Tracklist and Lyrics

1. Small World
Written by: Ross Golan & Greg Wells

I’m standing in the field
My feet lift off the ground
No one here will see me
No one will hurt me now

I’m brushing off the rain
While climbing through the clouds
Nobody can see me
No one can hurt me now

Goodbye, gravity
Goodbye, enemies
I’m going up to a place where the world is small
Where I can fly above it all
If I don’t make it, sing my song
From here I’m weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
And the world is small

Still rising towards the dark
Don’t care what’s down below
‘Cause no one can see me
And no one has to know

The atmosphere is lonely
And beautiful
I don’t miss a thing I used to know
I used to know

Goodbye, gravity
Goodbye, enemies
I’m going up to a place where the world is small
Where I can fly above it all
If I don’t make it, sing my song
From here I’m weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
I feel so tall

If there’s nothing to break my fall
It’s OK, I’ve seen it all
And maybe I was always small
But I could fly before I crawled

If I don’t make it, sing my song
From here I’m weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
And the world is small

2. Like Lightning
Written by: Idina Menzel, Audra Mae, Eric Rosse

Looking for a girl I used to know
She used to walk these city streets
Going anywhere the wind would blow
She used to look a bit like me

Someday I’m gonna find her again
And I’m gonna tell her the truth
Shake her by the shoulders
Make her see nobody’s fireproof

Just live and learn
You will get burned
But you’ll get your turn
If you keep fighting

All my life is lighting up in front of me
All this time I thought that I was running to the sun
Seems that I’m the only one too blind to see
The fire inside me, like lightning
Trying to get out
All my life

Looking for a sign along the way
Dying to finally get back home
And I’m forever trying to keep the faith
Praying but it’s a lonely road

Hope is a lesson I’ve learned
Hope is the best way to burn
And I’ll get my turn
If I keep fighting

All my life is lighting up in front of me
All this time I thought that I was running to the sun
Seems that I’m the only one too blind to see
The fire inside me, like lightning
Trying to get out
All my life

All my life

I’m gonna find that girl somehow
I’m gonna finally ignite
What would the future me say now
I wanna know, am I gonna turn out all right?

All my life is lighting up in front of me
All this time I thought that I was running to the sun
Seems that I’m the only one too blind to see
The fire inside me, like lightning
Like lightning
Like lightning

Seems that I’m the only one too blind to see
The fire inside me, like lightning
Trying to get out
All my life

03. Queen of Swords
Written by: Idina Menzel, Ferras Alqaisi, Sarah Hudson, Greg Wells

You mistake my passion for anger
Should I sit polite in the silence
So quick in pointing the finger
I got sick of taking the blame
If there’s a price to pay for your acceptance
A sacrifice for your judgment
I guess I had to learn a lesson
Now I’m not afraid to say

I can be like a raging storm
Don’t go asking me for apologies
I’ll sing ’till you hear my song
This time you better believe that there’s no way
I’m holding back anymore
I’m slaying like the queen of swords

I’m slaying like the queen of swords

I can be delicate as a flower
Or a warrior on a throne
Isn’t life for us to devour
Even if we do it alone
When I look into the future
And see my story in the cards
Some days it’s hard and the truth hurts
But I’d never trade my broken heart

I can be like a raging storm
Don’t go asking me for apologies
I’ll sing ’till you hear my song
This time you better believe that there’s
No way I’m holding back anymore
I’m slaying like the queen of swords

I’m slaying like the queen of swords

I’m slaying like the queen of swords

I can be like a raging storm
(Don’t go asking me for apologies)
I can sing ’till you hear my song
(This time you better believe that there’s)
There’s no way I’m holding back anymore
I’m slaying like the queen of swords

I’m slaying like the queen of swords

I’m gonna live to seize the moment
Leaving nothing left unsaid
I’m standing here wide open
This queen has no regrets

I’m slaying like the queen of swords

I’m slaying like the queen of swords

04. I See You
Written by: Andy Hollander, Matt Morris, Dana Parish

I lie awake looking back
God knows this life goes fast
Each day harder than the last
Breaking down in the dark
I don’t know how I fell this far from heaven
Can’t put the pieces back together
So you lie there and dream

