Track Name: Life Is Today
Here we are
Back to the place we never left
Here and now
Seems like a never ending mess
But I am free
Free of trying to be somebody else
And all this time I should have known
Life is today

Here we are
Facing the unpredictable
Growing up
Chasing the unattainable
Aiming high
Sometimes it feels impossible
But now's the time before it's gone

It happens now
Everything we will remember
You will believe
Every moment is a little miracle
It happens now
Everything we will remember
Cause life is today
And we should never stop at nothing
No we'll never stop at nothing

Feel the beat
Dancing and kicking through your chest?
Pushing through
Until it hurts, and then more
Catching up
With who you once thought you would become
But always true to who you come from

It happens now
Everything we will remember
You will believe
Every moment is a little miracle
It happens now
Everything we will remember
Cause life is today
And we should never stop at nothing
No we'll never stop at nothing

Now is the time
Before it’s gone
Life is today
Today
Track Name: When You Smile
I know what you mean
Every time you look at me, look at me
like that
You don’t say a word
And I hear you saying everything, everything
At one glance

When, oh when you smile
You light up that beautiful face
Oh when, oh when you smile
Suddenly my world is such a better place
When you smile

No it's not your job
But only you can cheer me up, cheer me up
again
And you don’t even try
All you do is you look at me, look at me
like that

The way you shine
Do it one more time
for me

Oo-oh
When, oh when you smile
You light up that beautiful face
Oh when, oh when you smile
Suddenly my world is such a better place
When you smile
Track Name: And Remember To Forget
You never slow it down
You never stop at all
And once you’re gone you’re never coming back
I know what you are
I know you’re a thief
Cause what you take you’re never giving back

Oh, my time
Were you ever mine?

When the world was black and white
Trapped in the frame of other lives
Ancient stories for new eyes
It could feel like something new
Filmed in slow-mo, as we dream
What could have been and always was
Always was

We, we could run away
We could say goodbye
To the memories that tie us down
Everything we are
And everything we'll be
Would awake anew like the first time

Oh, my life
Were you ever mine?

When the world was black and white
Trapped in the frame of other lives
Ancient stories for new eyes
It could feel like something new
Filmed in slow-mo, as we dream
What could have been and always…

I’m a prisoner like you
Cursed with an end that one day
I will meet to start again
And remember to forget
Blessed with a past I can miss
Filled of so many first times
First times
