I'm not drowning in your silent sea Your cold shoulder put no ice on me Never once will you see these eyes cry We may have lost our love but I ain't lost my life Your self-sufficient love isn't what a want A one-track one-way train Isn't one I'll take I dreamt of a future holding hands with you But now I see this is what I gotta do [Chorus] Make the Escape Taking my whole life back All your lies, baby, you can keep them My heart ain't glass for you to crack and peel 'Cause you found out my heart was made of steel Like a prison I was trapped by you Holding on to what I thought was true But I woke up and dug my own way out Not even your cage could keep this man down Your self-sufficient love isn't what I want Your train has arrived but you won't find me on your side I dreamt of a future holding hands with you But now I see this is what I gotta do [Chorus 2x] When I escaped When I escaped When I escaped I dreamt of a future holding hands with you But now I see I gotta let go of 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

There is a time when we can't seem to find A melody 'cause the music is wry There is a time when we all start to drive And our road is stopped with no stopping sign [Chorus] We all need someone to rely on When things turn out wrong We all need a simple voice to sing All that we feel when we don't know the song A shoulder to cry on when faith runs dry A reason to live when hate makes us wanna die We all need someone to keep believing We all need just one Somebody There is a time when you pour your soul right Into a never ending hole But if you call on me I promise to be A hand to hold when you feel you're falling [Chorus] Whenever you need me you know I'll be there Where ever you are just call and I swear I'll come in a hurry so baby don't worry I'll find you because I am your Somebody I am your Somebody [Chorus 2x] We all need just one Somebody

I was lost in a darkened room Wandering in circles Time didn't stop nor did it continue A walking shell in this world But then you came to me And suddenly [Chorus] I have no one to blame Love is the only game that you play (In this serenity) My doubts washed away The truth was written on your face I'd left the pain (It's taken over me) Called out to your heart You were like a work of art I'm amazed (This picture is complete) When did the night Stop Shining on me every time I'm awake? (I hope this light on us don't) Stop Shining (x8) My rebirth was when I found you You returned my smile You're the first I gave my heart to I walked with you each mile I never had to shed a tear You held me and my path was clear [Chorus] (You gave this light to me) When did the night Stop Shining on me every time I'm awake? Now I'm bathed in light [Chorus] You gave this light to me

I peer into the flame I see an empty cage My Spirit calls your name Waiting for the day You'll return the call and it won't hurt at all This distance is so far I can't hear your heart Breathing is too hard It's tearing me apart My Spirit can't survive When you're not by my side I'm inside a cave I can't touch your face It's too hard to see My soul is dead asleep I miss you, I need you back I wish you were here 'cause without you I cannot last My Spirt is in chains Bound into this place I can't hear your voice Silence fills this void I'm ice frozen cold Waiting 'til I'm old For a day that won't Ever arrive, this I know... My Spirt is in chains Bound into this place I can't hear your voice Silence fills this void I need you (x5)

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]

First you say you're going out Then I don't hear from you It's midnight, my phone's still on And a call's yet to come through I've been patient long enough Your final strike is up What the Hell have you been up to? Is this what you call "love?" Round and round the cycle goes I'm the lake and your the snow Frozen I am, while you blow Well blow right back 'cause I don't think so [Chorus] I'm gonna Track U Down My radar is on you Got the helicopter now the media crew Spotlight search, gonna find out where you been I'm gonna Track U Down Your run's about to end I'm gonna Track U Down Track U Down, Down, Down I'm gonna Track U Down Track U Down, Down, Down I'm gonna Track U Down Track U Down, Down, Down I'm gonna Track U Down Track U Down, Down, Down Got the keys, I'm driving down Interstate 205 No one better be up on you because you know you're mine Like a jolt I suddenly can pick up on your scent Spider Sense is tingling I feel your presence Round and round the cycle goes I'm the stop sign on your road Frozen I am while you roll Well, roll on back 'cause I don't think so [Chorus] Eye you with peripheral I see you over there No escape I see it all and tension fills the air Then you get down on one knee and open up something The last thing that I heard you say was "Will you marry me?" Ha Ha... [Chorus 2x] I'm gonna Track U Down I'm gonna Track U Down I'm gonna Track U Down I'm gonna Track U Down

