Crossed the desert and the seas Bled in fire and fell to my knees I woke up in the shadows My soul tore 'til it was hollow But I kept going on Even when my heart was gone The Road to now has brought me to Dawn...

I can see you watchin', starin' over here at me If you wanna play then get the hell up off your seat You can be the driver If you know just what I mean Tell the DJ turn it up and swing your body next to me [Chorus] Let the music take you over We can get it right You can use it, make me hotter You got what I like Free that sexy little devil Make me blow my mind If You're on the Same Level Dance with me tonight Been around the world but I ain't seen no one like you Got me so asphyxiated wa-watching ya move Like a cannon, baby, I'm about to come unglued Explode this curiosity I have all over you [Chorus] If you feel the waves that I've been passing to you Reciprocate how you're feeling by the way you move If you know what I mean, touch me here tonight If You're on the Same Level Take me for a ride [Chorus 2x]

I'm losing control My body's calling I know what it wants and it's gotta have you Patience sucks I must admit it When the Gods require my solar desire Hold me close and pull me in Take me underneath your skin [Chorus] Like A Star I'm burning up now, white-hot us now Here we go Like A Star, yeah, I'm connected You've infected my soul Like a star you take me higher Galaxies are built in fire Like a star you burst inside me It's energy I feed off of like a star When we align it's a constellation Your toes to your face I can't help but want you Powerful force, I'm lost inside you Baby, pull me under and shake me there like thunder Hold me close and let it flow Don't stop, just go, oh oh! [Chorus] Like a star you shine so bright I'm hooked on you every night, yeah Like a star I want to feel your strength it's hard to resist Like A Star Take me, shake me I just wanna feel you Touch me, taste me This rocket's taking off [Chorus 2x] Like a star you take me higher Galaxies are built in fire Like a star you burst inside me It's energy I feed off of Like A Star

Once upon a time I fell hard in love It felt so strong but we built it wrong Now I'm picking the pieces up Lying here in my open bed looking at the stars Wondering how you could find me now that I'm without a heart I'm alone in the dark gripping on to my chest An echo beats inside of me 'cause all I have is nothing left [Chorus] But there's a Heart in the Atmosphere Waiting for me To fall from the stratosphere and make me complete There's a Heart in the Atmosphere It belongs to me If anything can happen here It will return to beat Once upon a time I was whole inside But a piece of me left now I can't seem to rest Each day keeps passing by Happiness does exist, I know when I see the stars If they can be bright then so can I When I reconnect with my heart Faith is just believing in what you don't know for sure So if we take a breath each day Then time may ease this sore [Chorus] Someday soon I hope to see a change in this human body Heart and soul will re-collide When the stars all align [Chorus 2x] Faith is just believing in what we don't know for sure...
6.
I know what light is now It's when you smile There's people saying don't follow your heart Learn from us and what we didn't do But I wanna wake up and see your face It's beautiful Awake or sleeping, yeah I've made my choice You're worth it to me [Chorus] Every time you smile It's a Celebration of the way you speak Every time you breath It's a Celebration of the way you sing Every time you love It's a Celebration of your heart beating Every time you smile It's a Celebration made for you and me I know what light is now It's where you take me I wanna hold you close and dance Just you and me as we fly into eternity [Chorus] I'll go where ever you want to go That's how we'll help each other grow I just wanna love you You and me That's how it ought to be Only you and only me I just wanna love you I just wanna love you... [Chorus]

If I was the seed you must've been the rain Helping me grow every step of the way Your passion sparks my empty page You gave me a pen to form the words to say You caught and won't give it away I'm wishing on a star that brightens my day A simple touch and your compassion displays a perfect feeling Hope it always stays [Chorus] Two wings of a feather We can always fly Holding each other at the other's side I look into your eyes and I know I'll be fine So Forever May You Be Mine I've learned that there's always a reason why People walk in and out of our lives Like no one before you came without a goodbye You stayed so close and watched my tears run dry When I was invisible you wouldn't leave me to hide You reached out a hand to me and my fear could subside That simple moment was the perfect light To brighten my world and make it all bright [Chorus] I don't know how you got to me You were the last thing my heart was expecting But I can't complain 'cause I love our shine I adore you so Forever May You Be Mine May you be mine! Please be mine, I can love you if you want me to [Chorus 2x] We're two wings of a feather We'll soar with each other Take my hand and we'll turn to the sky So Forever May You Be Mine

