See the sword hang over my head Tied my fate to the weight of this thread How in God’s name could we let These rivers run so red today Damocles I see what you’ve seen The price to pay for daring to dream Accusations everywhere I wont play electric chairs today I need a friend, somebody I can run to I need a friend just like you I need a friend, somebody I can talk to I need a friend like you There’s a king living in everyone Gather round bring your gifts or your guns See the battle up ahead We can die or fight instead today I need a friend, somebody I can run to I need a friend just like you I need a friend, somebody I can talk to I need a friend like you Everybody needs something Everybody got needs Everybody needs someone Everybody got needs I need a friend, somebody I can run to I need a friend just like you I need a friend, somebody I can talk to I need a friend like you

Yes I know I should not do this I wonder why my heartʼs so foolish Itʼs my weakness for temptation Thatʼs led me to this situation If thereʼs a reason for refusing Itʼs just not one Iʼm good at choosing I know suspicion around me is growing Thereʼs only one way this is going to end Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance From you Let me go, you know I need to Yes I know you see through My intention unfit to mention Itʼs late, itʼs late, itʼs late And I really should be on my way To higher ground Be safe and sound away, away, away, away Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance From you From you, from you I try to walk away, I walk away from you I try to look away, I walk away from you From you, from you, from you, from you Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance I’ve no resistance I’ve no resistance from you I’ve no resistance From you, from you, from you, from you.

The proof is on the skin A lifetime of bruises I’m tired of giving in So no more excuses Don’t think I won’t walk away Don’t think that everything’s okay Don’t think I won’t start again The paleness of the skin It tells me it’s time to Let the sunshine in It tells me it’s time to go Get out of this hole Don’t think I won’t walk away Don’t think that everything’s okay Don’t think I won’t start again I did it once and I can do it again The heart’s a volunteer Sometimes it’s lost, sometimes it steers The heart can learn to change So don’t think I won’t start again Don’t think I won’t walk away Don’t think that everything’s okay Don’t think I won’t start again I did it once and I can do it again Don’t think I won’t walk away Don’t think that everything’s okay Don’t think I won’t start again Don’t think I won’t start again

Are you ready to start, are you ready to go Could you blow the whistle loud enough to wake up the world Hey hey and seize a brand new opportunity Hey hey but don’t forget to leave some room for me. Are you ready to listen, are you ready to roll There’s a conversation missing from your side of the road Hey hey, yeah there’s a voice that needs some harmony Hey hey, yeah there’s a voice that wants to say Listen to me Listen to me Are you ready to sing, are you ready to shout Could you spare a little secret, could you let it all out Hey hey I know there’s something you can share with me So blow the whistle and reveal All those sins tonight It could ease your mind You’ll find a lighter chest can breathe more easily Hey hey right now I want to hear you say Listen to me Listen to me

Praying hands, open hearts, yeah Reaching out the stars Will we stand or fall apart Beneath our skin full of scars We’re all the same Two sides of one game It’s like musical chairs One world to share Another time and maybe I’d Find myself in your shoes The subtleties of geography Decides who wins or if you lose We’re all the same Two sides one game It’s like musical chairs One world to share Now I stare around and wonder Who made all these walls How did we end up out here When outside is no side at all. We’re all the same Two sides one game It’s like musical chairs One world to share

Crying in silence Living in pain Dreading the mornings All i’ve done was in vain More disappointment Than i could ever explain I have not shed tears yet But they're on their way I should leave these thoughts behind I just need a little time Cause you hurt me so By giving me hope And then letting me down Now i’m better while you’re not around While you’re not around Leaving my memories In the back on my mind Only to recall them To feel the power of time It changes your opinion Makes you have doubts Whilst I run out of patience A fire has to burn out i should leave these thoughts behind i just need a little time Cause you hurt me so By giving me hope And then letting me down Now i’m better while you’re not around While you’re not around Oh it’s funny isn’t it The way you’re messing with me Leaving me to wonder What you think you need Why the hell did you make me wait Like a flower wait for rain You were my sunshine Now you’re just a stain of the back of my mind That i can’t rub away You’re the scar on the face Of a wounded soldier I should leave these thoughts behind I just need a little time Cause you hurt me so By giving me hope And then letting me down Now i’m better while you’re not around While you’re not around

When I was twelve I thought I’d be King of the world by twenty three Aye aye But then one day I closed my eyes And found a world that lives inside Now I… I feel free I’m in a maze, you’d be amazed How deep it’s getting day by day Aye aye It never stops it never ends But it’s Okay cause I’ve got friends That’s why.. I feel free, no walls around me I feel, I feel, I feel free No walls around me No rules to break or bend I hope tonight don’t end I hope tonight don’t end Peculiarly I found a theme That’s ringing out inside my dreams Aye aye Its like the echo of a song Sung before the world ‘got born’ Now I.. It’s hypnotised me Lit the lights inside me Now I don't recognise me. Aye, aye, aye.. I feel free, no walls around me I feel, I feel, I feel free No walls around me No rules to break or bend I hope tonight don’t end I hope tonight don’t end

