Lyrics

Like A Runaway

Written By: Sanny Veloo

Verse 1:
Check my heart dear friend
Can you hear the emptyness
There's a void inside
Can you figure it out?

Verse 2:
Everyone around
Doesn't seem to understand
There's a pulse in my veins
But it's draining me inside out

Chorus:
Like a runaway I'm leaving this all behind
I'm taking the chance I gotta be alive
Like a runaway I'm leaving this all behind
For the chance of a lifetime
Will you run with me tonight?

Verse 3:
Take your time dear friend
You can read into my mind
If you get lost inside
Well there ain't no guiding lights

Chorus:
Like a runaway I'm leaving this all behind
I'm taking the chance I gotta be alive
Like a runaway I'm leaving this all behind
For the chance of a lifetime
Will you run with me tonight?

I Won't Give Up

Written By: Sanny Veloo

Verse 1:
I've been holding on to the edges of my mind
It feels like I'm running outta time

Verse 2:
I've been hanging on to the dreams that keep my alive
But am I believing another lie?

Pre-Chorus 1:
Now that I had it with waiting around
So what if I got lost to be found?

Chorus:
I won't give up
I've been down inside the dumps (I can't get any lower now)
I'll be rising from this slump (I'm gonna take it higher now)
I don't care about your prediction
I'll decide my destination

Verse 3:
I'll be busting outta the prison that took my life
I'm gonna be crossing the borderlines

Pre-chorus 2:
You were the one that was weighing me down
I've had enough of your precious crown

Chorus:
I won't give up
I've been down inside the dumps (I can't get any lower now)
I'll be rising from this slump (I'm gonna take it higher now)
I don't care about your prediction
I'll decide my destination

Solo

Chorus:
I won't give up
I've been down inside the dumps (I can't get any lower now)
I'll be rising from this slump (I'm gonna take it higher now)
I don't care about your prediction
I'll decide my destination

YEAH!!!!
