Liner Notes:

Lyrics: 

The Journey
Coolparadiso

V1 Id rather light a candle
than curse the darkness
Id rather lie in the sun
And enjoy the winter starkness

V2 Id rather dance in the rain
Than wait for the sunshine
Id rather love and lose
Than just while away my time

C Life is just one long journey
You have to find a away
To make it back to the start
Each and every day

V3 I wont row out further
Than i can row safely back
Ill focus on what i can do
Not the things i lack

V4 ride this rollercoaster
Of all my fears and hopes
Sometimes climbing mountains
Sometimes down the slopes

C Life is just one long journey
You have to find a away
To make it back to the start
Each and every day

B Enjoy enjoy enjoy
With each step advance
Remember that so many
Never get this chance

C Life is just one long journey
You have to find a away
To make it back to the start
Each and every day



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Loved the lyric and wow! This is exactly the right touch. Super collab you two!

Wise lyrics full of life lessons, and a cadence to them just made for music. And the music lives up to the words for sure - lovely combo of synth piano/vocal. I can imagine this as a powerful live performance piece.

This is gorgeous. Great, picturesque lyrics and super vocal for the track. Love the lift in the chorus. Really sets it off. And that bridge. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. What a great thought. So positive and awesome.

Really positive and uplifting message in the lyric and the wonderful way Marthie’s vocals soar bring it to beautiful life. I love the musical treatment as well. Great bridge.