Here’s to the lonely
To the broken-hearted
I want you to know I feel your pain
Here’s to the hopeless
The almost forgotten
To those who got lost along the way
I see you
I see you
I see you

City streets and no one sees
We all just try to make believe
That it’s all better than it seems
Black and white we color in
We see the world the way we wanna see it
You either take it or you leave it
Is it all just a dream

Here’s to the lonely
To the broken-hearted
I want you to know I feel your pain
Here’s to the hopeless
The almost forgotten
To those who got lost along the way
I see you
I see you
I see you
(I see you)

When you’re alone
And you can’t go back home
At the end of the day (I see you)
I’ll remember your face

Here’s to the lonely
To the broken-hearted
I want you to know, I know, I feel your pain
Here’s to the hopeless
The almost forgotten
To those who got lost along the way
I see you
I see you

05. Everybody Knows
Written by: Greg Wells, Stephen Wrabel

I can feel you breathe
Hear your heartbeat
I love the sound, I’m hearing it loud
I don’t wanna sleep
If I’m dreaming, I’ll miss tonight

Oh, found the piece, the missing part
Found the hands to heal these broken bones
You’re the key to start my heart
It’s beating loud so everybody knows

Hold me like a fire
Under you I can’t feel the rain, I can’t feel the pain
Make what’s left all right
Take what’s broken and build it again

Oh, found the piece, the missing part
Found the hands to heal these broken bones
You’re the key to start my heart
It’s beating loud so everybody knows

Be the light that you are
Shine like fire in my heart
Hold me tight in the dark
Oh my God, I can feel it

Be the light that you are
Shine like fire in my heart
Hold me tight in the dark
Oh my God, I can feel it

Be the light that you are
Shine like fire in my heart
Hold me tight in the dark
Oh my God, I can feel it

Oh, found the piece, the missing part
Found the hands to heal these broken bones
You’re the key to start my heart
It’s beating loud so everybody knows

Oh, found the piece, the missing part
Found the hands to heal these broken bones
You’re the key to start my heart
It’s beating loud so everybody knows

06. Show Me
Written by: Idina Menzel, James Abrahart, Greg Wells

Heaven knows I went through hell
Trying to trust somebody else
I had all but given up
Cause I was never quite enough

Couldn’t tell I was going under
Suddenly, suddenly that water
Pulls you in, pulls you down
Balancing on a tightrope wire
Building walls, building walls up higher
Until you, until now

Baby, I feel it deep down in my bones
There’s a part of me no one else has known
When you look, I’m afraid of what you’ll see
But you say show me, you say show me

And I know you can see into my soul
To the part of me no one else has known
When you look in my eyes, I do believe
I can show me, I can show me

Breathing in and breathing out
I won’t look back and won’t look down
All the mess that came before
Set me up for something more

Couldn’t tell I was going under
Suddenly, suddenly that water
Pulls you in, pulls you down
Balancing on a tightrope wire
Building walls, building walls up higher
Until you, until now

Baby, I feel it deep down in my bones
There’s a part of me no one else has known
When you look, I’m afraid of what you’ll see
But you say show me, you say show me

And I know you can see into my soul
To the part of me no one else has known
When you look in my eyes, I do believe
I can show me, I can show me

Baby, I’ll leave it all out on the floor
(I can show, I can show)
Cause the past, it won’t break me anymore
(I can show, I can show)
When you look in my eyes (I can show, I can show)
I do believe (I can show, I can show)
I can show me (I can show, I can show)
I can show (I can show, I can show)

Baby, I feel it deep down in my bones
(Deep down in my soul)
There’s a part of me no one else has known
(No one else has known)
When you look, I’m afraid of what you’ll see (Oooh)
But you say show me, you say show me (Oooh)

And I know you can see into my soul (see into my soul)
To the part of me no one else has known
When you look in my eyes, I do believe
That you say show me (show me)
And you say show me
I can show me (Oooh)
I can show me

