01. FRIEND IN ME

If you ask me to jump
I’ll say how high
If you ask me to run
I’ll run a thousand miles

If you ask me to stay babe
I’ll never leave your side
cuz’ I’d do anything for you
I’d do anything for you

I’ve seen you low, I’ve seen you high
I’ve seen you laugh, I’ve seen you cry
I know how you feel inside
cuz’ I’ve been there by your side
If you had to find your way back home
Just know that you won’t be alone
cuz’ you will always have a friend in me

If you tell me you’re lost
I’ll help you find your way
(find your way)
If you tell me you’re scared
I’ll send your fears away
(far away)

I’ll keep you safe babe
But I won’t stand in your way
(I’m here to stay)
cuz’ I’d do anything for you
I’d do anything for you
Ahhhh

I’ve seen you low, I’ve seen you high
I’ve seen you laugh, I’ve seen you cry
I know how you feel inside
cuz’ I’ve been there by your side
If you had to find your way back home
Just know that you won’t be alone
cuz’ you will always have a friend in me

You, you can always count on me
To pull you out from the dark
Into the light that you are

Oh you, you can always count on me
To pull you out from the dark
Into the light that you are
Ahhh

I’ve seen you low, I’ve seen you high
I’ve seen you laugh, I’ve seen you cry
(I’ve seen you laugh, I’ve seen you cry)
I know how you feel inside
cuz’ I’ve been there by your side
If you had to find your way back home
(If you ask me to stay)
Just know that you won’t be alone
(I’ll never leave your side)
cuz’ you will always have a friend in me

02. CAN’T LET GO

I remember that night you said hello
I could feel you so close, I couldn’t let go
Oh you looked so fine with nothing much to say
But the way you’d hold me, I couldn’t turn away

Through that night you took it slow
But you left me wanting you even more
Boy you got my blood rushing through my veins
You mesmerize me in mysterious ways

I don’t know, I don’t know
What you’ve done to me
You’ve got a hold on me
And I can’t let go
I can’t let go, I can’t let go

You told me that you didn’t know where to go
You held me so close out in the snow
You had me going crazy every day
I felt so lost cuz’ you had me blown away

Now can’t you see I’ve been travelin’ round the world
With the hope that someday I’d be your girl
I know you told me you’re not worth the wait
But I’ll do what it takes to go all the way

I don’t know, I don’t know
What you’ve done
You’ve got a hold on me
And I can’t let go
I can’t let go, I can’t let go
I can’t let go, I can’t let go
I want you
Oh only you

I can’t let go
I can’t let go
I can’t let go
I can’t let go
I can’t let go
I can’t let go
I can’t let go
I can’t let go

I don’t know, I don’t know
What you’ve done to me
You’ve got a hold on me
And I can’t let go
I can’t let go, I can’t let go
I can’t let go, I can’t let go
Ohhhh
I can’t let go
I want you
Oh only you

03. I WILL RISE

It was a dark and stormy night
Lightning strikes against the moonlight
Candles burning hot inside
The old clock chimes at midnight

It was the best of times
It was the worst of times
A new soul comes to life
An untold story of lies
Unfolds before our eyes

I will rise
I will rise
I will rise from this trap inside
This game has its final round
These chains can’t hold me down
I will rise
I will rise
I will rise

Through the years of sleepless nights
Hope beams as the sun would rise
Love is burning hot inside
Won’t stop til failures have died

Cast a spell to blind me from this doubtful mind
I won’t give up this fight
Your words stab me like a knife
As I bleed my heart’s desire

I will rise
I will rise
I will rise from this trap inside
This game has its final round
These chains can’t hold me down
I will rise
I will rise
I will rise

Oooh, clouds of dreams
Cools midnight skies over seas
It electrifies, electrifies

Oooh, clouds of dreams
Cools midnight skies over seas
It electrifies, electrifies

Oooh, clouds of dreams
Cools midnight skies over seas
It electrifies, electrifies

This game has its final round
These chains can’t hold me down
I will rise
I will rise
I will rise

This game has its final round
These chains can’t hold me down
I will rise
I will rise
I will rise

04. THEY CAN’T STOP ME

Sticks and stones
Softly break my bones
Left here all alone
I am lonely

I hear them speak
Loudly through my door
Calling me names I won’t
Let them hurt me

They don’t know what they say
Can’t harm me
They don’t know what they do
Can’t alarm me
They, they can’t stop me

I see my reflection
In these grains of sand
Time flows hand in hand
I am here now

My wounds have healed
I now understand
I’ve made my amends
I see clear now

They don’t know what they say
Can’t harm me
They don’t know what they do
Can’t alarm me
They, they can’t stop me

