Track Name: Sorry Mamma
I'm fighting the law
I’m committing a crime
I'm stealing your money
‘Cause I don't have a dime

I'm lying to your face
And I’m running away
Don't try to track my trace
‘Cause you'll never find me

I just wanna be on my own
Stick for my self and not be controlled
Live on the edge, be careless and bold
I've always been too nice; it's time to let go

Sorry mamma I know this wasn't your plan
But you should know that I'm not your little lamb
Sorry mamma but I just wanna jam
And I'm sorry to say that I don't give a damn

I'm sure in this world
There are more people like me
Poor mama's children
Who just wanna be free

So parents! let them go
And they'll find their way
‘Cause if they don't wanna stay
They sure will escape

We just wanna be on our own
Stick for our selves and not be controlled
Live on the edge, be careless and bold
We've always been too nice, but it's time to let go

Sorry mamma I know this wasn't your plan
But you should know that I'm not your little lamb
Sorry mamma but I just wanna jam
And I'm sorry to say that I don't give a damn
Track Name: Serenity
They always told me what to think
They always told me how to feel
They tried to set my voice aside
I never had a chance to decide

They always showed me how to walk
How to sit, so I’d fit in
Whenever I would climb too high
They made sure to bring me down

They always taught me what was right
They said that it was wrong to fight
They never asked about my dreams
They just made sure that I had fears

But this is not me
I don’t wanna be
A product of
Their fucked up society
I’m breaking free
Taking charge
Over my destiny
‘Cause I found my serenity

They would call me insolent
But all I am is different
They would call this act belligerent
But that is just my preference

And I know I’ll fall on my ass
At least ten times until I rise
When I finally do, I’ll touch the skies
But I’ll still remember the smell of grass

I will hold the crown of my own throne
I’ll be in charge of my every bone
And if I break it will be in style
And you’ll know did it with a smile

Because this is now me
And I aim to be
A product of
Of my own beliefs
I broke free
And I took charge
Of my destiny
And I found my serenity
Track Name: Expiration Date
Why am I always on the wrong side of the stage?
In the audience, across the scene, feeling trapped like in a cage
Give me the spotlight, and I will shine
The colors in my life, I need to redesign

But no one gets their dreams on a silver plate
With all the ups and downs, just move on straight
Nothing comes with a snap of your fingers
Nothing falls from the skies, so keep your eyes on the prize

As my papa said, listen to me now
This is what my papa said,
I know that he was right

Dreams don’t have an expiration date
Cause if they do they were never true
So my child - don’t lose faith
It’s never too late

To be who you were meant to be

Gotta step out of your comfort zone
Gotta throw yourself into unknown
Everything you do will be worthwhile
Think of this as your wishes on trial

He said prepare your self
Prepare to fall down
And every time you do
Just wear a bigger smile

As my papa said, listen to me now
This is what my papa said,
I know that he was right

Dreams don’t have an expiration date
Cause if they do they were never true
So my child - don’t lose faith
It’s never too late

To be who you were meant to be
Track Name: Brave
Song Brave from the EP "SERENITY"


LYRICS

I know this is not what you signed up for
I know this is not what you wanted before
I know your face, I know your smile
I know you’ve been faking it for a while

I know your life turned upside down
Everyday you pass through a new town
And every time you drive into the sunset
I know you’re wondering is it over yet?

The path we choose is what defines us
All the wrong turns we take is what builds us
And if you feel like you’re lost, like you’re going astray
Never doubt your instincts, they will lead you the right way

You refused to be the slave of monotony
You said the hell with all and their uniformity
You chose to be brave, to pave your own way
You chose to live your life properly

I know you’re rethinking all the choices you made
I know you’re wondering what if you have stayed
And you feel sometimes like you made a mistake
And all you wanna do is just take freaking a break

As long as you do what you heart feels like
Everything will fall in its place
But don’t expect life to be dreamlike
‘Cause it is just a long obstacle race

The paths we choose is what defines us
All the wrong turns we take is what builds us
And if you feel like you’re lost, like you’re going astray
Never doubt your feelings, they will lead you the right way

You refused to be the slave of monotony
You said the hell with all and their uniformity
You chose to be brave, to pave your own way
You chose to live your life properly
