Lyrics To Our Songs

LYRICS TO OUR SONGS…

Over and Over: Words and music by Aria Schottelkotte

I know a girl who lives in Paris, said don’t know what I’m about
She let the cat out of the bag and now her secret’s out
She lived a double life with champagne nights and crystal days
And I can never just forget the time she swept me away
So stick it to today
_________________________________________________________
All I wanna do is hold you close to me tonight
Driving through downtown so fast that we turn into light
Like a song that won’t stop playing on the radio
We just keep starting over and over
We just keep starting over and over
_________________________________________________________
She caught me fireflies and kept them in my memories
Sweet cherry kisses and a voice that dances in my dreams
Showed me the constellations I had never seen before
And held our little ship afloat until we found the shore
_________________________________________________________
All I wanna do is hold you close to me tonight
Driving through downtown so fast that we turn into light
Like a song that won’t stop playing on the radio
We just keep starting over and over
We just keep starting over and over
_________________________________________________________
We were made of stuff
That they write songs about
The ones that make you dance on tables till you scream and shout
So take my hand
All i need is your kiss
Thought i was living but who knew that life could be like this
_________________________________________________________
All I wanna do is hold you close to me tonight
Driving through downtown so fast that we turn into light
Like a song that won’t stop playing on the radio
We just keep starting over and over
_________________________________________________________
All I wanna do is hold you close to me tonight
Driving through downtown so fast that we turn into light
Like a song that won’t stop playing on the radio
We just keep starting over and over
We just keep starting over and over

Neverland: Words and music by Aria Schottelkotte
It’s time for me to close the book now
Story’s over, it’s the end
No more crying no more wishing
That i could just live in pretend
I’ve made mistakes and done some damage
I’ve led some longer better lives
But this chapter now is ending
Because the words I read don’t lie
_________________________________________________________
So send my regards to peter pan
Tell him i will not be home in time for supper anymore
I thought the real world was holding me down
But sometimes it’s dreams that keep you on the ground
And won’t let you soar
I’m waking up for the first time in a while
Cause sometimes you have to learn to live without a smile
When i pass that second star i don’t know what my life has planned
But it’s time to say goodbye to neverland
_________________________________________________________
And you can take all your reasons
You can take all your words
I don’t think you ever knew how much they really hurt
But that was your mistake because my ashes have turned
You played with fire
Now you’re gonna get burned
_________________________________________________________
So send my regards to peter pan
Tell him i will not be home in time for supper anymore
I thought the real world was holding me down
But sometimes it’s dreams that keep you on the ground
And won’t let you soar
I’m waking up for the first time in a while
Cause sometimes you have to learn to live without a smile
But it’s time to say goodbye to neverland
_________________________________________________________
And maybe i’ll be a little bit colder
Isn’t that what happens when you get older
Theriver chill runs deep into your bones
the one you thought hung the stars in the sky
But everyone who tried to clip my wings is gonna find
That they’re left on the ground
Oh
_________________________________________________________
So won’t you go please tell peter pan
That it’s been good few years but there’s no time to play anymore
I thought the real world was holding me down
But sometimes you don’t know that you can’t breathe until you drown
And don’t know what for
I’m waking up for the first time in a while
Cause sometimes you have to learn to live without a smile
When i pass that second star i don’t know what my life has planned
But it’s time to say goodbye to neverland
Carnival Ride: Words and music by Aria and Bryce Schottelkotte

Up like a roller coaster spinning ‘round the track,
Dive bombing, stomach churning, never looking back.
Life’s that way for everybody, plus, including me.
So hold on tight, smile and you’ll see.
_________________________________________________________

‘Cause it goes up and down, twists all around,
loop de looping upside down.
Put it all together, life is a carnival ride,
life is a carnival ride…(wa oh wa oh oh oh oh oh)
life is a carnival ride…(wa oh wa oh oh oh oh oh)
_________________________________________________________

Looking up, all around, as far as the eye can see,
at times in life you feel as tall as a California Redwood tree.
But there will be people in life who will make you feel so small,
but hold my hand, let me pick you up, and see it’s not so bad at all.
_________________________________________________________

