Track Name: Breaking News
Breaking news from the NFL
I just fell on my face
I get back up as the cheerleaders yell
And catch a pass with grace

We are not all-stars
But we put the effort in
We may not be perfect
But we try again and again

Breaking news from the NBA
My free throws really stunk
But on the next play I start a break
Then make a windmill dunk

We are not all-stars
But we put the effort in
We may not be perfect
But we try again and again

Wa wa wa woopsie
Everybody makes mistakes
Wa wa wa what should we do?
Practice is what it takes

Breaking news from MLB
I just dropped a pop fly
But when I get to the batter's box
I hit it to the sky

We are not all-stars
But we put the effort in
We may not be perfect
But we try again and again

We are not all-stars
But we put the effort in
We may not be perfect
But we try again and again
Track Name: Focus On the Inside
You belong where your adventure starts

Focus on the Inside
Your heart is always true
Make your life the best ride
Look inside of you

New challenges are a scary place
It's like going to outer space
Face your fears and take your time
Things will work out fine

Focus on the Inside
Your heart is always true
Make your life the best ride
Look inside of you

Be yourself don't be afraid
Never let your spirit fade
Fears are bullies but you're a star
Shine bright that's who you are

Focus on the Inside
Your heart is always true
Make your life the best ride
Look inside of you

You belong where your adventure starts
Focus on the inside
