Track Name: Crazy World
She was a sidekick
she was a lonely girl
Now she's all mixed up, in a mixed up world
She tried to fit in with those other girls
Now she's stuck in, this crazy world

He was a loner he was a quiet guy
They always made fun of the guy who's shy
But he gave in to be like them
Now he's stuck in this crazy world

They're up they're down they're runnin' around
It's a crazy world
It's false it's true so what do you do?
It's a crazy world
They changed themselves so they could be in this crazy world
Why pretend to fit in this crazy world?

I took a step back and thought to myself
Why should I try to be somebody else?
I have to live in my own skin
So why pretend, pretend to fit in?

Well they were fed up with the games they played.
And they were tired of the things they'd say
So they made a pact to be themselves
Now they're stuck in this crazy world, yeah

They're up they're down they're runnin' around
It's a crazy world
It's false it's true so what do you do?
It's a crazy world
They stayed themselves so they could be in this crazy world

They're up they're down they're runnin' around
It's a crazy world
It's false it's true so what do you do?
It's a crazy world
They stayed themselves so they could be in this crazy world
Why pretend to fit in this crazy world?

Don't pretend to fit in Why pretend to fit in? Don't pretend to fit in this crazy world
Track Name: You're a Mystery
Days have gone past but here you are still
You've push me too far, I've had no time to heal
It's just a charade, that game you played
Are we real or just a masquerade

Can I have this dance?
Who's behind this mask?
You're a mystery in disguise
You've been telling me so many lies
To be or not to be that's the question now
Am I anything at all? I curtsy and you bow

What aren't you telling me? what is to hide?
What are you really like? what is inside?
I feel like the puzzle piece that doesn't fit in
I lose and I lose there's no room to win

Can I have this dance?
Who's behind this mask?
You're a mystery in disguise
You've been telling me so many lies
To be or not to be that's the question now
Am I anything at all? I curtsy and you bow

I dreamt that everything would go like we planned
And that together we would stand hand in hand
I wished upon your star
Oh, I didn't plan on fallin' so hard

Can I have this dance?
Who's behind this mask?
You're a mystery in disguise
You've been telling me so many lies
To be or not to be we're the question now
Am I anything at all?
Who's behind this mask
You're a mystery to me
I curtsy and you bow, I curtsy and you bow
Track Name: Change Is Coming
The winds of change are blowin' past
And they cut me, like shards of glass
My life is gonna be turned upside down
And I'm losing my way, way too fast

You rub me the wrong way
Like wearing a sandpaper coat
It's all a lie, I'm saying good-bye
And the tears, they well up, in my throat

Ch change is coming
Ch change is coming, coming yeah
I see it coming down the track
Ch change is coming
Ch change is coming, coming yeah
Even though I'm moving forward
I keep on looking back

I'll fall to pieces if this is a mistake
'Cause it's staring me, right in the face
If I let go, oh yes I know
I'll disappear without a trace

Ch change is coming
Ch change is coming, coming yeah
I see it coming down the track
Ch change is coming
Ch change is coming, coming yeah
Even though I'm moving forward
I keep on looking back

The other side of change ain't so bad
If you get past all the pain
And right now I'm fighting with myself
From going against the grain
And even though it's strange

Ch change is coming
Ch change is coming, coming yeah
I see it coming down the track
Ch change is coming
Ch change is coming, coming yeah
Even though I'm moving forward
I keep on looking back
Track Name: Superstar
Staring at the stars from my small town space
One road that leads to nowhere, but I've got a dream to chase

Everybody's got a dream
Ohhh
my dream is to sing
Yeahhh Oh Yeah

I wanna be a superstar, ridin' round in my fancy car
I wanna be on the radio, singin' for the world you know
I say I wanna be a superstar, ridin' round in my fancy car
I wanna be on the radio, singin' for, singin' for the world you know

Yeahhh

I'm gettin' ready to fly, I'm ready to soar 'cause I want this now more than ever before
I feel so free when I'm on this stage, I'm on the next level and I'm turning the page

Everybody's got a dream and a song to sing
watch me, I can do anything...

Oh Yeah

I'm gonna be a superstar, ridin' round in my fancy car
I'm gonna be on the radio, singin' for the world you know
I say I'm gonna be a superstar, ridin' round in my fancy car
I'm gonna be on the radio, singin' for, singin' for the world you know

I'm not afraid to say it
I'm not afraid to say it
I'm gonna go out with a bang bang bang

I'm gonna be a superstar, ridin' round in my fancy car
I'm gonna be on the radio, singin' for the world you know
I say I'm gonna be superstar, baby you'll watch me go far
Singin' up in the studio, baby the whole world will know

Yeahh Yeah Ohh ohh
Track Name: Can We Figure It Out
Lately, I've been thinking 'bout our past
And how you used to love me
And I'm wondering if you still love me today?
All I'm sayin' is...

