Lyrics

I Will Be Free

Written By: Matthew Salada

VERSE ONE:
What you want and what I’ve got to give
Have never been the same damn thing.
The time I’ve got and the life I’ve got to live
Leave me on the edge of insane.
And I want more, more, more, more.
I want more.
I want to feel it, the rush it gives me,
The power I feel when all there is
Left to hold me back from taking
The dreams that I’ve got left to live

CHORUS:
Is you know that I will be free
And there ain’t chains been meant for me.

VERSE TWO:
Ain’t no road I’m afraid to take
As long as there’s a breeze on me.
Ain’t no rules I’m afraid to break
The choice is either live or be
Inside your walls, no, no
Inside your walls.
But I know that I won’t be the man I’m made of
If’ I’m living a dream, but it ain’t mine.
Hold me loosely just like a shadow
Drifting like the changing tide.

CHORUS

Hold me loosely just like a shadow
Drifting like the changing tide.

CHORUS

I'm Unbreakable

Written By: Matthew Salada

I’M UNBREAKABLE

VERSE ONE:
I’d withstand a thousand white hot suns
Before I’d bow.
I would bear the heat before someone
Would drag me down.
I’d defy you, as you try to
Make me whither into dust.

CHORUS:
I’m unbreakable
And I fear no man, no more
I’m unbreakable
You can test my will.
I know that I will endure.

VERSE TWO:
I would face a thousand years of dark
And not forget
There’s a rising sun inside my heart
That never sets.
It renews me . . . surges through me.
As you tier, I grow strong.

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
It’s not in me
Just to lay down and die.
I’ve been wired to desire
To outlast the doubts that…

CHORUS (repeat)

Long Ride Down

Written By: Matthew Salada

LONG RIDE DOWN

VERSE ONE:
It started with my fingers
Runnin’ through her long blonde hair
It started with that look in her eyes
That made me want to stand and stare.
It started with a rumor
It started with a smile and a wink
It started with my hand on the small of your back
It started with a kiss on the cheek.
And then you started to whisper
Some things I cannot repeat
Words that said to come hither
The will is strong, but the flesh is weak.

CHORUS:
I touched the apple ‘cause it looked so good
And there was no one around
I thought your poison could be withstood
But in the end I fell
And took the long ride down.

VERSE TWO:
It started with the linger
Of perfume that you wore just to tease.
I smelled it when I walked in the room;
I smelled it when I started to leave.
It started with the music
It started off with one little drink
It started with a bet that you knew I would win
It never started innocently.
You had me marked from the moment
You saw me walk through the door.
You had my number; the spell you put me under
Was part of you preparing me for something more.

CHORUS
