Verse 1:
When I am lost
And feel like giving up
At what cost
Have I had enough
I hang my head
And let my heart speak
These words were said
As he answered me

Chorus 1x:
Do not fear
You will be fine
For you my dear
Have been through harder times
Trust my word
That I give to you
Because I'm sure
You're gonna make it through

Verse 2:
With you I'm strong
But without you I am weak
When I do wrong
For you I seek
When my path is blinded
And I can't see
I am reminded
Of what you said to me

Chorus 1x

Verse 3:
He knows our paths
And the steps we'll take
He has our backs
In every turn we make
When you start to worry
Bow your head and pray
And through his glory
You will hear him say

Chorus 1x

Ending:
Do not fear
You will be fine
For you my dear
You are mine

Do Not Fear

You dreamed you were a mermaid
But in real life you were just like everyone else
You always felt that you were different
So you spent alot of your time all by yourself

Oh Marina, you felt so alone
Oh Marina, you weren't on your own

Everyone said you wouldnt make it
So you did tlwhat you could to make it through
The the day came when you couldnt take it
So you did what you thought you had to do

Oh Marina, you felt so alone
Oh Marina, you weren't on your own

You dreamed you were a mermaid
In the water you thought you could breathe
All the doubters cried saying they loved you
But the ones who truly did you left to grieve

Oh Marina, you felt so alone
But oh Marina, you weren't on your own

Marina

You've stayed beside me when I'm strong
But will you still be there when I can't hold on
Will you push me over the ledge
Or tightly grab my hand instead

Like a tree I do stand tall
But there will be times when I fall
The winds will be too strong to withstand
So will you be there when I land

Oooh oooh i want to be with you
I really really need you
but if you're going to forsake me
I'll do what I have to
Fool me once shame on you
Fool me twice shame on me
So tell me right now boy, what's your answer gonna be
Yeah, tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be

On the days that I am weak
For your comfort I will seek
Will you be there to help me through
Or will I find that you have moved

Oooh oooh I want to be with you I really really need you
But if you're going to forsake me I'll do what I have to
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me
So tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be
Yeah tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be

Before I place my trust in you
Your loyalty must be proved
Can I give my heart away
Or in it's safe place should it stay

Oooh oooh I want to be with you, I really really need you
But if your going to forsake me, I'll do what I have to
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me
So tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be
Yeah, tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be

Oooh tell me what is your answer going to be

Yea tell me right now boy what's your answer gonna be

What's your answer

So down, been so down
Can't seem to pick myself up off the ground
These past year's been so long
Please tell me where did I go wrong

Will it ever be my turn
Will it ever be my turn

So hard, I work so hard
Am I even playing the right card
I don't feel like I'm strong
I don't know how much longer I can hold on

I feel like I'm sliding
But I must keep climbing

Push through, just push through
The waters may be rough, but I must continue
Low tides will arrive
Soon I will make it to the other side

I feel like I'm sinking
But I must keep swimming

Break free, just break free
From all the fear that's chained inside of me
One step at a time
My path toward my destiny I will find

My fear is fading
Through the water I'm wading

It will be alright
I keep my head held high, and look for the light
New times will begin
Before I know it, I can breathe again

My Turn

Verse 1:

I'm hiding from myself

Hiding from everyone else

Hiding from all these eyes

That watch my every move

Hiding from all of the lies

But I don't want to hear the truth

Chorus x1:

Can you find me

Can you hear me calling

I can't find me

I fear I am falling

Verse 2:

I'm hiding from myself

Hiding from everyone else

Hiding from all the debates

But they won't go away

Hiding from the tears running down my face

I think they are here to stay

Chorus x1

Can you find me

Can you hear me calling

I can't find me

I fear I am falling

Verse 3:

I'm hiding from this cold place

That is now empty in my heart

Hiding from this pain that surrounds me

While I'm hiding away in the dark

Chorus x1

Can you find me

Can you hear me calling

I can't find me

I fear I am falling

 

Can you find me?

Dance to the beat of your own drum.
You have your own music and your own rhythm.
Don't let no one tell you that you cannot move.
Because to them you have nothing to prove.

They'll try to make you and break you and mold you and shape you.
More like them from you they will contour.
They'll bend you and twist you until you don't know who.
Because like them you will be transformed.

So, dance to the beat of your own drum.
You have your own music and your own rhythm.
Don't let no one tell you that you cannot move.
Because to them you have nothing to prove.

You're amazing the way you are, you're your own shining star.
But the world tells you differently because to them you are different.
But don't give a damn what they say, only you can know your heart.
Don't let their words put you down, know that your Magnificent.

Dance to the beat of your own drum.
You have your own music and your own rhythm.
Don't let no one tell you that you cannot move.
Because to them you have nothing to prove.
Dance to the beat of your own drum.

Dance to the Beat of your own drum

You're beautiful
Flying in the sky
You're beautiful
With your wings spread open wide
Like you
Is who I want to be
Like you
Myself is who I see
Ooooh ooooh
You're majestic
With every move you make
You're majestic
My breath you take away
Like you
Is who I want to be
Like you
Myself is who I see
Ooooh ooooh
You're fearless
Soaring through the air
You're fearless
No worries, never scared
Like you
Is who I want to be
Like you
Myself is who I see
Ooooh ooooh
You're perfect
Your path's all figured out
You're perfect
Unlike me still full of doubt
Like you
Is who I want to be
Like you
Myself is who I see
Ooooh ooooh

Like You