I can show me (I can show me)
I will show me

07. Last Time
Written by: Idina Menzel, Eric Rosse, Sasha Sloan

I’m sorry if I wasn’t there
Or acted like I didn’t care
You were always there for me
Seeing what I couldn’t see

I’m sorry if you felt alone
I should’ve called, I should’ve known
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
To get just one more day with you

So don’t let the last time I hurt you
Be the last time I heard you
Don’t let the last time I held you
Be the last time I felt you

Wouldn’t let you get away
If I had another day
Don’t let the last time I saw you
Be the last time
Be the last time

I’m sorry if I got too loud
Or if I didn’t make you proud
You always gave me what you could
When I was wrong you understood

Sorry if I made you mad
If I could I’d take it back
You’re not where I thought you’d be
But you’ll always be a part of me

So don’t let the last time I hurt you
Be the last time I heard you
Don’t let the last time I held you
Be the last time I felt you

Wouldn’t let you get away
If I had another day
So don’t let the last time I saw you
Be the last time
Be the last time

So don’t let the last time I hurt you
Be the last time I heard you
Don’t let the last time I held you
Be the last time I felt you

Wouldn’t let you get away
If I had another day
So don’t let the last time I saw you
Be the last time
So don’t let the last time I saw you
Be the last time
Be the last time
Be the last time

08. I Do
Written by: Idina Menzel, Eric Rosse, Sasha Sloan

I got the picket fence
I got the perfect shiny stone
It don’t make any sense
Here, but nobody’s home

Used to tell you every little thing about me
You would swear that you could never live without me
Well we said, we said, we said, we said
We said a lot of things
We said a lot of things

For worse or for better
Forever and ever
I do, I do, I do
In health and in sickness
As God is my witness
I do, I do, I do

Remember you told me
You’re my one and only
I don’t wanna be here
I think I should leave here
I do, I do, I do

I got the pretty dress
I got the memories in a frame
It don’t make any sense
Cause those people are us, but they’re just not the same

I’d do anything I could not to lose this
But I look at you and I know what the truth is
Yeah, we said, we said, we said, we said
We said a lot of things
Didn’t mean anything

For worse or for better
Forever and ever
I do, I do, I do
In health and in sickness
As God is my witness
I do, I do, I do

Remember you told me
You’re my one and only
I don’t wanna be here
I think I should leave here
I do, I do, I do

We closed our eyes
And we made our wishes
But in real life
You can’t always fix it

For worse or for better
Forever and ever
I do, oh
In health and in sickness
As God is my witness
I do

For worse or for better
Forever and ever
I do, I do, I do (I do!)
In health and in sickness
As God is my witness
I do, I do, I do

Remember you told me
You’re my one and only
I don’t wanna be here
I think I should leave here
I do, I do, I do

I do, I do, I do
I do, I do, I do

09. Cake
Written by: Idina Menzel, Shelly Peiken, Greg Wells

One man’s drama is another man’s dream
One man’s torture is another man’s treat
One man’s trophy is another’s mistake
One man’s poison is another man’s cake
I’m another man’s cake
Listen up

I can thank you for
For believing I was trouble
I can thank you for
The bitterness you showed me
I can thank you for
The freedom that I didn’t ask for
Roses and thorns
Stealing in my smile

One man’s drama is another man’s dream
One man’s torture is another man’s treat
One man’s trophy is another’s mistake
One man’s poison is another man’s cake
Yeah, I’m another man’s cake

See he treats me like
I’m a beautiful disaster
And he treats me like
I’m all he’s ever asked for
See beauty’s in the eyes
The eyes of the beholder
Silver linings
And everything after

One man’s drama is another man’s dream
One man’s torture is another man’s treat
One man’s trophy is another’s mistake
One man’s poison is another man’s cake
Yeah, I’m another man’s cake
I’m another man’s cake

I’m hard to handle, well
It’s not a crime
I’m hard to handle
It’s a state of mind
To each his own and he
He thinks I’m fine
Baby, let’s face it I’ve wasted your time

