Track Name: Discovered
I discovered a love, discovered a love I can't ignore
A powerful love, yeah, worth waiting for

All this time I've been waiting very patiently
But I was told again and again, "hurry up," my friend
It felt like people thought that there was something wrong with me
But it wasn't till I met you I was ready

CHORUS
I discovered a love, discovered a love I can't ignore
A powerful love, yeah, worth waiting for
I discovered a love, discovered a love that can endure
I finally found a love worth fighting for

I wondered when I'd find someone who could share my life
I was holding out for the best and lasting happiness
I didn't want to settle for a consolation prize
Oh, you quickly won me over, took me by surprise

CHORUS

This feeling has completely taken over me
It began when passion deep inside me stirred
You see I've made the greatest discovery
And it's something I wanna tell the world
Track Name: Stronger Than You
You think that you're so clever
With every compliment
You're pretty confident
And with your sleight of hand
You think that you've gained total command
I hate to spoil your appetite
I'm not fooled by your hype
I know something's not right
You try to show off your best
Others might be impressed
You don't stand up to my test

CHORUS
See I pieced together the clues
Cuz I'm smarter than you, smarter than you
I won't give in to the charm that you ooze
Cuz I'm stronger than you, stronger than you

You tried to isolate me
In a different town
So you could wear me down
You offered words of comfort
To lower my guard with the emotional card
You prey on my desire
You do what is required
To make me play with fire
You may be very surprised
That I have survived
All the things that you've tried
Track Name: Elegant
You come on over on a Saturday night
I got chills and a fever, not feeling all right
My head is spinning, I've got no appetite
Got no plan, got no cure
Just want to stay out of sight
You take my hand I feel energized
My spirits have been revived
You have a way of soothing my soul
And making symptoms subside

CHORUS
You make me feel, you makin’ me feel
You make me feel so elegant, elegant, elegant

You lean in to place a kiss on my cheek
Though my body is aching, I'm feeling so weak
Can barely breathe and I struggle to speak
Face is red, hair's a mess and I look like a freak
You take my hand I feel energized
My spirits have been revived
You have a way of soothing my soul
And making symptoms subside

You chase away the gloom
When you enter into the room
I'm not as tired, the mood feels lighter
My confidence renewed
Track Name: The First Day
Stepping out of the shadows
Feel the sunlight as the wind blows
A burden lifted off your shoulders
Is a lesson learned as you get older
You thought this day would never come
Now the journey's just begun, just begun

CHORUS
Today is the first day of the rest of your life
Don't waste anytime or throw it away
Today is the first day of the rest of your life
I hope you'll listen to what I say

Other days will be momentous
The possibilities are endless
What lies ahead will be even better
Than what you left behind forever
Time to take what you've been told
And discover this new road, this new road

CHORUS

As for what the future holds
Figure it out as you go, only God knows
There will be twists and turns in store
You were meant for so much more
Than what you'd been living for
Track Name: I Feel Alive
I feel like I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I'm alive, I'm alive, I feel alive
I know I can reach new heights
Go beyond what others try
I'm alive, I'm alive, I feel alive

I'm gonna cross the oceans
Scale the highest mountains
Round and round and round the world I'll go
I'll chase lightning and thunder
Discover the 8th Wonder
Where I finally stop nobody knows
Don't like the feeling of going nowhere
I've got a bigger destiny
However long it takes I'll get there
Nothing's gonna be stopping me

CHORUS

I'll start a celebration
Ignite a new sensation
Something everybody will want to see
What makes this so exciting?
A new dawn is arising
Now that I am finally free
Don't like the feeling of going nowhere
I've got a bigger destiny
However long it takes I'll get there
Nothing's gonna be stopping me
Track Name: Wonder Woman
Do you ever wanna be
More than what others see?
Not just someone who is average, ordinary
A person who is brave and would not hesitate
To take on any dangerous enemy
It doesn't have to be that hard
To uncover who you really are

CHORUS
If I was your Wonder Woman,
you could be my Superman
Joining forces to be stronger
Making news across the land
If I was your Wonder Woman
and you were my Superman
We could save this world together
Walking hand in hand

