about

Scarlet Sails New York, New York

Scarlet Sails is a statement. SS is based on believing. SS is about love.
It's about a girl who decided not to wait for her boat and her dreams to sail to her but to build that boat herself and make her dreams come true by sailing it. It's about taking your life in your hands. It's about being brave. It's about being honest. It's about knowing what you want, going for it, and rocking it. ... more

Track Name: Wonder Why
Is there a reason
To why you decide to
Ignore all the stories
You've heard in your lifetime

Blindfolded isn't broken
Your piece of mind is spoken
But your heart's not open
You keep yourself shut

Wonder why
These are the tears you cried
These are the years gone by
Wonder why
All those fears arise
If you refuse to fight

Face all the reasons
Don't underestimate
The power inside you
That sets you aside

Through all the seasons
You keep your color on
You don't wanna hide it
Just give it a shot

Wonder why
These are the tears you cried
These are the years gone by
Wonder why
All those fears arise
If you refuse to fight

In the middle of New York City
Where all dreams and fears come true at last
You can have yourself some mighty pretty thoughts or things
That never ever last
You can drive yourself up to the sky
Bouncing off the cabs and cadillacs
But you know you wanna stay alive like you ever really had a chance
Dazzling doors and heights you never get to
Make your head go round, heart skips a beat
All you want is here
And all you need to
Is to change the way your body fits
Mind admits these games are hard to play
But you really don't have another way
Life is on, you're on your own with your own fear of the unknown
In the middle of New York City
Where you really happen to belong

There's a reason
To why you decide to
Ignore all the stories
And let yourself shine
