Turn It Up

I listen to my radio
I'm waiting for that song to play
I wonder what you're gonna do
Am I going to hear that song today
Cause I'm counting every second
Till I can sing along
But the line is always busy
And you're not playing the song
Can't you see I'm waiting here for you
Cause I need to hear it
Though I don't know why
To lift up my spirits
And bring a tear right to my eye

And I sing along
Got to hear that song again DJ

When I hear that song

And I sing along

You do what you want to do
You say what you want to say
The choice is always up to you
To play what you want to play
So come on Mr. DJ and play us a song
The one that makes us smile and makes us sing along
Can't you see I'm calling out to you
Cause I need to hear it
Though I don't know why
To lift up my spirits
And bring tear right to my eye

What You See Is What You Get

Here's a little story that I have to tell
About somebody that I thought I knew real well
It seems lately they haven't been respecting me
Or treating me with proper dignity
Well, I don't need you
To treat me this way
The more I seem to give you, well the less I get
And I'm tired of living in this world of lies and regret
What should I do?
I'm wasting all my loving on someone like you
If you don't like me for what you see
Well then tell me baby and set me free

Cause what you see is what you get
Please remember this is it
What you see is what you get
What you see is what you get

Once there was a time when I needed you
And I looked past all the things that you put me through
Well I let my heart lead me and it lead me blind
But it won't lead me back to you this time
Well, I don't need you
To treat me this way
The more I gave to you, well the less I got
If you thought I was about to take it
Well I'm not
What should I do?
I can't waste my loving on someone like you
You don't appreciate the things you see
So now it's time for you to just set me free

Cause what you see is what you get
Please remember this is it
What you see is what you get

What should I do?
I'm wasting all my loving on someone like you
If you don't like me for what you see
Well then tell me baby and set me free
Cause what you see is what you get
Please remember this is it
What you see is what you get
What you see is what you get
What you see is what you get
Please remember this is it
What you see is what you get
What you see is what you get
Bye bye baby goodbye
Bye bye baby goodbye
Bye bye baby, bye bye baby goodbye

The Only Way to Be

Hello Everybody
Guess what I just found
Another wannabe, somebody
Gonna sell their body pound for pound
Gonna be a big star
If they can get the chance
But it takes more than talent
In this high priced world
If you want a little song and dance

Do you like what you see?
To live this life of luxury?
No cares, no dignity
It's all about the money
It's the only way to be
Here's another person
Who's a little worse for wear
Tried to live that life so fast
Tried to live without a care
Well fame can be a fickle friend
Who makes you feel quite tall
But when your empire starts to crumble,
It can push you for a fall

Do you like what you see?
To live this life of luxury?
No friends, just enemies
It's all about the money
It's the perfect way to be

If this is what you wanted
And everything you need
Then be quite prepared, my friend
For the life you choose to lead
Cause fame has many faces
For each of us to see
Bu the wise man is the one who knows that
You should never believe

Do you like what you see?
To live this life of luxury?
No cares, no dignity
It's all about the money
It's the only way to be

I'm Not Cryin' For You

Baby listen to me
I've got something to say
I have finally realized
That I'm wasting my life away
You've made so many promises
That's all you ever do
So know tonight I'm leaving
And I won't come back to you
Well, it doesn't really matter
What you have to say
Cause you know it won't bring us back
Won't bring back yesterday

Cause I'm not crying for you
No, no, no
I'm not crying for you tonight
So please listen when I say
That there's no way that I will stay
And know that
I'm not crying for you

Should've known that
Things would have turned out this way
Should've listened
To all the things my friends would say
How could you say you loved me?
Well, I know that wasn't true
You were never thinking of me
Cause you were too much in love with you

Well, it doesn't really matter
What you have to say
Cause you know it won't bring us back
Won't bring back yesterday

Cause I'm not crying for you
No, no, no
I'm not crying for you tonight
So please listen when I say
That there's no way that I will stay
And know that
I'm not crying for you

Making empty promises is all you do
You say that you will change
But it's just not true
So please listen when I say
That I must find a better way
There's no need for me to stay
Here with you another day
So just stop all of the lying
Cause tonight I won't be crying for you
No, no, no

And I'm not crying for you
No, no, no
I'm not crying for you tonight
So please listen when I say
That there's no way that I will stay
And know that
I'm not crying for you
No I'm not crying for you
No no no
I'm not crying for you tonight
So please listen when I say
That there's no way that I will stay
And know that
I'm not crying no I'm not crying for you
No I'm not crying for you

Mistaken

There's no joy without the pain
It's the pain that makes us strong
But sometimes it's just so hard to carry on
When you said that you don't care
When you say that you'd be there
Well, I wonder just how did things go so wrong
With everything we've had
(Oh please tell me)
And you know it's just so sad
But who's to blame?