Imagine all that you could do
If you revealed this side of you
Adventurous, remarkable, extraordinary
And in the blink of an eye
You could soar above the sky
And discover new abilities
Don't be afraid of the unknown
You don't have to do it all alone

CHORUS

We'll fight for truth and justice
Shine a light into the darkness
Helping those in need wherever we go
Whoever stands against us
Won't be able to defeat us
'Cuz united we are superheroes
Track Name: Love Me Any Way
Sometimes I wonder what life would be
without you here believing in me
Would I have courage to try
the near impossible things that I pushed aside?
And every time I feel doubts creeping in
You tell me to shut them all out
When I start thinking I'm not good enough
You tell me that I make you proud

CHORUS
You love me when I have a bad day
When I don't want to look in the mirror
Even though I've made a ton of mistakes
And I'm not on my best behavior
You love me any way, you love me any way

I don't know how you put up with me
as I deal with my insecurity
When I can't find the right words
to describe how I feel or how much I hurt
And every time I feel pressure is on,
You tell me it's okay to breathe
And when I think something's missing in me,
You offer me all that I need

CHORUS

In your arms, I feel secure
No matter what's at stake, my worries fade away
When you're around, I feel calmer somehow
You just look at me and put me at ease
Track Name: Paralyzed
Fear of the unknown, of the things unseen
Of being left alone or caught somewhere in between
Don't wanna finish last, failure haunting me
Life passing by too fast, not being all that I could be
Fighting to move on
Facing fears until they're gone

CHORUS
I no longer wanna be paralyzed, paralyzed
I refuse to be paralyzed, paralyzed

Unsure of what is real, what is make believe
Forgetting how to feel, my own worst enemy
A burden on my back, a shadow over me
Frozen in my tracks, determined to break free
The will to overcome
And accomplish everything not done

CHORUS

Watching, waiting, hesitating, feeling trapped inside
Stirring, breaking, love is waiting to cast fear aside
Track Name: Under the Lights
Under the lights tonight
Step to the beat now, baby
Take over the floor
The spotlight is yours
No time to slow down or waste it
Under the lights (3x)

Pressure's taken over
And your heart's grown colder
You're banging your head against the wall
Having a hard time standing tall
You want something lasting
You see your moment is passing by
So why not give it another try?

CHORUS

Get out of the corner
Just keep moving forward
Looking to finally take a chance
Hoping for more than just one dance
Your confidence keeps growing
Shake off everything holding you back
Relax you're heading down the right track
Track Name: Change
You're tellin' me that you want a change of scenery
Cuz you've spent the past few years livin' in misery
You seem to be puttin' blame on everybody but yourself
And now you wanna walk in the shoes of somebody else

CHORUS
You can change your name, the color of your hair
Change your face, all the clothes you wear
But it won't change what you're trying to hide
It won't change who you are inside
You can change your job, your house and your car
But it won't stop until you change your heart
It won't change what you're trying to hide
It won't change who you are inside

You think you can fix your problems oh so easily
Your solution won't make them disappear magically
No matter how many times you wanna try something new
You need to make a bigger change than just what you do

CHORUS

You can change the time, change the place
But all you get's a temporary escape
Fill your mind with truth instead
Of all the lies that are running through your head
Track Name: Shattered
I'm picking up the pieces
Picking up the pieces
That are shattered, shattered
I'm mending every part of me
Mending every part of me
That's shattered, shattered

Did my best, did my best to follow my heart
But it led me to travel down the wrong road
What do you do when your world falls apart
And you're left out in the cold?
Had to run, had to run from the source of the pain
Tried to stop my whole life from spiraling down
How do you keep from going insane
When your dreams lay on the ground?

CHORUS

Had to learn, had to learn to dry up my tears
Had to leave regret and bitterness behind
How long till I conquer all of my fears
And restore my peace of mind?
Track Name: Swaying
When you walked into the room
My eyes, they turned to you
Your smile, your style
Truly fascinating
Not just the clothes you wear
Or how you slick your hair
So fine, you shine
I like the way you’re swaying

There's nobody else that can compare
You sway my heart with your special flair

You have my interest piqued
With every word you speak
Your charm, so warm
Very captivating
You gently take my hand
And pull me close to dance
Your moves, so smooth
And now we're really swaying

There's nobody else that can compare
You sway my heart with your special flair
