Surely the anthem has already been written...

Baby look at me and tell me what you see
You aint seen the best of me yet
Give me time, I'll make you forget the rest
I got more in me
and you can set it free
I can hold the world in my hand
Don't you know who I am (remember my name)
I'm gonna live forever
Light up the sky like a flame (fame)
I'm gonna make it to heaven
So baby remember my name
Remember remember remember remember

Jodie O'Regan - not not not a blood relation of Emlyn.
P.S. I'm not 100% sure of these lyrics. But if you can pick the mistakes, do
you really want everyone to know???
