THE DRIVE

Written By: Léon Coupal


THE DRIVE
Words and music: Léon Coupal

Oh yeah sure she said
Everything is possible
Adrenaline is rushing to your head
And you forget that we lost the battle
No matter what we try
We’re stuck here, we can’t go no further
Don’t force me to remind you why
We’re dead in the water

Oh it’s quite insane
No one get out of here alive
Regardless of the loss or the gain
Oh life is but a game
You play injured right through the drive
Got to get used to a little pain

He said, you’re missing the point
It wasn’t supposed to be easy
Every time you get to a checkpoint
You don’t always get a freebee
Sure you can sit down and wait
To be saved, to be older
Don’t you be afraid of the bait
It’s might be the best that life can offer

Oh it’s quite insane
No one get out of here alive
Regardless of the loss or the gain
Oh life is but a game
You play injured right through the drive
Got to get used to a little pain

I say, blame it on god or on the devil
But you sure don’t run the show
The only way to reach to the next level
Is to trust the little that you know
You may have come to a stop
But the earth keeps on turning
A new set of cards will be drop
In this solitary game of living

LET IT FALL

Written By: LÉON COUPAL


LET IT FALL
Words and music: Léon Coupal

If you let it fall
You will spring up again
Just drop it all
And you’ll rise up

You and I know
What you’re going through
I’m telling you
There’s nothing left to do
Just let it go
It’s time to embrace winter
As far as I know
The only road to summer

If you let it fall
You will spring up again
Just drop it all
And you’ll rise up

No it’s not fair
And you have got good reasons
To drown in despair
After all, this is the rainy season
But this too shall pass
So don’t feed the fever
The sun will be back
Sooner than later

If you let it fall
You will spring up again
Just drop it all
And you’ll rise up

For so many years
You’ve kept it afloat
But now it appears
To be a leaky boat
It’s time to learn to swim
No, it’s never too late
It always begin
With a leap of fate
