This is my life You play ‘the winner’ every time Give me one thing That’s never gonna change your mind If you believe it Then maybe that’s the only way You said something And I will never be the same You know we’re losing something We’ll never be the same Unforgiven Who says it has to be this way? I’ve been waiting For words that you can never say Breathe in silence And holding everything inside Truth is fading But never can it be denied You know we’re losing something We’ll never be the same No you can’t stop me No you won’t bring me down No you can’t stop me I’ll make it through somehow No you can’t stop me No you won’t bring me down No you can’t stop me ‘Cause I won’t be around You know we’re losing something We’ll never be the same

Given time, it’s all mine One more chance and it will be right Another sacrifice in the meantime My own device it will be right Come inside realign Healing while we all rise Do what you need to find a new way Your own design from this day From an inside fascination To the outside It’s a long way down Give it time, realise This is why we will shine Another sacrifice in the meantime My own device it will be right From an inside fascination To the outside It’s a long way down

I turn around There’s nothing wrong We’re moving up to higher ground And I can see That there is grief behind a screen Here forever... You can’t hide forever This is now or never Come to me now Soon we are dust And no-one’s left to hear that sound So who can say “We never saw the warning signs” You can’t hide forever This is now or never

Make something old With something new Trying to feel Like I know what to use No sense of time It’s no surprise I cut the light I remember you I move in front of you What do we have to prove? Why did we lose A field of view Trying to heal Show me what to do Searching for words Another way I close my eyes And I remember you I move in front of you What do we have to prove?

How can I be with you On days like these When everything is wrong In everything I see How did it come to this Will we ever learn Nothing ever changes So it’s time to walk away And you don’t understand... There’s no more time for fighting Why do I feel this way On days like these No communication And there’s nothing to receive It could have been so good Will we ever know The only time we understand Is when it’s time to go Why do I feel this way... How did it come to this Will we ever learn Nothing ever changes So it’s time to walk away There’s no more time for fighting

Can you find it deep inside here Are you sure if you want it like this You can buy it or deny it I don’t care you can take it or leave it Heartbeat – Get Down Heartbeat – Down, down, down, down Heartbeat – Get Down Heartbeat You’ll always be the one to make it right And I don’t mind You’ll always be the voice inside my mind And that’s alright Undecided by what you say Tell me how could I ever resist? I’m supplying your reminder I don’t care you can take it or leave it Am I blinded or divided I don’t know if I want it like this Is it fear or so exciting I don’t know if I can I take it or leave it Heartbeat – Get Down Heartbeat – Down, down, down, down Heartbeat – Get Down Heartbeat You’ll always be the one to make it right And I don’t mind You’ll always be the voice inside my mind And that’s alright

What did you see? What did you say? You give it to me And then you take it away Why are you here? No reason to stay There’s nowhere to go With all the bridges you burned What did you see? What did you say? You give it to me And then you take it away (take it away) Whatever you say This isn’t your day The wrong direction A loose connection Take it from me You’ve something to learn You’re breaking it down To watch it happen again So how do you feel? Who do you blame? You live in a dream Cos there’s nothing in between Whatever you say This isn’t your day The wrong direction A loose connection You say, you say Your day, your day

You made me work for everything I have And never understood the way I am You left me here with nothing else to say I wish that they would come and take me away Yes I am over you I’m really over you Yes I am over you Thank God we’re through She’s having visions of me It’s her decision She’s having visions Why don’t we talk about the way it is Could you ever consider this From over there it’s all so easy to see One step away from our insanity Yes I am over you I’m really over you Yes I am over you Thank God we’re through She’s having visions of me It’s her decision She’s having visions

Why do I get the feeling Something isn’t right Why do I get that feeling I won’t be here tonight But I don’t want to be saved From all the things that I’ve done Sometimes we need to be brave But it’s so easy to run You know that we’re falling (falling) I said hold on, this is all wrong So I’m perfecting the art of evasion Do you get the feeling That something has gone Do you get the feeling That you don’t belong But I don’t need to be told Of all the things I could say Sometimes I feel so cold Maybe it’s better that way You know that we’re falling (falling) I said hold on, this is all wrong So I’m perfecting the art of evasion

I call for something I call for you My understanding Comes into view I look around me I walk the line To independence You leave behind There’s no-one else You can lie but I’ll survive What do you see now What do you feel now I don’t want to be someone else ‘Cause my life’s on the wire Just give me one more chance ‘Cause my life’s on the wire A new reaction Another sign No more distractions It’s all in the mind I feel surrounded So close to you It’s all or nothing What we can do? There’s no way out You can try but you’ll start to realise What do you see now What do you feel now I don’t want to be someone else ‘Cause my life’s on the wire Just give me one more chance ‘Cause my life’s on the wire

When it gets to me Like it gets to you It’s just another view Was it ever needed? And all the tension weighing down and Running round my head and I Couldn’t do a thing about it But I see clearly now Under my skin It’s not the same Under my skin I can’t give it away The pressure gets to me Does it get to you? It’s just another day Where I’m lost and I’m going down All this poison running up and Down inside my veins and I Couldn’t do a thing about it But I don’t feel you now Under my skin It’s not the same Under my skin I can’t give it away Stop talking, I’m talking You’re talking we’re talking I generate the scene You get one for free There’s just no other way Could you ever believe it? And all that tension weighing down and Running round my head and I Couldn’t do a thing about it But I see clearly now Under my skin It’s not the same Under my skin I can’t give it away

We're gonna take you on Defeated you'll be gone Spare the lies Visualise Cut the ties Synchronise We've got to move it on We've got you holding on We've got to move it on So where do you belong? Spare the lies Visualise Cut the ties Synchronise
