Lyrics: Gareth Emery ft. Asia Whiteacre - Million Years



Million Years
Gareth Emery ft. Asia Whiteacre


I can see my way through the dark
You hide the night from me
As long as I can see the light in your eyes
There’s nowhere I rather be

We walked all night through the shadows of light
And I can’t reach your heart in my hands
Can’t reach your heart in my hands
You promised me that we would never grow old
That was a lifetime ago before I knew how to go
Before I knew how to go

I go anywhere for you
I’ll cross the sky for you
Wish I could fly to you
I live until the end
Till I see you again
I’m gonna remember you

For a million years
Always forever

I can feel you, you’re here next to me
I’ll keep you safe and sound
As long as you can hear the beat in my chest
I’ll never let you down

We walked all night through the shadows of light
And I can’t reach your heart in my hands
Can’t reach your heart in my hands
I want to keep you safe forever that way
Before your heart had to go
Before you had to go
Before I knew how to go

I go anywhere for you
I’ll cross the sky for you
Wish I could fly to you
I live until the end
Till I see you again
I’m gonna remember you

For a million years
Always forever
Always forever

Track is part of Gareth Emery's second studio album "Drive" released April 1, 2014 on Garuda

Proper international effort here. The original demo of this was done in a hotel room in Thailand, and I just couldn't stop playing it - I guess it's a little commercial sounding but super catchy and just put a big smile on my face every time I played it.

About a year later when I was back in the US, my management had Asia write this awesome vocal for it, and I finished it up in November 2013 at Everland Studios in Sydney in my week off between Stereosonic shows.

It was actually pretty tough dragging myself to the studio each morning when everyone else on the tour seemed to be partying and enjoying a week's holiday in Australia, but I was a month from my deadline so did what I had to do! Listening back now I'm glad I stuck with it.
