Track Name: All You Need to Know by This Too Shall Pass
You look at me
It's an 8 second rule
and immediately
you think you know who I am

You judge me from my worn out jeans
but honestly, what does that even mean?
You think you know me?
What is my middle name?
The one that lies in between the seams...

Chorus
All that you need to know
Is that you have so much more to show
Beauty is inner
You can't even see it, how can you tell
When you don't know me at all
You're one to judge, with your own imperfections
Something you hid cause you're afraid you might fall

To me, it's better to be who you are
if only, you knew that I bet you'd go far
I know you're nervous
You're secretly afraid
you're screaming inside
from the pressure you made
you gotta realize

Chorus

You look at me
It's an 8 second rule
and immediately
you think you know who I am
Track Name: Brainwash by Destroy
Perfect in your own way
What does that mean to you
Let me be who I want to be
don't tell me what I have to do,
stop brainwashing me with all that perfect stuff.

Don't want you to tell me what to be.
Just let me be myself.
I just want to be me, nobody else

Let me be myself, don't tell me what to do,
don't tell me what to say,
I will never be normal I will always be this way,
I'm not a barbie I'm a real girl
don't try to change who I am,
you tell me I should be normal
What's normal to you

Don't want you to tell me what to be.
Just let me be myself.
I just want to be me, nobody else

Perfect in your own way
What does that mean to you
Let me be who I want to be
don't tell me what I have to do,
stop brainwashing me with all that perfect stuff.
Track Name: Happy Colors by the Purple/Blue Rock Girls
Happy is yellow
Sad is blue
Green is awesome
Just like you

Red is angry
Orange is shy
Brown is like a
lullaby

I like colors
I like feelings
But what I like most is my ROCK BAND
Track Name: It's Not Easy by Indecisive
Chorus:
So it's time to let go
show you what I really know
stop trying to deny it
im starting to recognize it

Bridge:
it's not easy
it's not easy
coming from you
oooooooh
coming from you
it's the truth

Verse 1:
all the late talks on the phone
all the meetings,
shoulda known
you were hiding something from me
so it's time
to kiss the flame goodbye
no more crying
it's time to move on with my life

chorus

verse 2:
as the years pass by
I think of you inside
wondering how it could have been
but I guess it's over now
and I don't even know how
these years passed by so quickly

bridge

chorus
Track Name: No One Knows by Shiny Rock
No one knows where we've gone.
All they know is that we're back.
And they don't know where we're going
Or what we're doing next.
We're going to save the world through rock and roll
And girls are gonna rock the whole wide world.

'Cause together we're strong and no one can deny it
We've got each other, we won't fall tonight
'Cause shiny rock is what we've got

We won't fall, we're never sad
We've got each other to help us stay strong
And nothing can break us apart
Because we're together as one
And no one can tell us we're wrong

'Cause together we're strong and no one can deny it
We've got each other, we won't fall tonight
'Cause shiny rock is what we've got right now

We're gonna save the world through rock and roll
And girls are gonna save the whole wide world
(5x)
Track Name: Party Time by the Pop Rockerz
I wake up Monday morning, I don't wanna go to school
This happens everyday til the weekend then it's party time!
Every day, every night, we're gonna hit the dance floor.
I'm gonna do my favorite moves moves moves moves.

I like singing, singing is good. I like dancing, dancing is good. I like rocking, rocking is good.

I just wanna sing, I'm gonna be the last one singing.
I just wanna dance, I'm gonna be the last one dancing.
Every day I'm singing,
Let me hear you sing,
I'm gonna be the last one singing.

I like singing, singing is good. I like dancing, dancing is good. I like rocking, rocking is good.

I told you then, I told you now:
I'm gonna party all night like a crazy thing.
One, two three, woohoo!
Every body get up,
I wanna twirl around today,
I just wanna sing,
The music plays and I dance around,
I sing all crazy!
I feel soooooooooo happy here.

I like singing, singing is good. I like dancing, dancing is good. I like rocking, rocking is good.
Track Name: Pop Rocks by Pop Rocks
We are not dolls
We do not look like dolls
We do not act like dolls
As she opens the door
she's pushed into another world
of pretty horses and dreams
so she tells them to get out and leave.

Chorus:
We are pop rocks
and we have something to say
We rock, we are awesome
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

With words like snowflakes
the world gives everyone
a chance to speak out their voice
our head full of wonder
our time to change the world.

Chorus

A better place
where no one is afraid.
Anything is possible
if you have faith
in yourself.

This is the living.
Nobody can change me.
Track Name: Satanic Unicorns Eating Toxic Tacos by That's What She Said
I trusted you. But you lied.
I need you. Where are you? Get out of my head.

You were on my mind
About 99 percent of the time
And yes, you're in my head
But that doesn't make you stay
Stop waiting for thing
Go on and make them happen
We don't remember days
We only remember moments
It's all for moments like this
I spent my childhood
Wishing for the day when I'd be older
And I will admit that the time had come
And all this just sucks
Stop waiting for things
Go out and make them happen yourself
Don't wait. I want you here.

