Lyrics

Forever And A Day

Written By: Emanuel Januario

If you feel alive , come out and play
Quit your little lies , find your own way
When you're feeling lost , can't find your way
Look up at the stars , peace of mind remains

There is a shadow inside of you
Forever and a day

It's just a day away
It's just a day away
can you find a way to follow
It's just a day away
It's just a day away
Can you cease the day and follow

Shout and tell them all , you're here to stay
Prove that they're all wrong , no matter what they say
Never losing sight , your goal remains
Never you'll bow down , break up the chains

There is a shadow inside of you
Forever and a day

It's just a day away
It's just a day away
can you find a way to follow
It's just a day away
It's just a day away
Can you cease the day and follow

Just

Written By: Emanuel Januario

walking alone on these dead end streets
to find myself I'm incomplete
look at myself , it's so easy to see
my only friend is
my only friend is my enemy

I can't wait , to see you tomorrow
Nothing has changed , it's all the same
Hello pain , join the sorrow
Putting out , I'm giving in

walking alone on these dead end streets
to find myself I'm incomplete
look at myself , it's so easy to see
my only friend is
my only friend is my enemy

wanna win , try too hard now
quite frankly I don't care
so let's see , will this end softly
will it hurt ,will the silence be loud

walking alone on these dead end streets
to find myself I'm incomplete
look at myself , it's so easy to see
my only friend is
my only friend is my enemy

Life Starts Now

Written By: Emanuel Januario

it's the same old
little problem
it's the same old
song and dance you missed your chance
do not advance , hypnotic trance oh

just keep on saying
it'll never happen
yeah keep on saying
far too old for all this shit
I'll just relive my glory days but

Life starts right now
push on through the haze
oh don't back down
time for better days
when you're out of place
know you're not alone

when you're saying
it's not your problem
you're really saying
given up on all my dreams
just go ahead keep my head clean

Life starts right now
push on through the haze
oh don't back down
time for better days
when you're out of place
know you're not alone
