Wake me up  
The morning sun is starting to rise 
No more second guessing about my way of life

Shining from a distance 
It sparkles and shines like a pearl  
I have so much to say now, I have to tell the world 

Chorus: 
I can see it 
I can see the sun glisten in my eyes 
Goodbye to pain, goodbye to gray skies 
I can feel it 
I can feel it coursing through my veins 
There's no time to waste 
Shine on sun, shine until tomorrow

Brand new day 
The morning sun is in the sky  
Time to speak my mind and take the world by surprise

My only means of strength 
My only remedy 
I will carve at my dreams 'til they're reality

I can see it

Goodbye to pain, goodbye to gray skies

I can see it 
I can see the sun glisten in my eyes 
Goodbye to pain, goodbye to gray skies

Shine on sun... 
Shine until... 
Tomorrow

V1: 
I know what you're thinking, I know what you're feeling too 
This world is kinda messy and no one wants to think things through 
There's no need to hide it, you're probably right 
In fact I feel it too 

V2: 
I can't understand this, all of the crazy things I've seen 
But I will go where you go, you understand the spaces in between 
There's no need to hide it, you're probably right 
In fact I feel it too 

Chorus: 
We will go through the storm together 
As we ride through this crazy weather 
We can't be in this place forever 
So we will go through the storm together, and live forever 

V3: 
I can't understand this, all of the crazy things I've seen 
But I will go where you go, you understand the spaces in between 
There's no need to hide it, you're probably right 
In fact I feel it too

We will go through the storm together 
As we ride through this crazy weather 
We can't be in this place forever 
So we will go through the storm together, and live forever 

Chorus 3: 
We will go through the storm together 
As we ride through this crazy weather 
We can't be in this place forever 
So we will go through the storm together 

Final Chorus: 
We will go through the storm together 
As we ride through this crazy weather 
We can't be in this place forever 
So we will go through the storm together, and live forever

V1: 
I never knew what love was 
My pains just pushed it all away 
But when I saw your eyes 
I had to figure it out someway 

Chorus: 
I'd give anything and change everything 
To show you I know what it means to love 
I'd turn back the hands of time 
Until I make you mine 
And show you I know what it means to love 
What it means to love (x3) 

V2: 
I think my heart's stopped working      
It's determined not to beat         
Except for those who will break it     
But I'll lay the pieces at your feet 

Chorus 2: 
I'd give anything and change everything 
To show you I know what it means to love 
I'd turn back the hands of time 
Until I make you mine 
And show you I know what it means to love 
What it means to love (x3) 

V3: 
And now I know my purpose in life 
As the sun begins to rise 
I need to know what love is 
Now let me look into your eyes 

Final Chorus: 
I'd give anything and change everything 
To show you I know what it means to love 
I'd turn back the hands of time 
Until I make you mine 
And show you I know what it means to love 
What it means to love (x3)

V1: 
Something takes over you 
Erupting from within 
You grip your chest and clench your fist 
To fight the chills again 
As you give in and let go 
It boils deep inside 
Your mind, body, and spirit's on fire 
It opens up your eyes 

Pre-chorus 
Rise again, the energy that fuels you  

Chorus: 
Born again 
And now the rush is here 
Moving faster than the speed of light 
It invigorates 
And it liberates 
The rush is here again  
Take me away... 

To boldly go where no goes 
That feeling just repeats 
You make the jump and stick the landing 
On your own two feet 
You're stronger than you'll ever know 
That feeling never dies 
Your mind, body, and spirit explodes 
It opens up your eyes 

Pre chorus 2 
Rise again, the energy that breaks through 

Chorus 2 
Born again 
And now the rush is here 
Moving faster than the speed of light 
It invigorates 
And it liberates 
The rush is here again  
Take me away... 

Bridge 
Is this what it's like  
What it's like 
I feel like I can touch the sky 
Is this what it means 
To be free 
I feel like I can never die 
Never die.....(x4) 

Chorus 3 
Born again 
And now the rush is here 
Moving faster than the speed of light 
It invigorates 
And it liberates 
The rush is here again  
Take me away... 

It invigorates 
And it liberates 
The rush is here again  
Take me away...

Chorus 
If I ever fall, I know you'll catch me and take me to your world 
I'm riding on your cloud and it's so warm and glows like a pearl 
I feel like there's a chance to mend this broken soul 
So if I ever fall, I know you'll catch me, I know you'll catch me and make me whole 

Chorus 
If I ever fall, I know you'll catch me and take me to your world 
I'm riding on your cloud and it's so warm and glows like a pearl 
I feel like there's a chance to mend this broken soul 
So if I ever fall, I know you'll catch me, I know you'll catch me and make me whole

 

October Sky Lyrics (2018, 2019)

Little Stirrup Cay Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

Take me back to Little Stirrup Cay 
Where all of my dreams can be made 
Take me back to Little Stirrup Cay 
Where all of life's worries float away 
They float away 

