Hi guys!! My new album, INNER SUPERHERO, is here!!
It is now available on every digital outlet worldwide (iTunes, amazon, etc)!

HELLO 
Let me come 
And show you how to 
Feel no pain when you’re bleeding 
In the night the wind is howling 
You go insane because you needed 
Someone there until sunrise 
I know that you can save my life if you just tried 
I scream hello.. 

Tell me, are you out there? 
Tell me, are you out there? 
Hello, hello.. 
I just need some sort of sign 
I need a little light to give me hope 
I scream hello... 

Let me come 
And show you how to lose your soul to all your demons 
I have seen the other side 
I know that you can save my life if you just tried 
I scream hello... 

Tell me, are you out there? 
Tell me, are you out there? 
Hello, hello.. 
I just need some sort of sign 
I need a little light to give me hope 
I scream hello... 

I believe 
I believe and I know I can save my life, if I just tried… 
Hello… 
RUN 
You, you screw me up 
mess with my mind 
it’s just my luck… 
Your magic worked 
I don’t know what to do 
I want your spell 
I want your spell 
I want your voodoo 
So I'll run run run 
And I won’t stop 
and I feel the burn 
but I'm catching up 
so I'll run run run 
til I cross the line 
I'll run run run 
til your love is mine 
You know our stars have been aligned 
So I'll run run run 
til I fall or til your love is mine 
You, you freak me out 
You wove the web 
I can’t live without 
You hypnotize 
I don’t know what to do 
I want your spell 
I want your spell 
I want what you do 
So I'll run run run 
And I won’t stop 
and I feel the burn 
but I'm catching up 
so I'll run run run 
til I cross the line 
I'll run run run 
til your love is mine 
You know our stars have been aligned 
So I'll run run run 
til I fall or til your love is mine 
You, you screw me up, you make me chase you… 
WIN 
Not gonna fight it 
I won’t deny it 
They’re gonna lick their wounds and like it 

I’m gonna taste it 
I’m gonna live it 
I’m gonna take more than they’re giving 

I’m gonna win tonight 
I’m gonna win this fight 
I won’t deny it 
I’ll win or die trying 
It has been written in the sky 
That I’m gonna win tonight 
I’ll win or die trying 
And I’m gonna win tonight 

I like it faster 
I like it harder 
They like it smart 
I like it smarter 

I’m gonna face it 
I’m gonna ace it 
Not gonna stop til I’m in space and 

I’m gonna win tonight 
I’m gonna win this fight 
I won’t deny it 
I’ll win or die trying 
It has been written in the sky 
That I’m gonna win tonight 
I’ll win or die trying 
And I’m gonna win tonight 

There’s no need to suffer 
Just know that I 

I’m gonna win tonight 
I’m gonna win this fight 
I won’t deny it 
I’ll win or die trying 
It has been written in the sky 
That I’m gonna win tonight 
I’ll win or die trying 
And I’m gonna win tonight 

SPEAK 
I want to scream at people who are mean to me 
But I’m too nice, too nice 
I’m a nice girl 

I’m the quiet type 
Never argue, never fight 
Always agree, afraid 
Afraid of controversy 
Afraid to hurt the feelings of people who don’t care 
Don’t care about me 
But now I’ve had enough 

I will speak up 
I will speak out 
And I will speak my mind 
Don’t care if they freak out 
I will speak out 
And I will speak my mind 

Not gonna worry what they think and I’m not sorry 
Got my voice and I will be heard 
I’m done with compromise 
Don’t ask me to be nice 
Too nice, too nice, cause I’m a nice girl 
Cause now I’ve had enough 

I will speak up 
I will speak out 
And I will speak my mind 
Don’t care if they freak out 
I will speak out 
And I will speak my mind 

And I will never apologize 
Never apologize for being myself 
I’ve had enough 

I will speak up 
I will speak out 
And I will speak my mind 
Don’t care if they freak out 
I am gonna speak out 
And I will speak my mind 
I will speak up, speak out, and I will speak my mind 
I will speak up, speak out 
And I will speak my mind 

FAIRYTALE OR NOT 
I feel like rain 
I’m empty yet overwhelmed 
I’m cold yet burning up 
I feel that I screwed up 
How can I make this whole again, whole again 

When I just don’t know where to start 
I don’t know what I’ve got 
I don’t know where I’m going 
Fairytale or not 
Not sure just who I see 
Who is really me 
Who I wanna be when I grow up 
Fairytale or not 

I feel awake 
I’m burning at the stake 
This dream it never ends 
Not sure where it begins 
What does it even mean to me, and what’s the cost 

Cause I just don’t know what I’ve lost 
I don’t know what I’ve got 
I don’t know where I’m going 
Fairytale or not 
Not sure just who I see 
Who is really me 
Who I wanna be when I grow up 
Fairytale or not 