‘Cause it goes up and down, twists all around,
loop de looping upside down.
Put it all together, life is a carnival ride,
life is a carnival ride…(wa oh wa oh oh oh oh oh)
life is a carnival ride…(wa oh wa oh oh oh oh oh)
_________________________________________________________

But there will be times, when you can’t pick, yourself back up again.
But all you gotta do is see the bright side and see the light of a friend.
_________________________________________________________

‘Cause it goes up and down, twists all around,
loop de looping upside down.
Put it all together, life is a carnival ride,
‘Cause it goes up and down, twists all around,
loop de looping upside down.
Put it all together, life is a carnival ride,
life is a carnival ride…(wa oh wa oh oh oh oh oh)
life is a carnival ride…(wa oh wa oh oh oh oh oh)
_________________________________________________________

‘Cause it goes up and down, twists all around,
loop de looping upside down.
Put it all together, life is a carnival ride,
life is a carnival ride…(wa oh wa oh oh oh oh oh)
life is a carnival ride…(wa oh wa oh oh oh oh oh)
life is a carnival ride

GetUP: Words and music by Aria Schottelkotte

It’s a phrase you hear all over the world,
“Dude you can’t throw a ball, you play like a girl,”
Well I take that as a compliment, because it shouldn’t be said with ill intent.
_________________________________________________________
Girls are special we’re all one of a kind,
we’re beautiful and strong, we got a brilliant mind.
So don’t apologize for being who you are,
You’re an incredible gift and you shine like a star.
_________________________________________________________

So get up! Get up! Do what you gotta do,
cause the world’s never gonna wait for you to get going,
and start knowing,
that nothing ever starts ‘till you take action
and if you slip up find a whole new traction and know:
That life is a journey, but it doesn’t start,
Till you get up and play…your part.
_________________________________________________________
Now dresses are fine and so are nice shoes,
but that shouldn’t dictate everything you do.
You don’t have to be a damsel-in-distress,
you’re a take-charge go-getter kind of princess.
_________________________________________________________
When you grow up be whatever you want,
don’t listen to the haters and their stupid taunts.
Be a scientist, a sports star, anything goes.
You don’t have to be defined by your fancy clothes.
_________________________________________________________
So get up! Get up! Do what you gotta do,
cause the world’s never gonna wait for you to get going,
and start knowing,
that nothing ever starts ‘till you take action,
and if you slip up find a whole new traction and know:
That life is a journey, but it doesn’t start,
Till you get up and play…your part.
_________________________________________________________

“Don’t wait for your superhero,
there are so much stronger people.
Think of all the independent girls who went ahead and changed the world cause,
you can make your mark if you try.
Be a person people wanna stand by.
Work hard for your dreams and they’ll come true,
Look out world ‘cause here comes you.”

_________________________________________________________

So get up! Get up! Do what you gotta do,
cause the world’s never gonna wait for you to get going,
and start knowing,
that nothing ever starts ‘till you take action
and if you slip up find a whole new traction and know:
That life is a journey, but it doesn’t start,
Till you get up and play…your part.
_________________________________________________________
Get up, Get up
Get up, Get Up
Yeah, your part
Play your part

Hardships: Words and music by Aria and Bryce Schottelkotte
Life’s a broken road with ruts along the way,
but after every darkest night,
comes brand new day.
_________________________________________________________
It breaks me up, tears me down.
Every hardship makes me stronger,
now I know I will last longer.
In the storm I will not conform.
Soon enough it will be over.
You won’t see me kneeling over now.
_________________________________________________________
In life there are ups and downs with many new surprises,
maybe the dream you have comes true.
But everyone will have to deal with the world’s hard strifes.
But that’s just life, but that’s just life.
_________________________________________________________
It breaks me up, tears me down.
Every hardship makes me stronger,
now I know I will last longer.
In the storm I will not conform.
Soon enough it will be over.
You won’t see me kneeling over now.
_________________________________________________________
The skies may darken,
the world may lose its glow.
But after every hurricane,
comes a bright rainbow.
_________________________________________________________
It breaks me up, tears me down.
Every hardship makes me stronger,
now I know I will last longer.
In the storm I will not conform.
Soon enough it will be over.
You won’t see me kneeling over now.
_________________________________________________________
You won’t see me kneeling over now.