They don’t know what they see
Can’t blind me
They don’t know what they believe
Can’t drive me
They, they can’t stop me

I’ve lived through false hopes
I’ve heard it all before
They say that I won’t succeed
They say that I give up my dreams

But I see right through
These walls my faith renews
I know that I will succeed
I believe in my dreams

Ahhh
Ahhh
Ahhh

They don’t know what they say
Can’t harm me
They don’t know what they do
Can’t alarm me
They, they can’t stop me

They don’t know what they see
Can’t blind me
They don’t know what they believe
Can’t drive me
They, they can’t stop me

05. TOUCH THE SKY

Ooh, oh yeah
White diamonds shine through your hair
The sunlight shines down on us
Can you hear the beautiful sound of love
My heart beats loud for you

I will always love you til the end of time
Your love gives me wings to fly
I will always love you til the end of time
With you I can touch the sky

I take you in like a potion
I’m in motion
I’m back to life
You pull me in my like a crossbow
I’m your arrow
You shoot I fly

I will always love you til the end of time
Your love gives me wings to fly
I will always love you til the end of time
With you I can touch the sky

Through the day
The sunlight shines down on us
Can you hear the beautiful sound of love
My soul cries out for you

I take you in like a potion
I’m in motion
I’m back to life
You pull me in my like a crossbow
I’m your arrow
You shoot I fly

I will always love you til the end of time
Your love gives me wings to fly
I will always love you til the end of time
With you I can touch the sky
Ohh…

I can fly
I can fly
With you I can touch the sky
I can fly
I can fly
With you I can touch the sky

06. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

You, you were standing with roses at my doorstep
Raindrops falling on your beautiful face
You, you don’t know what’s about to hit you, give me a sec
Please forgive me, I pray you take this with grace

You, you see I’ve been thinking about us, I’m stressed
We’ve been down this road before, twice now, babe
I, I can’t take this anymore, can you love me less
Please know it’s not your fault, listen when I say

I, I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

I, I would share with you my hopes and dreams (hopes and dreams)
And you, you would smile and say I was going places (going places)
I, I gave you everything way more than you need (more than you need)
But it was never enough, forever insecure beneath your face

I, I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

You are such a beautiful soul
But you can’t make me whole

I, I’ve gotta let you go, now you’re free (now you’re free)
And I, I hope you find yourself in the midst of this chase (midst of this chase)
You, you have the strength within to release me (release me)
Please know it’s not your fault, listen when I say

I, I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

I, I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

07. AMERICAN DREAM

I don’t know
How the days pass me by
Everything seems slow
People just walk on by
But I see
Yeah I soak in all the sunlight
I believe
Someday I’ll be alright

Oh yeah
I work hard through days and nights
For barely any pay
My body feels tired
I survive another day
I sometimes lose my mind
I often lose my way
Then I hear a voice say
Don’t ever forget

The American Dream
That’s what I’m after
The American Dream
That’s what I’ve hope for
The American Dream
I will shine living the American Dream

I will go
To a place I’m free to live my life
(But) everyone says no
They say my head’s up in the sky
I’ll be free
I’ll speak out loud what’s wrong from right
I will achieve
What all I’ve dreamed, I see the light

Oh yeah
I work hard through days and nights
For barely any pay
My body feels tired
I survive another day
I often lose sight
Of what my soul prays
Then I hear a voice say
Don’t ever forget

The American Dream
That’s what I’m after
The American Dream
That’s what I’ve hope for
The American Dream
I will shine living the American Dream

I don’t know
How the days pass my by
But I hear my soul
I believe
My memories
Made a stronger me
Yes I believe…

The American Dream
That’s what I’m after
The American Dream
That’s all I hope for
The American Dream
I will shine living the American Dream

08. FOLLOW YOUR HEART

I am strong
There’s a power inside me
I’ll take on this life
Live the way I’m meant to be

Yes I am strong
A fire’s burning inside me
My heart desires
For all the world to see

You’ve got to follow your heart
Follow your heart
You’ve got to follow your heart
Follow your heart
You’ve got to follow, follow your heart

We are strong
Our beliefs will set us free
From all the failures we’ve tried
We now see the truth clearly

Yeah we are strong
Fireworks ignite our dreams
Our hearts desire
For all the world to believe

You’ve got to follow your heart
Follow your heart
You’ve got to follow your heart
Follow your heart
You’ve got to follow, follow your heart

I feel the power inside me
I can see right through the finish line
All my life I dreamed this
And now I can see the light
I could see it
I could hear it
I could feel

You’ve got to follow, follow your heart
You’ve got to follow, follow your heart
Your heart, Your heart, Your heart
Your heart, Your heart, Your heart
Your heart, Your heart, Your heart
Your heart, Your heart