Yes, I’m unsure 
But do we need to know? 
Is there a cure 
Or at least a placebo 

STAND 
Live or die with no regret 
You and I will make it yet 
Hold me, from the fire you pull me 
Lift me up and show me beauty to be found 
Hold me, promise you will hold me 
Even if the world comes crashing down 
When the world comes crashing down around us 
We’ll stand our ground 
On the edge of everything 
Dance upon piano string 

Hold me, from the fire you pull me 
Lift me up and show me beauty to be found 
Hold me, promise you will hold me 
Even if the world comes crashing down 
When the world comes crashing down around us 
We’ll stand our ground  
I will never break 
I will never fall 
As long as I see your eyes, I am whole  
Live or die with no regret 
  
LIGHT UP THE DARK 
Lost, I don’t know where 
Holding on to nothing 
There must be something there 

Hope, it goes nowhere 
Until I find a way and 

LIGHT UP THE DARK 
LIGHT UP THE DARK 
It’s funny what we don’t see until we 
LIGHT UP THE DARK 
A flame from a spark 
How beautiful life can be 
When we LIGHT UP THE DARK 

Love can lead me home 
A place where I am stronger 
A place where I belong now 

Peace, I’ll find my peace 
With a candle here I stand 
I know my life is in my hands 

LIGHT UP THE DARK 
LIGHT UP THE DARK 
It’s funny what we don’t see until we 
LIGHT UP THE DARK 
A flame from a spark 
How beautiful life can be 
When we LIGHT UP THE DARK 

Together we can shine a light 
Together we can shine a light 
Together we can shine a light 
Together we can shine a light 
  
ENJOY THE RIDE 
You follow me 
I follow you 
I wanna be wherever you go 
Through my mind and in my dreams 
I see it clearly now 
That I have found what’s hard to find 
I only need you here beside me 

Take me, take me 
Take me to the place I love the most 
Let’s run away together 
Let’s get lost 
I know that you’ll be by my side 
So let’s enjoy the ride 

You look at me 
I look at you 
And somehow I just know that 
You can read my mind and dream my dreams 
And I believe it now 
That I have found what’s hard to find 
I only need you here beside me 

Take me, take me 
Take me to the place I love the most 
Let’s run away together 
Let’s get lost 
I know that you’ll be by my side 
So let’s enjoy the ride 

You are my favorite place 

Take me, take me 
Take me to the place I love the most 
Let’s run away together 
Let’s get lost 
I know that you’ll be by my side 
So let’s enjoy the ride 

SAY HELLO 
Put down your phone 
Forget your email and your texts 
They’ll be there later 
There’s life outside these walls 

Take a vacation for a minute 
It’s okay to live a little 
You can have it all 

Say, say hello 
To the world 
To the sky above 
Feel the love 
Say, say hello 
To the sun 
It’s saying 
It’s time you had some fun 

So take a walk outside 
Reintroduce yourself to your surroundings 
And remember what it’s like 

Sometimes you gotta take a moment 
Take a break and smell the roses 
Go fly a kite 

Say, say hello 
To the world 
To the sky above 
Feel the love 
Say, say hello 
To the sun 
It’s saying 
It’s time you had some fun 

Don’t pay attention 
To the people that don’t get you 
Only you can set you free 
You’ve got the right to be 
What you decide 
You’ve already got all that you need 
  
GOING HOME 
Nothing feels right 
Nothing feels wrong 
But something is missing, missing 

I think of a place 
One that I know 
It calls and I'm listening... 

I'm going HOME 
taking off today 
HOME 
I'm on my way HOME 
cause I can't stay away, 
I'm going HOME 
where I belong 
HOME 
it's been too long 
HOME.... 
I'm going HOME 

I’ve wandered this world 
I’ve seen all its love 
I tell you, it’s beautiful 
It’s beautiful 

Wherever I am 
Wherever I go 
One place keeps calling 
It’s calling HOME 

БЕГУ 
Ты сводишь меня, cводишь с ума 
Моя беда 

В себя влюбил 
Что делать мне? 
И я хочу, Я так хочу 
Гореть в твоём огне 

И я бегу, бегу 
И не остановлюсь 
Уже вот вот вот 
До тебя коснусь 
Я бегу, бегу 
Пульсирует кровь 
Мне жизненно важна 
Твоя любовь 
У нас с тобой одна судьба 
Тебя догоню 
И ты влюбишься в меня 

Ты, ты меня скрутил 
Паутину сплёл 
В дремучий лес завёл 

Околдовал, Очаровал 
Ты из меня, из меня 
Чудовище создал 

И я бегу, бегу 
И не остановлюсь 
Уже вот вот 
До тебя коснусь 
Я бегу, бегу 
Пульсирует кровь 
Мне жизненно важна 
Твоя любовь 
У нас с тобой одна судьба 
Тебя догоню 
И ты влюбишься в меня 

И я гонюсь 
За твоей тенью...
