Track Name: Believe
Don't listen to those haters, you can make it on your own
Just believe in yourself and everything will be alright

Do what you love, do what you like, do something that will make you fine
Just put in your work, put in your time, next thing you know you're on your prime
So give it your all

Don't let the obstacles push you down again, your are strong and powerful
People who doubt you are wrong about you
You can make it on your own

Do what you love, do what you like, do something that will make you fine
Just put in your work, put in your time, next thing you know you're on your prime
So give it your all
Track Name: Keep Dancin'
You child, can I talk to you, I think it's about time that I start telling the truth

I am something that you'll never understand, you know I could show you if you'd just take my hand

I'm just tryna' say, we all have problems big and small, but somehow we'll find a way to get through it all

If you just put on your dancing shoes and feel the rhythm you have, when you groove it makes it easier to fell happy when you're sad

So keep dancin'
Track Name: I'll B There 4 U
I'll be there for you I will care for you
I'll give you my heart from the start
I'll give you my mind it won't talk much time

I only wanted to one time see you laughing
But I'm not so sure what's happening
It's such a shame our friendship had to end
But maybe we will someday meet again

Just what you mean to me
Maybe if you'd listen you would see
Black day, stormy night - no love, no hope in sigh
I don't know what it is about you but I just can't live without you

I only wanted to one time see you laughing
But I'm not so sure what's happening
It's such a shame our friendship had to end
But maybe we will someday meet again

And if you're evil I'll forgive you by and by
Although you've hurt me I will never cry

Make you happy when you're sad - make you good when you are bad
When I think about you with someone else
My heart drops and I'm overwhelmed

Maybe you'd understand
If you'd just take my hand
My love for you will never die
But I guess it's time to say goodbye,
