  • Tell you a story and it starts with time
    Moves to how you live and learn how to die
    Another phase in this world that brings deaths to life
    So don't believe in everything you see
    Because what you want might not be what you need
    Hold your breath jump with me and we'll survive
    'Cause you are the sun, that leads me to the light

    Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
    Alone is the street where you found me
    Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
    Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

    Tell me a story long and true
    We aren't what we say we are what we do
    Just pieces of a puzzle to find, where we stand
    Just confused so you are the moon, that pulls me through the night

    Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
    Alone is the street where you found me
    Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
    Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come
    Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

    Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
    Alone is the street where you found me
    Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
    Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

    So you are the sun that leads me
    You are the moon that pulls me
    You are the light that leads me
    You are the moon that pulls me Writer/s: DAVID RYAN HARRIS, PHILLIP LA DON JR. PHILLIPS
