Songs based on characters and themes from Avatar: The Last Airbender and Avatar: Legends Of Korra animated series.

*I wrote a lot of these songs around about the time I came across a video of Jon Gomm playing his song "Passionflower" and really wanted to write intertwining intricate acoustic guitar lines.

A lot of these songs are results of the being inspired by Jon Gomm's style, Hey Rosetta's 2014 album, Second Sight and Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Track Name: The Energy Of Youth Versus The Wealth Of Experience
VERSE 1:
No matter how strong I am, nothing ever seems to go just like it’s planned
And I almost die every time

CHORUS:
We, we, we’ve got the wrong idea and we’re trusting all the people
Who we really should have feared
And it’s oh so obvious in hindsight
Set the details out right
But the heat of battle fans the fire in our lives

VERSE 2:
No matter how hard I try situations always seem to catch me on the fly
And I always fight every time to be right

CHORUS 2:
We, we, we are the tidal wave and we’re bring the erosion on a monumental scale
It was oh so obvious in hindsight
Now we’re gonna put right
Anything and everything dismantled in the fight
Track Name: Finish Line
VERSE:
Does light hold strong when the darkness comes along?
Do we hold the truth?
Do hands hold hope like a fraying rope?
Do we see some proof?

CHORUS:
Everything will be alright
Everything will work out fine
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry
Don’t you hurry to the finish line

VERSE 2:
Does fire lose heat when we chose to retreat?
Did we lose ourselves?
Like air we can breathe, simple things to believe
Can we find ourselves in time?
Track Name: As Weak As We Are - Part 2 (Korra's Song)
VERSE:
We weren’t always friends when we met at first
Trust is hard to mend, gone from bad to worse

CHORUS:
Everyone gets angry, at least from time to time
And sometimes we go crazy and let out what’s inside
But everyone needs everyone to not be eye for eye
Cause in the end we’re only making ourselves blind

VERSE 2:
You and I are friends
You and her are more
Love cannot be bent
It’s an open door

BRIDGE:
You can play with fire but don’t you toy with me
Cause you are my desire, we’re something don’t you see?
But time and trust are things that we require to heal and mend
And time and trust are things that we just cannot learn to bend.

CHORUS 2:
Everyone gets lonely when they’re away from home
And everyone gets homesick when they are on their own
But everyone needs everyone to try and get along
Cause in the end we’re only as weak as we are strong
Track Name: Water You Waiting For?
LYRICS:
VERSE:
It’s time for resolution
This time we will resolve
There’s no other solution
No sins we can’t absolve

PRE CHORUS:
But you and me, we’re songs without a key
A noteless harmony
Like sour air to breathe
But you and I are we stars without a sky
It’s a long and hard goodbye
But to fail is not to try

VERSE 2:
It’s time for a conclusion
That brings inner most peace
It’s time for resolution
For greatest and the least

CHORUS:
Looking at the ocean, but you are all I see
The gravity that pulls me in and sucks the air from me
Looking to the South Pole, I’m drawn in your breath
I shrug off insecurities and embrace my inner self
Palaces and kingdoms fall but I must rise above
Master all my own desires and protect the ones I love
The ones who pulled me from this grave and met along the way
The path I walk such lonesome miles from here and to the grave

From here into the grave
Track Name: Been Waiting For
VERSE:
Holding the hand of things we never speak of
Cold skin on skin, ocean in the background, crashing in the foreground
You looked at me, eyes as blue as clear skies
Deeper than the waves we’re flying over, cliffs resemble Dover

CHORUS:
Is this what I have been waiting for?
Is this what we have been waiting for?

VERSE 2:
I feel unsure, bordering uncertain
Ice cold and hard, hitting like a bison, wonderfully frightened
I look at you, my doubts as plain as daylight
You hold my hand, tell me that’s alright, tell me that it’s all right

BRIDGE:
I need somewhere to belong
I need someone to be strong
I need somewhere to belong
I’ve been waiting for so long
