THE LONGEST WAY – lyrics copyright Nick de la Hoyde

That heart that beat
that sound
That race
That rush
That crowd
Can you feel it all around you facing
Still chasing dreams so patient
cant have it
Being in my room writing lyrics all day for the world to approve it
Can you feel what im feeling
Feeling the pressure I make
When I think that fearing
Can't stop it
Can't hold it
Everything is going down like its Rowling
Rowling so fast
You never feel the pain when it's hitting in the back
Now it's gonna change
And I really wanna grab
And if it's in my way then I'll knock it all flat
Everybody sees what they want
But their too scared to get it
Like what will they say
if they regret it
Cause I hold on
To what I have done
I know I never bin much but I had some
Now I'm changing the ways that I feel
So put it all together I’m making it real

The wasted days have passed away
And I feel
Cause I'm bigger now
I've come the longest way
Ooo ooo ohhh


It's like it was a drug to me
The feelings that I get when I pump the beat
emotion that I feel
When I put the pen to paper
The real life moment I call a money maker
Words running through my head now I can't stop it
That journey that life is the only option
That way
That drug
That fusion
The one thing in the world that can do this
Now watch it all go past cause moments like this never seem to last
Can you Hold it all together with the passion
That side road reach for the big damn mansion
Now I'm part of a plan that I can't stop
That journey to the top without a pit stop
Cause I have it
And I won't loose
I can see just what I want
What I go through
Can I change up
Cause I want some
Young boy in a world full of moments
The’re stopping they don't bring me down
The person I am is the person I found
they never see all the things that your doing
Then who gives a fuck it is true that their loosing
So stop
Let it all go
Never let it get to the heart and the soul

The wasted days have passed away
And I feel
Cause I'm bigger now
I've come the longest way
Ooo ooo ohhh
