I'm not afraid
Of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me
That I haven't already heard

I'm just trying to find
A decent melody
A song that I can sing
In my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling look at you
You gotta stand up straight
Carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere baby

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it

Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I will not forsake
The colors that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing

I am still enchanted
By the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears
Through your eyes I can see

Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of - U2
The sun'll come out tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there'll be sun
Just thinking about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow, till there's none

When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin and say (oh)
The sun'll come out tomorrow,
So you've gotta hang on to tomorrow,
Come what may
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow
You're only a day away

Live baby live
Now that the day is over
I gotta new sensation
In perfect moments
Impossible to refuse

Sleep baby sleep
Now that the night is over
And the sun comes
Like a god into our room
All perfect light and promises

Gotta hold on you
A new sensation, a new sensation
Right now gonna take you over
A new sensation, a new sensation

Dream baby dream
Of all that's come and going
And you will find out in the end
There really is,
There really is no difference

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
Just remember, darling all the while
You belong to me

See the market place in old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember when a dream appears
You belong to me

I'll be so lonesome without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too
And blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'till you're home again
You belong to me

Maybe you'll be lonesome too
And blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'till you're home again
You belong to me

Out where the river broke
The bloodwood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam in forty five degrees

The time has come
To say fair's fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact's a fact
It belongs to them
Let's give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning

Four wheels scare the cockatoos
From Kintore East to Yuendemu
The western desert lives and breathes
In forty five degrees

Beds are Burning - Midnight oil
Just three miles from the rest stop
She slams on the brakes
She said "I've tried to be, but I'm not
So could you please collect your things
I don't want to be cold, I don't want to be cruel
But I've gotta find more than what's happening with you
And if you'd open up the door"

She said, "While you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio and wondering what you're dreaming
When it came to mind that I didn't care
So I thought, hell, if it's over
If I'd have been there any quicker I could lose my nerve
Are you listening
Can you hear me?
Have you forgotten?"

Just three miles from the rest stop
And my mouth's too dry to rage
The light is shining from the radio
I could barely see her face
But she knew all the words that I never had said
She knew the crumble of promise in this broken down bed
As I opened up the door

She said, "While you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio and wondering what you're dreaming
When it came to mind that I didn't care
So I thought, hell, if it's over
If I'd have been there any quicker I could lose my nerve
Are you listening
Can you hear me?
Have you forgotten?"
