Let’s make it shine
The moment has finally come
We've waited so long
To put on our song
And sing it for everyone
Pushin’ play on the track
Never looking back
This is the life we’re given
This is our chance to live it
From the first beat to the big finish
This is the
This is the bright light moment
This is our stage, we’re on it
So good, feels so right
This is the life
Each day we wake up
and spin with sun to
to somewhere we haven't been
There's nothing but now
That won’t ever happen again
We’re pushin’ play on the track
Can’t get it back
Come fly your flag
Give it everything you have
Put your music in the movie
Name up in the credits
They wont forget it

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
