As a person who often has trouble dealing with change, this song was written as a lesson to myself, if not others, about making the best of that change. It’s about not looking back, but looking forward and knowing that you have to go on and you can’t give up.


When you least expect it
Destiny takes you by the hand
And leads you to the promised land
I found myself at the gates, yeah
I kinda thought I was late, yeah
I closed my eyes and jumped into the sand

Just like magic
It’s a brand new world
Chance poetic
It’s a brand new world
Take that chance
And let your flag unfurl
Face down fear
Cuz it’s a brand new world

New ways of thought are frightening
It hits you just like lightning
Pulls the floor from right under your feet
It's time to rise like the Phoenix
Pull the chain and I mean it’s
Our time to shine in the light

You never know when change might come
You never know what tomorrow brings
