But we've hardly spoken, you barely opened the door Caught a glimpse of perfection, an idea from a dream before ooh, too many times ooh, too many times It's total destruction careful balance all on the floor can I trust this emotion will it even out the score 'cause I've given it up, given it up Too Many TImes 'cause I've given it up, given it up Too Many TImes giving it up Don't give up , don't give in get out of my head it's the only way out I know you real well give someone the right to see the right to hold on the right to complain I hear them echoing don't bring me down Just get me out Giving it up, giving it up Cause I've given it up, given it up too many times Cause I've given it up, given it up too many times But we've hardly spoken

How did she know what's going on in my head? what did she mean by those words? is it all right because of the fight or is it in all of us? You play with my emotions like it's a joke that I care but me without my senses there's nobody there. Caught Up, Caught up, Caught Up to You Caught Up, Caught up, Caught Up to You What if I don't want to run in your race I've got my eye on the bigger picture Are you ready for that pace To copy's the way, does that make it ok here's hoping original wins the day here's hoping original wins the day here's hoping here's hoping Caught Up, Caught Up to You Caught Up, Caught Up to You Caught Up, Caught Up to You Caught Up, Caught up, Caught Up to You Caught Up, Caught up, Caught Up to You It's just the way we are It's just the way we are It's just the way we are

California, what the hell happened to ya? you were once part of my own golden dream Long drive from a pink motel hugged the coast in a car we bought to sell midday heat shimmers and blurs where the road and the sky and the distance merge And I think of the time you were a state of mind I still think of the times California, what the hell happened to ya You were once part of my own golden dream California, you were once part of my gold dream Lying on the bed I remember it all too hot to sleep got some ice down the hall drank beer as we sang along to the radio the radio And I think of the times you were a state of mind Snow globe and a Hollywood sign California, what the hell happened to ya You were once part of my own golden dream California, you were once part of my gold dream Gold dream.... ( and I think of the times, you were a state of mind). My turn at the wheel through Monteray stop for gas, a photograph, headed for LA as all the views rush by Palm trees push up through the sky Palm trees push up through the sky California You were once part of my gold dream California You were once part of my old dream California You were once part of my gold dream California We were once part of the same dream

Well you smoke and you choke on the air And we laugh as you say you don't care 'Cause we smile as you play with your hair 'Cause you're doing your best And the car that you park in the drive and the job the that you need to survive and the friends that you've come to rely on but you're doing your best Well the dirt in your hair and your eyes and the sweat on your back and your thighs in the way you tell truth from the lies 'cause you're doing your best And this world that you hold in your mind on whose back will your pyramids rise by whose god will your fortunes divide 'cause you're doing your best Everybody's trying to do the right thing but maybe we could do it better instead of trying to figure it out on your own we should put our heads together. Well you smoke and you choke on the air And we laugh as you say you don't care 'Cause we smile as you play with your hair 'Cause you're doing your best

The odds are long but we'll still make it set a record and then we'll break it we booked a flight and then we'll take it Australian nights, and getting naked. Short on money, but long on soul what we found funny was all that we could not control So we'll travel the world and visit our friends we're putting our dreams together again 'cause nothin' makes me happier than music let's be the best tonight. Don't be so hard, you've already made it. made it... So we'll travel the world and visit our friends we're putting our dreams together again 'cause nothin' makes me happier than music we'll be the best tonight. Don't be so hard you've already made it (feel so fine, and it's alright, we'll make the best, the best tonight) It's not that far, we've already made it (feel so fine, and it's alright, we'll make the best, the best tonight) Don't be so hard you've already made it (feel so fine, and it's alright, we'll make the best, the best tonight) It's not that far, we've already made it (feel so fine, and it's alright, we'll make the best, the best tonight)

I see you questioning, just why am I still here it's not as if it's been much fun for a while now and even the sunshine is failing to appear to lift that gloom across your shoulders and if I feel the weight of all you must endue I somehow know it makes me stronger and that tiny spark that lives so deep inside your heart well we all should make it bolder Well the world's not spinning faster a hundred years for us to master Stop givin up on love yeah the world's not spinning faster a thousand years for us to master stop givin up on love It's been a year or two since the last time we saw you now computer screens seem to be the best we can do I hear you telling me about your broken history and you know I wish we could be closer to you 'cause you're looking back at all that coulda shoulda been and feeling tired from misadventures and the tiny spark that lives so deep inside your heart it's calling out for a new answer Well the world's not spinning faster a hundred years for us to master Stop givin up on love yeah the world's not spinning faster a thousand years for us to master stop givin up on love yeah the world's not spinning faster a million years for us to master stop givin up on love well the world's not spinning faster a billion years before we pass her stop givin up on love Stop givin up on Love You don't have to fall apart chasing all you dreams (stop givin up on love) You don't have to fall apart it's closer than it seems (stop givin up on love)

Waking up, still tired feeling down, uninspired draining out, the hard work washed away Giving up, so heartbroken all the dreams, left unspoken see them smile as we become the same Don't be scared of what you're seeing just realize there's more to being than what you buy or steal or break it's how you live and what you make I think it's time to disagree with what we've learned for centuries 'cause never in our history have we been more in debt to greed. Waiting for a wave to break riding on the chance you take for a better way, someday might not be that far away It's ok, we made it through today we'll beg or steal or borrow to make it through tomorrow Hope's not gone, it's still on you may be out of favour but you could be your savair it's ok.