How can you expect me to be everything that you expected?
Track Name: Saying Goodbye by Royal Purple
Nothing comes easily when you're gone,
and that's why I wrote this song.
Its not any easier without you here,
I really wish you were near.

They say you'll make new friends,
I know that's true,
but I am also certain,
I'll never forget you.

Chorus:
This is a song for you,
wish you didn't have to go,
one thing I know,
is that I'll never forget you,
and that's why I'm writing a song for you.

You weren't always perfect,
but you were always worth it.
We had our share of bad days,
but they never stuck,
I'll never forget you.

They say you'll make new friends,
I know that's true,
but I am also certain,
I'll never forget you.

Chorus x 2
Track Name: Silver Lining by Narwal and the Sheeps
Verse1:
since I came home
i've been coming around
i've been coming around more
since I came home
i've been looking in windows,
breaking down doors
since I came home
the weather's looking kinda dirty
since I came back
I lost the need to settle my score

chorus:
this is harder than
it should be
the silver lining
is getting dirty
the rush it's known for
wants to keep me
and this is harder
than I though it would be

verse 2:
I need to bend my back
and turn it on the small things
I need to hold it straight
until it breaks the ice
you take what I make
and put it in your tall drinks
your celebration
when the sun is in your eyes

chorus

instrumental bridge

chorus 2x
Track Name: The Beat by Yo Zone
It's like music music, the spotlight's on and the band starts...
Make some noise together it's loud, make your noise, make it big and proud
Own your thing, make it your own, be the best, do your own tone

We rock all the time we make it big and fine
We write our own lyrics, we make our own songs
We're not afraid to show what we've got so come on come on let's rock

The beat. The beat. The beat. The beat.

Make some noise, together it's loud, make your noise, make it big and proud
Own your thing , make it your own, be the best, do your own tone.
Track Name: The Dream by Mystery Bass
I had a sleep over with my friends last night.
We all started to dream the same dream.
We were in a rock band.
We were rocking all night long.
We were on a stage in front of thousands of people,
they all started waving their arms.
 
Bright lights, I'm real real nervous.
My face is getting sweaty and I think they can tell.
Bright lights, I'm really nervous.
I think I heard a boo and I'm freaking out.
 
My face is turning red.
I don't know what to do.
I'm freaking out, and I'm scared of all of you.
Do you like it? I wish I knew.
 
Bright lights, I'm real real nervous.
My face is getting sweaty and I think they can tell.
Bright lights, I'm really nervous.
But I listen to the music and my feet start to move.
Track Name: The Open Hearted by The Metal Hearts
Who cares if I can't rule the school?
Who cares if I don't go to school?
Who cares if I'm a fool?
Who cares who cares who cares?

CHORUS:
We are open,
open-hearted!
O – P – E – N
open! Open-hearted!
O – P – E – N
open-hearted!

Who don't care who it is
We will help anybody that asks
We never say no we always say yes
We help help help and never stop
That's why we are open hearted!

CHORUS

Who cares if I'm NOT a fool?
Who cares if I can't rule the school?
Who cares if I'm not so cool?
Who cares?

CHORUS

BREAKDOWN!
Track Name: These Moments by Neon
This rage is so frustrating
I feel like I've been caged in
The way that you've been changing
Has got me going crazy

I don't know what to do
With myself
Without you
Cause there's a pain in my heart
There's a pounding in my head
Yeah I don't know what to do without you

No I can't go on like this
What have you done to me
Something is missing
Missing inside of me

I just feel like bursting
This is so confusing
I need you here with me
To keep me in harmony

To keep me in harmony
To keep me in harmony
To keep me in harmony

I don't know what to do
With myself
Without you
Cause there's a pain in my heart
There's a pounding in my head
Yeah I don't know what to do without you

This rage is so frustrating
I feel like I've been caged in
The way that you've been changing
Has got me going crazy
Track Name: Across the Street by 18th Street
Chorus:
I wanna go to the other side of the street
more places to go, more people to meet
I don't wanna stay on this side
with all the rules I have to abide.

Verse:
Traffic lights may hold me up
In the street I might get stuck
I will need to keep on going
Never doubting but not quite knowing

Chorus

Verse 2:
Everybody's on the wrong side
Just like my friend she's lost her mind
No one else is coming, I hope the winds favor me

Chorus

Bridge:

I'm walking to the other side of the street
I'm steppin' to the beat
I'm walking to the other side of the street
I'm steppin' to the beat

Chorus
Track Name: Untitled by Petroleum Jelly
You're the reason I'm so vain
You're the reason I'm in pain
You're the reason I'm ashamed
You're the reason I'm afraid
You're the reason why I cry
You're the reason I don't try
You're the reason inside I die
You're the reason why

Chorus :
You never brought me any good
Like I had hoped you would

You keep me running back to you, to you, to you
Running back to you
You keep me running back to you, to you, to you
& I don't know what to do

I told you all my secrets
I told you all my fears
But you just told lies
And I don't know what to do

Chorus

I know it's really stupid
But I just run back to you
You make me feel safe
So my mind says to stay
But my heart says no way

Chorus
