A song a day for six years seems like light years away from today
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
Too many coincidences and instances of God's hand, it's insane
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
I thought my way to greatness
I could claim this, but he gave me the brain (hey, hey, hey, hey)
You know what I'm saying?
And those thoughts can get confusing, it's amusing
But tonight, we celebrate (hey, hey, hey, hey)

Lay me down, put me out
Call me home, let me know
I'm ready to go
'Cause I was down, now, I've flown
Oh, what's reality lately?

Remember dreams seemed far away
Was pinching pennies like Lane and Hardaway
Now my beats make feasts for holidays in Greece
And I don't mean John Travolta

Remember dreams seemed far away
Was pinching pennies like Lane and Hardaway
Now my beats make feasts for holidays in Greece
And I don't mean John Travolta
And I don't mean John Travolta, yeah
And I don't mean John Travolta

Dancing under sunset, in the mountains, just reflecting for the day
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
I've seen this in my head a million times
But to see it come to life is just insane (hey, hey, hey, hey)
Champagne and orange juice
Mimosas were Pulp Fiction in the way (hey, hey, hey, hey)
That all can get confusing, it's amusing, but tonight (ooh, ooh, ooh, celebrate)

Lay me down, put me out
Call me home, let me know
I'm ready to go
'Cause I was down, now, I've flown
Oh, what's reality lately? (oh)

Remember dreams seemed far away
Was pinching pennies like Lane and Hardaway
Now my beats make feasts for holidays in Greece
And I don't mean John Travolta
Remember dreams seemed far away

Now my beats make feasts for holidays in Greece
And I don't mean John Travolta

Put me out

I'm ready to go

Oh, what's reality lately? (oh)

And I don't mean John Travolta
Remember dreams seemed far away
Was pinching pennies like Lane and Hardaway
Now my beats make feasts for holidays in Greece
And I don't mean John Travolta
Far away, Hardaway
Holiday, don't mean John Travolta
Far away, Hardaway
Holiday, don't mean John Travolta
Lay me down, put me out

Call me home
(Holiday, don't mean John Travolta)
(Don't mean John Travolta)
Call me home
I'm ready to go

Track Name: Cool/Fire
Original Song by Gabrielle Macafee
Solo - Phillip Stringham
Arrangement - Tom Anderson

Nervous and pacing
I can’t take my eyes off of you
Hopeless, I lose sight of all that I wanted to do
So I’ll pick it up and pretend it’s nothing
You’ll move to something new
I’ll trick myself into breathing
But I’m freaking out

I’ve never been the one to lead a crowd
Feigning my existence to appease the ones who shout

And even when I’m at my tallest
I’m the smallest in the room
But then you come along
and the wind caves to your moves
cause you’re so cool
you’re so cool

I’m taught to be patient
But I want to know how it ends
Cause I’m finding out that I’m lonely
Despite all my friends
Breath in
Breath out
I’m losing my pace as
I face all the monsters that call out my name
So, count to three
To be the hero in my dreams

I’ve never been the one to lead a crowd
Feigning my existence to appease the ones who shout

And even when I’m at my tallest
I’m the smallest in the room
But then you come along
and the wind caves to your moves
cause you’re so cool
you’re so cool

So when my heartbeat gives out at the sound of your voice
And I try to stay silent to cut through the noise
I’m alone
And it’s all I know

So I’ll escape to the city, get lost in the crowd
I’ll find a power in trusting myself
And I’m alone
It’s all I know
And I am fire
I am fire

But you’re so cool

Track Name: Last Drop
Original Song by - Isabella Sbarra-Michelland
Solo - Isabella Sbarra-Michelland
Vocal Percussion - Wedler Lordeus
Arrangement - Tom Anderson

Have you ever ridden a roller coaster in the rain?
The wind is in your lungs and you're screamin'
But are you screamin' for the pleasure or the pain?
And as your body starts to cry are you still breathin'?

It makes me feel
like maybe he can be part of this
he can be part of this, he will come
But when he kiss me
Am I a fool for the false bliss?
The ride I'm on is endless, endless

And on my face I feel the last drop
On my face I feel the last drop oh, oh
And on my face I feel the last drop
On my face I feel the last drop, oh

I know I've ridden a roller coaster in the rain
and the up and down is slowly suffocatin'
It's been so long since I first went insane
And I can't feel any more because I'm fadin'

It makes me feel
Like he wants me, like he needs me
Like he loves me when he sees me
And he leaves me when he leaves me
I feel a gun against my head
He says get in or instead
I won't be cryin' when you're dead

And on my face I feel the last drop
On my face I feel the last drop oh, oh
And on my face I feel the last drop
On my face I feel the last drop oh

I'm getting sick of wanting your love
G-force is simply never enough for you
for you, oh, oh, oh
I'm getting sick of watching you go
try to hang on, but you've got no room for two, ooh
For you

And on my face I feel the last drop
On my face I feel the last drop oh, oh
And on my face I feel the last drop
On my face I feel the last drop oh, oh

Have you ever ridden a roller coaster in the rain
The wind is in your lungs and you're screamin'

Track Name: Lovely
Solos - Annie Vardanyan & Wedler Lordeus
Arrangement - Tom Anderson
Originally Performed By - Billie Eilish & Khalid

Thought I found a way
Thought I found a way out (Found)
But you never go away (Never go away)
So I guess I gotta stay now

