Track Name: I Don't Have a Reason
it's so good to see you
tell me how you've been
why are we still living in the same mundane routine?

i'm still getting by
still living day to day
who cares about the future? it turns to the past and fades away

i better be going
hope to see you soon
i can only take so much til there is nothing i can do

i'm still gonna love you until the day i die
i don't have a reason, i don't need a reason why

i can see a light
i know it's not the sun
still i'm moving towards it though i feel i should run

the opposite direction
as far as can be
but everywhere i look light is still shining down on me

sometimes it gets heavy
it's all i can feel
i gotta remember none of this is real

i'm still gonna love you until the day i die
i don't have a reason, i don't need a reason why