Caught your face with attitude cutting through Repeating lines I'd often spoken to you Using good looks to get your own way Thrown in the deep end shouting help me please Talk a lot while the joke's going round Sat on the fence until they dragged you back down Looking for freedom, never finding the truth Something that happened long ago Now to me your confidence is shot Your drinking cheap wine from a paper cup All your power couldn't get you away And now you're screaming cos you're on your knees If someone told you that the mind is blank Would it really matter, would it make you think No time for worship for the chosen few Something that happened long ago Something that happened long ago Was it something that happened long ago Long ago Something that happened long ago Was it something that happened long ago Something that happened long ago Hey, hey, something that happened long ago Hey, hey, something that happened long ago

Let me ask you A simple question About something that you thought you knew You're self righteous All knowing, d'you think you'd get away with what you do? I can see straight, Straight through you And you know - I don't like - what I see All those cobwebs That you're hiding You can't hide them for long from me Cause I'll clean up your act And there'll be nothing left None of your so called friends Will want to speak to you again You lie and cheat your way to the top But the truth comes out in the end ... In case you forgot Your hypocrisy's annoying Your friends don't know what you share about them They don't see you The way I do It's getting old The way you lie, but then again I can see straight, Straight through you And you know I don't like what I see All those cobwebs That you're hiding You can't hide them much longer from me Cause I'll clean up your act And you'll have nothing left None of your so called friends Will want to see you again You lie and cheat your way to the top But the truth comes out in the end ... In case you forgot You can do the worst to them/ When they think that you will still be friends But they don’t know How you treat them when they’re not there And Now I say I have had enough Don’t like your games Or the pain you’re causing us You don’t look so tough to me anymore Cause I'll clean up your act And there'll be nothing left None of your so called friends Will want to see you again You lie and cheat your way to the top But the truth comes out in the end You know you Should've known That I'd clean up your act And you'd have nothing left None of your so called friends Would want to see you again You lie and cheat your way to the top But the truth comes out in the end In case you forgot.

I made myself an institution From all the books I read How to start a revolution From the bottom of a garden shed See I've been thinking I could play your game I'll maybe colour my hair I've been thinking I should change my name I'll be your puppet, I sing because I love it Before we propel toward this rush For me to seal and sign I think I should tell you I reserve the right to change my mind See I've been thinking about the rules again And I do not think it's fair So tie me down and take my name I'll rise above it, I sing because I love it If I could be Fidel Castro I would thank my lucky star I'd have a mojito and light my Cohiba cigar. I'd be thinking 'bout the USA Maybe Guantanamo Bay Hey now FBI and CIA Get the president on speed dial Here's my Cuban missile. Tie me down but I won't give in Tie me down but I won't give in
11.
Why you feel the need to be so strong Why you afraid of something going wrong It’s okay, there’s still tomorrow It’s okay, we’ll beg, steal or borrow Why you need to do it all by yourself When right beside you there’s a hand that could help It’s okay to lean upon me It’s okay, we’re dreaming the same dream Ooh, nothing’s gonna separate us Ooh, woah Ooh, there’s nothing I could say that you don’t already know It’s all behind you let go Everybody’s had a broken heart It’s just nature’s way of saying who your friends are Its okay, we see with the same eyes It’s okay to say that we’re now allies Ooh, nothing’s gonna separate us Ooh, woah Ooh, there’s nothing I could say that you don’t already know It’s all behind you let go Everybody’s had a broken heart Everybody’s had a broken heart We fall, we rise, we try a thousand times What else can we do We’ll fall, we’ll rise, we’ll be preoccupied We’ll reset, we’ll forget, we’ll find there’s something new Ooh, nothing’s gonna separate us Ooh, woah Ooh, there’s nothing I could say that you don’t already know It’s all behind you let go
12.
In the middle of something A million miles from the ground Funny how a picture changes When you see it from the other way around You lock yourself away To keep control There an opportunity to be free So are you gonna let go? Are you ready to fly like a satellite Are you ready to fall in love again Light up the sky like a starry night Are you ready to be more than a friend Are you ready to fall in love again No one can tell you What's right or wrong If there's a rhythm that gets you moving Get up cos that's now your song Life, oh life made of memories So take my hand and we can tear this to pieces Are you ready to fly like a satellite Are you ready to fall in love again Light up the sky like a starry night Are you ready to be more than a friend Are you ready to fall in love again Life, oh life made of memories Take my hand and sail the seas Life, oh life with no guarantees Yes it's whatever you choose to make it Now when I look at us There's something building up And I don't wanna stop We should be taking off Are you ready to fly like a satellite Are you ready to fall in love again Light up the sky like a starry night Are you ready to be more than a friend Are you ready to fall in love again
