ALWAYS SEARCHING

Resultado de imagen de FUEL FANDANGO




There's something, there's something there

I'm always searching, but I don't know where
There's nothing, there's nothing here
I'm looking for solutions to forget all my fears

La clave, está dentro de ti,
el impulso, que te lleva a sentir,
la llave que abre 
tu alma. 

Always searching.
