Track Name: Independent Life
I had a premonition
When you and I were opposition
It was a strange sensation
That we could form a coalition

After negotiation
To legitimise cohabitation
We had a champagne celebration
And imposed ourselves upon the nation

Ch
Now there’s a stranger in my bed
And I can’t get you from my head
When I’m awake I’m full of dread
Give me back my independent life instead

There was no consummation
And this became a situation
I gave an ultimatum
But all I got was aggravation

Publicly we seemed to function
But this was just a fabrication
And so we came to our conclusion
And agreed to have a devolution

Ch
Now there’s a stranger in my bed
And I can’t get you from my head
When I’m awake I’m full of dread
Give me back my independent life instead
Track Name: Olympic Champion
All the days the weeks the months the years have led you to this moment
You may have had some ups and downs but you never lost your focus
In the calm before the breaking storm there's no room for any doubt
There's a lion pacing in your heart and you can't wait to let it out

As you enter the arena the whole world is in slow motion
You know you're going to have to fight to fulfil your life's ambition
Push yourself beyond the max, blood sweat and tears, sinew and guts
Never stop until you're number one. You're an OLYMPIC CHAMPION!
