Track Name: Boredinary
This is so ordinary
I get so boredinary
And don't you find it scary
We do the same thing, do the same thing every day
This is so ordinary
And I don't mean to be contrary
But don't you find it scary
We do the same thing, do the same thing every day

I need a little adventure
I don't want to grow old like this
Sometimes you've got to face some danger
Sometimes you gotta take some risks

Maybe I could eat a big steak for breakfast and have some cake for dinner
Maybe if I build a house on a mountainside that would make me a winner
Maybe if I build a rocket ship and take people hiking on mars
Maybe if I ride a skateboard to school instead of driving a boring old car


Maybe take notice of the kid who's sitting all alone in the back of the room
Maybe work up the courage to let go of being comfortable, safe inside your little bubble
It's worth it to step outside your comfort zone to take care of the lonely
Because life will always get so stale and pale when you are the one and only
Track Name: Walk Like Me
walk through the halls and I wonder what I’m doing here
does my voice even make a sound?
I get the feeling in my gut that I might be in a rut
but I can get through the day if I keep my head down
so many questions in my mind as I gaze at their eyes
do they see me like I see them
I get the feeling in my mind that we might be a little blind
but I can get through the day if I keep my head down


is it the way I comb my hair, or is it the clothes I wear
are they staring back at me?
is it the funny way I talk, or the odd way i walk
oh no i thought it too much and now I can’t remember

How to put one foot in front of the other
I learned it long ago from my father and my mother
but somehow it seems that I’ve forgotten what it means to walk like me

walk through the mall and I wonder what we’re doing here
can anyone hear the sound of their thoughts?
It gets drowned out by the music and the posters
and somehow we forget all the beauty that we’ve got
We look around and look around and want to be like what we see
but there’s no way to live up to it
overthinking every move and every pose and every groove
and I think it’s time we take a look at where we're at

cuz I don’t care how you comb your hair
And I don’t care about the brand of the clothes that you wear
I don't care about the color of your hair
I don't care about the brand of the clothes that you wear

I don't care

We've got to put one foot in front of the other
I learned it long ago from my father and my mother
but somehow it seems that I’ve forgotten what it means to walk like me
How to put one foot in front of the other
Maybe we could learn again if we just look at each other
And somehow be okay with with what i look like everyday when i walk like me
How to put one foot in front of the other
I learned it long ago from my father and my mother
but somehow it seems that I’ve forgotten what it means to walk like me
How to put one foot in front of the other
Maybe we could learn again if we just(smile) at each other
And somehow be okay with with what it means to walk like me
Track Name: Daydreamer
Woke up this morning, sort of fell out of bed
I had a dream still swimming all around inside my head
I was a superhero rockstar with flamethrowing arms
And everybody was my buddy and I saved the world from harm
But reality hits me like a train moving fast
It’s time to get dressed don’t be a mess you gotta get on track
but there’s this tingle in my fingers and it just won’t stop
Sometimes the dreams inside my mind can overwhelm me till I drop

I’ve been made to bring life to everything I see
I’ve been made to give the world a thrill by being me


Woke up this morning with a song in my head
It was a dreamy little tune that swam around in my bed
A little whistle and a giggle and my heart gets so light
I walk outside and lift my arms up to the sky and feel the sunlight
Then reality hits that there’s a lot of life to live
I get to run around and shake the ground I’ve got something to give
Cuz there’s this tingle in my fingers and it just won’t stop
I’m gonna make these dreams reality or else I’m gonna pop

I’ve been made to bring life and love to everything I see
I’ve been made to give the world a thrill by being everything I’m made to be

daydreamer won’t you put your feet back on the ground
we’ve got so much left to do today
but it don’t mean that we don’t play
daydreamer won’t you put your feet back on the ground
but don’t you put your heart away
imagination turns work into play
Track Name: Hold On Tight
Little girl look at me with your eyes so
wonderful and beautiful - mystical and magical
thoughts flood my heart and it tears me apart
when see those eyes look down
Sometimes I get so confused when I try to read you
Confusing and amazing, like staring at the blazing
Sun with my bare eyes it makes me wanna cry
When I see those eyes look down

Dad look at me can you see what youAre you too caught up in figuring all of this
Out come the words and they may sound absurd
But can you hear what’s on my mind
I know that you want to have something to say
But it's gets so confusing and not at all amusing
I know you wanna fix it and make it go away
But can your heart try to listen to mine