If I were standing in the same place as yesterday
Would you love me the same way?
If I were standing in the same place as yesterday
I'd figure it out

I know I've changed and so have you in so many ways
But why can't we stand in the same place

If I were standing in the same place as yesterday
Would you love me the same way?
If I were standing in the same place as yesterday
I'd figure it out

Is is wrong to think that we might be the way we were
Are you still him? Am I still her?
I need to know sooner or later so I can move on with my life
Why is it taking so long baby- to figure out your life?

If I were standing in the same place as yesterday
Would you love me the same way?
If I were standing in the same place as yesterday
I'd figure it out

Can we figure it out?
I need to figure it out
Can we figure it out?
I need to figure it out, can we figure it out?
Can we figure it out?
I need to figure it out
I need to figure it out.
Track Name: The Only One
Paint me a sky of yellow and blue
Let's fly high in a hot air balloon
I get you and you understand me
You make me laugh when we disagree
We'll be together as the years fly by
'Cause you carry my secrets and you open my eyes

You're the only one
The only one who truly understands what I'm going through, you
You're the only one who helps me know what to do
The only one

Best friends like us, we're attached at the heart
If we live close or if we live far apart
Let's make a promise, no let's make a dare
We'll do a secret handshake and then pinkie swear
Nothing's ever gonna come between us two
I guess you're stuck with me, it's true

You're the only one
The only one who truly understands what I'm going through, you
You're the only one who helps me know what to do
The only one

It's been so long since I've seen your face
I wonder if you feel the same way
Your voice it echos in my mind
And I remember all those good times
When we were little girls

You're the only one
The only one who truly understands what I'm going through, you
You're the only one who helps me know what to do
The only one
Track Name: That's Who I Am
I'm lookin' at all these faces
I'm dreamin' of going places
They say I should just give up
No, No, No

They say that I am crazy
I say, you're just too lazy
Get up and do something new
Oh, Oh, Oh

Life ain't gonna come knocking at your door,
You've got to make something happen, you've got to do something more

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

I'm spreading my wings, to fly
Looking for my place, in the sky
They say that I want to much
No, No, No

They think I'm just a child
Keep hatin' on my style
Get up and do something true
Oh, Oh, Oh

Life ain't gonna come knocking at your door,
You've got to make it happen, you've got to do something more

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh. ah Yeah. Yeah. Oh

That's who I am

I don't wanna cry myself to sleep anymore
I don't wanna say my prayers at night and wonder what it's all for
I wanna hold my head up high
As I take a stand
Oh I wanna have a plan
Cause That's who I am!

Not gonna give up, that's who am
Not gonna give up, oh if I can
Not gonna give up, that's my plan
Not gonna give up, that's who I am

Not gonna give up, that's who am
Not gonna give up, oh if I can
Not gonna give up, that's my plan
Not gonna give up, that's who I am
Track Name: Whispers
Sitting all alone, waiting for you my dear
Wishing, I was anywhere but here
Silence fills the air
Wishing, that I really didn't care
Voices surround me
Telling me something
That I'm nothing

Whispers fill my ears
My eyes are filled with salty tears
Why does the world feel so dead tonight
It feels like my heart and my mind are having a fight
Whispers

Watching you walk away, then you disappear
My heart is filled with doubt a dream that's filled with fear
No one seems to see
I'm angry my mind's played tricks on me
Voices surround me
Telling me "give up"
Not good enough

Whispers fill my ears
My eyes are filled with salty tears
Why does the world feel so dead tonight
It feels like my heart and my mind are having a fight

Fallin' down a rabbit hole
Dark and scary Alice knows
I let those words run away with me
And they may set me free
But until then...

Whispers fill my ears
My eyes are filled with salty tears
Why does the world feel so dead tonight
It feels like my heart and my mind are having a fight
Whispers
Track Name: Lexi's Lullaby
Starlight shining so bright
Peeking through the curtains to say
"Good-night" said the little one to the right
"Sleep tight" said the little one
Up so so high
Then the biggest star in sight
Said to me "don't let the bedbugs bite"
"Sweet child won't you go to sleep tonight"
That's what you'd say to me
Don't cry all the lights are gleaming in your eyes
And I'd be relieved to see your sweet smile smiling back at me

And then I'd pray that we'd be forever
And I think I'll see you in my dreams
Darlin' baby please don't cry
Cause its Lexi's lullaby

Lexi's lullaby
Sweet child
Won't you go to sleep tonight
