Track Name: Rhythm of Life (feat. Charly Hustle)
Just like the seasons, they come and go
You've got four reasons to grip control
So much chaos around, I know
The kings of fear can take their toll
There's no way to see down the road
The best we have is what we hold
All we can do is live and love
We've got now, and for now that's enough

Dance to the rhythm of life
Everybody has a song inside
Let your heart beat tonight
Get your feet moving to the rhythm of life
Get your feet moving...

You've been searching high and low
For somebody to call your own
Maybe tonight is for letting go
Find your groove...the rest will surely follow
Just lose yourself...maybe you'll find yourself
Track Name: Wanderer
She's a beauty queen
Not a man who hasn't seen her steal the scene
She wears a billboard saying "look at me"
She always gets what she wants
She likes to play the game
One or two or ten boys try to catch her name
Her shoulder's cold but that's the way she came
She's become a professional

I don't think she knows what she wants
I don't think she wants what she has
I think she is lost 'cause she's a wanderer
I don't think she knows who she is
I don't think she is what she thinks
I think she is lost 'cause she's a wanderer

She's so popular
Her little entourage wants to be her
They're all so young and she seems so sure
She's such a natural
She wears a mask
She wears it well...she works behind a glass
A sense of power in that look she casts
She's so good, she's so good, she's so good, she's so good

(My little) Wanderer...
Come on and wander my way...
Track Name: Not A Day
Any day without you is not a day
'Cause I'll be thinking about you all the way
When you left the night began its stay
Any day without you is not a day

Any life without you is not a life
'Cause I'll be missing that spark you had inside
Now that you're gone, all I can do is try, try, try
'Cause any life without you is not a life


You moved and I moved
You breathed and I breathed
Your heart and my heart...they shared the same beat
I felt what you felt
I saw what you dreamed
You went away and I lost the better part of me

I don't think I'll ever get over this
I don't think that I ever want to
Because if I ever get over this
I think I would have to forget about you
Track Name: Ignition
Everybody needs a dream
Once you see it, let your sweat be gasoline


All around the world, people looking for the fire
Everybody wants to be living in a flame
You don't have to look any further than your heart
It's right there...it's inside, flowing through your veins

All around the world, people burning with desire
Everybody's looking for a chance to live the dream
All too often it's just waited on, not worked for
So strike a match and let your sweat be gasoline

Let it burn...this is Ignition
Just let it burn like you just can't live without it
Let it burn...come on, feed your ambition
Just let it burn 'til you do something about it

All around the world, people living, others dying
I'd rather die before my time than never live
Sometimes to die is to be alive after all
But while I'm breathing, I've got something I can give

All around the world, people writing out their stories
Even in war, they can still find peace
We all have chains that keep us from our freedom
But shackled hands hold the keys to our release

All it takes is just one match
But your words ain't gonna light it
There's gotta be more than that
It takes passion to ignite it
Now's the time to act
Don't let it slip away
Start with where you're at...
Track Name: Hit and Run
Honestly, I'll never be free from this
The very first time our souls collided
Possibly the best and the worst night
The first time in a long time that I decided...

I could love again...and love could be a friend
And the dream I held could be coming out of exile
I remember when it was coming to an end
You left me with nothing but a smile

Eyes...hold more than a word could ever say
I...was struck, then you went another way
A hit and run

Honestly, I tried to forget the feeling
After all, I'm not sure what it meant
Possibly, I'm as crazy as it would seem
But all I know is somehow you left a dent

I saw you again...chilling with your friends
Acting like I was just another guy
My soul was on the fence...still full of consequence
Then you turned and looked me in the eyes

I can't read what's in your mind, girl
Come on, tell me how you feel
You're talking with your eyes girl
What's the truth that you're trying to conceal

You tell me you're a friend, and that is the extent
We can't be more, and I should let it go
I'm trying to pretend it didn't leave another dent
I've come to learn not to let it show
Track Name: You
I am looking for you
And I don't even know who you are
But at the same time, I think I do
You're the better half of this broken heart
And I am waiting for you
When will you show me your lovely face
It's been a long time since I've been in love
Beside me there's far too often an empty space

I've been thinking of you
Wondering where you are right now
What are the things that you like
What makes you happy when you're feeling down
I've been writing songs for you
I can hardly wait to sing to you, girl
Once I've finally found you
I'll have everything I need in this world

I'm looking for you, and I don't even know who you are
Track Name: A While
You belong to another...
You make your love to a brother...

