So you lost all your friends, but if you skip pretense Never had them anyway You can close that door, and in moving forward You’ll set yourself free Just keep your head up and remain strong You’ll find a new life ‘fore too long So you changed your ways, and as you clear the haze You don’t know how to live Well baby, give it time, and as you walk the line You’ll find that weight will lift Just keep your head up, and remain strong You’ll find a new life ‘fore too long

Come let your hair down, let it all hang out Forget your worries, it will all work out Let’s have a good time, c’mon don’t be shy Open yourself up, don’t let it pass by Let it go now Let it show now Give it up Give generously, now don’t be stingy Someone will be there when your glass is empty Let go of anger, love one another Embrace Compassion, sisters and brothers Let it go now Let it show now Give it up

C’mon, lift up that sad face You’re down ‘cause you had a bad day Bad week, bad month, bad year, I dunno Sometimes, that’s just the way it goes But cheer up, for things are bound to get better Don’t you know these things don’t last forever Sing alright - It’s gonna be alright now So you tried to live out your big dream You fought a good fight and it took everything Beat up, cast out, knocked down for the count Sometimes that’s just how it works out But cheer up, for things are bound to get better Don’t you know these things don’t last forever Sing alright - It’s gonna be alright now Well don’t lose hope for the future on account of the past Your life isn’t over until you breathe your last So when this world has got you down my friends Just shrug it off, stand up and sing out again…

Don’t’ give into complacency, oh no Don’t let go of your sacred dream, oh no Everyone that you meet, every person you tell You can change the whole wide world If you tell your story well Don’t give into the voice of doubt, oh no Don’t let go of your great ideals, oh no Every breath that you breathe Holds the power to compel You can change the whole wide world If you tell your story well It’s up to me, it’s up to you It’s up to us, and there’s nothing we can’t do In the darkness of the age Hope can seem to fade away But there’s light in your spirit if you’ll let it shine We can all be free if you let it shine Won’t you let it shine

Time slips away, more every day Life carries on, life carries on Change is gonna come To the weak and to the strong Life carries on, life carries on Hold on to love We all are one, we will become We, with open minds, truth we will find Hold on to love

You locked your door and you hid the key You don’t wanna hear from me, oh no - oh no You say you need change, but you’re not that strong Well I don’t get just what it is you’re on - what you’re on What can I say when you’re acting this way? What can I do? How do I get through to your heart? How do I get through to your heart? The deepest part of who you are How do I get through to your heart? You want your space ‘til this thing’s through Well I’m not giving up on you oh no – oh no You feel like you can’t break these chains But together we can beat this thing so come on – come on There is hope, you don’t have to walk alone What will it take? How do I get through to your heart? How do I get through to your heart? The deepest part of who you are How do I get through to your heart? I’m crying out – can you hear me now? I’m screaming out woah-oh How do I get through…

You’re the one that was sent When the times were tough You’re the one I needed so much You’re the one and I don’t care how it looks Yeah, I’m gonna sing out Gonna sing about your love How did you know I needed you? How did you know to call? How did you know I needed you so much? How did you know? Just when I thought that times were getting tough Just when I needed you so much You came along and didn’t care how it looked Yeah, I’m gonna sing out Gonna sing about your love How did you know I needed you? How did you know to call? How did you know I needed you so much? How did you know? I couldn’t go on any more I couldn’t carry on – carry on without your love – oh One more day and I don’t’ know if I’d have made it out Made it out of here How did you know…

Sing a song of something good for once today We already know ‘bout all the other junk anyway And we’ll never make it If we just sit around complaining Tell us something good, something we wanna hear Careful of the words that you put in our ear If they cause us all to perish All our deaths will be on your head We’ve all got our self-destructive habits Won’t you come and fix me up? Come and fix me up? Wah – alright now… Is there anything more fleeting than the good times? Does anyone here need a chance To kick-back and unwind If you got a hand-out, man, I’ll take it I’ll pay it back if I can make it
10.
Don’t wanna talk about the President Don’t wanna know where all the money went Don’t wanna worry ‘bout payin’ the rent I just wanna rock’n’roll – just wanna rock’n’roll Don’t wanna keep workin’ for the man Don’t wanna waste time on a five-year plan I can’t explain it, you don’t understand But I just wanna rock’n’roll – just wanna rock’n’roll