Turn on your heart like you're turning on the radio
Crank it up loud like a song that we all know
You don't have to fear I just need to know you hear me
You don't have to fix it I just want you near me
Give me your heart and give me your eyes you know I want to be by your side
as we hold on tight for a wild and crazy ride

Hey there you know it's hard not to meddle
I want you to be OK you know I love to save the day
I wanna get to the part where I say what's on my heart
But then I see your eyes look down

It's not that I don't want to hear what you got
But it's not the right time when I'm out of my mind
my heart is racing and I'm shouting and pacing
And you see my eyes fall down

Put your hand on my shoulder and be still
I'll come around and look to you
When I think the world is falling apart be still
you know I'll come around and look to you
When I look up and see that peaceful look in your eye
I'll come around and look to you
When I see that you know that it's gonna be alright
you know I'll come around and look to you
Track Name: Moonlight Dance
The sun is going down, feel the magic all around you
grab a hand and run outside, don’t miss it
turn off all the porch lights - go on and head into the woods
let your eyes and ears adjust to see things like you should

And if you get that feeling in your chest
the pitter patter of fear
it’s okay little one, you don’t have to be afraid
it just means that they are near

Now go out and watch the moonrise - see the fireflies
like a thousand fairies putting on a show
But be so still and quiet, try not to make a sound
listen to your wind blow, feel your feet against the ground

And if you get that feeling in your chest
the pitter patter of fear
it’s okay little one, you don’t have to be afraid
it just means that they are near

Hear the it in the crackle of the leaves
life is on the move tonight
Creatures of all sizes in the trees
they will dance until the morning light
Singing in a living harmony
life is in the air tonight
Hear it sing it’s song for you and me
life is on the move tonight

Breathe in deep the sweetness of the breeze
the leaves, the giving, living trees
as they let out a breath to watch you grow
A million hidden eyes surround
feel the thrill of being part of it
join in with the dance that is the life of all creation
Track Name: Wild
the wind in my hair blows wild
just like my mind, just like my heart
the smell of the woods it calls to me
I’m listening, I’m listening
a sword in one hand shield in the other
i’m ready, I’m ready to run
the sound of the trees they call to me
I’m listening, I’m listening

grass in between my toes
the cool of the morning, an idea forming
the sound of a dragon calls to me
are you listening, are you listening
feel it rumbling now
it’s coming, are you ready
hear it roaring, see the fire in the sky
Are you listening, Can you hear it screaming

their roar can shake your bones
are you listening, can you hear it?
their breath can burn our homes
do you feel it? Can you feel the heat
Look them straight in the eye
Call to them, grab the horns
Just because we’re scared doesn’t mean we run
call the dragon, grab it’s horns

FLY little one - chase that dragon to the sun
let the wind blow through your wild head of hair
hold on tight as we ride the wind together
we will fly that beast into the cold night air
Track Name: More Than Just
I am more than glamour
I am more than beauty
I am more than pretty skin
I am here within

I know who I am
and I know where I stand
I know who I am
it was love that made these hands

Put me to the test
Give me a challenge
that’s more than being pretty for you
Let me use my mind
Let me work with my hands
and do more than be pretty for you

We are more than products
More than your target audience
We are more than playthings
We are here within

We know who we are
And we know where we stand
We know who we are
it was love that made these hands

Put me to the test
Give me a challenge
That's more than being pretty for you
Let me use my mind
Let me work with my hands
And do more than be pretty for you
Track Name: Help
Sometimes I walk into a room full of people
And I feel so alone
It's amazing you can spend so much time inside your skin
And never ever feel at home
Why do I see the world this way?
Will it feel like this every single day
For the rest of my life?
Will it ever feel alright

Sometimes I fall into a crowd full of people
And I feel so alone
It's amazing you can spend so much time with all your friends
And never ever feel at home
Why do I see the world this way?
Will it feel like this every single day
For the rest of my life?
Will it ever feel alright

Please don’t tell me what to feel
Please take the time to lead me back to what is real
Because it’s not always alright
Isn’t that right?

don’t grin and tell me to turn my frown upside down
don’t tell me everything will be alright
take my hand and
help me stand
as the wind and the waves and the rain beat down
and we will sing

