Turn it down so I can’t hear it
Turn it out so I can’t see it
It’s just useless to ignore
We’re going down, you don’t feel it
Turn it round, you don’t mean it and
I can’t stand it anymore

When the whole world sighs
And it’s making you so deflated

I've got a life
Though it refuses to shine
I've got a life it aint over (it aint over)
I've got a way
It's the only things that’s mine
All I'm asking for is tenderness
A little tenderness

Ooo it's a cruel place
You never asked to be here
Nobody cares and no one’s gonna help you now (hold on)
It's dog eat dog the human race
The only thing they'll do is hate you (hate you)

Such a crime to be unkind
Turn your cheek pretend you're blind

I've got a life
Though it refuses to shine
I've got a life it ain't over
It ain't over
I've got a way
It's the only thing that's mine
All I’m asking for is tenderness
Tenderness

I've got a life
Though it refuses to shine
I've got a life it ain't over
It ain't over
I've got a way
It's the only thing that's mine
All I’m asking for is tenderness

Be strong now baby
Gotta be strong now baby
Gotta be strong!
