Track Name: Just Who I Am!
Verse 1

La Da Da

Dirty clothes, I ignore
A crooked clock hangs on my wall
Sometimes my hair is red, or styled in dreads
I like to wear sneakers with a cocktail dress

PC
You may tease me when I sing off key
And when I’m dancing to a hip hop beat
That don’t bother me cuz

Chorus
That’s just who I am
What you see, is what you get
That’s just who I am
I know I’m crazy; can’t change me baby
I’m nobody else but me…Just who I am

La da da , da da da

V
I’m not a gourmet Chef, I must confess
I like cheesy chips on my tuna fish
I got a new tattoo, says, “I love me too”
And purple martinis make me come unglued.

PC
You roll your eyes when I make funny faces
And when I skip around in public places
That don’t bother me cuz

Chorus
That’s just who I am
What you see, is what you get
That’s just who I am
I know I’m crazy; can’t change me baby
I’m nobody else but just who I am

Bridge
I don’t try for perfection
Not afraid of your rejection
Your words won’t get it my way

Chorus
That’s just who I am
What you see, is what you get
That’s just who I am
I know I’m crazy; can’t change me baby
I’m nobody else but me I’ll be nobody else but Just who I am
La da da da
Track Name: You Make Me Feel Beautiful
You Make Me Feel beautiful

VERSE

YOU SAY I'M THE PRETTIEST THING THAT YOU'VE EVER SEEN
YOU SAY I’M LIKE THE SUN KISSIN YOU AWAKE FROM A DREAM
AND I LIKE THE WAY THE WORLD FEELS LIGHTER WHEN YOUR HOLDING ME TIGHT
AND THIS MIGHT BE THE FIRST TIME LOVE EVER FELT SO RIGHT

CHORUS

YOU MAKE ME FEEL BEAUTIFUL, SO BEAUTIFUL
I FEEL BEAUTIFUL WITH YOU. LA DA DA DA DA
YOU MAKE ME FEEL BEAUTIFUL. OH , SO BEAUTIFUL
I FEEL BEAUTIFUL WITH YOU. OH OH YES I DO!

LA DA DA DA DA

VERSE

YOU TELL ME, I'M THE EXTRA IN YOUR ORDINARY
AND YOU TELL ME, I MAKE THE MERCURY RISE WHEN IT’S COLD AND DREARY
AND WHEN I’M FEELING LOW, YOU SWEEP ME UP OFF THE GROUND AND I KNOW,
IT WILL NEVER EVER EVER GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS LOVE!

CHORUS

BRIDGE
OH YOU DON’T KNOW WHACHA DO WHACHA DO TO ME
OOHHH DON’T CHA KNOW WHACHA DO OOH OH OH

CHORUS
Track Name: Am I Invisible?
V1
DAY AFTER DAY… I DREAM ABOUT YOU. I GET LOST IN THE CLOUDS
AND I MELT WHEN YOU MOVE.
WHEN I THINK ABOUT YOU MY BREATH STARTS TO RACE
AND A RAINBOW OF COLORS DANCE ON MY FACE.

PC
BUT NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY; I CAN’T GET YOU TO CATCH MY EYES.

CHORUS
AM I INVISIBLE? JUST LIKE THE AIR?
A BREATH ON THE WINDOW, THAT SOON DISAPPEARS?
MY HEART SILENTLY STOPS, CUZ I’D GIVE UP ALL THAT I’VE GOT
FOR YOUR LOVE. AM I INVISIBLE?

V2
YOU FLOAT NEXT TO ME LIKE A RIVER OF WIND,
AND I AM FROZEN BY THE WARMTH OF YOUR SKIN
BUT YOU LOOK THROUGH ME LIKE I AM A GHOST,
JUST PART OF THE SCENE THAT YOU DON’T NOTICE

PC
CUZ MY SMILE DOESN’T GET YOU TO STAY I CAN’ T GET YOU TO LOOK MY WAY.

CHORUS

BRIDGE

THEN ONE DAY BY CHANCE WE ARE BOTH EYE TO EYE,
YOU START TO SMILE AND I START TO FLY,
BUT MY TEARS FALL WHEN I SEE YOUR NOT SMILING AT ME…


MY HEART SILENTLY STOPS, CUZ I’D GIVE UP ALL THAT I’VE GOT, FOR YOUR LOVE!

CHORUS
AM I INVISIBLE, NOTHING BUT AIR.
A BREATH ON THE WINDOW, THAT JUST DISAPPEARS
MY HEART SILENTLY STOPS,
CUZ I’D GIVE UP ALL THAT I’VE GOT. BUT I AM INVISIBLE
Track Name: Don't Grow Up Too Fast
Verse

DON’T GROW UP TOO FAST . I WANT TO HOLD YOU WHILE IT LASTS.
AND I KNOW THAT YOU WILL BE, EVERYTHING YOU ARE MEANT TO BE

CHORUS
HERE IN THE NIGHT, I CAN WATCH YOU DREAM
HERE IN THE NIGHT I CAN WATCH YOU BREATHE.. SILENTLY

Verse 2
DON’T RUSH INTO LOVE. SOMETIMES ITS JUST NOT ENOUGH
AND BE OK WITH YOURSELF. HAPPINESS DOES NOT LIE WITH SOMEONE ELSE

CHORUS
HERE IN THE NIGHT, I CAN KEEP YOU SAFE
HERE IN MY HEART I HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU ALWAYS


END

NO DON’T GROW UP
No Don’t Grow up too fast
