Track Name: Champion
Some people never learn
what you give will return
some people live a lie
you score each time you try
 
Give my head a chance to breath
give my heart a chance to feel
]give my eyes a chance to visualise forgotten dreams
let me break through from routine
let confidence reign supreme
take a chance on what may seem impossible to be
 
I keep on pushing myself to the limit yeah yeah
and sometimes it feels like I'm here on my own
excuses have the power
make a good idea sound crazy
call me insane cos I remain a champion
 
Oohhh - Do everything you say
let nothing get in your way
hey yeah yeah
what you believe is true
Baby its up to you
(Born a champion x2)

Take a step towards the door
build your ceilings mend your flaws
while you work don't be afraid to live
beneath the clouds
swim through visions see your goal
tackle burden feed your soul
what you reap is what you sew
for you your time is now!
 
I keep on pushing myself to the limit yeah yeah
now I realise why I'm here on my own
excuses have the power
make a good idea sound crazy
call me insane but I remain a champion
 
Ooohhh - Forget what you heard before
start walking through the door
you'll make it through some how
baby your time is now
Born a champion x2

You should be high with the birds
but you keep playing with the vultures
don't you know they ain't got nothing on ya
ain't got nothing on an eagle.
You should be high with the birds

OOOH - Baby your a champion
don't you know it can be done
OOOh Forget what they say to you

Track Name: Angel
Thinking of the days when you was here with me
recalling happy times with smiles and ginger beer
thinking of the sunshine from the joy you bring
holding onto thoughts of just being
we would laugh and joke all day
then the sun would set after the day was done
letting you go wasn't easy
thats why I keep you in my heart forever warm

Angel
How can
I be
close to you
x2
 
If I could take a picture of the wisdom you installed in me
I would show it to the world to see
every photo like a beautiful reunion
every smile so sweet (oh yeah yeah)
we would laugh and joke all day
then the sun would set after the day was done
letting you go wasn't easy thats why I keep you in my heart
forever warm

Angel
How can
I be
close to you

Angel make me smile
feel just like a little child
Angel your so sweet
keep me strong beneath your wings x2
 
Angel
How can
I be
close to you
Track Name: Smile
She left quickly you got left behind
now your thinking, Why am I here?
She felt lonely lost inside her mind
now she wants to fly away from here
 
Every day she wakes up to clothe herself in pride
just to hide the hurt inside
a solo battle she must fight
now she doesn't bother telling friends when she feels down
cos they don't understand her frown
they just prefer when she's the clown
 
And they cant see be - hind her smile hides her tears
and they don't know be- hind her eyes hides her fears
cos she knows how to hide it all in her hat
and every time you smile at her
she'll smile back

She grew quickly, broke out of her shell
so desperate to find the hidden key
she walked boldly alone in the world
trusting in her guide to set her free
 
Everyday she looks up to see whats he'll provide
and see her path slowly unwind
she takes a step although she's blind
she's not use to holding on but she can't let go
her tears have nourished time to grow
she's looking up and letting go.
 
And they cant see be - hind her smile hides her tears
and they don't know be- hind her eyes hides her fears
cos she knows how to hide it all in her hat
and every time you smile at her
she'll smile back

Every time you look in her eyes
you'll see the pain and suffering
from where she used to be used to be
now there is no surprise
she's looking up and breaking free
 
Now they can see me
after all of these years
and they should know they've helped me through all the tears
now I know how to
deal with all of the rough
now every time you look at me
you'll see love.
Track Name: Back Up (Bonus Track)
Need some time
time to clear my mind
I'm not pushing you away just need a sec to breathe
need some space
so get out of my face
emotions are in default so I need for you to

Back up for a minute x4

I need some time to clear my mind
I need some space
so get out my face
and back up for me
 
Need a break
to much on my mind
when pressures on my shoulders
I need to find a release
need some time
wish I could rewind
your messing up my aura
so I need for you too

back up for a minute x4

Bridge
What you here for
give me space oh
wont you back up for me
told you before
don't you ignore
won't you back up for me x2
