Doesn't it mean anything I'm standing here at your door tears streaming down my face cuz I can't fight it anymore told you I needed time maybe you thought that was a line but time helped me see how good you are for me Chorus: And if you don't already know you are rock n roll you fill my life with song right here's where I belong don't tell me you've moved on Now I've got everything everything money can buy and it don't mean anything without you by my side I told you I don't need you baby it turns out I do I need you to say it's gonna be okay Chorus And if you don't already know you are rock n roll you fill my life with song right here's where I belong don't tell me you've moved on bridge: if I let myself say it I'd say I'm afraid to fall don't want to lose you I'm ready to risk it all Chorus And if you don't already know you are rock n roll you fill my life with song right here's where I belong don't tell me you've moved on

Unbreakable naive, naive and young I fell for you deaf blind and dumb I took, took you at your word When you said you were devoted Despite what I had heard And you kept me at arms length walking on egg shells you'd say “let's see where it goes” When the whole time you knew CHORUS: Looking back I see it too I was not the one for you lucky for me, I am UNBREAKABLE I took a fall, now I see I am UNBREAKABLE UNBREAKABLE True love, true love and destiny Didn't interest you The way it interests me You'd rather turn, turn on your TV turning out the light Instead of facing me You kept me at arms length walking on egg shells you'd say “let's see where it goes” when the whole time you knew REPEAT CHORUS Musical Interlude REPEAT CHORUS

Read my lips There ain’t no reason you and I should play a dumb-ed down version of the dating game I knew I would know when I found you from the look in your eyes you knew you'd know too PRE CHORUS: maybe I was doubtful maybe I was hopeless once that feeling didn't last that's a thing of the past maybe you were always waiting in the wings for me to turn the other cheek and start singing: CHORUS: Na Na Na Na Na Na baby I adore you read my lips I'm longing for you Na Na Na Na Na don't want to control you read my lips i want to hold you I've lived enough life to know what i want I'm so done with the word : ambivalent let's hit the road lets hit the tarmac no matter where we go I've got your back PRE CHORUS: maybe I was doubtful maybe I was hopeless once that feeling didn't last that's a thing of the past maybe you were always waiting in the wings for me to turn the other cheek and start singing: CHORUS: Na Na Na Na Na Na baby I adore you read my lips I'm longing for you Na Na Na Na Na don't want to control you read my lips i want to hold you Bridge: No more wishing on falling stars No more wondering where you are CHORUS

I never thought I'd love again but when I look at you the room begins to spin you found me on my knees stretched out your hand you helped me stand that’s why I got my fingers crossed behind my back got butterflies in my eyes now I got fingers crossed behind my back got butterflies in my eyes I hope it lasts I never thought I'd want to say your home is in my heart it's here your meant to stay but I see you and I fall ten stories inside every single time that’s why I've got my fingers crossed behind my back got butterflies in my eyes now I got fingers crossed behind my back got butterflies in my eyes I hope it lasts some say love, love will make you weak but love will make you strong sometimes you cannot speak of the love that makes you leap leap without a net getting your feet wet that’s why I've got my fingers crossed behind my back got butterflies in my eyes now I got fingers crossed behind my back got butterflies in my eyes I hope it lasts got butterflies in my eyes I'm falling fast oh, I got my fingers crossed

You are the bow to my violin The prism of light in which I swim You are the key to my smart car You are my guiding star that's why I want you to fly fly home to me I'm counting on you and when you do do bring a suitcase for dreams I can carry with you I'll bring my suitcase too I'll meet you in Malibu in Malibu meet you in Malibu in Malibu You are my lotus in a muddy pond You opened my heart inspired this song You are written in the key of me You are my harmony that's why I want you to fly fly home to me I'm counting on you and when you do do bring a suitcase for dreams I can carry with you I'll bring my suitcase too I'll meet you in Malibu in Malibu meet you in Malibu in Malibu Where palm trees bloom and grow Where we know: love means letting go that's why I want you to fly fly home to me I'm counting on you and when you do do bring a suitcase for dreams I can carry with you I'll bring my suitcase too I'll meet you in Malibu in Malibu meet you in Malibu in Malibu 2x

I love the way you love the way January snuck up on us I love the words of love that pass your eager lips, effortless as clouds crossing the sky you and I have broken down the doors of our minds it's freedom time Lucky Me Lucky Me you are the mirror in which I see a bigger reality You're thankful for your new found freedom grateful for great successes I'm passing on all I'm learning yearning for a holiday or two crossing the sky you and I have broken down the doors of our past free at last Lucky Me Lucky Me you are the mirror in which I see a bigger reality Lucky Me Lucky Me your eyes are wide with wisdom love and loyalty and if I'm rising like a phoenix its your love lifting me you pulled me from the ashes I let smother me Lucky Me Lucky Me you are the mirror in which I see a bigger reality Lucky Me Lucky Me your eyes are wide with wisdom love and loyalty OH lucky me OH lucky me

The Most Beautiful Girl In The World I'm looking out the window at lake Ontario sparkling and glittering like a show girl at a casino while you are sprawled out in front of the fire place you say “I cannot take my eyes off your face” CHORUS: You make me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world like make me feel completely seen You're all about growing, thriving and flowing a vision of integrity opening the door for me ans when the sun slowly sets in the candy floss sky you reach out your hand and say “baby, be mine” CHORUS: You make me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world like make me feel completely seen like a supermodel stepping out of a limousine Bridge: And I want to thank you for making me number one oh baby you spoil me and its so much fun you say it was written and you believe in romantic destiny CHORUS You make me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world like make me feel completely seen like a supermodel stepping out of a limousine The most beautiful girl in the world The most beautiful girl in the world

suitcase in hand, you lock your car you won't be driving for the next ten days you introduce yourself, everyone's a stranger and deep down you know it has to be that way you've got an aching head and a tiny bed its so hard to fall asleep away from home wearing your old Levis you've got butterflies and the sneaking suspicion you'll always be alone chorus: but when you go home your gonna walk with your head held high and you'll know these were the best ten days of your life what's your secret? they'll all want to know when you go home in the next room a girl named Eden covered head to toe in tattoos she slams in and slams out all noisy confusion the only one here more mixed up than you until you wake up on day six from a dream in which you found you could fly above the maple trees and their yellowing leaves beyond the clouds into the clear blue sky Chorus: when you go home your gonna walk with your head held high and you'll know these were the best ten days of your life what's your secret? they'll all want to know when you go home Chorus: when you go home your gonna walk with your head held high you'll know these were the best ten days of your life and you'll find out, like I did, there ain't nothing that you don't already know, when you go home
