-Kingdom Hearts

You’re alone in the dark
Saying, “Don’t cry”
You’re so freaking tired
Of watching your life slide by
I want you to get up and try
You have a life to live
You have so much to give
Listen to me
Live your life
Don’t be afraid
Hold on tight
Forget the mistakes you’ve made
Stand up tall
Don’t drop the ball
Scream at the moon
What have you got to lose?
Steal a car
Speed at midnight
Sleep under the stars
Turn up the volume
I hope that you find yourself
You can’t go back
I need you to be brave
Show me you’re not afraid
Live your life
Don’t be afraid
Hold on tight
Forget the mistakes you’ve made
Stand up tall
Don’t drop the ball
Scream at the moon
What have you got to lose?

Scream it loud

Scream it proud

You are you

What you got to lose?

Wow! Just wow. That is amazing! But I do agree with Amai on the rhythm. But it's wonderful! Keep it up!

The only thing I'd suggest here is fixing the rhythm so that there's a fixed syllable count, which would make the rhymes work better.
