Track Name: This Moment
(verse 1)
This is it now
Here it is now
Step into the ring, take the scene, make your dream now

All you've lived for
All you've died for
Everybody's ready, eyes steady on you, boy

Lights are going down
Hear the kick sound
Hands start to sweat, feel your heart in your chest pound

This is where it's at
Ain't no turning back
Now it's going down, now it's going down...

(chorus)
This moment, it's my time to shine
This moment, I feel so alive
I keep going, until the day I die
It's what I've waited for, what I'm created for
This moment, it's all on the line
This moment feels so divine
I keep going 'cause it's do or die
It's what I've waited for, what I'm created for (yeah yeah yeah)

(verse 2)
People come and
People go, man
Hands on the wheel, keep your eyes on the road, yeah

Here comes another one
With a loaded gun
Never would you ever try to take it from me, son

Back up to the wall
Time to give it all
This is what it's down to, leave it all on the floor

This is where it's at
Ain't no turning back
Now it's going down, now it's going down...
Track Name: Sometimes
(verse 1)
Mr. Invincible, you
Stand on top of the world, you
Don't have a care at all, you've got all that you need

But a time is coming soon, when
You'll look around the room and
No one's there helping you, how could this really be

(pre-chorus)
I'd be there for you but you don't want me to
Would you be there for me?
I don't think so

Got no love to give, but that's no way to live
Is this how it should be?
Please just say no

(chorus)
We all need love sometimes
I'll be right here if you're trying to find peace of mind
Your time will come and so will mine
In the end we'll find that
We all need love sometimes

(verse 2)
You hide behind a wall, cause
You've got no time at all, just
Thinking 'bout number one, can't give what you can't take

But we all need someone, friend
No man can stand alone, and
Someday you've gotta learn, just hope it's not too late

(pre-chorus)
I'd be there for you but you don't want me to
Would you be there for me?
I don't think so

Got no love to give, but that's no way to live
Is this how it should be?
Please just say no

(bridge)
Cause when the night comes, you ain't got nowhere to run
Whatcha gonna do, tell me what you gonna do now?
When it all falls, you ain't got no one to call
Whatcha gonna do, tell me what you gonna do now?
Track Name: Superman
(verse 1)
In the back of my mind I hear you callin'
It's ringing out like the sky is fallin'
You know it breaks my heart to hear ya cryin'
Wishing there's something that I could say

And you been hurt many times before this
You want better but you can't ignore this
All alone and you can't endure this
Thinking I should come and save the day

(pre-chorus)
But you should know that you've been heard
Girl you've only gotta say the word
(I'm) no hero, but I'm on the scene
Yeah this looks like a job for me

(chorus)
Let me be your Superman
I wanna save you
Girl, I swear I'll do the best I can
(Can we fly away, now baby?)
Let me help you understand
It might be crazy
But I wanna be your Superman
(Can we fly away, pretty baby?)

(verse 2)
Girl, I think it's time I made my move
Brace yourself I'm coming to the rescue
Ain't supernatural, what I do
But I'm gonna do this anyway

I'll do whatever I got to
To keep you safe and to defend you
Promise on me you can depend, you'll
Never look for love again

(pre-chorus)
Cause you should know that you've been heard
Girl you've only gotta say the word
I'm no hero, but I'm on the scene
Yeah this looks like a job for me

(bridge)
All you gotta do is call my name
And I'll be right there for you
Any time or day, sun shine or rain
There's nothing I won't do

(rap break)
Yo, I got your call, Facebook and your Twitter
Hit ya right back, said, "girl, I'll come and get ya" now
It doesn't matter whether rain or shine
Gotta give you my love gotta make you mine
Not fast like a bullet, I ain't got no game
But I can be your Clark Kent, you can be Ms. Lane
We'll be happy ever after if you'll be my lady
Can we fly away, pretty baby?
Track Name: Standing In the Shadows
(verse 1)
I've got a story now
One that you never will hear
I've got a light to shine
That you can't see over there

But you don't want to know
You keep on passing me by
And your true colors show
I see that look in your eye

(pre-chorus)
I am me, I am you
I am many known by few
Seldom seen, seldom cared
Seldom mentioned in your prayers

Outfit outdated
Birthday never celebrated
I'm the one that you ignore
I'm the least and I'm the poor

(chorus)
Oh what a shame,
Standing in the shadows
Cause I don't have a name
But you can't see we're all the same
Someone shine the light on my way (yeah)

Wasn't a choice
Standing in the shadows
Cause I don't have a voice
But you can't hear above the noise
Someone shine the light on my way (yeah)

(verse 2)
Now to the average man,
You may just think of me less
And to the richest man,
A tax deduction at best

And to the government
I'm just a check on the first
Or just a soul to save,
project for the local church

(pre-chorus)
I am me, I am you
I am many known by few
I'm the one that's calling out
Can anybody hear me now?

