Niko pours his heART out again on this acoustic single featuring guitarist Mike Ruggiero recorded by Spartan Productions in the original 432Hz Pythagorean tuning


Forgive me Lord, you know I try my best
Please help me release this stress
Every day I try
And never ask for the reasons why
I believe in your love, and I trust
There’s hope for each and every one of us
As long as we try, as long as we have your love

Verse 1
Ever since day one, can’t you see, that everything that I’ve done
I’ve done for you, what more can I prove
I’m Trying, trying to win your love
I’m trying, but you’ve given up
But you’ve given up

Verse 2
I’m trying, I’m doing everything that I can do
But what’s it gonna take, for me to get through
For me to prove that everything I do I do for you
Cuz you are are me, and I am you
Just believe, together we will make it through
Experience the beginning of a whole new vibration,
Usher in a new generation of musical creation
