"My Declaration" as written by and Tom Baxter....
Gonna be someone, gonna give something,
I'm taking it on, I'm taking it on,
It's gonna be my life, so I'm gonna live each day and each night,
Taking it on, I'm taking it on

'Cause I can't keep hiding, I can't keep hiding, I can't keep running away
So I'm gonna be stronger, I'm gonna be better made, I'm gonna give everything,
Just to bring me back again.

I'm gonna be a braver soul than this,
I'm gonna jump at all those many chances that I've missed,
I'm gonna live my life beyond these fears and forms of cowardice that keep leading me on
I'm gonna shine out like a beacon in the night,
I'm gonna wrap my fingers round the stars tonight,
'Cause I'm taking it on, 'cause I'm taking it on...

I can't keep hiding, I can't keep hiding, I can't keep running away
So I'm gonna be stronger, I'm gonna be better made, I'm gonna give everything,
Just to bring me back again.
So I'm gonna be stronger, I'm gonna be understood and I'm gonna give everything
Just to bring me back again!

So I'm gonna be stronger and I'm gonna be better made, I'm gonna give everything,
Just to bring me back again...
'Cause I can't keep hiding, I can't keep hiding, I can't keep running away.

    Song MeaningThis song is wonderful! It's about deciding to come out of the shadows and show the world that you're not afraid, that you can be anything you want to be. It's about finally stepping forward and living your life instead of dreaming of what you wish it could be.

    I can't believe no one has commented on it yet!

    General CommentEliza Bennett sings a cover version of this song during the credits of "Inkheart". She has a good voice and its an amazing song too.
