Track Name: Bound to Happen
Do you remember when we all used to hang out together?
Do you remember when we all loved each other?
What happened? You can't have it back.
I'll tell ya something, I don't want it back.
No, I don't want it back.


It was bound to happen. You can't always hold on.
It was bound to happen. You can't always be strong.
I don't know where you are today.
But I hope that you're okay, you’re okay, you’re okay.


Isn't it funny how we used to get along?
Isn't it kinda strange how it all went wrong?
What happened? You just left one day.
You went away; just go away, you're gone today.


It was bound to happen. You can't always hold on.
It was bound to happen. You can't always be strong.
I don't know where you are today.
But I hope that you're okay, you’re okay, you’re okay.


And when you feel like you've had enough,
And when you're ready to give it all up.
What happened? We were happier at nineteen.
What made us turn so mean?


It was bound to happen. You can't always hold on.
It was bound to happen. You can't always be strong.
I don't know where you are today.
But I hope that you're okay, you’re okay, you’re okay.
Track Name: Breathe
I’m so overcome with emotion
when it comes to the thoughts of everyone.
I see all your faces sing this song,
and I knew it was right all along.


And I can breathe again.
I believe again.
Oh my dear friends.


I don’t know if I’m ready for this to take it all in.
It came so suddenly and I don’t know if I’m ready.
Save me, save me, I’m praying out loud.
Save me, I will save me, I’m praying out loud.


And I can breathe again.
I believe again.
Oh my dear friends.


So stay with me, stay beside me, never leave me, guide me.
So stay with me, stay beside me, never leave me, guide me.
Save me, save me, I’m praying out loud.
And I knew it was right all along.


And I can breathe again.
I believe again.
Oh my dear friends.
And I can breathe again.
I believe again.
Oh my dear friends.
Track Name: Let Go
You walk on by
How long until you realize
What you left behind?
You left me behind.


Yeah, yeah, yeah


And I want to know
How long I'll hold on,
How long I'll be alone.


I know, I'll be strong.
I know, I can't hold on to you.
I've gotta let go, gotta let go, let go, let go.
Gotta move on from everything I know, I know.


Yeah, yeah, yeah


And it's so unusual for me
Not to be asking
Where you are? Who you have seen?
Who are you and where have you been?


I know, I'll be strong.
I know, I can't hold on to you.
I've gotta let go, gotta let go, let go, let go.
Gotta move on from everything I know, I know.


And it can be so difficult,
But it can be so rewarding
Just to let go, let go
From everything holding you down.
You can never hold me down.


I know, I'll be strong.
I know, I can't hold on to you.
I've gotta let go, gotta let go, let go, let go.
Gotta move on from everything I know.
I know, let go.
I know, let go.
I know I'll be strong, but I got to move on.
Let go
I've let go.
Track Name: Never Gonna Be the One
Your words are poison
Taste so sweet but burn me up inside.
Make me feel something,
Make me feel everything but right.


This little game you play has got to end
It's time to be real, not pretend.


'Cause I'm giving up, I'm giving up on you
And everything, everything you do.
I'm no longer your fool.
You can't play this game, because I'm done.
You're never gonna be the one.
No one left for you to duel.
'Cause I'm forgetting you, I'm forgettin'
I'm forgettin', I'm forgetting you.


I see you walk up to them
Say what makes 'em feel first rate.
Then you walk away
And watch as they disintegrate.


Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.


You gave me butterflies
With every look we shared.
But now they've flown away.
I guess you never really cared.


This little game you play has got to end
It's time to be real, not pretend.


'Cause I'm giving up, I'm giving up on you
And everything, everything you do.
I'm no longer your fool.
You can't play this game, because I'm done.
You're never gonna be the one.
No one left for you to duel.
'Cause I'm forgetting you, I'm forgettin'
I'm forgettin', I'm forgetting you.


Everyday
You like to play
The same game.
Must be hard
To be so lame.
It makes you go insane.


'Cause I'm giving up, I'm giving up on you
And everything, everything you do.
I'm no longer your fool.
You can't play this game, because I'm done.
You're never gonna be the one.
No one left for you to duel.
'Cause I'm giving up, I'm giving up on you
And everything, everything you do.
I'm no longer your fool.
You can't play this game, because I'm done.
You're never gonna be the one.
No one left for you to duel.
'Cause I'm forgetting you, I'm forgettin'.
I'm forgettin', I'm forgettin'.
I'm forgettin', I'm forgetting you.
Track Name: Secret
I've got a secret, a little secret
And it's time for you to know.
I'm a hopeless romantic, I know what to do
It should just be me and you.


I haven't seen you in a while, I miss your smile
After we said hello.
Don't want to come on to strong, but it's been far too long
Since I told you how I feel.


And I want you to know, I want you to know
I meant every word after hello.
And I want you to see, I want you to see
Darling it's always been you and me.


Look all around us, no one's moving
'Cause when I'm with you the world stands still.
You take my breath away. You take my breath away.
You take my, take my, take my, take my
You take my breath away.


