  • I've seen it all a thousand times
    Falling down I'm still alive, am I? Am I?
    So hard to breathe when the water's high
    No need to swim I'll learn to fly, so high, so high
    You find the truth in a child's eyes
    When the only limit is the sky
    Living proof I see myself in you

    When walls starts to close in
    Your heart is frozen over
    Just show 'em what you're made of
    When sun light is fading
    The world will be waiting for you
    Just show 'em what you're made of

    Gloves are off, ready to fight
    Like a lion I will survive.
    Will I? Will I?
    You gotta stand for something
    Even if you stand alone, don't be afraid
    It's gonna be alright

    You find the truth in a child's eyes
    When the only limit is the sky (woo, woo, woo)
    Living proof I see myself in you, (oh)

    When walls starts to close in
    Your heart is frozen over
    Just show 'em what you're made of
    When sun light is fading
    The world will be waiting for you
    Just show 'em what you're made of
    (Just show 'em what you're made of)

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh,
    (Just show 'em what you're made of) ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
    (Just show 'em what you're made of)

    You find the truth in a child's eyes
    When the only limit is the sky
    Living proof I see myself in you

    When walls starts to close in
    Your heart is frozen over
    Just show 'em what you're made of
    (You can show 'em what you're made of!)
    When sun light is fading
    The world will be waiting for you
    (For you, for you!)
    Just show 'em what you're made of
    (You can show 'em what you're made of)

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh,
    (Just show 'em what you're made of) ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Just show 'em what you're made of Writer/s: AJ MCLEAN, KEVIN RICHARDSON, MIKA GUILLORY, MORGAN TAYLOR REID
