s when I woke up

I could be living in a castle
Like a king on his throne
Till the moment I’m woken up to
The only world i’ve ever known

And that’s when
That’s when I woke up

What more can a man ask for
When he feels he had it all
Till i’m woken from the dream
By the sudden wake up call

And that’s when
That’s when I woke up

I may not the king of the castle
I may not have a mansion by the sea
But I have everything i’ve ever wanted
I have everything I’ll ever need

And that’s when
That’s when I woke up

No Where Near Picture Perfect

As a kid you always looked up to
The only life you’ve ever known
Feeling like the luckiest kid in the world
Cause you have a house to call a home

Then one day that life was shattered
And the reality it all it hit me hard
When you walked right out of my life
Everything I knew was ripped apart

Cause when the two of you were fighting
Outside of my bedroom door
You knocked down the picture of us
And I picked it up off the the floor

Looking at you wearing that suit and tie
Trying to hide behind a picture perfect life
Do you honestly think you can hide
Behind all of those superficial lies

Cause you are, you are,you are
No where, no where, no where near
Picture Perfect

But since the day you left us
I’ve made a promise to myself
To never make someone feel the same
To never put them through hell

Cause I know how bad that feels
To have someone strip your life away
And I don’t want anyone I care about
To look at my picture and say

Looking at you wearing that suit and tie
Trying to hide behind a picture perfect life
Do you honestly think you can hide
Behind all of those superficial lies

Cause you are, you are,you are
No where, no where, no where near
Picture Perfect

Now my life may not be perfect
I know no one’s ever is
But I make the best with what I got
And there’s one thing i’ll never forget

About how i’ve got my own house
And a family to call my own
We all have our moments but
This house will always be a home

Cause you are, you are,you are
No where, no where, no where near
Picture Perfect

But I maybe, maybe, maybe
No where, no where, no where near
Picture Perfect

But we’re a home
And that’s perfect to me

 

Listen to Her

So many times when you’re just a kid
When you’re trying to figure out right or wrong
As you’re going through your younger days
Just trying to find a place where you belong

You might run home from a day at school
With a question deep inside on your mind
And your mom will sit down to talk with you
And answer the question you have inside

You’ve gotta listen to her
Cause what she says is true
And no one loves you better
No one wants the best for you
So just sit down and listen to her
Just sit on down and listen to everyword she says

Then when you get alittle older
But barely out your teens
You might meet the one for you
And you wonder what true love means

So you make your way back to your mother
Cause she always has your best at heart
So you sit back down to talk with her
Waiting for the knowledge she’ll impart

You’ve gotta listen to her
Cause what she says is true
And no one loves you better
No one wants the best for you
So just sit down and listen to her
Just sit down and listen to everword she says

Now years have gone by so fast
You’ve listened to every word she said
But life’s took a turn for the worst
And shes lying in some hospital bed

So many memories that you’ve made
Yet life has gotten way too real
But she leans in to tell you
About how she really feels

Now you’ve gotta listen to her
Cause what she says is true
And no one loves you better
No one wants the best for you

So just sit down and listen to
Every single word has to say
And appreciate every memory made
Leading where you are today
Just listen to her
Don’t stop listening to her
To every word she says
