Sonic Adventure DX Music Tails (Believe in Myself)
When all alone in my chair, I just go about wishin'
I wanna be strong, I really wanna be trusted When all alone in my bed, I just go about yearnin' I wanna be cool, I also wanna be like him But that's not somethin' I can do so easily
This is not simply my way, my style Gotta get a hold of my life I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens Somebody will be Waiting for me so I have gotta fly higher Gotta keep goin' Everything is a brand new challenge for me I will believe in myself This is the only start for me When all alone in my sleep
I just go about dreamin' I see myself there, having the same adventure If I just follow you, I will not see the light
Now's the time to find my way through this life I'm tryin' so hard to be strong I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens Somebody will be Waiting for me so I have gotta fly higher Gotta keep going Everything is a brand new challenge for me I will believe in myself This is the only start for me [Guitar solo]
Many friends help me out
In return I help them Certain things I can do, and there's things that only I can do No one's alone
I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens Somebody will be Waiting for me so I have gotta fly higher Gotta keep goin' Everything is a brand new challenge for me I will believe in myself This is the only start for me, me, me
