Track Name: Don't Give Up
It's the day that you knew was on its way for some time
it's the fight that you knew you couldn't hide from any longer

so here we are with our backs against the wall
Here we are trying hard not to fall

It's the time you find out how strong you can be
don't hesitate its the day to change what you see

So here we are, staring out into the dark
here we are, we've never come this far

Chorus

Don't Give Up
throw away our fears and failures
push right past the present danger
Make the Jump
It's a battle, we must face
together we will meet our fate
All or none
We'll never know until we try it
I'm right here if you get tried
Don't give up
Don't give up

It's the day for fearlessness, the day that will decide the rest
it's the fight that we must win the battle for the lives we live

so here we are with our backs against the wall
Here we are trying hard not to fall

So here we are staring out into the dark
here we are and we've never come this far

Chorus

We could make a stand today
or we could just fall away
we could have faith and in love
Don't give up don't give up
Track Name: My Dear
Can I have your attention please
just a second of your time
noticed a few things about you love
still can't believe you're mine

the way you say my name
the way you make my day

CHORUS
I don't think you understand what you do to me
with every single smile and every breathe you breath
Theres no one else for me my dear
this is love, and this is why i'm here


Not that I tried real hard
but I can't find anything wrong
from the way you hold my hand
to the way you sing your favorite songs

I'm not gonna try and explain it to myself
gonna live in this moment with you and forget everything else

It's just the way you say my name
the way you make my day

CHORUS
I don't think you understand what you do to me
with every single smile and every breathe you breath
Theres no one else for me my dear
this is love, and this is why i'm here


your skin your smile your laugh they fill me they make me whole
1000 years right by your side, it'll never grow old

and when we're withered and gray
I turn to you and say
You still make my day
when you say my name


I'm here, so are you, what are we gonna do
I got some ideas, I'd like to run past you
Track Name: Hit the Road
Go on a trip

I think we've been stuck in this place too long
I think it's time we change it up
Not another day watching life roll by
Another day of that would be rough

So here we go
the great unknown

Maybe if we jump into the car
and push down on the gas and see how far
we can go before the sun goes down
then stare up at the stars without a sound
never miss a chance we are young right now
we won't regret a thing if we leave this town
get out on the road and find something new
i'm ready to go now baby how about you

I know people say that it's a small world
I like to say its bigger than we think
There's so much to find and so much to see
and we could miss it all, in a blink

Are you ready to explore are you ready for the world
are you ready to hit the road
Catch the next flight way out of here
and just see what our future holds

So here we go…the great unknown

Maybe if we catch the very next flight
fly to wherever let's see how high??
we can go before the sun goes down
stare out at the stars down on the ground
never miss a chance we are young right now
we won't regret a thing if we leave this town
get out on the road and find something new
i'm ready to go now baby how about you

And I know you think I'm dreaming
and you might think that I'm wrong
but if we are with each other
I know we'll stay strong
doesn't matter where we're going
doesn't matter where we've been
let's just find a place together
and live this life we're in
So here we go….the great unknown Chorus

I'm ready to go
How bout yooouuu x4
Track Name: Illuminate
Man I love to reminiss
bout the things I love and miss
theres times when I just stop and stare
thinking about way back when

I don't regret a thing
the hard times taught me who to be
most everyones been there
moments when couldn't look in the mirror

Here's a few things that i have learned

The good outweighs the bad
the happy is heavier than the sad
I'm more joyful than I'm mad
and nothing can change the fact that
youuuu….illuminate my life

The people on the street walk by
some say hello never goodbye
Theres times when I just stop and stare
heart stops beating lungs full of air

I don't regret a thing
The hard times taught me who to be
all we can do is pray
live our lives day ay ay by day
Duh duh duh dum x2

Chours
Track Name: Unplug
UNPLUG

how long can I stare at this screen
and wait for something to change
I've been sitting here far too long
I'm so sick of the same

thinking how my day just flows
right on by
thinking bout you baby
and will i see you tonight

Cause if I do
I'm telling you
we're gonna take it way back
trust me dear
we're outta here
we're gonna jump off the tracks

I'm thinking You and Me
we just sit down and unplug
We don't need
Anything but our love
How great it would be
if we just lay down and unplug
cause we don't need
anything but our love

I want hear your voice in my ear
while looking straight in your eyes
I don't want to read another text
or hear you on a telephone line

thinking we could drop it all
go find a sunrise
thinking bout you baby
and when I see you tonight

PRE

CHORUS
Lose the screens, drop the calls
slow it down, get away from it all
don't update, share with me
the two of us is all the social we need
Track Name: Good, Great, Grand
Vs1
I'm coming down the stairs
walking out the door
breathing in the air
it's never smelled so good before

I'm looking to the sky
taking in the sun
closing both my eyes
righting all my wrongs

CH
it's good to be free
and great to finally see
this grand life we lead
is as wonderful as we want it to be

Vs 2
I'm changing everything
starting over new
gonna be headstrong
and putting my trust in you

I'm not gonna break down
not gonna let go
this new love that i've found
has finally made me whole

CH
it's good to be free
and great to finally see
this grand life we lead
is as wonderful as we want it to be

BRDG--

It's like this weight has lifted off my chest
I turned around from east to west
my life that was a total mess
suffocating and depressed
every day seemed like a test,
What I've found I must confess
is a way to put my mind to rest
for the first time in my life I feel blessed