Reaching For Tomorrow: Words and music by Aria and Bryce Schottelkotte
You keep on hiding your face in the shadows, keep on hiding yourself in fear,
the cage you’ve built has hid you away and you can’t break out and make yourself clear.
So pick the lock with the key inside of you,
open the door and burst your way through,
because it’s time for your light to come out and shine.
_________________________________________________________
Move along, be strong, it won’t last long,
don’t wait around for the directions on how to live your life.
As we build the ladder one by one and climb the stars to touch the sun,
and breakthrough all the walls of pain and sorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow.
_________________________________________________________
You don’t need a GPS, cause you’re your own compass,
if you’re lost you don’t need a map to save you,
courage is the way to get through
this is not the path for the faint of heart—but you’ve got your start.
_________________________________________________________
Move along, be strong, it won’t last long,
don’t wait around for the directions on how to live your life.
As we build the ladder one by one and climb the stars to touch the sun,
and breakthrough all the walls of pain and sorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow.
_________________________________________________________
Do-do’s…
_________________________________________________________
Move along, be strong, it won’t last long,
don’t wait around for the directions on how to live your life.
As we build the ladder one by one and climb the stars to touch the sun,
and breakthrough all the walls of pain and sorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow,
keep reaching for tomorrow.

Music In Your Soul: Words and music by Aria Schottelkotte
We’ve got to the song, song, song, song in our souls
whether it be pop, jazz, independent or rock and roll. Oh oh oh
_________________________________________________________
When it comes to what I love, there’s no way to be discreet,
raise up the white flag I surrender to the beat,
and everybody knows I march to the tune of my own drum
just gotta dance, just gotta feel it from the 3 to 2 to 1.
_________________________________________________________
We’ve got the song, song, song, song in our souls
whether it be pop, jazz, independent or rock and roll
you just gotta sing out loud cause you don’t need a stage don’t need a crowd,
go ahead and lose control, just keep the music in your soul,
keep the music in your soul.
_________________________________________________________
Now everybody plays to their own song and beat and style,
but saying that one is the best just ain’t worth while,
so you go and do you and I’ll go and do me,
because together we make perfect harmony.
_________________________________________________________
We’ve got the song, song, song, song in our souls
whether it be pop, jazz, independent or rock and roll,

Stardust and Sound: Words and music by Aria Schottelkotte
We’re all a little bit unhinged,
and this world we live in is unfair.
But as long as there’s a you and I,
then I don’t really care.
_________________________________________________________
We built this town from dust to dust,
A shining city in the sand,
and I would share it all with you
cause we’re the ones who understand.
_________________________________________________________
The night time is our friend
no secrets, no pretend
we will carry-on.
_________________________________________________________
Because stars are made of broken dreams
and this world is full of stranger things,
so I’ll dance with you until the moon goes down.
_________________________________________________________
And our home is in the beckoning twilight,
so hold my hand and we can rule this night.
I don’t need a velvet throne or a crown:
all I need’s the stardust and sound, whoa, whoa, whoa
all I need’s the stardust and sound, whoa, whoa, whoa
All I need’s the stardust and sound.
_________________________________________________________
We’ve got no souls we’ve got no hearts
we lost them long ago.
pick up the pieces start a fire,
so the whole world can watch it glow.
_________________________________________________________
The melody is our friend,
no secrets no pretend,
we will move on.
_________________________________________________________
Because stars are made of broken dreams
and this world is full of stranger things,
so I’ll dance with you until the moon goes down.
_________________________________________________________
And our home is in the beckoning twilight,
just hold my hand and we can rule this night.
I don’t need a velvet throne or a crown:
all I need’s the stardust and sound, whoa, whoa, whoa
all I need’s the stardust and sound, whoa, whoa, whoa
All I need’s stardust and sound.
_________________________________________________________
Our minds are not our own,
or just as strong as our weakest own,
make up a story to hide the truth,
until that story lives in you.
_________________________________________________________
Because stars are made of broken dreams
and this world is full of stranger things,
so I’ll dance with you until the moon goes down.
_________________________________________________________
And our home is in the beckoning twilight,
just hold my hand and we can rule this night.
I don’t need a velvet throne or a crown:
all I need’s the stardust and sound, whoa, whoa, whoa
all I need’s the stardust and sound, whoa, whoa, whoa
All I need’s the stardust and sound.

