Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Painting pictures with my mind
Making memories using my eyes
Filling up my heart with golden stories
Who adds some spice to the rhythm of life
Oooh, oooh

Welcome sunrise with the morning glory
I've changed my mind
There is no simple
I thought of me
I want to see
I wanna feel my heartbeat so
With the world that you're feeling

I can feel the pressure pushing onto my heart
And it's teasing me
To scratch my itch and to beat my drum
So I can start to begin what's begun

Painting pictures
Filling up my heart with golden stories

Painting pictures
Filling up my heart with golden stories

Running riots inside my soul
Fire burning and it's lighting me up
To scratch my itch and to beat my drum
So I can finish what I have begun

Painting pictures
Filling up my heart with golden stories

Painting pictures
Filling up my heart with golden stories
