Faking Cool

From we aren't kids anymore All theatre kids can relate to feeling like they are putting on a mask. This song is about the times people think something of us, but it turns out they are so wrong.

Danny & Andrew

From we aren't kids anymore This is a quirky, clunky, silly song perfect for a cabaret, concert, or audition.

I'll Stick Around

From we aren't kids anymore This song serves as a promise to live, live, live, live, live.

Turn the Page

From we aren't kids anymore This is a fierce pop number. A passionate plea asking an ex to move on so that you can also move on. Originally sung by Be More Chill's Tiffany Mann at 54 Below, and then by Tony Nominee Lilli Cooper on the cast album.   Key of F

On and On and On

I'm Not Falling For That

From we aren't kids anymore An explosive tenor pop/rock stand-alone about a relationship on the brink of destruction.

Originally sung at 54 Below by Dear Evan Hansen's Will Roland then on the cast album by Broadway's Raymond J Lee.   Key of Bb

Hello, My Name is Drew

From we aren't kids anymore A bouncy group number. This song is the anthem for artists who feel misunderstood, and it's told through the lens of writer Drew Gasparini. This song is the opening number from Drew's semi-autobiographical song-cycle "We Aren't Kids Anymore" and was originally sung by Colton Ryan, Bonnie Miligan, Lilli Cooper, Nicholas Christopher, and Raymond J Lee....

What the Hell am I Doing with My Life

From we aren't kids anymore Another anthem for the artistic at heart. An existential breakdown wrapped up in a pop/rock theatre song.  This song is best as a group number with split up solos, but can be done as a stand-alone solo song as well.  Ethan Slater from Spongebob first sang this song at 54 Below in 2018.   Key...

Something Good

From we aren't kids anymore This is a song about a friendship that is fading away. Someone hanging onto their friend who has changed because there's still a glimpse of something good.  A perfect song for auditions, cabaret, concerts, or anywhere you would sing a stand alone.   Key of A
