  • 04:11 Lyrics
    Today Is A New Day

     

    My dreams are strong and my heart is brave

    My woes are small and I am not afraid

     

    I close my eyes and see how it should be

    I close my eyes and feel how I want to feel

     

    I awake with a song in my heart

    So I sing and night falls apart

    Today is a new day today is a new day for everything

    Today is a new day today is a new day for everything

     

    My hands be long to all the notes they play

    My voice is strong, I'll choose the words I say

     

    I close my eyes and smile at all I am

    I close my eyes I love you again and again

     

    I awake with a song in my heart

    So I sing and night falls apart

    Today is a new day today is a new day for everything

    Today is a new day today is a new day for everything

     

    I awake with a song in my heart

    So I sing and night falls apart

    Today is a new day today is a new day for everything

    Today is a new day today is a new day for everything

    Run Away With You (2015 remix)

    I close my eyes, the plane goes down, a great love story is never found

    Lost at sea beneath secrets, in your arms is where I'll drown

     

    A secret vow made passionately

    between a killer and a thief

     

    As I run away with you, ah

     

    Take me under the desert sky, 10 hours builds a blissful high

    Hold my heart and ease my mind, take me into my life

     

    If I ever get close to who you are, I may never fight again

    If I ever get close to who you are, I may never fight again

     

    I will run away with you, ah

    Run away with you, ah

    All For You

    You put on a brave face and look out

    Even though your world is tumbling down

    I won't forget

     

    You lift me up, you lift me up

    it's all for you

    You lift me up, you lift me up

    it's all for you

     

    No matter how we change, to you it's always right

    No matter who walks out, you're always on my side

    I won't forget

     

    You lift me up, you lift me up

    it's all for you

    You lift me up, you lift me up

    it's all for you

     

    Oh it's all for you

    Oh it's all for you

    all for you

    it's all for you

    Music Everywhere (2015 remix)

    I long to hug you with my hands and hold you with my words

    Hang you in my eyes, walk you through my doors

    Pet you with my tongue, laugh inside your bones

    Reach into your dreams, drag you through my clothes

     

    And sing into your lips, tangled in my hair

    This is how I know you, with Music Everywhere

     

    Resting in alignment, jigsaw against your side

    Rock me in your arms, cradle in my thighs

     

    Broken bleeding silence, beads on glowing skin

    Fire lights the road, sirens sail you in

     

    Lost in all directions, these aching wounds we bare

    This is how you move me, with Music Everywhere

     

    Buried in your heart, locked into your chest

    Every perfect moment warm against my breasts

     

    Alive beneath our fingers, this harmony we share

    This is how I love you, with Music Everywhere

    with Music Everywhere

    with Music Everywhere

    Lies (2015 remix)

    You're amazing, you've got everything together, you're exciting and you taste like exactly what I want but you're a tease.You're no good for me but I'm addicted to the high, of listening to your every lie.

    You lie to me everyday, I believe you cause it feels good.
    You lie to me everyday, I believe you cause it feels good.
    And you have rules, that I can follow, I don't have feel, I don't have to swallow any uncomfortable situations.
    I want inspiration to lead me home, but when I'm with you I'm unwilling to turn off the road. 

    You lie to me everyday, I believe you cause it feels good.
    You lie to me everyday, I believe you cause it feels good.
    And you have sexy, beautiful people dancing around you, making me feel new,
    but they have nasty, dirty little friends that I never want to see hiding right behind them.
    When we're on top I'm untouchable, when I fall I am breakable.
    I line up the pieces like you taught me too, I don't heal cause there's nothing true.
    You lie to me everyday, I believe you cause it feels good.
    You lie to me everyday, I believe you cause it feels good.

    No Fear (2015 remix)

    Have you heard they just announced today
    that there's nothing left to worry about
    All your bills are paid
    All dreams are just around the corner

    They rang the bells you woke up to the sound
    you packed your bags and sat them on the ground

    You put hands into the air
    you take a breath your mind is clear

    There is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of anymore anymore
    There is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of anymore anymore anymore

    All the weight is lifted off your shoulders
    and the fears of the world
    everyone is off your back now
    and you're not taking anything personal

    Can you believe how light life can be
    Can you believe how light life can be

    And there is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of anymore anymore
    There is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of anymore anymore anymore

    You put your hands onto the ground
    accept the fact that you know nothing about anything

    There is always more
    than what you can see
    you are inside a limited being

    And there is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of anymore anymore
    There is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of
    there is nothing left to be afraid of anymore anymore anymore

    Put your hands onto the ground
    accept the fact that you know nothing about anything
