Singing and dancing makes me happy all day,
It makes me happy in every single way,
Who says I can't be happy all the time,
If I was then would that be a crime,
I now know I could live alone,
Because my heart and soul has really grown,
I used to try and share my joy,
To every girl and boy,
I'll keep it to myself,
Even if I get left on the shelf,
Because nothing bothers me anymore,

Song Of Your Underground
This will be the song of your underground
A tune that will reach you six feet below
A tune that will reach you above and beyond
I hope you hear every note I sing
Your energy still gets the best of me
There are portraits of your face
Posted up on the timid walls of my mind
So I don't have to get over you
It's called death because it's the end
And there were moment...

What's that sound?
Is it a heartbeat?
A hummingbird singing?
It’s the sound of the crowd singing along with me.
It's so beautiful.
Like keys to a piano.
I can hear the crowd screaming “Hey, sing louder now,"
I have to show them what it’s like to be in love.
I have been living behind these four walls that I called my mind
Surrounded by uneasy thoughts and panick...

Back on the grand stage again
The place where I feel so comfortable
Well, where I used to feel so comfortable
Something doesn’t feel right
I don’t the feel the music anymore
The source of my happiness
It’s like the sun has burnt out
Like the moon has lost its glow
I want to sing but my voice keeps breaking
I want to play but my fingers keep shaking

The voices of heartbreak
they vibrate through the car
the voices of soul-ache
pour like water into this space
Next to that flawed, trembling voice
I lay my own
to that cracked and warbling voice
I add my own
to all those torch songs
The starkness of stripped, blunt words
fills the hollow part of all I see
the devastation of stri...

24 days before Christmas Day.
24 days of cold chilly nights.
24 days of laughter, joy, and spirit in the air.
24 days where people are a little bit nicer.
24 days of giving to those in need of help
and to those we love and care.
24 days of playing in the glistening snow.
24 days of Christmas songs sung.
24 days of preparing for celebration.
24 days of counting down
'till Christmas Day.
