Hey Don't sit on your soul You've gotta let it breath You've gotta let it roll So don't No no don't Don't sit on your soul No no no no Your soul is a beast and it can't be tamed You soul is a beast it can't be contained Just let it go Just let it flow Your soul is a beast and it can't be tamed Hey Don't sit on your soul You've gotta let it move You've gotta lose control So don't No no don't Don't sit on your soul You've gotta lose control

I wake up at a quarter to ten And the rain is striking my window I look for clothes but there's nothing fresh I gotta do the wash, yeah I think so I have some fruit, it's a little too ripe But I eat it all the same And then I spend an hour and some Playing the computer game It's not so bad It's not so good It's not that bad It's not that good It's not the worst But it's not great Another day A wasted slate I go out to get some groceries But I forget my list at home I do my best from memory And I miss the milk, oh no I think about everything I could do And I end up doing none I look at the clock and it's already four But I thought that it was one Ooh, it's a whatever day, hey hey I missed the most of it I missed the most of it But I can make it up Tomorrow I've got a book but I fall asleep When I get to page fourteen And I wake up and I realize that I never had a chance to clean It's getting late and I need some food From freezer to the microwave It tastes alright and it fills me up But it's nothing I would crave

The music starts and I turn to you You've got this look like there's nothing to do I know you're bored and you don't have to But don't hold me back oh oh oh ooh I'm gonna make I'm gonna make it I'm gonna make it happen I'm gonna make it happen tonight Oh whoa when I see you I cannot leave you Cause I need you Oh whoa but I feel my Feet cannot be tied Anymore Can't you feel, what I feel How can you sit there so very still You can blame it on your heel But don't hold me back I'm getting ill Now I can accept that maybe you don't like dancing But it's a part of me And I need to let that dancing out sometimes And I can only hope that you understand what I'm going through The music plays and I turn to you It's getting good I know what I gotta do I know you're bored and you don't have to But don't hold me back oh oh oh ooh

I've been clinging to you like a moss on a rock If you gonna go rolling then I'm gonna get squashed I've been hanging from you like a bat in a cave If we ever fallout I won't know how to escape I'm a little bit worried and I hope I never have to see the end I built my trust in you just like a home And now I've got nowhere else to go I've been growing to you like a tree in the dirt If you gonna loosen up my falling won't get heard I've been thinking of you like a bee does the hive If you gonna go missing then I will not survive Oh, well you know You could destroy me Oh, you well know That you could destroy me I know that I must be good to you Cause I know what it is that you can do I know I mustn't do no wrong to you Cause we both know what it is you can do I've been sticking to you like the PB and J If you gonna take my bread then I'm a mess on the plate I've been swimming in you like a fish in a lake If you gonna dry up then I got nowhere to stay
5.
What's this unexplainable feeling It's got the hairs pulling from my skin What's this peculiar tingle I swear there's more here at work Oh I think there's been some magic It's making me feel a little uneasy Can you feel that chill, it was there just now I don't know, but there's been some magic tonight What's this unusual shiver I can't help glancing over my shoulder What's this strange sensation It wasn't here when I started the day Oh there is definitely some magic here I'm not sure exactly where it's coming from It's like as soon as we started talking But, yeah, I don't really know You know what I'm talking about though right It's like everything is just so perfect I'm not used to that, but I only really want to stare into your eyes I don't know, but there's been some magic tonight
6.
There's So much To love In this world I just wanna see everybody happy yeah I just wanna see everybody smiling now If We all Try hard We can I just wanna see everybody holding hands I just wanna see everybody dancing now Everybody should dance now Everybody deserves to have a good time Everybody deserves to feel alright Everybody deserves a chance to live their life Everybody deserves to have a good time Oh so don't take that away from anyone How Is it We are So troubled I just wanna hear everybody laughing yeah I just wanna hear everybody singing yeah It's A dream But I Can dream I just wanna see everybody happy yeah I just wanna see everybody dancing now Everybody should dance now
7.
Well, we can't spend all our time Doing the things we need to do but don't shine Well, we might need to get some air So why don't we go somewhere somewhere Where should we go Where should we go I don't know I don't know But I know we've got to get away Where should we go Where should we go We can't stay no we must go Yeah I know we need to get away Well, we don't notice it at all We get so used to all the bad the things on the wall Well, we should really change the pace And I think that it might mean a change of space Let's go somewhere nice Somewhere we've never been Let's go somewhere nice Somewhere we want to be Let's go somewhere nice Let's go and leave the mess Let's go somewhere nice We can't settle for anything less Oh tell me you've got a place in mind Oh I hope it's not too hard to find Oh I've been looking forward to a break Oh I know it's gonna be just great

03:56
Oh, in the light I can't seem to find the right I can only wait for things To be a little less bright Even with these shades I can't wait for it to fade All the time I wait For the night to pervade Oh in the dark I feel a powerful spark But I can't abide the sun Out in the park Yeah there's no other scene Than the evening's silver gleam So I'm waiting for the Night to intervene Hey Let's turn this day into a night inside Hey Or chase the moon, we'll go worldwide Oh if I could I would live in an underworld Where the nightlife it would Keep on going strong It must be for the best But I get so depressed Cause there's nothing good to do In the sun Hey Let's turn this day into a night inside Hey Or chase the moon, we'll go worldwide Hey And when it's dark we can go outside Hey And I'll be safe to open my eyes
9.
If they don't like it Well they can let me know Cause I get excited When the bass is turned up low We will shake everyone from their seats It would be criminal not to share these beats If they don't like it They'll have to shout at me Cause I like it louder As loud as it can be If they don't like it They should call the police But I don't believe in Such quiet and or peace If they don't like it They shouldn't live next door Cause in my neighbourhood I raise the roof from the floor Whoa oh, well I'm a bad neighbour Whoa oh, well I'm a bad neighbour If they don't like it They should maybe change their mind Cause it's the big sounds That help me to unwind We will shake everyone from their seats It would be criminal not to share these beats If they don't like it They'll have to shout at me Cause I like it louder As loud as it can be
10.
You ask me What I'm smiling about But can't I be Just smiling cause I feel alright Oh it's a feeling I find it quite appealing Oh when I feel alright I just wanna keep it goin' on You ask me What I'm laughing about But can't I be Just laughing cause I feel so good Oh it's a feeling I find it quite appealing Oh when I feel so good Nothing can stop me
11.
Things haven't been so easy of late And I know how you must feel But there's not much that we can do Everything just suddenly got so real What was it then you don't remember now Joyful times buried in woe You're in a state of denial because Everything just suddenly got so Oh you're not having fun anymore I can tell, by the way you sway And I'll try my best to comfort you But all that I can say When the world turns its back on you And the rain clouds start closing in You feel like nothing will be the same And you don't know how to begin It wasn't always this hard to deal And it will change again although It's hard to keep it in mind when Everything just suddenly got so

03:19
Oh, I'm fading Fading like a day's light But all I need is a reason to Keep myself upright I'm so tired of the same thing Being tired cause there's nothing to do I'm so tired but I don't want To just lie myself away Ooh, so give me something now If you've got something new I'm so tired but I won't let That slow me down Wake me up Don't let me sleep through If you're having fun Wake me up I'm only sleeping until We can have fun Oh I'm drifting Drifting like the time But all I need is something to Entertain my mind I'm so tired and I don't think We suffer from apathy I'm so tired of the feeling Being tired cause there's nothing to do Ooh, so give me something now If you've got something new I'm so tired but I won't be When we figure it out I go To sleep Only cause there's nothing for me I go To sleep Only cause there's nothing for me