One man’s drama is another man’s dream (oh my)
One man’s torture is another man’s treat (is another mistake)
One man’s trophy is another’s mistake
One man’s poison is another man’s cake
Yeah, I’m another man’s cake (I’m another man
I’m another man’s cake)
Yeah, I’m another man’s cake

10. Extraordinary
Written by: Idina Menzel, Lindy Robbins, Greg Wells

I probably had a bit too much to drink
It’s a little after midnight you were probably asleep
I bet that you’re surprised to hear from me

I still have your number memorized
I know it’s been eight years
But I still got these butterflies
I know it might sound crazy

And you might be married
And you might have moved on
But I have to ask before my nerve is gone

Cause I always wondered
If we could have been something
Or is it all in my mind and
I always wondered
If I might have missed something
That we left behind and
Do you ever think of me
And have you wondered could we be
Something extraordinary

I still remember how you looked at me
You took me in like there was no where else you’d rather be
And you made me feel beautiful

I made a lot of mistakes
I’m not a kid anymore
But I never forget that I could have been yours

Cause I always wondered
If we could have been something
Or is it all in my mind and
I always wondered
If I might have missed something
That we left behind and
Do you ever think of me
And have you wondered could we be
Something extraordinary

I never forgot the way you kissed me
I never forgot the way you touched me
And once I thought I heard you say
You love me

I always wonder
If we could’ve have been something
Or is it all in my mind and
I always wonder
If I might have missed something
That we left behind and
I never told you
That you’ve been the one thing I held onto all this time
And do you ever think of me
And have you wondered could we be
Something extraordinary
Extraordinary

11. Perfect Story
Written by: Idina Menzel, Greg Wells, Nina Woodford

Jack and Jill went up the hill, a bucket full of dreams
When the morning came, they carved their names into the cherry tree
But the hill was built on quicksand and it all came tumblin’ down
So they held onto the only thing they couldn’t live without

And here you are the best of us
With a bigger heart than the rest of us

I’m so sorry
I couldn’t give you the perfect story
A textbook happy ending
Where nobody here gets hurt

But don’t you worry
Your daddy and your mommy
May be a little broken
But not our love for you
Oh our love for you
Can move the Earth

When London bridge came falling down, I saw you through the flames
And for a second I convinced myself, it’s better if I stay
But what would you have thought of love if you had watched us burn
Would you grow up and think a bridge on fire is what you deserve

And here you are the best of us
With a bigger heart than the rest of us

I’m so sorry
I couldn’t give you the perfect story
A textbook happy ending
Where nobody here gets hurt

But don’t you worry
Your daddy and your mommy
May be a little broken
But not our love for you
Oh our love for you
Can move the Earth
Oh the Earth

And I never had to wonder
I don’t regret what we’ve been through
Don’t have to look no further
The answer’s here, it’s you

12. Nothin In This World
Written by: Idina Menzel, Connor Pledger, Eric Rosse

Later on, when the embers cool down
When I catch my breath and look around
You were right beside me

Slow dance in the middle of a hurricane
Every worry that I had, every little pain
They just fade inside me

Lost you once, I’ll take the blame
Climb that hill, I’ll take the rain
Baby, I’m not letting go this time

After all is said and done
Baby, you’re my setting sun
When we walk through fire
We’ll be fine

Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
No, nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you

I remember back when the levee broke
And the words just flowed, I didn’t choke
It took us too long to get it right

Still feel that aching in my heart
The aftershock and the echo starts
Somehow we made it through the night

Lost you once, I’ll take the blame
Climb that hill, I’ll take the rain
Baby, I’m not letting go this time

After all is said and done
Baby, you’re my setting sun
When we walk through fire
We’ll be fine

Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
No, nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you

Through fire, through fighting, the weight of this life
Regrets are emotion with not enough time
Don’t wanna lose you like ships in the night

Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
No, nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
No, nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you

Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you
Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you

