All That I Can Be

“I believe there is nothing more important than doing what you love because success and true happiness will always follow. It’s about reconnecting with the inspired, joyous child within each of us to find meaning and purpose. We can make an enormous difference.” Tania de Jong AM, Founder and Chair, Creativity Australia


All That I Can Be is a theme song for Creativity Australia.

All That I Can Be
Lyrics by Tania de Jong, Music by Stefan Cassomenos

As a child I sang without a care
My dreams were big and there was love to spare
Anything could be mine
The stars in the sky, the fish in the sea
It really was the best of times
And I was all that I could be.

Now I wonder what’s happened to me
I’ve come so far, what does it all mean?
I gotta do what matters to me
‘Cos life’s too short
I gotta do what matters to me, so I can be free
And be all that I can be.

(Chorus)
Free my mind
Open my heart
Let me shine and feel my light 
Sing my songs
Feel my fears
Dream my dreams and cry my tears 
Don’t give up
You can try
Find the spark and you will fly 
I am strong
I am free
I am all that I can be!

Time goes past and here we are
Stuck on the train or in the car
But whatever happened to me?
I crossed my t’s and dotted my i’s
And I go through my days and I hardly feel a thing.

Now I wonder what’s happened to me
I’ve come so far, what does it all mean?
I gotta do what matters to me
‘Cos life’s too short
I gotta do what matters to me, so I can be free
And be all that I can be.

And now I feel the winds of change
For once I think I’ve balanced my brain
At last my heart is free, I can sing again
My dreams are big and life is good again
And I am all that I can be.

Now I know what’s happened to me
I’ve found my own creativity
And I can see what everything means
‘Cos life’s too short
I will do what matters to me, so I can be free
And be all that I can be.

(Chorus)
