Native Active – First Lyrics

(Couple 1)
Sitting in the Channel’s hall
Waiting for the talent show
All are running through the door
Oh my mind drops on the floor
(Couple 2)
Practiced all my difficult
Twice and three times physical
Everything natural
I’m Ready for my general
(Couple 3)
I’ll do my best, no time to rest
This is gonna be my test
It’s time to rise, I’ll get the prize
I wanna hypnotize
(Coulpe4)
Remember that you have to push
Something that you love to lose
If you’re meant to be so good
Don’t forget you’re fabulous

(Chorus) Refrain
First, First “oh oh”, First I wanna be the best
What if I’m next “oh oh”
Judges taking all the rest
First, First “oh oh”, First I wanna be the best
I’m passing the test “oh oh”
Judges back in business

(Instrumental)
(Couple 1)
Dancing on the stage I’m,
Feeling like the crazy y’all
You can feel my fantasy
On the stage my mastery
(Couple 2)
Master all your movements
Make the crowd come with you again
Don’t be afraid it’s cool for them
If you’re not so confident
(Couple 3)
I’ll do my best, no time to rest
This is gonna be my test
Is time to rise, I’ll get the prize
I wanna hypnotize

(Couple 4)
You can show your improvise
You can give yourself more time
If your life is on the floor
Don’t forget to get them all
Refrain
(Solo Vocal)
Oh ow ow, this is what I really want
This is my time to shine,
I know it’s not easy but probably worthy
I have a call to succeed
So many goals to achieve, and many dreams to believe
(Instrumental)
(2 x refrain)

“Why”
John DeBortoli & Joe Carrier
© 2008

Verse 1: Why, why don’t you say?
Why, why do you play?
Why, why don’t you say you don’t love me no more?
You don’t need me no more
You don’t love me no more, you don’t need me no more

Verse 2: Why, why do you say?
That, that it’s okay
Why, why do you play?
You play with my heart
Right from the start
You say it’s okay to leave me this way

Chorus: Why do I keep on lovin’ you just the same?
When I shouldn’t be the one taking all the blame
Tell me why

Verse 3: Why, why don’t you say?
Why, why do you play?
Why, why don’t you say you don’t love me no more?
You don’t need me no more
You don’t love me no more, you don’t need me no more

Chorus: Why do I keep on lovin’ you just the same?
When I shouldn’t be the one taking all the blame
And why do I keep living with all this pain?
When I know that in lovin’ you it’s all in vain

Bridge: Tell me what’s goin’ on oh wont
Tell me what I do now
Please tell me what’s goin’ on
Won’t you tell me what I do today

Chorus Out…

When I was just a small boy, my father came to me.
He said Son there’ll come a time, when you will have to be
Strong to the core, and unable to fall.
He told me that from now on I must, always stand tall
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will never fall
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will have it all
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will become
A Man that can, stand alone,
And hold the world up, all alone.
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will never fall
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will have it all
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and you will become
The man that you want to be,
A man that is always free,
The man that I call son,
The man I will always love.
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, Now I am Standing Tall.
So Stand Tall, Stand Tall, ’cause I know I’m not the only one.
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and together we will never run;
Together we can face the world.
Together we can save the world.
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and together we can’t fall.
Stand Tall, Stand Tall, and we will have it all
Stand Tall, Stand Tall; we are Standing Tall for us all

Stand Tall
