Track Name: Be True
Look at you, all full of fire. Live fast die young, you are inspired by the legends of the past. Trying hard to make the good times last...
You don't have to fade away, you can burn bright every day for the rest of your life give it all don't give up before your time. In every one you meet, see the one in whom you seek. In everything you do, to thine own self be true.
Its a lie to say "better to burn out than fade away" life is beautiful, come on show me your soul. Stay awhile, share your dreams as we walk the miles. I'll be there for you, we'll make them all come true...
You don't have to fade away...
Track Name: River
Theres a river flowin Lord deep inside my soul. Theres a river flowin Lord callin me back home and I know I cant get there, get there alone.
Every day, every day seems the same. Nothing but heartache, livin with this pain. The hardest part? Knowin Im to blame. Been down so long Lord think I'll lose my mind. In this mad mad place, peace sho' is hard to find. One thing Im askin, please treat me kind. Cause theres a river flowin'
Track Name: One
take a look around you we're all going through the same pains with different names, different hearts.
Unbelievable as it seems we all dream the same dreams and the fears and tears play their part.
We want to change the world but what will it cost? What can you teach us now before all is lost?
Just what are we waiting for? Theres an open door give love its not tough to save the day.
Its up to each of us to make the difference we can make a plan take that step.
