LyricsEdit

Ivy:
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for

Karen:
Under pressure that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Jimmy:
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming
 
Jimmy and Ana:
"Let me out!"

Ana:
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Tom:
Chippin' around, kick my brains 'round the floor
These are the days - it never rains but it pours

Julia:
People on streets - people on streets

Ivy:
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about

Karen:
Watching some good friends
Screaming

Karen and Ivy:
"Let me out!"

Ivy:
Pray tomorrow gets me higher and higher and higher

Karen:
Pressure on people - people on streets

Eileen:
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work

Derek:
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn

Jimmy:
Why, why, why?

Sam:
Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking

Ivy:
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?

Jimmy:
Why can't we give love that one more chance?

Karen:
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love

Karen and Jimmy:
Give love, give love, give love, give love?

All:
'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure
