lyrics

A warm day, the birds are singing
and swimming through the air.
It's a tonic to chase away the worry
when you can't find beauty anywhere.

But this same wonderful world on the brightest days
can bring us joys tonight.
It's just up to us to find it. So let's go find it.
Let's create it as we'd like.

It's a common misconception
that the world's gonna help you along.
Beautiful as it all may be
it's indifferent to our songs.

So as hardships arise don't look outside.
Remind yourself it's yours.
You can generate your own happiness.
You can sketch up what you adore.

So follow me outside, love,
into these warm summer nights.
Let's get lost in all the world can offer us.
Let's take the ride.

Deep breath; in and out.
Sometimes that's all you can do.
Stay sharp and focused. They all may not notice,
but it's worth all the work you do.

Watch the sunset every chance you get.
Because when you feel like you're falling apart
the dusk can remind you without the darkness
the dawn would never start.

So follow me outside, love,
into these warm summer nights.
Let's get lost in all the world can offer us.
Let's take the ride.

So follow me outside, love,
into these warm summer nights.
Let's get lost in all the world can offer us.
Let's take the ride.
