lyrics

Taste of Life

Verse 1:
Oh, isn't it a worn out city
Where tired sighs and petty lies and bitter vines grow
A people of broken memories
We turn aside, desensitized, smother the child inside

Pre-Chorus:
What's so golden about silence
Why should songs of hope be hidden

Chorus:
Come awake and feel alive again
The things that matter
Free the child inside to love again
The taste of life

Verse 2:
Acquainted with the ordinary  
A nine to five, don't recognize who you are anymore
Surrendered to the secondary
Yet on this earth, your life is worth more than you know

Pre-Chorus:
We all need a stress reliever
Be unashamed to share your flavor

Chorus:
Come awake and feel alive again
The things that matter
Free the child inside to love again
The taste of life

Wide awake
Bring to life again
The dreams that matter
