Stormzy's Tracy Beaker Lyrics Featured In 'Superheroes'
I can make my world come true
All my dreams will see me through
And if that won't get me down
My dreams will turn things all around
With a smile upon my face
I can see a better place
Doesn't matter what will come my way
Believe me now, I will win someday
