Another Disney Song in Latin: Haec Sum Ego (This Is Me)

Well, I finally decided to translate a song into Latin that I've already translated into every other language of which I have a sufficient command. This is a singable adaptation of "This Is Me" from Disney's Camp Rock. As always, please do provide any critique you can offer to assure that the lyrics are grammatically and idiomatically sound. It will be greatly appreciated! To listen to the original song and read the English lyrics for comparison, go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj3fBWKrtrw

HAEC SUM EGO

A FEMINA CANTA:

Faciem occulēbam semper
Causā metūs.
Dīcere mundō qua putō
Timēbam adhūc.
Sed eī somniō
Quod manet in mē
Necesse est exprimī.
Nunc sīc
Id ēvulgō.
(Somnium ēvulgō)

Haec ergō
Sum ēgō,
Et in locum quī mē decet adveniō,
Mē illūstret lūx.
Iam hīc stō!
Ipsam mē
Invēnī.
Nōn potest continērī.
Nōn reprimō plūs hanc quae verē
Sum ēgō.

Ut intelligās spērō.
Vīvō sub tenebrīs.
Hāc causā semper somniō
Dē vītā illūstrī.
Quamvīs distāns sit,
Fīdere mī ipsī
Nunc oportet mē.
Modō hōc,
Tandem vincam sīc

Haec ergō
Sum ēgō,
Et in locum quī mē decet adveniō,
Mē illūstret lūx.
Iam hīc stō!
Ipsam mē
Invēnī.
Nōn potest continērī.
Nōn reprimō plūs hanc quae verē
Sum ēgō.

A VIRO CANTA:

Haec vox quae in mente mī canit
Est tua, et mī fert carmen.
Es mī petenda,
Mī invenienda.

Id quō caret hoc melōs
Comperiō iam in tē.
Es mī petenda,
Mī invenienda.

A FEMINA CANTA:
Haec ergō
Sum ēgō,
AB AMBOBUS CANTA:
Et in locum quī mē decet adveniō,
Mē illūstret lūx.
Iam hīc stō!
Ipsam/ipsum mē
Invēnī.
Nōn potest continērī.
Nōn reprimō plūs hanc/hunc quae/quī verē
Sum ēgō.

A VIRO CANTA:
