What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

Dream like you will live forever, live like you will die today.


Is there something I should know?
Nobody’s fool.
Nothing in common,
with or without you

Love is a battlefield,
guns in the sky
hit me with your best shot.
Never surrender-
boys don’t cry.

Burning heart, broken wings…
Do you really want to hurt me?
Owner of a lonely heart
things can only get better.

I want to break free
I want to know what love is
I still haven’t found what I’m looking for-
Heaven knows I’m miserable now.
Goodbye.

This is very original! I love the fact you incorperated older songs into your work, that went along with the message you were trying to put across. Keep up the good work!
