Queen & David Bowie – Under Pressure lyrics

Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Bah bah bah bah bah bah

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

Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out!
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people
People on streets


Do do do bah bah bah bah
O-kay
Chippin' around
Kick my brains round the floor
These are the days
It never rains but it pours

People on streets
People on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming let me out!
Pray tomorrow takes me higher higher higher
Pressure on people
People on streets

Turned away from it all
Like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
But it's so slashed and torn
Why why why?
Love love love love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love give love give love?
Give love give love give love give love give love?
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For 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

    Okay so this was never a song I saw as a song bout the cold war until now and I had to do a history project on songs about the cold war but now I see it talks about how we cat the soviet union for stupid reasons and mainly because we are scared of them and we are just forced to belive that growing up but we are more concerned with how people live reather than how the people living at home are living so why can't we just forgive them even though we should be forgiveing them just letting them have their way with living and focus on our people and just learn to love them as they are and just let them be them.