(I was mistaken)
So who were you?
I thought I knew?
I guess I was mistaken
But I only wanted you
(I was mistaken)
So say goodbye
Don't tell me why
I guess I was mistaken

I know I can't run to you again
Cause you would only run away
I guess there's nothing I can do to make you stay
You said that you would never leave
A lie you told and I believed
And now you want to go and throw this all away
So what is happening here?
(Oh please tell me)
It's exactly as I feared
You're just the same, and

(I was mistaken)
So who were you?
I thought I knew?
I guess I was mistaken
But I only wanted you
(I was mistaken)
So say goodbye
Don't tell me why
I guess I was mistaken

As I blame myself again
Wondering what I did
You tell me that you still might care for me
You say you're just confused
But that's really no excuse
You don't get sympathy
Cause I don't need this mind trip,
I must be myself
Must free myself from you
And all you put me through

(I was mistaken)
So who were you?
I thought I knew?
I guess I was mistaken
But I only wanted you
(I was mistaken)
So say goodbye
Don't tell me why
I guess I was mistaken

Cause I only wanted you

Your Friend

I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of trying to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore

What is happening my friend?
You see I use the term so loosely these days
Seems we're headed towards the end
Soon to be parting our ways
Cause you've never done a thing for someone else
Unless you thought that you could help yourself
And now the day is here when you have found
You finally need the help of someone else
But they won't help
Cause what you do, you know it's always just for you
So I don't care about you anymore
I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of trying to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore
When it really doesn't matter what I say
Cause you're never gonna listen to me anyways
Well, I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore

It seems you've fallen once again
Like you've done a thousand times before
And now you need a certain friend, someone you can count on
But I don't wanna be the one who's always
Gonna have to make it up to you
And I don't wanna be responsible for all the stupid little things you say,
And things you do
Cause what you did, it seems you've messed up once again
So I don't care about you anymore

I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of trying to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore
When it really doesn't matter what I say
Cause you're never gonna listen to me anyway
Well, I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore

You call me late at night when things are not all right
You need someone to get you through again
You need a helping hand, someone who understands
You're begging and pleading but this time I'm not dealing
Cause I walked this road with you too many times before
And I realize now that this is not what I want anymore

I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of trying to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore
When it really doesn't matter what I say
Cause you're never gonna listen to me anyways
Well, I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore
I don't wanna be your friend
No, I don't wanna be your friend
I don't wanna be your friend
No, I don't wanna be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of trying to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore

Holding On

Working at the six-oh-one you're trying to get it done
But Mr. Man keeps calling
He won't let you have no fun
Telephone keeps ringing
Yeah it's ringing all the time
And he won't stop until you drop
Sometimes you feel you're losing your mind
When you feel the world is down on you
There's only one thing that you really should remember to do

Keep holding on
Keep holding on, yeah
Better days are coming
Just as this one's surely gone
Keep holding on
Keep holding on, yeah
Things will be much better
But you've got to keep holding on
Everyone keeps talkin' talkin'
So much all the time
About things they don't know, man
Yeah I swear it blows my mind
How can you lend an open ear
To such widely spread disease
So polluted, executed
With no thought
And spoken with ease
When you feel the words creep inside of you
Just remember they mean nothing and you'll know what to do

Keep holding on
Keep holding on, yeah
A better day is coming
Just as this one's surely gone
Keep holding on
Keep holding on, yeah
Things will be much better
But you've got to keep holding on

I know life can be hard
And sometimes it brings you down
Just remember when you feel this way
You can make it if you try and you hold on one more day
But you've got to be so strong
And you've got to keep holding on

People talkin' never stopping
Trying to mess with you
Keep holding on, Keep holding on
You don't need to listen
Baby make your own decision
Keep holding on
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
A better day is coming
Just as this one's surely gone
Keep holding on
Keep holding on, yeah
We could come together if we all
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Oh yeah, keep holding on

