I see you walking my way
Mean to me don't want it that way

Mean things said like my lack
Of coolness you think you're all that
I won't deny it
But I'll smile
You make me laugh

Away my smiles for ever
Make me sad no no

My smiles till the end of my days
My smile stays

Say I'm a friendenemy
Bad comments don't set them free
But I don't care what you think

CRY

Written By: Kaleigh Jo Kirk

Lyrics and Melody by Kaleigh Jo Kirk
Music by Deborah Gibson

CRY

(Verse)

Well I still love you, even though you did bad
You took my heart and tore it apart
And I’m still trying not to cry
Don’t wipe this tear from my eye
When you turned my name into your tattoo
I thought I was engraved on you

(Chorus)

Don’t make me cry this time
Don’t make me cry not this time
I’m not your life raft in your sea of troubles
You won’t make me cry this time

(Verse)
You pull me close and then you push me aside
afraid I will leave,
thinking I don’t love you, that’s so naive
you make a plan with me, then call it off
then say we do nothin’ with you

(Chorus)
Don’t make me cry this time
Don’t make me cry not this time
I’m not your life raft in your sea of troubles
You won’t make me cry this time

(Bridge)
I can’t do this for you
Choose the right path yourself
When you turned my name into your tattoo
I thought I was engraved on you
Don’t make me cry

(Chorus)
Don’t make me cry this time
Don’t make me cry not this time
I’m not your life raft in your sea of troubles
You won’t make me cry this time
You won’t make me cry this time

(Outro)
Well I still love you
And I’ll know you’ll do good
You won’t make me cry this time

BEAUTIFUL

BEAUTIFUL

[Verse]
The day hasn’t gone so good
You’re the new girl this year
You try hard to fit in
As hard as you could
That ain’t workin out
You try not shed a tear
You think back on what your mom had said

[Chorus]
Your beautiful
You have a soul of gold
You can shine like a star
Your original
And beautiful

[Verse]
you try hard to make a friend
the more you try the more they laugh
you sit at the lunch table alone
everything went wrong so you sang this song

[Chorus]
your beautiful
you have a soul of gold
you can shine like a star
your original
and beautiful

[Bridge]
at recess you cry in the corner
while the others are gone
when the teacher notices you
she leans down and says

[Chorus]
your beautiful
you have a soul of gold
you can shine like a star
your original
and beautiful
(outro)
your original
and beautiful
oooooooo
yeah
Your Beautiful

DREAM

Written By: Billy Evans & Tami Maurer - Artist Kaleigh Jo Kirk

DREAM

VERSE
If I saw you
Would you know what I’m waiting for
Would you pull away
Or pull me in

Every word you say
Is every word I’ve been searching for
If I drift too far
Would you bring me back again

PRE-CHORUS
And I and I want
You oh
I can not help it

CHORUS
Hey is this all just a dream floatin’ by
I really want it
I really need it
I’m really hopin’ that it’s all for real

VERSE
When I
Look at you will I ever see
The open wounds
Or the scars you leave

If I come undone
Will you be the one to help me
Or should I count on you
To just disappoint me

PRE-CHORUS
And I and I want
You oh
I can not help it

CHORUS
Hey is this all just a dream floatin’ by
I really want it
I really need it
I’m really hopin’ that it’s all for real

REPEAT CHORUS
Hey is this all just a dream floatin’ by
I really want it
I really need it
I’m really hopin’ that it’s all for real

BRIDGE
And when I reach for you
Will it leave a strain
Or will I just fade away

CHORUS
Hey is this all just a dream floatin’ by
I really want it
I really need it
I’m really hopin’ that it’s all for real

REPEAT CHORUS
Hey is this all just a dream floatin’ by
I really want it
I really need it
I’m really hopin’ that it’s all for real

OUTRO
That it’s all for real

KEEP ON CLIMBING

Written By: Kaleigh Jo Kirk

KEEP ON CLIMBING

(Verse)
I’m havin’ a hard time
I’m climbin’ high then I fall
I’m tryin’ to reach the top
But I always stop
(Pre chorus)
These obstacles are in my way
Preventin’ me from what I want to say
(Chorus )
If there’s a mountain standin’ in my way
I won’t move it
I’ll just climb and climb away
Till I reach the top
I’ll keep on climbin’ up
(Verse)
I’m failin’ on my courage
I’m startin’ to count on my fear
I’m changin’ into the wrong gear
But I can’t fight this war
(Pre chorus)
These forces are slowin’ me down
Stoppin’ me from where I’m bound
(Chorus )
If there’s a mountain standin’ in my way
I won’t move it
I’ll just climb and climb away
Till I reach the top
I’ll keep on climbin’
Up
(Bridge)
This force is stallin’ me
Why won’t it let me be
This storm it needs to stop
And see that I’ll keep climbin’ climbin’ climbin’
And see that I’ll keep climbin’
Climbin’
Climbin’
If there’s a mountain standin’ in my way

(Chorus )
If there’s a mountain standin’ in my way
I won’t move it
I’ll just climb and climb away
Till I reach the top
I’ll keep on climbin’
Up
(Outro)
If there’s a mountain standin’ in my way
I won’t move it
I’ll just climb and climb away