This was the day a year ago When I felt that rush It was like the daisies bloomed, the stars aligned to point to you My heart opened to love It could've been rain It could've been sunny No matter, either way you were gonna be my honey [Chorus] It's you and me, forever In This Summer Air We're gonna be together In This Summer Air This was the day when you tickled me up When you held me tight If the sun could shine no more You would light the world with your Sparkling, magical eyes Winter would be snowy Fall leaves would keep blowing Spring still would be the start of new life given by your heart [Chorus 2x] I may not know that much But I know this is true It started with a perfect kiss and now I'm marrying you I'm marrying you I'm marrying you I love you! [Chorus]

There’s a strength I shelved away Questioning it’s usefulness In faded day A fork in the road appeared Neither side was clear Out of the blue there was faith again Waiting to see me through Here I am Calm and without a plan [Chorus] We pray for a way out Wanting to find our home We undergo an evolution Waiting for our Revolution Fall leaves In a gentle breeze Winter arrives and you’re frozen there Like the burning trees At this two-way split I’m wondering Which path shall I choose? I won’t live like the road behind Losing precious time Here I am Sinking in the sand [Chorus] I can’t choose left and I can’t choose right What am I doing in my life Love exists to those who believe Even when you can’t see Pray for a better day Then giving up will slowly fade Now I believe in me Now I can truly see [Chorus 2] I prayed for a way out Wanting to find my home I underwent an evolution Waiting for my Revolution

I was once a dreamer like you Just someone who kept passing through Dreaming for the spotlight But scared to stand inside I was one that let others shine I thought I wasn't as bright 'Cause confidence doesn't come to you But it's there when you need it to Because fear is not a home It won't ever be so don't make it one When you see that you've got what it takes Then just like me, our time has come [Chorus] I've been waiting for this Rising Eon The sun dawning on a new creation It's gonna happen in this Rising Eon I'm gonna be one in a million One in a million... I was once a dreamer like you When falling down was easy to do Years passed before I knew how to stand up right I was lost until someone came Who opened my eyes and showed me the way One moment can last forever Never forget, always remember Because fear is not a home It won't ever be so don't make it one When you see that everything changes Then just like me our dreams can shape us [Chorus] [Chorus 2] I've been waiting for this Rising Eon Life is a gift that we've all been given It's gonna happen in this Rising Eon I'm gonna be the one in a million It all starts here and our time has come To join in hands as we become one We're all here for the same reason The chance to shine in this Rising Eon [Chorus] [Chorus 2] [Chorus] I'm gonna be the one in a million...

I believed that love was a knot Something so strong it held like a rock But then you left and now I know the sun is gone to let clouds bring the snow Oh My path is clear Oh I'm leaving... [Chorus] Goodbye December You have my heart but I gotta move on I wish you could come with me Goodbye December My home is weathered It won't come back Though you know I still believe you and I were meant to be But living in lies is not living So goodbye my lover I wish you forever Goodbye December I'll always remember you... I know that I can't turn back time Erase it all and make it right So I've tried to apologize to you for not being there When life fell through Oh Don't know what else you want Oh So I'm letting you go [Chorus] You and I had our place in the stars Sorry that I tore our whole family apart Not to excuse it, but you never did say Months and years only fade into days So here I am all stripped and released I hope somewhere that we all find peace Goodbye today and I'll always remember The love that we had but it's gone with December [Chorus] You and I were meant to be But living in lies is not living to me So goodbye my lover I wish you forever Goodbye December I'll always remember you...

