LIVIN’ THE HARD WAY

Can’t get up when you’re feeling down
Heads on the floor, face to the ground
First in line first to fall, standing with your back against the wall
Life ain’t easy, it ain’t fair, I’m broke and you’re a millionaire
It don’t make sense and it never will, I pay the price and I pay your bill
Looks so easy and so strange, day after day
We’re livin the hard way
9 to 5 slave on the gravy train
Can’t pay the rent, it’s already late
Remind me of that American dream, cause it sure ain’t what I’ve seen
Looking for a reason, can’t find a clue
Round and round but never through
Out of touch and out of time, I’m going out of my mind
Looks so easy and so strange, day after day
We’re livin the hard way
We’re livin the hard way
It gets harder every day, living this way
I tell it to the man above, I’ve had enough
Can’t get up when you’re feeling down
Heads on the floor, face to the ground
First in line first to fall, standing with your back against the wall
Life ain’t easy, it ain’t fair, I’m broke and you’re a millionaire
It don’t make sense and it never will, I pay the price and I pay your bill
Looks so easy and so strange, day after day
We’re livin the hard way

We’re livin the hard way

We’re livin the hard way

MODERN DAY FAIRYTALE

Do you think my love is true? The feelings that I have for you
I can’t make the same mistake of giving more than I can take
Do you long for me to see what’s blinded by reality?
What I’ve never had inside is what I found in your eyes
Hold me close and hold me tight and everything will be alright
A modern day fairytale shot from the mists of hell
Love is just and true but it’s nothing new
Like Romeo and Juliet, We’re Montague and Capulet
Like Romeo and Juliet, We’re Montague and Capulet
Like Romeo and Juliet
Do you think I am vane? When your disease drives me insane
Souls draining their final breath
Sentencing ourselves to death
Do you long for me to see what’s blinded by reality?
What I’ve dreaded all my life is happening before my eyes
Hold me close and hold me tight and everything will be alright
A modern day fairytale shot from the midst of hell
Love is just and true but it’s nothing new
Like Romeo and Juliet, We’re Montague and Capulet
Like Romeo and Juliet, We’re Montague and Capulet
Like Romeo and Juliet
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Hold me close and hold me tight and everything will be all right
Hold me close and hold me tight and everything will be all right
Hold me close and hold me tight and everything will be all right

Hold me close and hold me tight and everything will be all right

FOR NOTHIN’

Daddy always told me to watch out, watch out for people like you
Be careful what you say boy, be careful what you do
You wake up screaming, from yesterday
And you’re still dreaming of a better happy way
You wake up screaming, can you take the pain?
And you’re still dreaming of a better happy day…. yeah
Time after time, day after day, Reason and rhyme
How’d it get to be this way?  Guilt and denial
For Nothin’, For Nothin’
Well you’re the wild one and it’s all on you
And now you’re crying, cause you know that it’s all true
You know that it’s all true
Well they’re all watching, yeah they’re watching you
Can you stake your claim boy?  Yeah whatcha gonna do? …. Yeah
Time after time, day after day, Reason and rhyme
How’d it get to be this way?  Guilt and denial
For Nothin’, For Nothin’
It’s all for nothing’
Time after time, day after day, Reason and rhyme
How’d it get to be this way?  Guilt and denial
For Nothin’, For Nothin’
It’s all for nothing’
Daddy always told me to watch out, watch out for people like you
Be careful what you say boy, be careful what you do
You got that?
It’s All for Nothin’

For Nothin

BEAT ME DOWN

You know I tried to talk to you, but my mind wouldn’t let me
You know I tried to touch you, but my conscience wouldn’t let me
So then you beat me down
You beat me down (repeat 10X)
And you tried to find me, but you just couldn’t catch me
And you say ya know me, but your face detests me
You always beat me down
You beat me down (repeat 10X)
Don’t beat me down
Now you come with sympathy, but you know that’s not me
And you come to compromise, but I see through your lies
You always try to beat me down
You beat me down (repeat 10X)
Don’t beat me in the ground

EVERY BREATH

(Sting)

Every breath you take and every move you make
Every bond you break, every step you take, I’ll be watching you
Every single day and every word you say
Every game you play, every night you stay, I’ll be watching you
Oh, can’t you see you belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take
Every move you make, every vow you break
Every smile you fake, every claim you stake, I’ll be watching you
Since you’ve gone I’ve been lost without a trace
I dream at night, I can only see your face
I look around but it’s you I can’t replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying, “Baby, baby, please”
Oh, can’t you see you belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take
Every move you make and every vow you break
Every smile you fake, every claim you stake, I’ll be watching you
Every move you make, every step you take, I’ll be watching you
I’ll be watching you
