Track Name: Everything is Right
"EVERYTHING IS RIGHT" by Karmin

You've been thinking, nothing happens by mistake
If doors are closing, doors will open in their place
Still you worry what the future's got in store
Now you're older, life is colder than before
So you say...

Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh - here we go
Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh - here we go

And I say...
Just stop, see the stars align
Slow down, take your time 'cause
Everything is right, everything is right
Just stop, let yourself be free
Slow down, can't you see that
Everything is right, everything is right

Take direction, there's no compass in the game
Point the needle, no two people live the same
Still you worry, don't you read between the lines
Just relax now, life is random by design
And you say...

Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh - there we go
Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh - there we go

CHORUS

Everything I need, is here inside of me
Be what it will be
Victory or fall, I embrace it all
Ending up on top
Track Name: Remembered
"REMEMBERED" by Karmin

Secret's out, we're the same
Holding out for the big fame
Loud and proud, unashamed
You only live once with your name
Lights will dance, just for me
All the people agree
I survive, on the top
And I'm not gonna stop

So I gotta leave something, so I gotta leave something

Something to leave behind, something that I define
I just wanna be seen and heard
Something to freeze in time, something that I call mine
I just wanna be remembered

Secret's out, we're the same
Holding out in the pride game
Over time, colors fade
Nothing but age will claim
Where we've been, where we were
When I'm 6 feet under
What will be my legacy
It's all that I got

So I gotta leave something, so I gotta leave something

CHORUS
Track Name: Carbon Copy
"CARBON COPY" by Karmin

I'll never paint the world if I use Da Vinci's brush
I'll never write like Dylan if I'm always in a rush
I'll never help the world by passing on the blame
I'll never help the world by keeping it the same

Chorus
I'm no one else but me
I can't pretend to be another carbon copy
I'm no one else but me
I can't pretend to be another carbon copy

I'll never play like Jordan 'cause my feet don't fit his shoes
I'll never write like Mozart because I only know the blues
I'll never know the world from a book up on the shelf
I'll never know the world if I never know myself

Chorus

Oh and I get my inspiration from the best
When I'm around you
Oh and I give it all I got and nothing less
It's true
Track Name: Gold
"GOLD" by Karmin

You live off your hopes and dreams
But only for now it seems you're outside alone
They're saying you lost your touch
They think you don't listen much, so you're on your own

Nobody wants you till you break the mold
Nobody loves you till you're made of gold
Nobody told you friends are bought and sold
Nobody loves you till you're made of gold

Your heart is the best advice
So don't let them fool you twice, you know you belong
You're breaking the wave ahead
But now they're behind instead and singing your song

CHORUS

So maybe you're golden, don't you agree?
Maybe you're golden, don't you agree?
Baby you're golden, don't you agree?
Track Name: Take It Away
"TAKE IT AWAY" by Karmin

Stupid simple mind games, pushing 'til I'm insane
Working through the day and night
Strutting with my headphones, no one knows what I know
Got no time to be polite
And the world says, "baby don't worry, baby don't worry at all"
Roller coaster seat belt, motion sickness soft shell
Maybe I'm just not cut out

But I can feel it, no one can steal it
They're gonna call my name
Not gonna stop now, not gonna step down
'Cause I can hear 'em say

Take it away, take it away, take it away, yeah! (2X)

Leading with my right hand, can't afford the name brand
Gotta give it all I got
Had a taste of lime light, sweet and sour just right
Now I can't escape the thought
And the world says, "baby don't worry, baby don't worry at all"
Praying running up hill, stage is my cathedral
Baby I can see the light

CHORUS

Bright flashes, full glasses
Now get up sing your song for the masses
Close both eyes, feel the sunrise
You thank God for the journey when you realize
Long nights mean nothing at all
Bright lights you can hear 'em call
Got my poster up on your wall?
We're in a storm now keep yourself calm
Stop - hit it - break - kill it
Anybody know the odds when I deal it?
Anybody get up the guts to play?
'Cause you only live once better live for the day