Through fire, through fighting
Nothin’ in this world’s gonna keep me from you

13. Bitter Core (Target Edition Bonus Track)
Written by: Idina Menzel, Audra Mae, Eric Rosse

Fair warning, I’m no walk in the park
I’m just sayin’, I’m all broken apart
And I know you think you love me
But I’ve shown you only little bits and pieces

And my story
Breaks your heart in a way
And I worry
When you tell me you’ll stay
Cause you’re in way over your head
And I never wanna regret this feeling
Just so revealing

Love me with my crown on the floor
My wings broken off
One eye on the door
I got this crooked halo
And walls made of thorns
Surrounding my heart
But crying for more
If you’re gonna love me
Won’t you love me to the bitter core

Believe me,
I don’t want you to go
I’m not leaving
I just need you to know
That sometimes I just lose it
And it’s not that you deserve it
Trust me
It’s all or nothing, baby

Won’t you love me with my crown on the floor
My wings broken off
One eye on the door
I got this crooked halo
And walls made of thorns
Surrounding my heart
But crying for more
If you’re gonna love me
Won’t you love me to the bitter core

And I’m no queen
I don’t pretend to be
And I messed up royally
So, if it’s meant to be

Love me with my crown on the floor
My wings broken off
One eye on the door
I got this crooked halo
And walls made of thorns
Surrounding my heart
But crying for more
If you’re gonna love me
Won’t you love me to the bitter core
(Love me)
Please love me to the bitter core
(Love me)
Please love me to the bitter core

14. Stronger Than Hate (Target Edition Bonus Track)
Written by: Angela Lauer, Butterfly Boucher, Jamie Moore

Feels like poison
Tastes like bitter wine
Sounds like trouble
Looks like wasted time
Have we lost our minds?

You’ve got the hands that can start a fight
You’ve got the power to make it right
We’ve got hearts on the line
Can you feel it?
Do you feel it?
So many words that don’t mean a thing
Somebody somewhere has got to change
Take it all away
Take your love
Make it stronger than hate

Temper, temper
Always on the rise
Anger is just sadness in disguise
Open your eyes

You’ve got the hands that can start a fight
You’ve got the power to make it right
We’ve got hearts on the line
Can you feel it?
Do you feel it?
So many words that don’t mean a thing
Somebody somewhere has got to change
Take it all away
Take your love
Make it stronger than hate

I wanna feel it
I wanna hear your love
I wanna taste it
I wanna see it

So many words that don’t mean a thing
Somebody somewhere has got to change
We’ve got hearts on the line
Can you feel it?
Do you feel it?
So many words that don’t mean a thing
Somebody somewhere has got to change
Take it all away (take it all away)
Take your love
Make it stronger than hate
You’ve got the hands that can start a fight
You’ve got the power to make it right
We’ve got hearts on the line
Can you feel it?
Do you feel it?
So many words that don’t mean a thing
Somebody somewhere has got to change
Take it all away
Take your love (make it stronger)
Make it stronger than hate

15. Blind (Japanese Edition Bonus Track)
Written by: Idina Menzel, Dana Parish, Andy Hollander

You say I’m a mess
I call it the truth
You say I’m a wreck
I don’t know what to do about you

Don’t need to read your mind
Cause I know what you think about me
We wasted too much time
I guess I unravel slowly

And I was never kind
Or good enough for you
But you were blind

See what you wanna see
You never found the heart of me
So you just said goodbye

Saw a little boy
Taking on the world
Blocking out the noise
Running from what hurt the most

But I believed in you
Kept you close, you never noticed
No matter what I do
You can’t forgive, you can’t forget

Said I was never kind
Or good enough for you
But you were blind

See what you wanna see
You never found the heart of me
So you just said goodbye

Never, ever, ever gonna let you back inside my head
Cause now I’m not afraid to say the words I always wish I’d said
No, no, no, no, no

Never, ever, ever gonna let you have this piece of me that’s left
Never, ever, ever gonna let you back inside my head

Cause I was always kind
And good enough for you
But you were blind

See what you wanna see
You never found the heart of me
And now I say goodbye
