For King & Country

“Run Wild”

You’re a lion full of power who forgot how to roar
You’re an eagle full of beauty but you can’t seem to soar
Will you return to the garden where we were first made whole
Will you turn to the one who can liberate your soul

Don’t you want to
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me
Run wild, live free
Love strong

To every soul locked in a cage
In the prison of your past mistakes
No, there’s no time left to waste
Yeah, you can make your great escape
We’re made to run wild, run wild, run wild
We’re made to run wild, run wild, run wild

For King & Country

“Burn The Ships

Step into a new day
We can rise up from the dust and walk away
We can dance upon our heartache, yeah
So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships
And don’t you look back

For King & Country


To the dreamers
Wide-eyed believers
Hanging onto hope by a thread

To the soulful
Heart open hopeful
Keep on charging ahead

‘Cause, when you feel it
Once you see it
And you breathe it
It’s unforgettable

When you know it
Once you know it
And you hold it
It’s unforgettable

When you feel it
Once you see it
And you breathe it
It’s unforgettable

When you know it
Once you know it
And you hold it
It’s unforgettable

I was wondering and I was wandering
So down and out, I was lost not found
History said, oh someone said, that you could never exist
But then a whisper, the start of a kiss

Came to me, all of a sudden like a dream, a fantasy
That day didn’t feel quite real

You took a half dead soul and You made me believe
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe

For King & Country

“Long Live”

Long live the young at heart
You know who you are
With your spirit burning
Take a risk and take a chance
Carry on

Long live the soul set free
Don’t be afraid to dream
While the world’s still turning
Every moment, make it happen
With two left feet
Keep on dancing

Five For Fighting

“100 Years

Fifteen, there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
Fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live

Harry Styles

“Sign Of The Times

Just stop your crying
It’s a sign of the time
Welcome to the final show
Hope you’re wearing your best clothes
You can’t bribe the door on your way to the sky
You look pretty good down here
But you ain’t really good


“Wake Me Up”

I hope I get the chance to travel the world
And I don’t have any plans
So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost


Somewhere Only We Know

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?
And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go?
Somewhere only we know?

The Calling

“Wherever You Will Go

So lately, been wondering
Who will be there to take my place
When I’m gone you’ll need love 
To light the shadows on your face
If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then between the sand and stone, could you make it on your own

Conrad Sewell

“Remind Me

When I think about love, you are right beside me
When I think about us, you will always find me
When my heart is lost, I know that you’ll guide me
I think about all the little things that still remind me

Florence And The Machine

“Too Much Is Never Enough

Oh, you wondrous creature
Coming up who we are
‘Cause I’m retreating in covers and closing the curtains

One thing’s for certain, oh
A year like this passes so strangely
Somewhere between sorrow and bliss

Florence And The Machine

Stand By Me

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No, I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid

Just as long as you stand, stand by me
If the sky that we look upon should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me


Long, Long Way From Home

It was a Monday
A day like any other day
I left a small town
For the apple in decay

It was my destiny
It’s what we needed to do
They were telling me
I’m telling you

Imagine Dragons

Walking The Wire

Do you feel the same when I’m away from you?
Do you know the line that I’d walk for you?
We could turn around, or we could give it up
But we’ll take what comes, take what comes

Oh, the storm is raging against us now
If you’re afraid of falling, then don’t look down
But we took the step, and we took the leap
And we’ll take what comes, take what comes

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Free Bird

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now
Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see

Lynyrd Skynyd

“Simple Man

Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold
All that you need is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied

Switchfoot Dare

“You To Move

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move, I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move, I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

Tom Cochrane

“Life Is A Highway

Through all these cities and all these towns
It’s in my blood and it’s all around
I love you know like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands

From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver’s lights
Knock me down get back up again
You’re in my blood I’m not a lonely man



Oh Mama, I’m in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
Lawman has put an end to my running, and I’m so far from my home
Oh Mama, I can hear you a-cryin’, you’re so scared and all alone,
Hangman is comin’ down from the gallow
And I don’t have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for a bounty
Nevermore to go astray
This’ll be the end today
Of the wanted man

Birds Of Toyko

Wild At Heart

I fought with many and I won for some
We stared at ourselves to our breaking point
We wear our bruises like watermarks
The life and the death of the wild at heart

I have no affiliation with any of the song writers, musicians, directors or any of the process. I am just an admirer of their awesome music and have no affiliation with them.
