Tracklist and Lyrics

01. Here
Written by: Idina Menzel & Peter G. Kuzma

Sweet revelation got me levatating over ground
Life and all its vibrations
No I’m never coming down
Oh you’re my own superhero
Keeps watchin’ over me
I like it when you say my green eyes are your constellations to some
Lighthouse in the sea

If your car stalls in the middle of the road in snow
I know, I know you’ll be here
Lights out in all of the city, black out, no doubt
I know you’ll be here
River flows through the streets, and the homes are floatin’
I know you’ll be here
Stranded in the middle of China
They’ll find ya
I know you’ll be here

I’ll be waiting by the window with a view of the park at night
No matter how long it takes ya
Never fails you come through every night

If your car stalls in the middle of the road in snow
I know, I know you’ll be here
Lights out in all of the city, black out, no doubt
I know you’ll be here
River flows through the streets, and the homes are floatin’
I know you’ll be here
Stranded in the middle of China
They’ll find ya
I know you’ll be here

At the speed of lightning
Here
Where the sun is shining
Oh, where the stars’re aligning
Here
Oh here

If your car stalls in the middle of the road in snow
I know, I know you’ll be here
Lights out in all of the city, black out, no doubt
I know you’ll be here
River flows through the streets, and the homes are floatin’
I know you’ll be here
Stranded in the middle of China
They’ll find ya
I know you’ll be here
[repeat]

I’ll be waiting
I’ll be waiting
I’ll be waiting
I’ll be waiting right here
Oh, I’ll be waiting baby

02. You'd Be Surprised
Written by: Idina Menzel, Jamey Jaz & Kevin Wyatt

You’d be surprised
At all that I’ve become
You’d be surprised
I’ve changed while you’ve been gone
And I’ve learned so much more from you than I could ever say
If you were here
I think that you’d stay

You’d be surprised
How far these arms can reach
You’d be surprised
There’s a promise I can keep
Would you believe that I seldom fall to pieces any more?
If you were here
You’d like what you saw

You’d be surprised
If you were here
We’d make up time
For all that’s disappeared
And I, I’d hold you like I never could

You’d be surprised
My life is often sweet
You’d be surprised
It’s you who brings me peace

And for some unearthly reason
It takes losing you to see
If you were here
I’d know just what you’d need

You’d be surprised
I’ve loved you all along
You’d be surprised
I now confess when I am wrong
And I see the world around me in a slightly softer shade
If you were here
You wouldn’t walk away

You’d be surprised
If you were here
We’d make up time
For all that’s disappeared
And I, I’d hold you like I never could

You’d be surprised
If you were here
We’d make it right
There’d be no tears
And you’d confide in me
And I’d be there
I’d be there – I’d be there
I’ve changed
You’d be so surprised
I’ve loved you all along
Things I’ve said you viewed it wrong
I’ve loved you all along
You’d be surprised

03. If I Told You
Written by: Idina Menzel & Jamey Jaz

If I told you that I lie sometimes
If I told you that I run away
If I told you who I was before
Would you follow me?

If I told you that I sneak sometimes
If I told you that I love too much
If I showed you the other side
Would you follow me?

‘Cause I’m shedding my skin
So you can see my face
I need you to know who I am
I’m ready to go
Where I’ve never been
Will you stay around and follow me?

If I told you the Earth was square
If I told you water wasn’t wet
If I told you life was fair
Would you follow me?

Oh – ‘Cause I’m shedding my skin
So you can see my face
I need you to know who I am
I’m ready to go
Where I’ve never been
Will you stay around and follow me?

To the furthest moon and back
Jupiter and Mars and all that
To the middle of the galaxy
On the smallest raft
I don’t know if I can be sure
Of anything I’ve believed before
But will you follow me?

‘Cause I’m shedding my skin
So you can see my face
I need you to know who I am
I’m ready to go
Where I’ve never been
Will you stay around and follow me?

To the furthest moon and back
Jupiter and Mars and all that

04. Penny
Written by: Idina Menzel & Milton Davis

Don’t know much about practicing what I preach
Don’t know how to be envious without jealousy
Don’t know how to hold my temper, when I have to get in the last word
Don’t know how to speak softly and still be heard
But before I lose everything and everyone who loves me

God if you’re listening would you have a message sent
‘Cause I need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend
God if you’re listening would you come up with some change
‘Cause I wake up every morning with a penny to my name

Don’t know much about love ’cause I get the same crap from every guy
Don’t know how to see the grass being greener on my side
Don’t know much about wisdom without being jaded
Don’t know how to take criticism without feeling hated
But before I lose everything and everyone who loves me

God if you’re listening would you have a message sent
‘Cause I need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend
God if you’re listening would you come up with some change
‘Cause I wake up every morning with a penny to my name

Whoa man, I’m everything I said I wouldn’t be
Standing here with nothing, will you help me?

Don’t know how to tell a joke without putting my foot in my mouth
Don’t know how to be intimate if I don’t have a crowd
Don’t know how to be hopeful, what if they let me down?
I don’t know how to keep myself from hurting everyone

God if you’re listening would you have a message sent
‘Cause I need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend
God if you’re listening would you come up with some change
‘Cause I wake up every morning with a penny to my name
[repeat]

Oh God
I don’t know much about nothin’
Oh just give me a break

05. Once Upon a Time
Written by: Idina Menzel & Jamey Jaz

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put us back together again
We huffed and we puffed and we blew this house down
We tried, yeah we tried

The sticks and the stones were breaking my bones
And the names that were said kinda hurt us
Riddle me this, and riddle me that
What went wrong, what went wrong?

When did the sun stop shining?
When did we turn into two divided?
I guess we will never really know why
But I remember once upon a time

Sometimes I wished upon a star
To give you a reason to give me your heart
Rock-a-by baby, you rocked me goodbye
Tell me why, tell me why

When did the sun stop shining?
When did we turn into two divided?
I guess we will never really know why
But I remember once upon a time

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put us back together again
We huffed and we puffed and we blew this house down
We tried, oh we tried, you know we tried

When did the sun stop shining?
When did we turn into two divided?
I guess we will never really know why
But I remember
Yeah, I remember

When did the sun stop shining?
When did we turn into two divided?
I guess we will never really know why
But I remember once upon a time
Once upon a time

06. So Beautiful
Written by: Idina Menzel, Jamey Jaz & Kevin Wyatt

Sometimes I watch you while you’re sleeping
I see you’re having dreams tonight
And I know just by the way you’re breathing
That I’m the vision in your mind
Wherever you may go my love, wherever you may be
All that matters in this world is just lying next to me
So sleep tight sweetheart
You’re free

So beautiful, you make me smile
So wonderful, you’re in my life
Incredible that you are mine
So beautiful you give me light
You bring me joy, you bring me sight

I watch the way you love your family
And how everyone looks to you
And I don’t want to be here standing
If you didn’t hold me, baby hold up me like you do
Wherever I may go, my love, wherever I may be
I know my dreams will find you just lying next to me
So sleep tight sweetheart, you’re free

So beautiful, you make me smile
So wonderful, you’re in my life
Incredible that you are mine
So beautiful you give me light
You bring me joy, you bring me sight

You helped me see
The woman that I know I am but always was afraid to be
You showed me how
How to live every moment like it’s the last
And be all that I am
You’re so beautiful

So beautiful, you make me smile
So wonderful, you’re in my life
Incredible that you are mine
So beautiful you give me light
You bring me joy, you bring me sight
You’re so so so beautiful, baby