No Love

Listen to my story
Of a love gone wrong
So wrong
It was a story of a man and a lonely girl
And how his love for her
Destroyed their world, their world
A man meets a woman
And a woman meets man, you see
It's a story as old as history
Old as history, yeah
Why, oh why must it be this way
Where is the lover would be hero
Who will save our day
Who will save the day?
But this is all he'd say

I remember all the things she used to say
I remember all the games we used to play
And I remember loving you
Well now that love has all gone away, gone away, gone away

His love for her had only turned to harm
So she ran for sanctuary
Into another's arms, another's arms
But he caught wind of what was happening
And flew into a rage so maddening
She'll be with no one
If she won't be with me
You see his love for her had turned to obsession
Could not let go of his prized possession
This was what she was
For this is what she was
But the love grew into bitter jealousy
Violence ends in silence
With fatality
Why must this be?

And I remember all the things she used to say
I remember all the games we used to play
And I remember loving you
But now that love has all gone away, gone away, gone away

That's all there is
There's no love
There's no love for you
That's all there is
There's no love
There's no love for you
That's all there is
There's no love
There's no love for you
This time
There's no love for you
This time
There's no love for you
There's no love, there's no love
There's no love, there's no love

Let Me In

I've been watching you and all you do
For quite some time
Knowing all the ins and outs of you
I should've known what was on your mind
But all the world is spinning round and round
Inside my head tonight
I will fall into the darkness
And I fear I will never see the light

I've been watching you and all you do
For quite some time
Knowing all the ins and outs of you
I should've known what was on your mind
But all the world is spinning round and round
Inside my head tonight
I will fall into the darkness
And I fear I will never see the light, the light

So let me in
All that I wanted from you
Was something you'd never do
So let me in
Oh please tonight
Don't let this end
Tonight
I'll Fall

Through no light the darkness seems to be
So very strong
How does one alone against the world
Find the strength to carry on?
What happened to the way we used to love
It seemed as though life had just begun
But now that love has come and gone to fade away
Like the setting sun

Cause you won't let me in.
All that I wanted from you
Was something you'd never do
So let me in
Oh please tonight
Don't let this end
Tonight
Cause I'm starting to fall
So let me in

It was all that I wanted from you
It was something you never knew
To let me in
But not tonight
For this is the end
Tonight
I fall

Angry Situation

You've always been running from some thing or another
But your fear has never had such a name
You let your problems linger
And always point the finger
Cause there's always someone else who's to blame
But now it's not so fun, it's got you on the run
Like the barrel of a gun's at your head
And now the moment's fading
There's no need for hesitating
Cause if you do you just might end up dead

Did you think that this would make everything right?
Did you know the price you pay is your own life?
And as you're screaming out to me to make things right, tonight
How will you end your pain?

And now you need a fixing cause you've got a bad addiction
And it's always screaming out for some more
You're acting like a junkie
On your back it is the monkey
As you sell your body just for the score
But now what will you do
When the choice is up to you
How will you choose to end all your pain?
But for you the only answer
Is to give in to the cancer as you shove it right back into your vein

Did you think that this would make everything right?
Can't you see the price you pay is your own life
And as you're screaming out to me to make things right, tonight
How will you end your pain?

Take a look at what you're doing
Can't you see the consequences that have lead to your ruin?
Though I've tried and I've tried my dear
The situation's ending is clear
It's so sad to hear you say
That you fear your life is slipping away
You don't know what to do
But the answers are inside
It all comes down to you

Did you think that this would make everything right?
Can't you see the price you pay is your own life
And as you're screaming out to me to make things right, tonight
How will you end your pain?
How will you end your pain?
Your pain

Bonus Track (Modified)

You just can't seem to understand the reason
Why I am gone
That was the last time that you make me the little one you step on
I've had it up to here
The end is drawing near
I'm leaving you my dear
And can't you see
You can't break me
I'm not the same as I used to be
I've overcome the misery
And I will be the person that I want to be

And somewhere out there lies a person who is stronger than this world
I'm not suffering, I'm not helpless and I'm not your little girl
So listen if you can and try and understand
Cause I need a better man

Can you see
Can't break me
I'm not the same as I used to be
I've overcome the misery
Now I'll be the person that I want to be

I know you're not the one to change
I'd rather leave you standing than try to rearrange
I'll only turn and walk away
Accept responsibility for what you see
Cause it's time you see
That I'm not the same

Can't you see
You can't break me
I'm not the same as I used to be
I've overcome the misery
And I will be the person that I want to be
Why can't you see?
