I wake up in the morning
I just wanna go to bed
I got these dreams
I can’t get outta my head
I could be a contender
For fortune & fame
It’s time to rip up
The rules of the game

M, m, m, m, m, m, m, m…

More than this
I could be more than this
There must be more than this
So much more than this
Give a me more
Give a me more
Give a me more
Give a me more

I work all day in the office
I work on the way home
My arm aches from my laptop
My head aches from my phone, phone, phone, phone
I could be a contender
For wine, women & song
It’s time to work out now baby
Where it all went wrong

M, m, m, m, m, m, m, m…

More than this
I could be more than this
There must be more than this
So much more than this
Give a me more
Give a me more
Give a me more
Give a me more

I don’t want to be a stereotype
I want to believe in my own hype
It’s time to take a stand
As the singer in a rock and roll band

Back from reality
It’s back to life
Bring me to life
Bring me to life
Bring me to life

I’m gonna be a contender (more than this)
For fortune & fame
It’s time to define (more than this)
New rules to my game
I’m gonna be a contender (more than this)
For wine, women & song
With my masterplan (more than this)
Nothing will go wrong

Mama, mamama, mamama, mamama, mamama, ah, ah, ow!

More than this
More than this
More than this
I could be more than this
More than this
I should be more than this
I could be more than this
So much more than this
More than this
I could be more than this
I should be more than this
So much more than this
More than this
I should be more than this
I could be more than this
So much more than this
Na, na, na, naah, na
Na, na, na, naah, na
Na, na, na, naah, na
Na, na, na, naah, na
I’m gonna be a contender
I’m gonna be a contender, oh
I’m gonna be a contender
Be a contender
Be a contender, oh
More than this
M, m, m, more than this!

Track Name: Beauty
It’s in my eyes, in your eyes
It’s in my eyes

In my eyes you are a river flowing freely to the sea
In my eyes you are a honey-giving flower to a bee
In my eyes you are a rainstorm on a humid summer day
In my eyes you are a hurricane that blows my mind away

Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in the eye of the beholder, baby
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in my eyes, in your eyes
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in the eye of the beholder, baby
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in my eyes, in your eyes

In my eyes you are a strawberry dripping with the best champagne
In my eyes you are a Stratocaster’s soaring last refrain
In my eyes you are a living work by Michelangelo
In my eyes you are the brightest light that I will ever know

Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in the eye of the beholder, baby
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in my eyes, in your eyes
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in the eye of the beholder, baby
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in my eyes, in your eyes

Beauty

Ballet dancing with a loaded gun
Whip cracking in the setting sun
Opportunity, serendipity
Pictures of you are all that I can see
Playing games with loaded dice
Selling souls for sugar and spice
Blind theology, miracle biology
Boomerang orangutan you keep coming back to me
Beauty!

Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in the eye of the beholder, baby
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in my eyes, in your eyes
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in the eye of the beholder, baby
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in my eyes, in your eyes

You’re beautiful (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You’re beautiful (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You’re beautiful
It’s true
You’re beautiful (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You’re beautiful (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You’re beautiful
It’s true

On the outside (on the inside)
On the inside (on the outside)
On the outside (on the inside)
On the inside (yeah)
On the outside (on the inside)
On the inside (on the outside)
On the outside (on the inside)
On the inside (yeah)

Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in the eye of the beholder, baby
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in my eyes (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Beauty! (beauty)
It’s in the eye of the beholder, baby
Beauty! (beauty, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

Track Name: Phoenix
When the sun goes down
For the very last time
Who will hold my hand & say goodbye?
When the going gets tough
And I’m all alone
Who will be my friend as time goes by?
As the coldness draws in to me
The flames of love begin to die
As memories stoke the fire again,
I begin to cry
My strength has all but left me
Victim to sorrow and despair
I cry for help, I cry for love
But no one seems to care

Lift me up
Lift me higher
I need a helping hand
I’ve loved and lost
I don’t know why
I just don’t understand

When I close my eyes
And I think of you
The thought of you beside me makes my life go on
But when I’m all alone
Now I’m all alone
The knowledge of your love for me has gone
You can’t turn back the clock but I still try to
Living in the past never today
Dreaming [dreaming] is the only thing left for me
Nightmares are the price I have to pay

Lift me up
Lift me higher
I need a helping hand
I’ve loved and lost
I don’t know why
I just don’t understand

Maybe I should’a been stronger (maybe I)
Maybe I should’a been weaker
Maybe I should’a been all the things I’m not (all the things I’m not)
Maybe I should’na loved you (maybe I)
And told you all the things that I told you
Maybe I deserved everything I got (everything I got)

Lift me up
Lift me higher
Through the clouds into the sky
The fire’s dead
Long live the fire
Fly my Phoenix, fly!

Come on now and fly!

Fly!
Phoenix fly, come on Phoenix fly
Phoenix fly, come on Phoenix fly
Phoenix fly, come on Phoenix fly
Phoenix fly, yeah, yeah

When I lift my head
From the pillow each day
And turn my face to the light of the rising sun
I’m born again
I have the chance again
To do all the same old things I’ve always done
Why does wisdom come so slowly
In matters of the heart
Each new day, I have the chance
To make a brand new start
To rise up from the ashes
To build a brand new fire
Bigger, better, than before
Stronger, hotter, higher

Lift me up
Lift me higher
There’s no time now for goodbye
It’s time for me
To stretch my wings
It’s time for me to fly
Lift me up
Lift me higher
Through the clouds into the sky
It’s time for me
To stretch my wings
Fly my Phoenix, fly!

Come on Phoenix fly, Phoenix fly
Come on Phoenix fly, Phoenix fly
Come on Phoenix fly, Phoenix fly
Come on Phoenix fly, Phoenix fly

Fly!
Track Name: The End
You say to me that my snoring is getting too much
You can’t stand my face, you can’t stand my touch

I’m caught in the middle, baby
I’m caught in a trap
Just gotta move on
No turning back

But I know, I know
Sure as day turns in to night
Yeah I know, I know
You can’t win without a fight
So hold it in
Work it out
Everybody scream and shout!

I know that we can take it
I’m never gonna break it
I know that we will make it
Ooh, yeah in the end
The end
In the end

You say to me that you never really liked this song
You know, everything that I do is wrong

I’m caught in the middle, baby
I’m caught in a trap
Just gotta move on
No turning back

But I know, I know
Sure as day turns in to night
Yeah I know, I know
You can’t win without a fight
So hold it in
Work it out
Everybody scream and shout!

I know that we can take it
I’m never gonna break it
I know that we will make it
Ooh, yeah in the end
The end
In the end
I know that we can take it
I’m never gonna break it
I know that we will make it
Ooh, yeah in the end

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I know that we can take it
I’m never gonna break it
I know that we will make it
Ooh, yeah in the end
The end
Ah, ya, ya, in the end
I know that we can take it
I’m never gonna break it
I know that we will make it
Ooh, yeah in the end

In the end
It’s the end
