Lyrics to English Adaptation of Younha's "Audition Time2Rock  
I've written English lyrics to Younha's 2007 Korean debut single "Audition Time2Rock, and I'm looking for someone who would be willing to sing them for me because I love this song to pieces, but I can't carry a tune to save my life. 

Although I tended to stray from the direct translation of the original lyrics, partly because I'm writing this for a character in a story I'm writing), I feel like I still captured the general message of the song pretty well.

Here is a demo (with my extremely atrocious vocals, ONLY so that you can get a feel of how the lyrics flow, and definitely NOT because I should actually be singing this song)




If you would like to sing these lyrics (because I'm pretty sure just about anyone could do better then me) please either send an clip of you singing the FIRST CHORUS of this song to cr1st3ll3@gmail.com or leave a video response to this video with that recording if you have an account on Youtube. The deadline for all auditions is August 7th 2010, so please send them in as soon as possible. If you have any questions or problems uploading stuff, please feel free to leave a comment here :) 

Here are the lyrics for your reference: *the part you need to sing for auditions is BOLDED.

No more ordinary days.
Not for me.
My heart’s fighting to break free.

Seventeen years worth of boundaries
I don’t want lines
No more wasting time

Why- can’t you see?
I’m- chasing down my dream
And one day I’ll be
Singing on the big screen

Time to rock!
Ready go!
In perfect
Harmony
Out the window with all those silly woes
Now that I can
Relax and
Let it go
See my dawn
Just beyond the horizon
You cannot deny
That I am
I’m the one and the only


Now there’s judgment in their eyes
I’m not scared
Why the hell would I even care?

Just gimme a map and I’ll be on my way
No matter how far
I’m gonna be a star

Don’t dare forget
This name you’ll hear of yet
On the radio
Announcing my big show

Time 2 rock!
Ready go!
Pitch perfect
Melody
One step on that stage and all my doubts are gone
I’m feeling fine
Cue the lights
Let it go!
Listen up
The piano’s singing
Can’t you see that I’m
So alive
And now I’m gonna shine

Good bye bye my tears
Good bye bye my fears

I’m just unstoppable now

Time 2 rock!
Ready go!
Pitch perfect
Melody
One step on that stage and all my doubts are gone
I’m feeling fine
Cue the lights
Let it go!
Listen up
The piano’s singing
Can’t you see that I’m
So alive
And now I’m gonna shine

I’m feeling fine
Cue the lights
Let it go!
Listen up
The piano’s singing
Can’t you see that I’m
So alive
And now I’m gonna shine