Echoing in the silence is damaged distance Hidden, holding on to us without a witness We let it walk in fast and let it destroy us Blinded, I was fooled Only seeing the surface [Chorus] You broke my heart and then left me with the pieces I fought right by your side and trusted we could beat this You said it won't kill me if I walked alone in my life But I made you walk with me and now I see you were right ... Days and weeks and months all now blend together Fading shades of what I thought was forever Poison penetrates feeling like a feather Don't even know it's there until you need the ether [Chorus] You Hurt me! You Hurt me! But that don't mean a thing You Hurt me! You Hurt me! I thought I meant something "Fire" is no synonym to the death I felt that day You Hurt me! You Hurt me! In every single way Souls are cut by actions Holes are dug in reaction Rooms can be too crowded Haunting me in all I do and I don't like the sound of it [Chorus] You Hurt me! You Hurt me! But that don't mean a thing You Hurt me! You Hurt me! I thought I meant something "Fire" is no synonym to the death I felt that day You Hurt me! You Hurt me! In every single way Echoing in the silence is damaged distance Hidden, holding on to us without a witness You let it walk in fast and let it destroy us My heart is bleeding Can't you see how much you Hurt it?

Do you see the mirror from the other side? Do you believe that what you see is right? I am the call Speaking to these four walls No light pointing Will someone guide me? I wish you could see, wish you could hear me But the world is deaf to my voice... Truth is a lie Surface isn't real You, you and I are linked inside a deal I am the call Speaking to these four walls No light pointing Will someone guide me? I wish you could see, wish you could hear me But the world is deaf to my voice... [Chorus] Silent as the sea calls the moon to speak You turned your back to me Are You Listening? Threw me inside a wheel Spinning on how I feel Tell me this isn't real Are You Listening? Please answer me I'm calling on your heart Free anything Why erase what you start? I am the call Speaking to these four walls No light pointing Will someone guide me? I wish you could see, wish you could hear me But the world is deaf to my voice... [Chorus] [Chorus 2] There's no escape from this How did the arrow miss? Tell me this isn't it Are You Listening? You locked it all away Hidden inside a cage Why can't I feel the same? Are You Listening? Please don't turn away Drowning me in this pain Fading this into gray Are You Listening? I am the call Speaking to these four walls No light pointing Will someone guide me? I wish you could see, wish you could hear me But the world is deaf to my voice... [Chorus] [Chorus 2]

I believe in fairy tales In Santa Claus and trains with wheels I'm a prince in a far-off kingdom A knight in armor when I need to be The stories I have to be told Are for the young to keep ahold and sing "La, La, La" I believe happy endings In miracles and perfect weddings Eternal love without a problem Fantasies and bugs that talk to me [Chorus] Taking a walk slowly Under the Moon Hearing the fireflies whisper their tune Caught in the magic of falling for you Over again as we walk slowly Under the Moon I believe in big adventures In hop-scotch battles and playground swingers Jumping high into the puddles Dancing in rain and getting mud on me Firefighter trucks and sandy beaches Were in my grasp for me to reach and sing "La, La, La" I believe in happy endings In dreams with twists and turns and bendings Eternal love without a problem Fantasies and bugs that talk to me [Chorus] Watching the stars twinkle closely with you Hearing your heart beating my favorite tune Holding your hand as all my dreams come true Being in love as we walk slowly Under the Moon Under the Moon (x9) I believe in fairy tales In Santa Claus and trains with wheels I'm a prince in a far-off kingdom A knight in armor when I need to be...

Echoes move across the pond of a memory far beyond When bombs were cast and fears were faced Yet there's something unerased I can feel the chill of the place where time stood still Where I fought for my home When I was alone Here I am Haunted by where my battle began [Chorus] I prayed for a way out Scared of the unknown To find my soul I faced execution During my Revolution What was close is somehow distant Like a storm that came and was gone in an instant Though time has passed, it reminds me still of the water I drank and can't refill I won the fight But there was a price So here I am Transfixed by what I now understand [Chorus] Never again will things be the same The storm is gone but the damage remains They say that you should never look back But what do you learn if you only act? I don't wanna be a fool The heated wind is suddenly cool Echoes move across the pond I sat in silence It's time to move on... [Chorus] Because I believed in me I lost everything...

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]

about

Following 2 technopop demo albums, Jonathan Miller decided to go in a brand new direction. First demonstrating the brand new acoustic rock sound, Jonathan first debuted the single "Somebody" on November 21st, 2009. The accompanying music video quickly gained popularity and thousands of views on his YouTube Channel.

A second single, "Under the Moon" was released the following February also to popular acclaim. The intimate ballad is about connecting with one's inner child and seeing the beauty in the simple things in life.

"Celebration" and "Track U Down" were released as the album's final singles in 2010 as well. The album coincided with Miller's high school graduation and really represents his senior year filled with love, heartbreak, and strength.

"This Summer Air" remains one of Jonathan Miller's most popular albums even though it's sonically quite different from the rest of his catalogue. The album has also received hundreds of thousands of plays on Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora radio.
