Hold my heart And let me start we’re oh so near Get up Get up Get up now We’ve come so far like a shining star let me in Get up Get up Get up now I’m a stone faced Ironman I’m a stone faced Ironman I’ve got no time To be standing here Waiting here I’m made of Iron, My hands are steel Stronger I can feel I show no pain Get up get up Get up now I’m a stone faced Ironman I’m a stone faced Ironman Get Up, Get up Get up now God fill my soul Keep us going on Hey God fill our souls Keep us going on Get up Get up Get up now Get up Get up Get up now My hands are steel Stronger I can feel I show no pain I ain’t got time For pain.

Are you ready to run Are you ready to scream Are you ready to fly Are you ready to dance Just keep moving, we don’t stop moving We just keep doing what we’re made for doing It feels so natural, I just need action To get me going, my freedom flowing A million lights shining bright In the southern night where the warriors fight I got an inside fire that just gets higher We don’t expire We’re gonna run, we’re gonna scream We’re gonna fly to the open sky We’re gonna climb higher and higher And we’ll meet you at the top We’ll meet you at the top

VERSE ONE Breathing deeper than I ever have before The whole worlds watching and I know this is my place I fought hard to be here, so many minutes so many hours I won’t let this moment go, I’m gonna take it all, gonna steal the show Nothings gonna stop me CHORUS I’m not afraid to live my destiny I’m not afraid to follow my only dream I’m breaking down the walls they built I’m doing the impossible Cos I’m not afraid I’m not afraid VERSE TWO I remember when everybody had a dream Superheroes, astronauts, all got lost it seems I’m still here, living for it, trying to be the most that I can be And I won’t stop, till I’m there, even if it takes every part of me I just gotta believe CHORUS I’m not afraid to live my destiny I’m not afraid to follow my only dream I’m breaking down the walls they built I’m doing the impossible Cos I’m not afraid I’m not afraid BRIDGE I’ve burned for this one moment my entire life With every step I get closer, I know this is my time

Theres a feeling that I get Its born a part of me It's strong and it's courageous and it helps me to believe It's a place full of magic It's mystical and free, leave your troubles behind and walk with me…. CHORUS And all the lights come shinning down And the rays they fall around And it makes a beautiful sound Tonight In a place where the sun meets the clouds up int he sky all the colours dance around us we get to watch them fly You ask If I remember the night I came to you You bought me to my Knees it;\'s true it's true it's true Because love is beautiful Love is great Love is keeping my soul awake Love is loyal and love is free Love will always come back to me Guitar solo Love is beautiful Love is great Love is keeping my soul awake Love is Loyal and love is free Love will always come back to me Chorus repeats 2 x

You set the pace as you ran that line You shed sweat and tears for the people of black and white You set the goals with an iron fist You lifted the weights that I could never lift, could never lift You are the miners of bronze, silver and gold Anxiously waiting for you to bring it all home But don’t you worry in time you’ll hear the sound The sound of yours truly your one nation’s crowd You run, not hide You swim and you climb Compose and define The perfect time to strike So bring it on, and we’ll bring it home So bring in on, bring it on For you it may be, I win, or I loose For all of us watching we don’t pick and choose Give it your all and make us all proud One of our own on the big stage with the big crowd You run, not hide You swim and you climb Compose and define The perfect time to strike So bring it on, and we’ll bring it home So bring it on, and we’ll bring it home Bring it on Bring it on You set the pace as you ran that line You shed sweat and tears for people in black and white

These are the five little rings That you've held in your dreams For so long This is the one little word That you said when it hurt And everything went wrong CHORUS: This is the flame and it passes It passes Over the ocean (F: Ah yeah, yeah, yeah) These our hands on our hearts, yes Our hearts, yeah And can you handle the emotion? (The emotion…ooo, ah yeah yeah yeah yeah) This is our fern it’s unfurled Right in front of the world As the silver lights flash "on" It’s the moments in gold: Faded sepia tones Remind us of all our heroes CHORUS I'll be all that I can And I will be Faster, higher Stronger Moving forward in peace Yeah, we will! Cos we believe In love This is our fern it’s unfurled Right in front of the world As the silver lights flash This is our fern it’s unfurled Right in front of the world As the silver lights flash "on" It’s the moments in gold: Faded sepia tones

The moon draws five rainbow rings They are calling me, And I start, Moving in time Though we are seasons apart, Never feel alone, We all think of you, As you rise to start Shooting stars, You will be, All of us, Believe in you Turning to gold Turning to gold Orange glow in the morn, I roll out of bed, But this moment makes, Early starts worthwhile Running through a field, Colours at my feet I’m like a Tui, Who’s just learnt to fly Turning to gold Turning to gold Shooting stars, You will be, All of us, Believe in you Turning to gold Turning to gold In the Summer twilight, Red horizons beam across London, I will shine on Turning to gold Turning to gold Turning to gold Shooting stars, You will be, All of us, Believe in you Turning to gold

From the land where white clouds are long Across many foreign oceans, down the road well-traveled and long Cities sail away across the green and blue You may be far from home but home’s never far from you Hope is rising, eyes are turning, here we come And it’s a long way to go but we’re coming home, we’re coming home And it’s a long way to go but we’re coming home, we’re coming home At the end when the race is run Hear the sound of a nation rising up with their hearts as one See the heroes of old adorned with bronze and gold We may be small but we’re strong and we’re here so bold Hope is rising, eyes are turning, here we come, here we come And it’s a long way to go but we’re coming home, we’re coming home And it’s a long way to go but we’re coming home, we’re coming home So rise up and take your place The world is your stage, the world is our stage It’s our time and it’s our place, here we come And it’s a long way to go but we’re coming home, we’re coming home And it’s a long way to go but we’re coming home, we’re coming home

The Road it seemed so long, the burdens on your shoulders helped to make you strong. Remember all the times you cried, this is when your tears of pain are turned to tears of pride. This is our moment, this is our time, this is what we've waited for and wanted all our lives. There's no second shot so leave your doubts behind, now we're making history, this is where we shine. This is our time. The stars are moving so fast, one second they're here above you and the next they're in the past. They have always known where they should be, our future is uncertain, what should we believe? This is our moment, this is our time, this is what we've waited for and wanted all our lives. There's no second shot so leave your doubts behind, now we're making history, this is where we shine. This is our time.

May you have the wind behind you And remember us back home We who think the whole world of you And would do anything to bring you home You know we all want to tell you How we hold you in our hearts And give you hope and inspiration An anthem of a sort Lift yourself up Lift yourself up Coming from nothing what you got to lose? I’m aiming for you Will you keep me deep inside you When you wander far from home If you think there’s nothing left here There’s us to keep you strong I have learnt to love these islands It’s a part of who I am And I know you will return here Winners, losers – all as one Chorus You know what you have to do You’ve almost held it in your hands Beneath the southern cross And under southern skies Stars come out one by one Chorus

We’re Aotearoa, land of the long white cloud, And although we’re very small, we’re a nation that is proud. We’re reaching for the stars, a nation that believes, We’re rising to the top, a nation that achieves. Chorus And so it’s black, black on top, New Zealand’s on the move, Black, black on top, New Zealand’s in the groove. And so it’s black, black on top, The black shirts shining bold. Black, black on top, We’re going for the gold. We believe in ourselves, and we will do our best, We know we’ve done the work, we’re going to stand the test. And now the time has come, for New Zealand to advance, Time to make our move, time to take our chance. Chorus