Do you care who I am?
Will you ever understand?
I'm the one that you ignore
I'm the least and I'm the poor

(bridge)
See I'm the nameless
Yeah, I'm the loveless
And I'm the voiceless, fatherless and motherless

I'm the defenseless
Helpless and the hopeless
I am every one of us (I am every one of us)...
Track Name: You're Not Alone
(verse 1)
Sister, I've been hearing things
That you've been going through
For such a long time
You wonder if you're ever gonna see the clouds part
See the sunshine

Woah I want you to know
That I've been praying for your soul, child
Hoping you see He's never gonna leave
No matter what you're feeling now

(chorus)
Cause when the rain starts to fall
And I know it surely will
And when the pain becomes all that you can feel
Just get down on your knees and pray
I know you're gonna find your way
But you've gotta know
You've gotta know you're not alone

(verse 2)
Brother, I've been noticing
The way you walk around
With your head down
Thinking that nobody even knows your name
That you don't even matter now

Woah I want you to know
That I've been praying for your soul, child
Hoping you fight to make it through the night
And morning comes early now

(bridge)
I know you're tired of hearing
Everything is cool, that you'll be alright
Cause you just wanna know
That somebody's here with you to be at your side
And when words can't mend a heart breaking up
When the sun won't shine, and you've had enough
And when hope just fades away
You can always count on me

(ending)
And when words can't fix it
You can count on me
Oh, when all hope is gone
You can count on me
Oh, when the sun won't shine
You can count on me
Oh, you're not alone
Oh, you're not alone
Just get down on your knees and pray
You can count on me
Oh, I know you're gonna find your way
You can count on me
You can count on me
Oh, you're not alone

When all hope is gone
You can count on me
When everybody leaves you
You can count on me
I'll be right here for you
You can count on me
Oh, you're not alone
Oh, you're not alone
Track Name: How Do You Maintain?
(verse 1)
Girl, I look into your eyes
And see you're lost again
You're putting on your best disguise,
Like it don't cost a thing
'Cause everything's a game to you,
Get all you can somehow
If everybody's into you,
It doesn't matter now

(pre-chorus)
Consumed, you've spun out of control
But you, won the world to lose your soul

(chorus)
How do you maintain
The life you live when everything falls apart
And all you love has broken your heart?
How do you maintain?
You work so hard but tell me what have you gained?
Oh, how do you maintain?

(verse 2)
Girl, you seem to think
There's nothing that you can't afford
Make it look nice, never think twice
On what you're living for
Got your grip tight,
On everything in sight but reality
Just save it for another night,
Cause you never wanna see

(pre-chorus)
Oh you, just look what you've become
It's true, you've crashed and burned,
Now everything's undone

(bridge)
Oh, how I wish that I could get through to you, my friend
There's so much that you were meant to be
Oh, how I hope that someday
Maybe you'll understand
Life is more than what you have,
It's more than what you see
Track Name: Half a World Away (Bonus Track)
(verse 1)
Oh, it's just another lonely day inside my world
Where I've been singing things that never will be heard
Is there some rhyme, some reason, lesson to be learned?
Well, I hope so

(verse 2)
There's been some questions about facing things I've done
It's got me caught up in the race that can't be won
But that don't make much sense when I see everyone
'Cause they don't know

(chorus)
But sometimes it feels like I'm always half a world away
From all of the things in my dreams, all the words I pray
But if I quit, if I fight, if I make it tonight
Oh, one of these days I'll be there

(verse 3)
Now I've been trying to put myself inside your shoes
Wondering if you questioned me what would I do
And all I can say is that I'll be right there with you
I won't let go

(rap verse)
Chin up, son, there's really nothing anyone can say
But when the night is done
You'll see me in a brand new way
And all those tears you've cried I'm wiping away
So take a deep breathe, know that everything is okay
Ain't no way that anyone could ever take you away
Til the day this world is tumbling and crumbling away
Comprende? I know it's hard to see forever today
But just remember three words that I say
