lyrics

Your heart is pounding and your hands are shaking,
Muscles are weary and your bones are aching,
The rush you feen for is what makes you thrive,
'Cause this is when you feel the most alive,

You breathe in, as you take in the sounds,
As sweat stings your eyes, taste the blood in your mouth you,
Ignore the pain 'cause you've made up your mind
to give into the sickness this one more time,

(Chorus)

I will never be one who is scared to grow old,
Become like the jaded so hollow so cold,
So go about living the life that you now lead,

But if I can run, If I can still climb,
Harvest the wind or the waves to get through this grind,
Then i'll dive headlong into all that waits for me,
To lives to bleed,


I'd hate to lead a life that's full of nevers,
I say that living wild and free is better,
Some choose to give in to the fear inside,
When push comes to shove they just cower
and hide,

Well that's one way to play it but I'd rather not,
I was prefer to dig deep give this all that I've got,
So i'll, shatter the molds, keep leaping the lines,
'Cause it's not where you end up it's all bout the ride,

(Chorus)

I will never be one who is scared to grow old,
Become like the jaded so hollow so cold,
So go about living the life that you now lead,

But if I can run, If I can still climb,
Harvest the wind or the waves to get through this grind,
Then i'll dive headlong into all that waits for me,
To lives to bleed,

(Repeat)

about

Mykal Morrison West Palm Beach, Florida

Mykal Morrison is an artist based out of West Palm Beach, Florida. His sound is a pleasant departure from the effect laden, overly processed music that floods the airwaves. His first effort is the full length album titled "Elemental". A collection of songs that are remnant of a better time in music. A time when you could get an album, just push play, and let it ride. ... more
