You said sorry one too many times How can I believe in a lie Led by your false promises My heart was stolen and mistreated I left you to be on my own Thank you for breaking my heart Without you there’s no dark no dark no dark (Ohh) Thank you for breaking my heart For making me strong I carry on In other words you helped me through Now I’ve broaden my horizon too This is my new destiny An opportunity without you I left you to be on my own Thank you for breaking my heart Without you there’s no dark no dark no dark (Ohh) Thank you for breaking my heart For making me strong I carry on Finally I believe Finally To leave was the only way Thank you for breaking my heart Without you there’s no dark no dark no dark (Ohh) Thank you for breaking my heart For making me strong I carry on Finally I believe Finally To leave was the only way Thank you for breaking my heart Without you there’s no dark no dark no dark (Ohh) Thank you for breaking my heart For making me strong Thank you for breaking my heart Without you there’s no dark no dark no dark (Ohh) Thank you for breaking my heart For making me strong I carry on

Supernova 03:45
Since the very beginning I had a dream A goal to reach All this time I was led by you So many years with ups and downs I struggled I struggled so hard so hard so hard To get this far All I ever wanted was more Look at you You’re shining bright You’re a star All I ever needed was you Just like you I want to be a star star Supernova One and only shining star Supernova Lighting up my world so far I’m with the crowd You’re impressive In you I see celebrity There is no doubt you light up the room Finally after all those years It became suddenly clear clear clear To me All I ever wanted was more Look at you You’re shining bright You’re a star All I ever needed was you Just like you I want to be a star star Supernova One and only shining star Supernova Lighting up my world so far Supernova One and only shining star Supernova Lighting up my world so far Supernova One and only shining star Supernova Lighting up my world so far

You still cross the line I’ve often tried to point it out Drew attention to it Communication seems to fail No one is perfect or a friend to all As adults we tend to ignore As adults we seem so strong As adults we write it off as a normal part of life for all Don’t bully me again I’d rather live without the stress Don’t bully me Be friendly instead Don’t bully me again It has a negative effect on how I feel the way I think and how I act I saw what your parents put you through You used to push me and the weak around in school Today you haven’t changed at all No one is perfect or a friend to all As adults we tend to ignore As adults we seem so strong As adults we write it off as a normal part of life for all Don’t bully me again I’d rather live without the stress Don’t bully me Be friendly instead Don’t bully me again It has a negative effect on how I feel the way I think and how I act Your heart’s so big my friend I love you till the end It’s time to let love in – let love in To let love in Don’t bully me again I’d rather live without the stress Don’t bully me Be friendly instead Don’t bully me again It has a negative effect on how I feel the way I think and how I act Don’t bully me again I’d rather live without the stress Don’t bully me Be friendly instead Don’t bully me again It has a negative effect on how I feel the way I think and how I act

Wake Up 03:16
Every morning I get an idea I’m supposed to act right on it right on it Can’t get out of bed Too lazy and forget Work is calling So damn bad timing Wake up wake up What am I waiting for Wake up wake up My body’s like a broken car I’ve run out of fuel Run out of fuel Wake up wake up wake up Too much to do these days Why do I complain I’ve got all I need to live a wild life So why can’t I wake up Every night I’m dissatisfied Missed out on my exercise exercise I wanna fill my days Spending time on what I like Health’s reduced The work is my excuse Wake up wake up What am I waiting for Wake up wake up My body’s like a broken car I’ve run out of fuel Run out of fuel Wake up wake up wake up Too much to do these days Why do I complain I’ve got all I need to live a wild life So why can’t I wake up It’s not that easy to be balanced that’s for sure I’m realistic I get what I deserve Wake up wake up What am I waiting for Wake up wake up My body’s like a broken car I’ve run out of fuel Run out of fuel Wake up wake up wake up I’ve run out of fuel Run out of fuel Wake up wake up

This World 03:45
This World is a dangerous place This World where mistakes can be made Following rules by the government Stay home stay safe and isolate We are afraid of the dark People Let’s stick together and be grateful for not given up People Let’s work together and see the light at the end of the tunnel tunnel This World an unpredictable place This World where we want to feel safe Protect our children and the old Everybody talks but nobody knows We're still afraid of the dark People Let’s stick together and be grateful for not given up People Let’s work together and see the light at the end To survive in this world we’ll have to prove to ourselves that We’re not afraid of the dark People Let’s stick together and be grateful for not given up People Let’s work together and see the light at the end of the tunnel tunnel Mmm There’s a bright light in you
