Music/Lyrics by Ian and Chad

Believe in it
It’s more than you and so much more than me
Hold on to it
I’ll believe in you if you believe in me

I swear,
I’d give it all for this
I’ll fall onto my knees

We are the lucky ones

These years comin’
They’ll be worth the fight and they’ll be worth the wait
Keep on goin’
Let this be the star that’ll light your way

And I swear,
We’ll make it over this…
I’ll fall onto my knees

We are the lucky ones

I won’t let you down

We are the lucky ones


from This Is the New Year, released February 8, 2011