Stay with me
till I can see
till I have words to sing
be with me
Track Name: Crazy Idea
I’ve got this crazy idea that I could change the world
If only i would care about you as much as I care about me
If you look out for me, and I look out for you
Then I don’t think there’s anything that we can’t get through

Grownups like to talk about the ways they can fix it all
but sometimes little ones just know the best
if we convince our friends to take some to try this
I believe this plan can pass the test

We’ve got this crazy idea that we can change the world
If only I would care about you as much as I care about me
If you look out for me, and I look out for you
Then I don’t think that there’s anything we can’t get through

Grownups like to talk about the ways they can make things right
but sometimes little ones have better sight
if we convince our friends to take some to try
I think that we all could understand why

treat your friends like you want to be treated
treat your enemies the same
This is how all the darkness is defeated
And the world will never ever be the same
Track Name: Different Like Me
I am different, And that’s okay
I want pickles on my pizza and I like it that way
I am strange, Strange as can be
The deeper that you look at me me the more of it you’ll see

You are different, and that’s okay
You like polka-dotted elephants and that’s okay
You are strange, strange as can be
The deeper that I look at you the more of it I see

If everyone looked like me there’d be nothing interesting left to see
If everybody looked like you there’d be nothing interesting left to do

I am different, and that’s alright
If it were up to me I’d eat spaghetti every night
I am fun, fun as can be
The harder that you look at me the more of it you’ll see

I am me
I’m the only me that I can be
You are you
Don’t try to be like me ‘cause I need you to be like you
We are only free if we can celebrate the difference between you and me
We are WE because you’re different like me

I can look at you and enjoy who you are
Track Name: Laugh With Me
I get these thoughts in my head every day of the week
every day of the week
I can’t get away from
Me
I’m me i’m always being me
so I’m gonna have to deal with
every little thing here
it goes up and down and round again
I’m lying on the ground
And you turn around and find me
Are you looking down at me?
Will you make fun of me?
Are you gonna ditch me?
Tell me what's next

I know it's not easy to be my friend sometimes
(I drive myself crazy)
I know my emotions don't always make much sense



So please just tell me that I stink
and go ahead and write me off because
I can’t get away from
Me
I’m me i’m always being me
so you’re gonna have to deal with
everything in my head
it goes up and down here we go again
I’m lying on the ground
And you turn around and find me
Are you looking down at me?
Will you make fun of me?
Are you gonna ditch me?
Tell me what's next

I know that I can get a bit weird sometimes
(I drive myself crazy)
But what do you do when you're embarrassed and nothing makes much sense?

Look me in the eye
Kiss these silly thoughts goodbye
Run with me… run with me



laugh with me - don’t tell me what I wanna hear
sing with me - it’s music to my ears
we can’t waste another moment on regret
right now is the only thing we have left

breathe with me - no giving into what I feel
be with me - it doesn’t mean that it is real
we all blow it and we all know it
So get up, get up, laugh it off and keep going.
Track Name: Waiting
waiting waiting
on what’s next
so much life left
I feel it in my toes
I’ve just got to know
waiting waiting
open my up eyes
soon the sun will burst into the sky
I will explode and i will fly

My heart is pounding in my chest, I’ve waited for so long
I’ve got to open up my lungs and sing this song

La-da-da-da-daaaaaa

waiting waiting
through the night
look to find the light
full of wonder
my heart is like a roaring thunder
waiting waiting
feel the fire within
running with the wind
the sun is bursting in the sky
and i will fly

My heart is pounding in my chest, I’ve waited for so long
I’ve got to open up my lungs and sing this song

what will I be?
what makes me me?
Track Name: Stardust
we are made of feelings
they wander to and fro
sometimes they lead us round and round
and up and down we go

We are made of sunlight
and through our eyes it shines
how can we ever calm back down
when it is filling up our minds

We are alive

we are made of stardust
we are made of LIFE
filled to the brim with the energy
of the maker of the day and night


When the truth is hard to find out
When the troubles seem to pile up
We are here to grow and shine out
We are here to light the night up

When the silence drowns the sound out
When the world around seems heartless
We are here to bring the songs down
We are here to shine in darkness

We are here
We are here
We are here
We are alive...
