Track Name: One Day
I can't see my own face these days
It's like someone's taken over
And I don't even know her
Something's telling me that all of this won't work out
My intentions I should give up
And leave them in the gutter

I'm under a cloud these days
And all it ever does is rain
I'll understand sometime
When I see you
I am in the shadowlands
Trying just to find your plan
I know where I wanna be
And I will get there
One day

So many of my battles end in downhill slides
And sometimes I cry when I don't know what to do
The pressure rises everyday
If I do a good job, disappoint, run away
I'll hear of it
From the critics to the ones I love

This is not a fantasy
I know just who I wanna be
I will not spin out of control
I know just where I wanna go

I'm under a cloud these days
And all it ever does is rain
I'll understand sometime
When I see you
I am in the shadowlands
Trying just to find your plan
I know where I wanna be
And I will get there
One day
Track Name: Validation
Why do I look to you for my validation?
Why do I search in your face and I hold on every word just like it's
A life raft in the middle of the sea
I look to you but never to me
Why do I look to you for my validation?
Why do I look to you?
Oh oh oh

Why do I look to you when I know that I'm alright the way I am?
Why do I search in your face?
Why do I let you tell me how to feel?
Why do I look to you to my, for my validation
Why do I look to you to find out who I am?
Why do I look to you? Oh oh oh

Heard a voice in the middle of my soul
Checked a couple times to see that I'm in control
It isn't madness, but he said to me
That it is love that defines who I am
Oh it is love that defines who I am

And so I look to you to get what I need
And I will search in your face and I'll hold on every word
Because you're my life raft in the middle of the sea
I'll look to you but never to me
I will look to you for my validation

And the ones who try to bring me down will have to come against
The one who put me, put me here in the first place
And I wish you joy I wish you luck
I wish you all the best,
But hey, I get what I need from the best of the very best
And so I look to you to get what I need

And I will search in your face
And I'll hold on every word because you're my life raft
In the middle of the sea
Oh yeah to find out who I am
Oh yeah to find out who I am
I will look to you
Track Name: Run
You look a little shy in your tracksuit and pants
Almost embarrassed like you've been bad
Waiting on the sideline for the man to call your name

You look a little scared walking out to the big track now
And there's cameras in your face like wow
You've been waiting and praying for this moment for a long time now

So run boy run, run boy run
Show them what you've got, show them what you're made of
Run boy run, run boy run
Show them what you've got, show them what you're made of

You look a little scared as you do your warm-up jog
And I sit on the sidelines, trying to relax
Heart and soul, mind and body, sweat and tears
Have gone into this
And in a couple seconds you will know if you have run the race you wanted to

Run girl run, run girl run
Faster then you can, faster then you dare
Run girl run, run girl run
Faster then you can, faster then you dare

Run now run, run now run
Show them what you've got, show them what you're made of
Run now run, run now run
Track Name: Leap of Faith
He loves me, he loves me not
I'm plucking daisies in an old parking lot
I'm by myself, pondering
The only question in the universe
He loves me, he loves me not
Took me a long time
To get to this point, but now I'm wondering

If I fall down, will someone catch me?
If I reach out, will someone grab me?
If I let go, will someone help me?
Oh, this is my leap of faith

There is a past that
I'm dying to forget
So many memories that I regret
Will he love me or
Will he push me away
Cause I'm beginning to wonder

I struggle with trusting you every day
Flashbacks on my life that I'd rather not replay
But you calm the storm
You tell me I'm yours

And if I fall down, I know you'll catch me
If I reach out, I know you'll grab me
If I let go, I know you'll help me
Oh this is my leap of faith
Oh I took my leap of faith
Track Name: This Crazy Road
My Mama never told me what to spend my life on
But she used to say that you've gotta stay strong in the world
Cause it's just crazy

You gotta know who you are when you step outside
And if you walk in a room, hold your head high
Cause you know who you are

And there's people that'll give you a hard time
And there's people that'll give you a good time
And there's drive you crazy
And there's people that'll leave you in the gutter
And some will forget to love ya
But you can't afford to change

And I wanna know just where I should go
Just where I should go
And I wanna know whose hand I should hold
So I'm not alone
On this crazy, crazy road

My mama used to tell me that there's people out there
Who will hate me just because they can
And I said I didn't care

But I did a bit of growing
And I lived my life
Learned enough to know that the world outside
Is a whole lot bigger then me

And there's people that'll give me a hard time
And there's people that'll give me a good time
And there's people that'll drive me crazy
And there's people who will leave me in the gutter
And some will forget to love me
But I can't afford to change

And I wanna know just where I should go
Just where I should go
And I wanna know whose hand I should hold
So I'm not alone
On this crazy, crazy road