As I walk in the sands by the ocean 
My eyes, they grew ever wide 
At the sea, my royal blue majesty 
I felt so strong, so alive 
               
Take me back to Little Stirrup Cay 
Where all of my dreams can be made 
Take me back to Little Stirrup Cay 
Where all of life's worries float away 
They float away 

As I drove down these roads, they were broken and cracked 
But I saw what I couldn't see back home 
I lived with the sea and the sea lived with me 
But that was so long ago 

Take me back to Little Stirrup Cay 
Where all of my dreams can be made 
Take me back to Little Stirrup Cay 
Where all of life's worries float away 
They float away 

Don't take me from the ocean 
And all it's heavenly blue 
Don't take me away from the ocean 
Cause the only thing I want to do 
Is to sit beside you 

Take me back to Little Stirrup Cay 
Where all of my dreams can be made 
Take me back to Little Stirrup Cay 
Where all of life's worries float away 
They float away 

They float away...

 

Universal Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

 

It's a universal love 
That keeps me connected to you 
No matter where you are 
It's a universal love 
That keeps me connected to you 
No matter how far you are 

Over again, we'll fly 
To the clouds up high 
Through the cosmos, through space and time 
It's just us two, just me and you... 

It's a universal love 
That keeps me connected to you 
No matter what you do 
In a distant galaxy 
Or lost on the biggest star 
It'll always be me and you 

Over again, we'll fly 
To the clouds up high 
Through the cosmos, through space and time 
It's just us two, just me and you... 

The trees, they carry me 
Carry me through the breeze 
And the clouds up there, so high 
Coming down to see me 
The world is at our feet, we're unbreakable 
This love I can't define is universal 
This love I can't define is universal 

It's a universal love 
That keeps me connected to you 
No matter where you are 
It's a universal love 
That keeps me connected to you 
No matter where you are..

 

Crescent Moon Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

I'm not from here but that's alright, you see 
Leave this booth and take a trip with me 
Graphs and charts, push them all aside 
They can't explain how you feel inside... 
         
Mark this day as your greatest day 
This is when you start to live today 
You don't belong behind these shirts and beads 
Ride with me through the LA breeze 
     
I won't push you into this 
But don't you wish for eternal bliss 
     
All I ask is for the love you want 
Stripped of walking before it learns to run 
Don't you wanna see where we'll go next 
To find the life and the love that fit you best? 
             
Should I hold you now 
Sometime soon 
That's all I ask under the crescent moon... 
         
No time to waste, there's so much more to do 
Past the palm trees and the ocean view 
Take my hand and bid this place adieu 
Our time is now, the moonlight's shining through 

Maybe I'm selfish to follow this light 
So take my hand and make this right 
     
All I ask is for the love you want 
Stripped of walking before it learns to run 
Don't you wanna see where we'll go next 
To find the life and the love that fit you best? 
Fit you best... 
     
Take a chance with me 
Just take my hand and break free... 
Break free, yeah 
     
All I ask is for the love you want 
Stripped of walking before it learns to run 
Don't you wanna see where we'll go next 
To find the life and the love that fit you best? 
             
Should I hold you now 
Sometime soon 
That's all I ask under the crescent moon... 

Should I hold you now 
Sometime soon 
That's all I ask under the crescent moon...

 

Open Up To Me Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

Let's sit and talk for a while 
I've got an empty chair to share 
Your eyes try to paint a picture 
But the paint splatters everywhere 
            
Say a word if you can hear me 
I know your walls are closing in 
Maybe we can fix the canvas 
That you've broken time and time again 
 
Open up to me 
Straighten the lines that bend 
Leave those hurtful people 
Please come back my friend 
Let go of their words 
To keep their venom from you 
Listen for my voice 
It's calling you... 
  
Open up to me 
No need to draw a line 
You don't have to feel this way 
Don't be scared this time 
 
I got a smile out of you 
But I know that I can't make it stay 
What we did just wasn't enough 
We've gotta find another way 
               
Don't you worry about the time 
It's not the boss of you or me 
Paint the picture that's overdue 
Show me the smiles buried deep in you 

It's ok to cry 
Let those tears fill your eyes 
Give me a sign, give me a clue 
I know we'll make it through, make it through... 
     
Open up to me 
Straighten the lines that bend 
Leave those hurtful people 
Please come back my friend 
Let go of their words 
To keep their venom from you 
Listen for my voice 
It's calling you... 

Open up to me 
No need to draw a line 
You don't have to feel this way 
Don't be scared this time 

Open up to me...

