Track Name: Bang
BANG

Climbing to the top
Must have been the wrong tree
Nothing's coming up
And it's getting scary
If we can't get it together
Tell me what am I doing here

So whatcha gonna do 
When they bang on your door?
You know they're here to get you
So you run some more
Oh whatcha wanna do
Is really not up to you

And it may take some time
It's your loss, they don't know what you've seen
It could be worth your while
Cos you're lost, and they don't know where you've been

DON'T GIVE UP
WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN THEY BANG ON YOUR DOOR?
YOU DON'T HAVE TO FEAR THE LIFE YOU LEAVE BEHIND

WHY DON'T YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND
(WHAT YOU'RE LEAVING BEHIND)
WHY DON'T YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND
(IT IS TIME TO GO FORWARD)

Five thousand people with their hands in the air
A hundred mental pictures, you've got memories to share
When you find yourself a lover
You'll get the hell outta here

And it may take some time
It's your loss, they don't know what you've seen
It could be worth your while
Cos you're lost, and they don't know where you've been

DON'T GIVE UP
WHATCHA GONNA DO
WILL YOU RUN SOME MORE?
PLEASE DON'T HATE YOURSELF
COS YOU CAN'T MAKE UP YOUR MIND

WHY DON'T YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND
WHY CAN'T YOU MAKE IT THIS TIME?
Track Name: Piano Theme Park
Piano Theme Park

There's no logic in what I've done
Why did I have to mess around?
Some say it's magic that comes undone
And now my burden weighs a ton

Why did I have to mess it up?

I guess you just had to bring me down
I couldn't get away with just a frown
I saw myself yourself high above the ground
I was just a king with a plastic crown

why did I have to turn you down?
(why did I have to tear you down?)
when you thought it was safe and sound
(when you thought it was safe and sound)
And now there's no turning back
Just an unfinished track

An old black and white movie
Playing a song so sad it moves me

I couldn't stay with you
Even if you wanted me to
I couldn't just stay with you (didn't want to stay with you)
hope you're better now we're through (I just can't make it up to you)

and now there's no turning back
just an unfinished track
and now there's no turning back
just an unfinished track
Track Name: Middle Of Nowhere
Middle Of Nowhere

Up and down, to and fro
Back and forth, one more to go
To the left or to the right
Soon we'll be, we'll be outta sight

I thought I'd always find my way
But it's been days
And now I'm stuck out there
Right in the middle of nowhere

Fast forward rewind the tape
You're way behind the great escape
Off the wall, under the bridge
It's dark out there, just like in a fridge

I thought I'd always find my way
But it's been days
And now i'm stuck out there
Right in the middle of nowhere


I've been going round in circles all my life
i just need a new cycle
I've been going round in circles all my life
I've been going round in circles all my life
I've been going round in circles all my life
I must find a new cycle

I thought I'd always find my way
But it's been days
And now I'm stuck out there
Right in the middle of nowhere
I'm in the middle of nowhere
Right in the middle of nowhere
Track Name: Call Up
Call Up

I'm falling asleep, 
Let's put some music on,
Not just softly in the background,
I've been waiting for someone
To sing my fears

Riding on the highway,
Slowing down, no way.
There's a dead deer by the side of the road,
I've seen dozens of squashed toads

WHAT ELSE COULD I DO?
I THOUGHT WE WERE THROUGH…
LET ME DRAW A  LINE,
YOU WON'T ERASE WITH A SMILE

It's summertime, and the window's open
The car's so hot, it feels like an oven
I've been dreaming of someone 
Who would wipe my forehead

You really put me in the corner
of the room, of the street, now it's over
A lot's been done, and now i'm gone
it's the end of our play 

WHAT IS LEFT FOR YOU?
I DON'T HAVE A CLUE
COULDN'T CHANGE YOUR STYLE
PLEASE GIVE ME BACK WHAT'S MINE

repeat chorus
Track Name: Whatever ('89 version)
Whatever or ('89 version)


what you want from me,
I just don't know what it is, you see
what you want from me,
I just don't know what it is, really
what you want from me,
I just don't know what it is

If you wanna make it it happen
find the right words to say
