Felix Cartal – New Scene (feat. Ofelia) Lyrics:
Everything’s not what it seems.
I can’t believe…
there were more steps to this dream.
All I wanted was something more
than what everyone was reaching for.
I can’t believe…
Because I want to dream.
I’ll be the best escape of the in between
I’ll be the…
first step to a brand new scene.
All I wanted was more…