 

Skylights Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

The daylight shows me structures of glass and steel 
With giant names, bland colors, and nothing to feel 
At daytime it's clear to see 
The city feeds on busy feet 
I await the time when the night rears her head 
         
Daytime people moving at the speed of sound 
Tourists, loud cars, shopping malls all around 
But hours and hours go by 
Until the clouds separate in the sky 
And the lights are here and they're taking over me 
     
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights 
They glisten over me 
The skylights are looking down at me 
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights 
They glisten over me 
The skylights are hovering over me 
         
The buildings' lights shine brighter than stars from space 
And giant billboards' lights glare with style and grace 
From a distance or far away 
You can tell when they come out to play 
The skylights in the city of the world 
     
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights 
They glisten over me 
The skylights are looking down at me 
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights 
They glisten over me 
The skylights are hovering over me 

It's the nighttime that I'm destined to see 
The lights shine bright red, blue, and green 
And when the night falls they call out to me 
At nighttime is where I'm supposed to be 

Supposed to be 
Supposed to be 

The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights 
They glisten over me 
The skylights are looking down at me 
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights 
They glisten over me 

The skylights are hovering over me 
The skylights are hovering over me 
The skylights are hovering over me.

 

Meet Again Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

Listen to the sound of my voice 
Listen to my beating heart 
Follow the footsteps behind 
And you'll find me even when it's dark 

It's only a matter of time until we finally meet again (x2) 

Listen to the sound of my voice 
Listen to my aching heart 
Follow the crumbs left behind 
And you'll find me right back to the start 

It's only a matter of time until we finally meet again (x2) 

It's only a matter of time 
Until you stumble upon 
What you had to leave behind 
It's only a matter of time 
Until you find me here 
And we 
Can finally live the life we've dreamed 

It's only a matter of time until we finally meet again (x4) 
Meet again  

Until we meet again (x4)

 

Memories Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

Once in a million, I find familiar places 
They set off memories, memories of beautiful faces 
               
Even if the sky is falling down, don't forget those memories 

Caught in the moment, emotions rising and falling 
Over and over, memories forever binding 

Even if the world is tumbling down, don't forget those memories 
Even if the sky is falling down 
Oh no, please don't 
Forget those memories 

Those memories... 
Those memories... 

Even if the world is tumbling down, don't forget those memories 
Even if the sky is falling down, don't forget those memories 
Even if the sky is falling down 
Oh no, please don't 
Forget those memories

 

Wooden House Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

Time doesn't discriminate 
Soon I'll lose it's game 
But somehow as it goes on 
The turnout is always the same 

The mornings run sour and the evenings bitter 
Names of my vices on my wall 
And every time I make amends, settle things 
Life brings the pain back in full 

But I must carry on 
To take back the world that I lost 
I'm reaching for my old state of mind 
My wooden house at the foot of the hill 

I need to take my memories like a newborn 
Squeeze them and hold them tight 
They're just so warm at heart 
In brightest days and darkest nights 

I need my windmill and my wide open space 
The greenest grass and the bluest sky 
Come on, dear body and mind 
Help me spread my wings and fly...high 

I must carry on 
To take back the world that I lost 
I'm reaching for my old state of mind 
My wooden house at the foot of the hill 

Now I must carry on 
To take back the world that I lost 
I'm reaching for my old state of mind 
My wooden house at the foot of the hill

 

Tomorrow Lyrics

Chords: coming soon

I can't wait until tomorrow 
Don't wanna think about yesterday 
I can't wait 'til the sun rises tomorrow 
Something good's coming my way 

All the things that make me sad, made me feel less of who I am 
Will finally be put to rest 
All the things that make me sad and push me under the sun 
Will finally be put to sleep 
               
I can't wait until tomorrow 
Don't wanna think about yesterday 
I can't wait 'til the sun rises tomorrow 
Something good's coming my way 

All the things that make me sad, made me feel less of who I am 
Will finally be put to rest 
All the things that make me sad and push me under the sun 
Will finally be put to sleep 

I can't wait until tomorrow 
Don't wanna think about yesterday 
I can't wait 'til the sun rises tomorrow 
Something good's coming my way 

(music interlude) 

All the things that make me sad and push me under the sun 
Will finally be put to sleep 

I can't wait until tomorrow 
Don't wanna think about yesterday 
I can't wait 'til the sun rises tomorrow 
Something good's coming my way 

Something good's coming my way

 

A Better Day Lyrics (2019 Edition; Piano Version)

Chords: coming soon

Even though my time is running out 
I still believe we can achieve 
Even though my time here is very slim 
I still believe in her and I still believe in him 

And they will march to a better day 
They will march until there's no other way 
They will march to a better day 
They will march unto 
A better day 

Even though the road is very long 
I have no doubt we're still going strong 
Please don't let your fear control you 
Don't give up on me cause I still believe in you 

And you will march to a better day 
You will march until there's no other way 
You will march to a better day 
You will march unto 
A better day 

(Guitar Solo, 8 bars) 

And we will march to a better day 
We will march until there's no other way 
We will march to a better day 
We will march unto 
A better day......oooooh..... 

(Guitar Solo, 4 bars) 

We will march to a better day 
We will march unto 
A better day 

A better day