And I want you to know, I want you to know
I meant every word after hello.
And I want you to see, I want you to see
Darling it's always been you and me.
And I want you to know, I want you to know
I'll give it my heart and my soul.
And I want you to see, I want you to see
Darling it's always been you and me.


I've got a secret, a little secret
And it's time for you to know.
I'm a hopeless romantic, I know what to do
So just say "yes" to me and you.
Track Name: This Is the New Year
Three hundred and sixty five days ago,
What were you thinking?
Did you have a resolution
Or some kind of solution
To all the troubles that you've been through?
It's okay, I do it too.


Counting down the days.
Hours to minutes, into seconds.
Has anything changed for you?
Does it feel different now?
Or is it still the same?
Just a different day.


This is the new year.
This is the new year.
So open up your eyes and let your heart sing.
Take it all in the new year.


Look all around you.
See all the smiling faces.
Dance and sing and laugh out loud.
Drink up the champagne.
Cheer and toast to all the things
That make you smile.


This is the new year.
This is the new year.
So open up your eyes and let your heart sing.
Take it all in the new year.


And even though last year wasn't the best
We'll make the most of the rest of the years.
And maybe you didn't think we'd make it
But we're all still here, in the new year.
Track Name: Once Again
Once again, here I am, wondering to myself,
"What the hell, is wrong?"
And it seems when I try, nothing goes right,
The raging story of my life.


No one cares if I'm here, just a shadow in the dark,
Another face in the crowd,
Of many lost souls, with nowhere to go,
No ambition to keep trying.


What is your reason to keep trying?
What is your reason to keep living?
What is the point of everything?
I tried to tell you what was wrong,
But you never listened.


Here I sit in this crowd of people called my friends,
But no one ever listens.
So I run away with these tears in my eyes,
No one ever even notices.


What is your reason to keep trying?
What is your reason to keep living?
What is the point of everything?
I tried to tell you what was wrong,
But you never listened.


I try so hard not to cry when I think of you.
I wonder when I'll be happy
Once again, here I am, all alone.


What is your reason to keep trying?
What is your reason to keep living?
What is the point of everything?
I tried to tell you what was wrong.
What is your reason to keep trying?
What is your reason to keep living?
What is the point of everything?
I tried to tell you what was wrong.
Track Name: Perfect
I'm not perfect
And neither are you.
I can live with that fact.
But can you?


I believed in you
When you did not believe in me too.


You have everything
That everyone dreams of.
Yet you are so unwilling
To share the love.


I believed in you
When you did not believe in me too.
And if you say I'm not good enough, that I will never make it.
Well I won't believe you.


This is the moment when you realize
Everything given to you now you despise.
Your entirety is a lie
One day you'll wake up wondering, "why"?


I believed in you
When you did not believe in me too.
And if you say I'm not good enough, that I will never make it.
Well I won't believe you.
No I won't believe you.
No I don't believe you.
Track Name: Star
You're scared to death,
To get up on that stage.
You're terrified,
To hear what they might say.


But tonight, tonight.


Tonight you're a star
You're gonna be alright.
Tonight you're a star
You'll shine through the night.
It doesn't matter what they say
You're gonna be okay.
You're a star.


Close your eyes
Take a deep breath in.
You're paralyzed
But find the strength within.


'Cause tonight, tonight.


Tonight you're a star
You're gonna be alright.
Tonight you're a star
You'll shine through the night.
It doesn't matter what they say
You're gonna be okay.
You're a star.


So look out and see the crowd.
Hearing them scream and shout.
Waiting to hear you speak out loud.
So shine, shine, shine.


Tonight you're a star
You're gonna be alright.
Tonight you're a star
You'll shine through the night.
It doesn't matter what they say
You're gonna be okay.
Tonight you're a star
You're gonna be alright.
Tonight you're a star
You'll shine through the night.
It doesn't matter what they say
You're gonna be okay.
You're a star.


No longer terrified
Not scared to death.
Nor paralyzed
You haven't lost your breath.
Track Name: Nothing More
I could never bend any of your pages
Because I would hate to crease something written so perfectly.
I could go on forever always reading
Everything that comes out of your perfect mind.


I would never ask for anything more.
So why would I ask for anything more?
Please don’t ask me for anything more
‘Cause there’s so much in store that you have not seen before.


You have such an ability to
Talk about everything you should
And you have such a way of saying
All the little things I wish I could.


I would never ask for anything more.
So why would I ask for anything more?
Please don’t ask me for anything more
‘Cause there’s so much in store that you have not seen before.


If I asked you to stay true, would you?
If I ask you to stay by my side, would you?
I say believe, and I’ll do anything for you.
Tell me everything all the time.
I say believe, and I’ll be anything for you.
We’ll be just fine. We’ll be just fine.


I would never ask for anything more.
So why would I ask for anything more?
Please don’t ask me for anything more
‘Cause there’s so much in store that you have not seen before.


Yeah I’ve had my share of sorrow and anguish
But that’s not what it’s about this time.