Oh, I hope some day I'll make it out of here
Even if it takes all night or a hundred years
Need a place to hide, but I can't find one near
Wanna feel alive, outside I can't fight my fear

Isn't it lovely, all alone
Heart made of glass, my mind of stone
Tear me to pieces, skin to bone
Hello, welcome home

Walking out of time
Looking for a better place (Looking for a better place)
Something's on my mind
Always in my head space

But I know someday I'll make it out of here
Even if it takes all night or a hundred years
Need a place to hide, but I can't find one near
Wanna feel alive, outside I can't fight my fear

Isn't it lovely, all alone
Heart made of glass, my mind of stone
Tear me to pieces, skin to bone
Hello, welcome home

Woah, yeah
Yeah, ah
Woah, woah
Hello, welcome home

I'd give you all my money
If love was the currency
If my back was up against it
I'd swear on my property
I know you ain't the one to gamble
I bet you you're gonna win
Lay all your cards on the table
Let me know if you're out or in

If you give a little time then I'll be yours (Ooh)
Just spend a little time 'cause it don't cost (Ooh)

1, 2, 3, add it up
You plus me, that's enough
Put it all down on a good thing
Don't you wanna know what you're missing?

Don't you wanna know what you're missing?

Put a little love on me
A little love down on me
Won't you put it down on me
Put a little lovin' down on me

If you want security
Then baby, invest in me
You don't need to bail me out, no

Originally Performed By - Melt

Can I help you find what you're looking for?
If not, then I'll be on my way.
I don't know what you'll find anymore
and I won't make you stay, no.

I'm just a host to those who rule my mind
and now I'm feeling this way all the time.
They push me down, they're keeping me alive
and I don't know what's real and what's inside.
Real or what's inside.

When my mind went blank I understood
but now it feels like a game.
Why does something so dark make me feel so good?
Oh, the pull, it doesn't have a name - no.

I'm just a host to those who rule my mind
and now I'm feeling this way all the time.
They push me down, they're keeping me alive
and I don't know what's real and what's inside.
Real or what's inside.

[Instrumental]

Watching my lies spill onto the floor -
a battle I'll fight on my own.
She's taking me over to my core
but I'll take my strength from her bones.

I'm just a host to those who rule my mind
and now I'm feeling this way all the time.
They push me down, they're keeping me alive
and I don't know what's real and what's inside.
Real or what's inside.

I'm just a host to those who rule my mind
and now I'm feeling this way all the time.
They push me down, they're keeping me alive
and I don't know what's real and what's inside.

I feel like a six out of ten
I've gotta get up early tomorrow again
What goes on behind the words?
Is there pity for the plain girl?

Can you see the panic inside?
I'm making you uneasy, aren't I?
What goes on behind the words?
Is there pity for the plain girl?
I'll close my mouth, I won't say a word
A nod of pity for the plain girl

I know that you don't want me here
I know that you don't want me here
I know that you don't want me here
I know that you don't want me here
I know that you don't want me here
Oh I'll just call a taxi, I gotta get up early tomorrow again
Oh I'll just call a taxi, I gotta get up early tomorrow again
What goes on behind the words?
Is there pity for the plain girl?
I'll close my mouth, I won't say a word
A nod of pity for the plain girl

Track Name: Call Off the Dogs
This is an original song by Gabrielle Macafee
Solo - Talia Tumminello
Vocal Percussion - Wedler Lordeus
Arrangement - Tom Anderson

I know I got it, yeah, I know I got it
A hundred miles an hour and I don’t know how to stop it
I’m usually quiet but I feel kind of brave right now.

I know you saw me, yeah, I know you saw me
Dancing in the light I didn’t feel the pressure on me
Until I saw your face in the crowd.

And we don’t talk anymore
Since the start of the war
Is it all in my head?
And I know it’s just a game
But if you put down the blade
We can work it out.
And I’m giving it a shot so

Call off the dogs
I’m coming alive
Wanna dance to the beat but you’re ready to fight
So take it down, I can pull ya down
Bare your teeth, I’m gunnin’ for us anyway
Call off the dogs, and move a little closer
Feel the beat and let it take over
Take it down, you’ll never cool me down
‘Cause I’m on fire but I’m never gonna burn

You know I got, yeah, you know I got it
But you broke my heart and I don’t know how to right it
When I find myself, will you still be the same?
I told you I’m fine, I’m doing alright
But the ghost is haunting me tonight
So I’ll call ya from a thousand miles away

But we don’t talk anymore
Since the start of the war
Or is it all in my head
I know it’s just a game
But if you put down the blade
We can work it out
And I’m giving it a shot so

Call off the dogs
I’m coming alive
Wanna dance to the beat
But you’re ready to fight
So take it down
I can pull ya down
So bare your teeth
I’m gunnin’ for us anyway
Call off the dogs
And move a little closer
Feel the beat and let it take over
Take it down
You’ll never cool me down
Cause I’m on fire and I’m never gonna burn

Cause I’ve spent too many nights
Loving fear and taking flight
Away from everything
I thought I’d change
And I think it’s about time
I face the fear and let it die
Remind myself I’m gonna be okay

Call off the dogs
I’m coming alive
Wanna dance to the beat
But you’re ready to fight
So take it down
I can talk you down

Call off the dogs
And move a little closer
Feel the beat and let it take over
Take it down
You’ll never cool me down
Cause I’m on fire and I’m never gonna burn

Yeah, I’m fine
I’m doing alright
