Lyrics

Silver Water Streets

Written By: Emily Marriott

Silver water streets
I gaze at the rain
Flowing colors meet
They all look the same

(Oh oh)
Reflection, you look like
Deep, encompassing light
Sleep

Water washed away
The storms will subside
Tired, dreamy day
It's grey and it's white
It's day and it's night
The dark and the light

(Oh oh)
Reflection, you look like
Deep, encompassing light
Sleep

The rain is falling
Glimmer, glistening
Silver calling me
I am listening!

(Oh, oh)
Reflection, you look like
Deep, encompassing light
Sleep

Silver water streets.

My Confidence

Written By: Todd Marriott

(Verse 1)
A silent calling
Somebody's drawing me
But will I try to help them?
Free them from depression
And the dragon inside

(Chorus)
My confidence comes from the weight
Of the sword at my side
My mighty horse, he charges faster
Faster than lightning

(Verse 2)
Fear offers safety
A little place where I can't get hurt
Nothing unexpected
If I reject the mission and avert
My own thoughts betray me
Can someone save me?
I've forgotten why I'm here
Stop for a moment
Just long enought for them to disappear

(Chorus)
(Verse 1)
A silent calling
Somebody's drawing me
But will I try to help them?
Free them from depression
And the dragon inside

(Chorus)
My confidence comes from the weight
Of the sword at my side
My mighty horse, he charges faster
Faster than lightning

(Bridge)
I can see the stars that are out tonight
I'm riding into battle
Worthy or not, here I come!

(Chorus)
(Verse 1)
A silent calling
Somebody's drawing me
But will I try to help them?
Free them from depression
And the dragon inside

(Chorus)
My confidence comes from the weight
Of the sword at my side
My mighty horse, he charges faster
Faster than lightning!

Majestic

Written By: Emily Marriott

Majestic, you are a star
Fair as the moon, bright as the sun
You make me, you make me strong
You make me weak
You are perfection

I'll be loving you always
Till the end of time
I'll be loving you always
Till the end of time

Distracted by all the mess
I am a wreck, I can't be the captain
I need you! Awaken my glow,
Untangle my days
Cure my obsession

I'll be loving you always
Till the end of time
I'll be loving you always
Till the end of time

I keep running to you for dear life
The chase is wild!
You've stolen my heart a thousand times
Oh, oh, oh

I'll be loving you always
Till the end of time
I'll be loving you always
Till the end of time
I'll be loving you always
Till the end of time

Penguin Song

Written By: Emily Marriott (and Matthew Ison)

(Verse 1)
I see in black and white
You are like day and night
You’re everything that you should be

Your eyes are black as soot
Your beak matches your foot
You are so beautiful to me

(Pre-Chorus)
Let us dive into the icy
Water, Climb into your igloo cave
Let us slide along a snowy bank and
Dance around till we make waves

(Chorus:)
Oh Penguin, Penguin
We’re swimming, swimming
We stick together
You’re mine forever (forever…)

(Verse 2)
We play like penguins play
I see you everyday
It is so fun to be with you

Though we all looked the same
You remembered my name…
I knew that we were meant to be

(Pre Chorus)
Let us dive into the icy water
Climb into your igloo cave
Let us slide along a snowy bank and
Dance around till we make waves

Chorus:
Oh Penguin, Penguin
We’re swimming, swimming
We stick together
You’re mine forever (forever…)

(Bridge)
Snow falls down so white
Our penguin love’s so right
We’ll stay up every night
On ice, on ice, ON ICE!

(Chorus x 2)
