I’ll keep going on

You thought you could end this voice
That I carry inside of me
That you could kill this dream I own
And make me who you want me to be
 
You thought you could break me down
And create a new mold of who I am
But you don’t have the power to
You don’t control this man
 
Cause i’m stronger and I push back
And you can’t break this soul
Nothing that you can do can stop me
Cause i’m on a roll
And I’ll keep going on
 
You can keep trying and trying
But i’m not backing down
So the more you push against me
The more i’ll stand my ground
 
When we find ourselves threatened
Like people want to change who we are
We find the strength we never knew we had
And something worth fighting for
 
Cause i’m stronger and I push back
And you can’t break this soul
Nothing that you can do can stop me
Cause i’m on a roll
and I’ll keep going on
 
Cause I won’t be the kind of person
Who you could change just like that
I stand my ground and I’m not afraid
to go ahead and push back
 
I know we all try to fit in
But sometimes we might lose our way
But I won’t ever let anyone make me feel
Like I have to change to fit in today
 
Cause i’m stronger and I push back
And you can’t break this soul
Nothing that you can do can stop me
Cause i’m on a roll
And I’ll keep going on
And I’ll keep going on

Let Go of the Reign

You ever meet those people
When you’re growing up
You’re just trying prove that
Who you are is good enough

Always fighting so hard
Trying to play by their rules
Doing what you can
So you dont look like a fool

But we need to quit fighting so hard
just to play their game
cause life’s so much better when
You let go of the reign

Why must we always change
Be something that were not
just to end up lost in the crowd
another one forgot

Cause when you change yourself
Just to fit into their game
You end up losing everything
just to become one so plain

So we need to quit fighting so hard
just to play their game
cause life’s so much better when
You let go of the reign

Life’s so much better
When you stop trying to fit in
Cause conformity is a game that
No one ever wins

It’s always best to stand out
instead of changing who you are
so don’t you ever let anyone
Change what your living for

So we need to quit fighting so hard
just to play their game
cause life’s so much better when
You let go of the reign

Karaoke

I’m getting up in front of the crowd
Standing in the spotlight
Singing the words on the screen
On a busy Wednesday night

The first time I got on up on that stage
My mind was racing and I was so scared
Felt my heart was beating out of my chest
And the sweat was dripping from my head

But things soon got calmer
And my heart slowed on down
The stage felt so natural to me
Like I was in my own little town

The words became easier to sing
As I sang with the melodies
The night started feeling better
Since the fun came to me with ease

Who knew i’d found myself
A place where I would belong
I never thought I could be here
Who knew I was this strong

What was once filled with fear
Has become something more
The music has become a part of me
Gives me strength I was looking for

The Wrong Role

Even when I know I belong on stage
Why am I afraid of the part I play
The role I feel I was given
Doesn’t reflect what I want to say

It’s like I’m playing the wrong role
And I’m afraid to state the fact
Instead I stand in silence
And listen to how I should act

But these lines aren’t meant for me
I’ve been slightly miscast
So it’s time for me to speak up
Tell them of the mixup at long last

Only then will I feel at home
In the role I was meant for
Will they understand that
I was meant for something more

Heartstrings

All through our life
We have people telling us how to be
What does love mean to us
And how to act in society

But how can you live your life
When you can’t trust in love tonight
How could you not be who you are
Whenever who you are feels right

When people keep telling you
What you should say and who you love
What’s the point of living when
They tell you what you’re living for

You should be the only one
That has a say in how you feel
Cause you’re the only one that can tell
What in your life feel’s real

Cause it’s your own life you’re living
So they can’t tell you how to act
You’ve got to stand up to them
Trust the one’s that have your back

When it comes to how you love
Your heart’s the only one who makes the rules
It’s all about how you feel
And the heartstring’s that it pulls

Heads or Tails

You ever feel like what they see
Is a different side in society
Like it’s two sides of the same ole coin
But one side never sees the light of day

When will they get to see
Will they ever get to see the change
It’s time for me to toss it up to chance
Time to prove i’m not so strange

You’ve been reading heads for so long
But now its time to catch the tail
Will you love what you see
Even If I try and fail

We always try to show what they want
Never leaving it up to chance
Always scared of what they see
Unsure if they’ll appreciate who we are

Heads or tails time to toss it up
Never knowing how it will land
Let’s take a chance and we shall see
If you can love who I am

Sleepwalker

So many people going through life
Every week just like the last
Will my life get any better this
How is it passing by so fast

We try so hard to find ourselves
But we’re afraid to take the risk
A risk that could change it all
No matter how hard we wish

What’s the point of wishing
For everything to change
When you become so scared to see
Your whole life rearranged

A part of you loves your life
Exactly how it is
While the other is hoping one day
It will become much more then this

We all live in our own small worlds
But we are so afraid that they will break
We live ourself as dreamers
With dreams we’re afraid to make

One day the dreamers will have to wake
Cause you can only dream so long
It’s time for reality to sink in
Are you ready to be strong

So which part will you play
When you awake from your nap
Are you going to be the sleepwalker
Or the one dreams ready to grab