We Are The Now: Words and music by Aria Schottelkotte
They think that we’re the source of every problem,
they think that we don’t know a thing at all.
We’re always deemed the ones to blame,
but we should let things stay the same
but we’re never gonna answer when they call.
_________________________________________________________
They’ve made the world a melting pot of issues,
that are supposed to get fixed on their own.
But that’s just not the way things are,
we’re gonna have to raise the bar
because we all know that our futures aren’t set in stone.
_________________________________________________________
We are the freedom,
we are the passion,
we are the fire deep inside.
We’ve got a magic
no one can take from us
won’t run away and hide.
Cause we’re the only ones running to the beat of our sound,
and we’re never gonna stop til we shake this town,
cause we are, oh we are, yeah we are—we are the now.
We are the now
_________________________________________________________
Turn up the call to arms and call to action.
The world is ripe and ready for rebirth.
The second renaissance is here,
and we’ve got nothing else to fear,
now it’s time for a new age upon the earth.
_________________________________________________________
We are the freedom,
we are the passion,
we are the fire deep inside.
We’ve got a magic
no one can take from us
won’t run away and hide.
Cause we’re the only ones running to the beat of our sound,
and we’re never gonna stop til we shake this town,
cause we are, oh we are, yeah we are—we are the now.
_________________________________________________________
They lock us up,
they push us down,
they burn our city to the ground.
They break our spirits crush our hearts,
and leave us crying in the dark.
But they don’t know
what they’ve unleashed
we won’t be another pastiche.
With fight or flight one thing we know:
when they say stop we’ll always go.
_________________________________________________________
We are the freedom,
we are the passion,
we are the fire deep inside.
We’ve got a magic
no one can take from us
won’t run away and hide.
Cause we’re the only ones running to the beat of our sound,
and we’re never gonna stop til we shake this town,
cause we are, oh we are, yeah we are—we are the now.
_________________________________________________________
We are the now.
We are the now.

Who Do You Think You Are: Words and music by Aria Schottelkotte
You’re the rapid hush of voices when I walk into a room,
and everyone goes silent cause they know they’ve been talking too,
gossip spreads like wildfire and I know just who to blame,
but one day you will hang your head in shame.
_________________________________________________________
You’re the sound of mocking laughter as it echoes down the halls,
and every time you laugh at me through all my trips and falls,
we all make mistakes sometimes so why single out me,
is it because I’m who you’d rather be?
_________________________________________________________
Who do you think you are that you have the right to say those things and keep me up all night you’re trying to take the easy way,
building your self up bit by bit day-to-day.
Hey hey, who do you think I am that I would hear what you say and not take a stand,
so you can move along cause you’re just plain wrong,
who do you think you are?
Yeah, who do you think you are?
_________________________________________________________
As I look at all the seats filled-up my mind fills up with doubt,
cause everyone’s in on your plan and I’m the one who’s out,
I’ve got no one to turn to and I’m in the Lion’s den,
I haven’t got a prayer, a clue, a friend.
_________________________________________________________
Who do you think you are that you have the right to say those things and keep me up all night you’re trying to take the easy way,
building your self up bit by bit day-to-day.
Hey hey, who do you think I am that I would hear what you say and not take a stand,
so you can move along cause you’re just plain wrong,
who do you think you are?
Yeah, who do you think you are?
_________________________________________________________
Who do you think you are that you keep treating me this way?
Who do you think you are that I am your punching bag day to day?
Who do you think you are that you keep trying to blow out my light,
and I wonder how do you sleep at night?
_________________________________________________________
Who do you think you are that you have the right to say those things and keep me up all night you’re trying to take the easy way,
building your self up bit by bit day-to-day.
Hey hey, who do you think I am that I would hear what you say and not take a stand,
so you can move along cause you’re just plain wrong,
who do you think you are?
Yeah, who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are? Yeah
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
