Track Name: How Can It Be
When I woke up this morning
I noticed something mighty strange
Something in this world had profoundly changed
Then I looked out the window
Saw the same things I see every day
So what had changed
For a while I really couldn’t say

How can it be that the world feels all different
How can it be when it looks just the same
How can it be
There’s only one conclusion
Oh-ho-wow I must have changed

Walking round in the new me
Moving through the strangest land
Filled with wonder and feelings I don’t understand
It’s the biggest adventure
To be myself in a whole new way
Such a great feeling
I hope it lasts another day

How can it be that the world feels all different
How can it be when it looks just the same
How can it be
There’s only one conclusion
Oh-ho-wow I must have changed

solo

How can it be that the world feels all different
How can it be when it looks just the same
How can it be
There’s only one conclusion
Oh-ho-wow I must have changed
Track Name: Like Superman
Put his girl to bed
On his way to leave the room
When she says:
Daddy I’m afraid of the dark
Don’t leave me
Don’t leave me here alone
He turns to her to say:
Baby don’t you know
I’m always in your heart

Never fear when I’m not around you
Don’t feel despair when I’m out of sight
‘Cause in our hearts we stay connected
I can feel you everywhere
And when you need me
I’ll come flying like superman
Like superman

He is in New York
She in cold Amsterdam
On the phone they talk
About those little things
Daddy I’m so alone
When will you come home?

Never fear when I’m not around you
Don’t feel despair when I’m out of sight
‘Cause in our hearts we stay connected
I can feel you everywhere
And when you need me
I’ll come flying like superman
Like superman

solo

Never fear when I’m not around you
Don’t feel despair when I’m out of sight
‘Cause in our hearts we stay connected
I can feel you everywhere
And when you need me
I’ll come flying like superman
Like superman
Track Name: Hold On To Your Dreams
Doesn’t mater who you are
Doesn’t matter where you live
Doesn’t matter how old
How much money you can give
For it’s locked in your heart
The will to be more
More than you are

Never give up
Never give in
Hold on to your dreams
Hold on to your dreams
You can make them real

Determination is what you need
Be persistent
When others are weak
You need to be strong
When others are failing
You have to move on

Never give up
Never give in
Hold on to your dreams
Hold on to your dreams
Hold on to your dreams
You can make them real

solo

Never give up
Never give in
Hold on to your dreams
Hold on to your dreams
Hold on to your dreams
You can make them real
Track Name: This Is Me
You can try to be someone you’re not
And suffer all your life
Or you can try to be yourself
Have a little fun
And enjoy the ride
You decide
You decide

If you always live the easy life
You’ll mostly do alright
But you’ll never see things go your way
Unless you take a stand and fight
You decide
You decide

When you look at yourself in the mirror
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
Can you smile and say
This is me
‘Cause only when you start looking at yourself that way
Your life will be as it was meant to be

It may be hard to look past the darkness in your life
And see the blinding light (can you see the light)
Of all the good things you bring to your friends
How you light their lives so very bright
I think you should know
You should know

When you look at yourself in the mirror
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
Can you smile and say
This is me
‘Cause only when you start looking at yourself that way
Your life will be as it was meant to be

solo

When you look at yourself in the mirror
Are you proud
If you see the glimmer in your eyes
Do you smile
Do you smile

When you look at yourself in the mirror
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
Can you smile and say
This is me
‘Cause only when you start looking at yourself that way
Your life will be
As it was meant to
As it was meant to
As it was meant to be

When you look at yourself
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
When you look at yourself
Are you proud of what you’re seeing
Can you smile and say
This is me
This is me
This is me
Track Name: The Abyss
All my securities have long come and gone
It took a while before I found my resolve, but I did
I’ve been staring into the deep far too long
I should jump and take my chance

I keep on falling into the abyss
And I’ve been crashing down, down, down

As I’m soaring down into the unknown
I wonder why I never jumped before
I may have lost everything
At least now I’m free
I just hope there is some ground to land

I keep falling into the abyss
And I’ve been crashing down, down, down
I can’t remember how long
But I believe
Some day I’ll touch the ground

All my securities have long come and gone
It took a while before I found my resolve, but I did
I’ve been staring into the deep far too long
I should jump and take my chance

I keep falling into the abyss
And I’ve been crashing down, down, down
I can’t remember how long
But I believe
Some day I’ll touch the ground

I keep on falling
I keep on falling down

I keep falling into the abyss
And I’ve been crashing down, down, down
I can’t remember how long
But I believe
Today I’ll touch the ground
Track Name: I Want You Back
All of the days that passed me by
And all of the scenes that played in my life
Memories building up selectively

All of the roads I’ve ever walked
Condense to a roller-coaster ride
Remember only all the highs and lows

Should I have noticed
Younger days runs fast
Should I have noticed
The shaping of my past
The way things are going
Shouldn’t always have to come back clear

I want you back here with me
I want to have and hold you near
I want you back here to stay
I want you so bad
Yeah

All of the love I’ve shared and lost
There’s always the one who bears the cost
And always the one who’s seeing better days

Should I have noticed
Love was passing by
Should I have noticed
The wishing well ran dry
The way things are going
It shouldn’t always have to come back clear

I want you back here with me
I want to have and hold you near
I want you back here to stay
I want you so bad
Yeah

bridge

I want you back here with me
I want to have and hold you near
I want you back here to stay
I want you so bad
Yeah
