Colored lights dance on the floor Body moves in time you just want more and more Can’t control what feels so right Human nature gonna win tonight Gonna stand proud fight the lovers fight Fear and shame try to make us hide our love away But tonight the lovers rock we gonna rock This is a love you cannot stop no Nothing can come between this love tonight Nothing can come between this love tonight When you find love just hold on tight Don’t let nobody stop what feels so right oh Nothing can come between this love tonight Nothing can come between this love All the times they try to hold us down We don’t run and hide we march right through the town Can’t control what feels so right You can keep your guns coz love wins tonight The flag is gonna fly we gonna fight the lovers fight Fear and shame have tried to make us hide our love away Tonight the lovers rock we gonna rock This is a love you cannot stop no We wont let the night just slip away Time to say what we have to say Remember the ones who we lost their lives wont be forgot Honor their memory and stand up its time to rock the lover’s rock

Give You Up 06:24
Verse 1 It's just desire leave your emotion at the door What's conversation anymore? just wasted time So done with the talk I just need time and space to feel Your touch is helping me to heal - at least justify what I'm doing is right Chorus I can't give you up I'll never say enough is enough (enough is enough) I know its a lie but it feels like love (feels like love) It's never too much I don't wanna stop no I can't get enough Feels like a dream I don't wanna wake up (wake up) I'm in heaven when we touch (whenever we touch) It's never too much I know I can't give up you up Post chorus refrain Uh uh uh uh uh cant give you up Verse 2 So long I felt like I had lost part of myself But when I'm with you I just feel so free it must be good for my health I was so lonely. I thought that I would not survive Now I'm alone but with you at night I feel alive so though I try no Chorus Refrain Bridge Just for tonight I want to love you Just for tonight I want to feel you Just for tonight I want to love you Just for tonight I want to love you Just for tonight I want to feel you Just for tonight I want to love you I want to love you baby ooh yeah Chorus Refrain Outro I cant give you up no I cant give you I cant give you up no I cant give you up I cant give you up no I cant give you up no I cant give you up I can’t give you up – cant give you up – cant give you up

Chasing Gold 04:27
You was digging on me I was digging on you Maybe too good to be true The night that I met you Too much too soon You thought you had too much to lose Your eyes too closed to see My love is worth more than money I wont sign your waiver its not about that paper If you want a life with me My love could be forever to you my cash is better You want to count your coins well run along and enjoy We could have had love but you only love your mumma and your money We could have had love but instead you have your mumma and your money I’m not chasing gold not chasing gold x 2 You keep your dollars and I’ll keep my sense I’m not some stupid girl you can suppress I don’t take kindly to your accusations no I deserve better than that I hope your spreadsheets start to love you back When you’re lonely you can caress your cash I’ll be happy and I’ll be just fine With someone who loves me for my heart and mind I wont sign your waiver its not about that paper If you want a life with me My love could be forever to you my cash is better You want to count your coins well run along and enjoy We could have had love but you only love your mumma and your money We could have had love but instead you have your mumma and your money I’m not chasing gold not chasing gold x 2 You think you got it oh you got that midas touch Your always counting but you don’t add up too much Gold fingers much too rough

Verse 1 Only yesterday we both cried and I prayed For times to heal us and times to change The sounds of yesteryear Memories gone by flowed in my tears How can my greatest joy be my greatest fear? Can we really change? Can we really talk and rearrange? Promises so sweet turn so strange The strength I had I gave away Pre-chorus 1 Always hoping for a brighter day You show the signs but they always fray I’m afraid to leave, so scared I stay I can’t stand up to this fight today Chorus Do you hear that sound? (Do you hear that sound) Do you hear that sound? (Do you hear that sound) This is me breaking down (This is me, this is me breaking down) This is me breaking down (This is me breaking down) Hear me scream and shout (Hear me scream and shout) My roof and walls are crumbling down (crumbling down) So low I’ve hit the ground (hit the ground) Does it make you proud? To see me breaking down… Verse 2 How did it come to this? Did I neglect? Was there something that I missed? Why do you push? Oh why do you insist? Sometimes we dance and I forget the space between us, the emptiness Called you friend and I believed it true Now rage has taken my faith in you Pre-chorus 2 They say that love is the same as hate Do I choose this pain or is this just my fate? All I know is - my love is blind How can I break this cycle of what’s yours is mine? Chorus Bridge I know I saw the signs but I closed my eyes I know I could not leave all this love behind Father said I made my bed Was this really what he meant?

I've had enough of feeling scared to walk the streets alone I'm so fed up with feeling like I should not leave my home Living in the dark I won't accept that its a danger zone When I'm walking the streets alone End of the show it seems so crazy to need a chaperone I want to be safe on my own Our safety is not guaranteed But we're breaking free Take back the night We're fighting for our dignity making history Reclaim the night Set us free to walk the streets carefree like we ought to bee This is our right Stepping out fearlessly gonna make a scene and Take back the night We'll overcome the blame they put on us for having fun Never ever never gonna give up Until the streets are safe for each and everyone When I'm out at night I won't accept I can't wear what I want When I'm walking the streets alone the outfit that I chose don't give you the right to touch or taunt Its my right to walk home fear free Our safety is not guaranteed But we're breaking free Take back the night We're fighting for our dignity making history Reclaim the night Set us free to walk the streets carefree like we ought to bee This is our right Stepping out fearlessly gonna make a scene and Take back the night I've been feeling I can't be me The time has come to walk with dignity

You think that I run around with my head in the clouds But I know where I’m going my feet are right here on the ground You think I’m too damn proud to call admit my mistakes This time your so wrong because this time my heart is in the right place I have worked hard and paid my dues I don’t owe anything to you The line is drawn and we are through There’s nothing you can say or do I’m looking up your moving out Can’t stand to hear you scream and shout If I have to choose from me and you I know exactly what to do I I wont I wont choose you I wo-oo-oo choose you I wont I wont chose you-ou-ou- I wont. Wont choose You think that I’m too scared to get my hands dirty but don’t you know better than that by now I wont back down no I wont I trust my instinct and its telling me to walk away From your game that you play You don’t own me or my money
