Track Name: The Girl I Wanna Be
I got a picture, of the girl I wanna be
Dancing round inside my head
I haven’t met her, she’s just a better brighter me
But I ended up like this instead
Wishing I was someone else
Dreaming of a better self

The girl I wanna be doesn’t have a worry in the world
She smiles at almost everyone she sees
And I know all my clothes would look better on her
She’d write this song much better than me
Oh she knows, she holds the world in her hand
Oh she knows, that she’s brave enough to take a stand

The girl I wanna be doesn’t eat everything she sees
Or drink till she says things she doesn’t mean
Left to her own devices she won’t screw up everything
Or lose it in a crowd and make a scene
She’ll never hit thirty, she’ll never slow down
She’s comfortable in her own perfect skin
She’ll never feel dirty or wear this worried frown
She’s pure both on the outside and within
She’s not wishing she was someone else
Dreaming of a better self

Oh she knows that fortune only favors the bold
Oh she knows she’s beautiful, don’t need to be told

I got a picture of the girl I wanna be
I hope that one day that girl is me
Track Name: The Best Part Of The Day
The best part of the day
Is the moment I wake up with you
The sunlight slips through the shades
But I’m not nearly ready to move
Cos I haven’t woke up, I don’t wanna get up
Won’t you hold me, make the world go away
Cos lying right here with you’s the best part of the day

The best part of the day
Is lying here in your arms
We dreamt our worries away
Now we’re dozing in the morning calm
I aint leaving this bed, lets just stay here instead
And to hell with what the world may say
Cos lying right here with you’s the best part of the day

Before I come around and get it together
before I count all the things that I gotta do
Before the phone has a chance to ring
The morning birds they start to sing
Just before I open my eyes, just before I open my eyes

The best part of day
Is you and me lying here
Your arm hung over my waist
An you breathing softly in my ear
Lets just pull up the sheets, and pretend we’re asleep
Is there any way that we can stay
Cos lying right here with you’s the best part of the day
Track Name: Everything
Today the whole world became clear for the very first time
The answer to everything I have been trying to find
It was so obvious, how could I not see the signs
All that I wanted stood right here before my eyes

It took so long but I didn’t know where to begin
Guess I needed to know I was sure before I let you in
But I think I know now that I got you under my skin
Oh all you are, all you are,
All you are is everything, everything, everything

Well I wanted something much more than a casual fling
Cos I’ve been there before and I know all the trouble it brings
But I wasn’t quite sure what you were to me, how much you mean
Now I know, all you are is everything

When I can’t see straight, you make it clear
When I’m lonely, you’re the voice I wanna hear
And when I’m scared, you make my worries disappear
All I know is, I just need you here

Today the whole world became clear for the very first time
I opened my eyes and the rest then just fell into line
I’m so glad you waited while I got it clear in my mind
Oh all you are, all you are,
All you are is everything, everything, everything
Everything, everything
Track Name: Don't Stop
Still waiting for Romeo,
He’s running late by a year or so, maybe he’s a no-show, oh
I’m sure there’s a way to go,
Before I throw in the towel and lose all hope, but just lately I don’t know, oh.

I keep telling myself I’m just biding my time,
Gotta wait till the moment’s right, oh yes
When the going gets rough, you’ve had more than enough
And you wanna give up

Don’t stop, just keep giving, Don’t stop, cos life’s worth living
Just keep trying, laugh although you’re crying
Its never gonna bring you down now, no no
Don’t stop, just keep going, don’t stop , even though you know its
Snakes and ladders, but nothing really matters,
Its never gonna bring you down, just don’t stop

I keep getting the run-around
I had a plan for life, had it all worked out, well shouldn’t we be there now, oh
So the future has gone to ground,
At this point in time I should be taking a bow, instead I’m tearing my hair out, oh

I keep telling myself that its all gonna come, gotta walk before you run oh yes,
When the going gets rough, you’ve had more than enough
And you wanna give up

When it feels like nothing’s ever going to plan
Don’t give up now, just do all that you can
Track Name: Letting Go
Only one chance that I wanted to take
To hold onto something that I couldn’t break
But nothing worth keeping,
Will ever leave you anyway

So I’m letting go (say goodbye to my yesterdays)
I’m letting go (say goodbye to my yesterdays)
I’m letting go (say goodbye to my yesterdays)
I’m letting go (say goodbye to my yesterdays)

Only one part of you wanted to stay
But I always knew the words you couldn’t say
And I don’t wanna keep you
If your dreams are far away

Goodbye is just something that I’ll have to face
And I’ll try to move on
But I’ll leave the key to the door just in case
You wanna come home, you wanna come home