I've found a reason A reason to show A way to let go A reason to love And why not to give up There has been a lot I have been through Had some dreams that would not come true Been some paths that I should have taken There's some questions that I've mistaken If I could change what happened to me Would I be the human you see? Haunted by the past But I pulled through Stronger, yes But wiser too... I can see a new me My time is near My mind is clear [Chorus] Finally I know what to do My eyes can see the truth The Comeback is in view I know what to do Finally I know what to believe And I believe in me And that's all that I need I'm setting my guarded heart free A new emblazoned light inside me Shows me things that I hadn't seen There's a lot that I missed before But now I see what I ignored Now I'm bathed in a growing light Now it's my turn to shine tonight I look back and in hindsight life was hard But now it's exciting! I can see a new me My time is here My mind is clear [Chorus] I've finally found a reason Something that I can believe in All the doubts have gone away My skies are no longer grey Heart is pumpin' My world is spinnin' Time to jump in and start livin' What went wrong is in the past It's all gone and I am back (x2) [Chorus] I've finally found a reason Something that I can believe in All the doubts have gone away My skies are no longer grey Heart is pumpin' My world is spinnin' Time to jump in and start livin' What went wrong is in the past It's all gone and I am back (x2) I. AM. BACK.

I tried to be myself I tried to open up But like a doll thrown on a shelf I was a silent dove Through the sacred fire I was burned and was scarred I walked on a constant wire I almost fell apart You stole something I loved Filled me with hate and doubt Well now I have had enough The truth is coming out Gotta do what's best for me It's been an eternal night Found the power in my beliefs Got the weapons to win the fight [Chorus] There's no way I'll give up It's not in my blood I am on the hunt to show what I'm made of Now that I'm awake I can finally say I'm going insane from the world I tried to save I'm unable to breathe Their strengths increase It's like I'm choking by those I thought loved me You say you know it's hard You caused the hardest part Now I see who you are from my Convulsion Heart Breathe, Breathe, Breathe If you want someone to blame you can blame yourself You're stuck in your mental game Fighting air in a shell Your words are in humane stinging my heart to death You thought you could have your way Now look who has nothing left [Chorus] It's been months and months and I've had enough I'm sorry if you don't like it but I'm gonna be blunt You refuse to hear, you continue to lie Well now I guess, baby, it's your time to cry Call it what you want: "Rebellion," "Immaturity" But not everything I say is make believe So any way you put it, you know I'm done, I'm through To give up on love? Sorry I refuse! [Chorus] Breathe, Breathe, Breathe Breathe, Breathe, Breathe

about

"Shadows of December" is the conclusion to a trilogy of extended plays and music following Jonathan Miller's junior effort, "This Summer Air." A compilation album much like the first E. P. (2010's "Rising Eon") this record features new songs as well as re-done old favorites.

The introduction track gives listeners a first glimpse into Miller's fourth record while also lamenting on his "road" to "December's" release. The lead-off single "It's Alright to Fall in Love" follows reminding us of the track released nearly a year before the album's release.

The album's new cuts "Like A Star" and "Heart in the Atmosphere" are techno songs about love and learning to love respectively.

"Shadows of December" also features 4 updated songs from "This Summer Air." All of which have been musically changed to fit Jonathan's techno sound he is known for.

A first for Miller, "December" also features a duet. "Rising Eon" was to be the title track on its 2010 counterpart, however was unable to be finished by the albums release therefore left off the track list. Stephen Miller, Jonathan's brother, lends his talented voice on the uplifting, inspiring track about becoming the "one in a million." Stephen helped co-pen the track showcasing his writing chops as well.

The closing title track, "Goodbye December" is the official second single from the record. It is an emotional techno-ballad about letting go of all the suffering in your life and moving on. Miller has stated that this is the most personal song he has ever written. He hopes it inspires others to live your life honestly, accepting any consequences to choices openly, and allowing oneself to be happy.
