It’s a little rock, a little pop -- a great addition to the American Idol alum’s sound. Listen to the song above, and check out the lyrics below. (As Daughtry sings, “That’s a good place to start.”) Hear his sweet voice again when UTOPIA premieres this Sunday, Sept. 7!

Chris Daughtry is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the rock band Daughtry and as the fourth-place contestant on the fifth season of American Idol. After his elimination from Idol, he was given a record deal by RCA Records and formed a band called Daughtry. Their self-titled debut album became the fastest selling debut rock album in Nielsen Soundscan history, selling more than one million copies after just five weeks of release. The album was recorded before the band was officially formed, making Chris Daughtry the only official member present on the album.

In its ninth week of release, Daughtry reached number one on the Billboard charts. Chris Daughtry is now the third most successful American Idol contestant in terms of record sales, behind only Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, who both won their respective seasons. At the 50th Grammy Awards, the band was nominated for Best Rock Song for the single "It's Not Over".

 

 
 
VERSE 1:
 
We're all in the gutter now
With cigarettes and alcohol
Life can surely beat you down
And throw your back against the wall
(Singing oh oh oh oh oh)
It's funny how your life can change
Turn around on a dime
Yeah it can take you down the darkest lane
Then lead you into better times
(Singing oh oh oh oh oh)
 
CHORUS:
 
Say Heaven, heaven, heaven
When all we've known is hell, hell, hell
If we make a new world
Then we got a story to tell
Will we stand together, gether, gether
Or just get torn apart, part, part
Let's find Utopia
That's a good place to start
 
VERSE 2:
 
I don't claim to have wrote the book of life
But read it all a couple times
I'd rather be soaking up the sun
And sippin' on the cheapest wine
(Singing oh oh oh oh oh)
 
CHORUS:
 
Say Heaven, heaven, heaven
When all we've known is hell, hell, hell
If we make a new world
Then we got a story to tell
Will we stand together, 'gether, 'gether
Or just get torn apart, part, part
Let's find Utopia
That's a good place to start
 
BRIDGE:
 
Money can't buy us
Never said our souls were for sale
But they're gonna try us
Whether we succeed or fail
This is Utopia,
Let’s make a brand new start
 
CHORUS:
 
Say Heaven, heaven, heaven
When all we've known is hell, hell, hell
If we make a new world
Then we got a story to tell
Will we stand together, 'gether, 'gether
Or just get torn apart, part, part
 
This is Utopia,
Let’s make a brand new start
This is Utopia,
Let's make a brand new start
This is Utopia,
Let's make a brand new start
