VERSE Do you believe that in life you have time to make your world You have the wisdom to choose all that’s right to bring you happiness deep in my youth I thought I could see truth, I was so wrong, years have passed by before this song, would pour out my thoughts in these words Chorus That Once upon a life you get your chance Once upon a life, like some last dance don’t say no, just embrace, when it calls out your name Verse I remember a time when the crowd looked to me to be so strong I thought that I could do no wrong, and couldn’t be seen to be weak Anything that broke the power I had was a no go I was a prisoner of what I saw in the eyes of the world Chorus That Once upon a life you get your chance Once upon a life, like some last dance don’t say no, just embrace, when it calls out your name Once upon a life you get your chance Once upon a life, like some last dance don’t say No, Like I did, as it faded away

It’s my life

Verse 1

It’s my life, and I want to persue my dream, you say I’m blind, but I see what I want to be, then you storm in & you tear me down, you tell me I’ve got attitude, did you consider all those words you said, before they lead to tears & pain & anger...

Chorus

...in my life, I feel the need to fan, fan the flames of this fire, all my life I’ve felt this burning desire, in my life, in my life, in my life

Verse 2

we’re born with a yearning flame, we should let that flame grow, to blaze it’s light on all our lives, but when the wind & rain come pouning down, confounding all that energy, it’s like the king will never get his crown, I’m not going down, I’m searching, reaching, fighting..

Chorus

...in my life, I feel the need to fan, fan the flames of this fire, all my life I’ve felt this burning desire,

Break

Verse 3

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt, I just need you to understand, I know you’ve paid the price with sacrifice, doesn’t mean I need your good advice, we’re treading on a very different path, but there must have been a time when you felt like this...

Chorus

...in your life, did you ever need to fan, fan the flames of your fire, all my life I’ve felt this burning desire, in your life, did you ever need to fan, fan the flames of your fire, all my life I’ve felt this burning desire, my life, your life, my life, your life,

Rise Verse 1 My particular love is music, I can feel it running right through my veins, If I refuse it and don’t use I would live with emptiness and blame, so I’ll walk on this path of mine.

Play it safe, the people told me, do not take a chance on reaching distant shores follow the route that we have chosen for you and your life of happiness will be assured I can’t adopt this frame of mind.

Chorus I say to you Rise Throw you hands up to the sky Don’t let your chance pass by gotta take it all the way don’t watch it slip away
