Track Name: Dreams
Dreams keep me up at night
Dreams about the future, dreams that things will get better
And I know it's up to us, but you got better things to do
And I know you think it's too much, you don't know how we'll make it through
So many reasons to give up, fear of failing makes you choose
To run away when things get tough
But if you do nothing, you will lose.
I can't turn back now
We have come so far
And you think it's over now
But there's no end in sight
There's always struggle in life
It's not gonna change over night
You have to fight.
Track Name: Dark
Tearing down the road,
Dark and dusty lights shine the way in the night
Trying to get away,
I got the fear again, baring teeth on my skin
Stars show me I'm small,
Feeling small feeling fine, needing space needing time
On these dark days, cold days, long days, hard days,
Bad days but all days will end
Want to make sure all
My loved ones are safe, my friends are ok
If there's nothing I can do
I might lose my shit, I can't say I won't lose it
Watched you suffer so
I couldn't do anything, you wouldn't let me in the ring
On these dark days, cold days, long days, hard days,
Bad days but all days will end.
So hold me now, hold me tight
Give me a song I can sing when I need to fight
'cause I'm scared, no I won't lie
I got dreams, I got ghosts on my mind
And I got dark days, hard days, Sunrise to set days
Long days, and cold days, warm salty air days
Fine days, I got kind days, drive me outta my mind days
Lost days, I forgot days, Nights turn into days...
