Lyrics

Shy

Written By: Evert D.

This town has always been like this
No it’s not as funny as you might think
It can be cool but a little bit scary, not quiet so ordinary
And I’m sure that it shouldn’t be like this

It might take a long time – if I don’t take the risk
Or might be tonight – if I could loose the fear
But I’ve been so shy,
Guess I should tell you what I feel but it’s so hard to describe

Sometimes I wanna get away from here
But it’s not so simple it’s a little weird
It can be cool but a little bit scary, not quiet so ordinary
If I don’t speak out it’ll always be like this

It might take a long time – if I don’t take the risk
Or might be tonight – if I could loose the fear
But I’ve been so shy,
Guess I should tell you what I feel but it’s so hard to describe

Not So Bad

Written By: Evert D.

Well it seems that it’s not so bad
Although I think it’s gonna be too hard
Here money is not so trendy and people not so friendly
Is it the right Place? Is it the Time?

I realize that it’s not so bad
Cause there’s a chance that has just arrived
And no matter what they say, we will always find a way
Keep your head up and hold on tight

You can hear my voice, I will not go
I do not care if it gets a lot worse
If they wanna see me leave it all behind
Wait a thousand years; see if I ever do that
You can hear my voice, I will not go

And so far it hasn’t been so bad
Even when I’ve been really close to dying
Now we don’t have so many problems, though had some bitter moments
Something better always hides behind

I realize that is not so bad
A brand new day is about to start
I’ll get to live my fantasy; I just had to believe
This is the Place, this is the Time

Outside/Inside

Written By: Evert D.

When something happens, and we can’t decide
It’s disappointing that we have to lie
Who knows how long have we been feeling this
I just can’t remember the last time we smiled.

Woo Hoo… We don’t really know
Woo Hoo… They don’t even know
Woo Hoo… Think I don’t wanna know
Woo Hoo… so what do you know ?

We could not see it, so we could not hide
It got us thinking on how it all began
It’s been too long, and we still can feel it
We want some answers tell us where to start…. When you’re…

Outside, looking for something to help you…
Inside, fighting to get this one thing…
Outside, looking for something to help you…
Inside, trying to keep just one thing…

When something happens, and we can’t decide
It’s disappointing that we have to lie
Who knows how long have we been feeling this
I can’t remember the last time we smiled.

Let it Go

Written By: Evert D.

Once I got in trouble but I never got what I did wrong
It became so huge, everybody knew and I wanted to be alone
Why do you always gotta come to give me so much drama?
When you know in life not every little thing matters

Oh c’mon… Just let it go!
Let it go! - Why don’t you let it go (x 4)

Everyday you find a way so that I feel trapped in a corner
What should I have said or should I have done, was it me who was in control ?
Why do you have to leave me here thinking I’m the problem
When you can let it go, having fun is what really matters

Well, whatever; let it go – let it go
Well, whatever; let it go – let it go

Does it have to be so hard? Why can’t you even try?
Over little things you loose control
It’s not what you really want, what you really want
It’s simple… So what’s wrong?

Grab it

Written By: Evert Duran

- For someone is just another day
But for you it could be the day
When you’ll get it right
- Cause it’s been always so hard to face
Surrounded only by mistakes that make you feel alone…woooo
- And if it gets hard again
And you think there’s no one else
There’s no one……

* Grab the mic, say what you believe in
And you’ll see that you’re not the only one
Grab your head, look into the future
Don’t be afraid to fight for what you want

- So when you think you might have a chance
The only thing to do is push yourself
And you’ll get it right
- Cause even when it’s been hard to face
Surrounded only by mistakes
You’ve never been alone
- And if it gets hard again
And you think there’s no one else
There’s no one……

Hold On

Written By: Evert Duran

The first time it is just a story
The third time sounds like a warning
In my mind… it seems like it won’t be long

So we all wake up in the morning
Go outside but we never notice
There’s a sign in everything we touch
All we do is connected to the world

Oh oh woo oh oh oh (x2)
Oh oh woo oh oh Hold on World

It so sad, so low…
“Nothing’s wrong you don’t need to worry”
But everyday the earth is getting warmer
World, hold on

So we all wake up in the morning
Go outside but we never notice
There’s a sign in everything we touch
All we do is connected to the world