You’ve got to follow, follow your heart
You’ve got to follow, follow your heart

I am one for all
There’s a power inside me
I will stand tall
Live proud and peacefully

09. DID YOU EVER THINK

Did you ever think
Of all the possibilities
Tell me your wish
Of anything you want to be
Did you ever think
That what you wish
Could come true

Did you ever think
That when you’d reach out a helping hand
The love you give
Has touched a soul with no strength to stand
Did you ever think
That what you give
Comes back to you

Somehow you pushed on
No matter what went wrong
You always came out strong
But did you ever think it
Did you ever think it
Did you ever think it
At all

You’re on the brink
Of something beautiful and deep
Your lost wish
Comes to surface like a beam
Did you ever think
That what you wish
Is now true

Somehow you pushed on
No matter what went wrong
You always came out strong
But did you ever think it
Did you ever think it
Did you ever think it
Way back when

10. FAKE NEW REAL YOU

I wish I could take a trip
Inside your head
Thoughts flow like a river
Boulders ahead
Emotions come crashing down the waterfall
Plunge into madness against these walls
Waterfall
Waterfall
Waterfall

I wish I could get you
So I’d forget you
Babe in respect you
But I need to let you
Run free from me
You’re free to be
A fake new real you

I wish I could take a flight
Inside your mind
Feel invincible as the sun
I could touch the sky
Till darkness looms
The moon shines
We’re back again to sadness
Can you hear me cry
Waterfall
Waterfall
Waterfall

I wish I could get you
So I’d forget you
Babe I respect you
But I need to let you
Run free from me
You’re free to be
A fake new real you
A fake new real you

This roller coaster ride
Drives me crazy, baby
Spare me a ticket
It’s time I say goodbye
I need to save me, baby
I’m escaping the madness

I wish I could get you
So I’d forget you
Babe I respect you
But I need to let you
Run free from me
You’re free to be
A fake new real you
A fake new real you

11. MY WAY

World’s in motion
Setting the pace
In confusion
Everything’s a race

People with their conclusions
On what’s right or wrong
Norms set by institutions
That’s why I’m singing this song

Gotta do this my way
It’s my life to lose
Not just cuz’ they say
It’s my only path

Gotta do this my way
It’s my life to lose
Not just cuz’ they say
It’s my only path
(to choose)

All of this commotion
People thinking they know
About my situation
And where I should go

All these restrictions
Meant to hold me down
Too many contradictions
With all these voices around

Gotta do this my way
It’s my life to lose
Not just cuz’ they say
It’s my only path

Gotta do this my way
It’s my life to lose
Not just cuz’ they say
It’s my only path
(to choose)

Gotta tell you now
This is my life
Not gonna let me down
No more strife
Today’s the day
I drive it my way

Gotta do this my way
It’s my life to lose
Not just cuz’ they say
It’s my only path

Gotta do this my way
It’s my life to lose
Not just cuz’ they say
It’s my only path
(to choose)

World’s in motion
Setting the pace
In confusion
Everything’s a race

Gotta do this my way
It’s my life to lose
Not just cuz they say
It’s my only path

Gotta do this my way
It’s my life to lose
Not just cuz they say
It’s my only path
(to choose)

12. GRACE AND GLORY

Here we are now
At the world’s edge
We stand tall
Trying not to fall

All the times that
We felt scared
Brought us closer
To push us over

In our hearts we strive to leap far
In our dreams we reach for the stars
Oh where do we go from here
With a touch of grace and glory

We’ve been bold to dare
Our hearts have bled
We shared our lives to get us here
With a touch of grace
As we reach within
We can achieve anything
Ahhhhh

Here we are now
At the world’s edge
We stand tall
There’s no more walls

All the triumphs
That we share
Gives us power
To push on farther

In our hearts we strive to leap far
In our dreams we reach for the stars
Oh where do we go from here
With a touch of grace and glory

We’ve been bold to dare (bold to dare)
Our hearts have bled (hearts have bled)
We shared our lives to get us here
With a touch of grace (touch of grace)
As we reach within (reach within)
We can achieve anything
(anything, anything, anything)
Ahhhhh

With a touch of grace
We can see the light
There’s no limit to the passion we feel inside
With a taste of glory
We can reach high
There’s no limit to our dreams as we touch the sky

With a touch of grace
We can see the light
There’s no limit to the passion we feel inside
With a taste of glory
We can reach high
There’s no limit to our dreams as we touch the sky

We’ve been bold to dare
Our hearts have bled
We shared our lives to get us here
With a touch of grace
As we reach within
We can achieve anything
Ahhhhh
