GIRL: (SINGING) Don't need a king. I got my crown. Don't need a hero to lift me off the ground. I built this heart. It's beating loud. Won't let no bad blood ever bring us down.

BOY: (SINGING) Keep flying higher. Fight like a fighter. What if I'm everything that I will ever need?

GIRL: (SINGING) A queen messiah. A strong survivor. Even the worst days won't get the best of me.

CHORUS: (SINGING) 'Cause I was born to be brave. I know who I am inside, and I won't apologise. Made my mistakes. And they gave me wings to fly to my castle in the sky.

BOY: (SINGING) I used to feel like I was lost. It's like my phone's navigation was turned off.

CHORUS: (SINGING) But it's the road I stumbled on that led me right to the place where I belong.

Keep flying higher. Fight like a fighter. Yeah, I am everything that I was meant to be. A blazin' fire that's getting brighter. Don't need nobody here that don't believe in me.

'Cause I was born to be brave. I know who I am inside, and I won't apologise. Made my mistakes. And they gave me wings to fly to my castle in the sky. Let my hair down and let it go. No more running, I run this show. Way up here, yeah, the view is gold. Born to be brave. Now I'm standing miles high like castles in the sky.

Bosses and queens, stand up on your throne. Know who you are, this is your kingdom. Legends at heart, individuals. Go make your mark. Be original. Hey!