I feel that burden
I see a tired shoulder
It's carried too much
My heart says "Hold her"
But every time I do
You leave me again
And every time you do
It feels like the end

You belong to another
But I'm the one who can make you smile
You make your love to a brother
But you can be sure I'ma be here a while

You won't forget me now
'Cause there is something you found
Try your best to put it down
But you'll see me around

I can feel that you're afraid
Words can be so cheap
They were blue in the face
It was only skin deep
I broke a hole in the wall
You can see my eyes through
If you could see through my eyes
You might find your truth

I'll be in your dreams...I'll be in your thoughts
In the pages that you read...our souls are in a knot
You're gonna feel my love, even from afar
Just can't escape what's written in the stars


You know I want to be more than what we are
I feel I hold a key to a vault inside your heart
So let me hold you, while the moments fly away
Just like I told you...everything's gonna be okay
I wanna hear...I wanna learn the depths of you
Through all the fear...maybe we'll find the truth
Been thinking about the seeds...we can't just let them die
Can we set them free...can we be "you and I"
Track Name: Done With That
I'm done with that...

I felt like paper, written on
Problem was, it was not by me
Let everybody paint what they want
Never stopped to be what I be
I was plastic, the mask was on
Cast an image that they could see
Felt love, but there was something wrong
It wasn't real...it wasn't me

I'm done with that...
Be myself and let everyone else
I'm done with that...
Leaving behind what was holding my mind
I'm done with that...
I've had enough, now I'm flying above
I'm done with that...
Past is goodbye...today I'm alive

I've been singing for all of my life
But most of the time it was not my song
Somebody else wrote the lyrics, I
Sang in style and followed along
I was riding the train last night
Thought it would take me where I belong
I never once saw the tunnel light
So I got off and dug ‘til dawn...

If anybody tells me I have to fit the mould (I'm done with that)
I wasn't born just to be the typical (I'm done with that)
I've spent enough of life searching for approval (I'm done with that)
Life is too short to waste putting on a show (I'm so done with that)
Track Name: Closer

A moment in time with a beautiful soul
Nobody knows what tomorrow will hold
A moment to fly with a beautiful soul
I think I know how far we could go

Keep on moving, moving, moving out on the floor
Come a little closer, closer, closer...I'll keep you warm

Closer...let that beat inside
Closer...let our worlds collide

Closer...let's be free tonight


I wanna be your baby...you're so fine
I wanna see those eyes looking into mine
I wanna feel your body moving to the beat now
I wanna steal you away...we're making heat now
Track Name: Be Okay
I've made some mistakes in my life
But I know...you were never one of those
Always hated seeing tears in your eyes
But I know...sometimes that's how it goes
I used to lay awake at night
But I know...the best is what we chose
We filled some pages with what we knew to write
But I know...that chapter's been closed

I want you to be okay
I want to see you fly
I want to see you loved by the perfect guy
I want you to be okay
I want to see you run
I want to see you smile...dancing in the sun

I've made some mistakes in my life
But I know...you were never one of those
Track Name: The Ascension (feat. RationaL)
This leather on my face has seen better days
But it's been through much worse than this weathered place
These feeble knees are scraped, but blood warms the grey
Every drop of my life has painted the way
These mountains speak my name like foes turned friends
They look diminished as this path brings me here again
My sweat and tears were rain to desolate ground
My heels feel at home, for here I've been found

I have come so far
I ain't giving up now
I have my share of scars
I am not going down, no

I'm moving higher...
Keep moving higher
