about

Almost New Years Eve - We needed one last song so we wrote a song about respect.

lyrics

Every now and then I'd wake up with a fresh new start
seeing people as they are instead of works of art
the canvas may be stripped of paint
a dream strung out thin
but no imperfection masks the goodness from within
from within

Now I look into the mirror with a change of heart
seeing past the outer layer, every little part
I can see the freckles
patches of dry skin
but no imperfection masks the goodness from within
from within

I would like to fly
put the stars in someone else's sky
I would like to fly
put the stars in someone else's sky

I could meet a friend of mine halfway to the park
If you're sad and lonely a friend could be the start
we could tell good stories
Oh how we'd laugh and grin
and no imperfection masks the goodness from within
from within

I also have another friend, sweetest kid you'll meet
sometimes we can disagree but friendship can't be beat
people can be civil
respect is not a sin
no imperfection masks the goodness from within
from within

I would like to fly
put the stars in someone else's sky
I would like to fly
put the stars in someone else's sky
