Lyrics

Tonight I'm on fire

Written By: Kings Highway

Should I undermine the bridges I've burned
Signs that I turned into life, I'm on fire
But I had to fight, the darkest of nights
Brightest of sights and tonight, I'm on fire

Now I know that I can do anything..
I'm on fire
Tonight, see the light
I'm on fire

Should I fall in line
Put my head down and fold
Just do what I'm told, not tonight
I'm on fire

Now I know that I can do anything..
I'm on fire
Tonight, see the light
I'm on fire

There is a life

Written By: Kings Highway

Like the thousand eyes that are on me, turn away to hid the light
Exploding from inside
From day one I knew that I would never regret a minute spent with the one
Who was driving my mind
Thoughts of you came by the minute, only to surface as a grin
It kept me up all night

The tide came in a little high today, making things looks dark and grey
The water’s washed away my sand
The moon is rising high, high above me. Why can’t you learn to love me
She cried as she reached out for my hand
The wind used to make my way, now I’m feeling so differently
I’m treading waves and heading for land

You’re gonna get your time in the sun
Only a fool would stay in the shade
Making no effort to change is a great way to stay the same

The daytime gets the best of me, I need the night so I can see
The road that I’m supposed to take, decisions that I have to make
Believe in better times to come, is this battle ever won?
I’m intrigued by the rising sun, now I’m ready. NOW I’M READY

You’re gonna get your time in the sun
Only a fool would stay in the shade
Making no effort to change is a great way to stay the same
Well somewhere out there, There is a life
A time that I belong to. A place that I am going to find
A place to sing my song to

Wide awake

Written By: Kings Highway

“Goodnight,” she said. “Life’s not all that I thought it would be”
“Well, love” she said. “It’s not all that I thought it would feel”
The night is young, I’m on the run.
I aint crashing tonight til I see the sun
Burn on the beach on a whiskey night
Waste it away til the morning light

..Wide Awake..

Tonight I’m through with this hesitation
Waiting around worked for no one yet
Eyes wide open, anticipation
Love in this night turned into day, blown away

..Wide Awake..

Inhibition, I’m saying goodbye
Tonight I’m all in, come on
Just let it ride

..Wide Awake..
