From his honorary performance at his high school graduation to his numerous shows, choirs and plays, Ian Maxion continued on his quest to grow as an individual within the music world.

Lyrics

Save Me (Just In Time)

Written By: A.Alvermark/F.Ådahl

VERSE 1
You know it's freezing cold
I'm shivering to the bones
Enough with the attitude
I'm blowing the cover

It's a little too much to bear
Don't know if you really care
Sick and tired of being
in this state of mind

PRECHORUS
Gonna be fine yeah
Gonna be loved yeah
Is it alright baby to cry

CHORUS
Save me just in time
I'm leaving out reason or rhime, and making wishes in a time of a break up
Live in fairytales, ain't it just what my mama said and
How can it be that I finally wake up

VERSE 2
Now you want me to analyze
Don´t you think that I've paid the price
But hey it's okay
I stand in the open

Love is a dream you say
A lot more than far away and
It´s gonna take some effort
and a whole lot of time

PRECHORUS
Gonna be fine dear
Out of my mind dear
Is it alright baby to cry

(CH)

BRIDGE
Back in 2003
you were the only one for me

(CH)
LAST CHORUS
Save me just in time
Enough with reason or rhime
making wishes in a time of a break up
Wishes never fail, ain't it just what my mama said
How can it be that I finally wake up

Try Imagining

Written By: Gregory Watton, Eddie J. Galan, Ryan P. Gentry, Kenny Smith

VERSE:
You and I will live our lives
As if on the silver screen
You and I will act together
Sail away past fantasies

And even if we wander
I know that we’ll get through
Time will stop
And Hold our memories too

PREHOOK:
Sometimes when things get tough
And you think that you’ve had enough
Don’t ever let it cross your mind
I want forever to be yours and mine

HOOK:
Try Imagining
If we lost this love forever
Try Imagining
I would go wherever
To bring you back to me

I’ll try Imagining
If the future wasn’t ours to face
Would you still find a way?
Try Imagining

VERSE TWO:
We will fly up into heaven
On stardust and golden wings
We will swim against forever
Take control of eternity

And even if we falter
Fight against all creation
Take a breath
It’s just your imagination

PREHOOK:
Sometimes when things get tough
And you think that you’ve had enough
Don’t ever let it cross your mind
I want forever to be yours and mine

HOOK

BRIDGE:
Live a dream
Or a fantasy
If you’re with me
Just try Imagining
Take me with you
High into the clouds
Solve a mystery
Just Try Imagining

HOOK
