Under pressure

5 February, 2008

Queen‘s classic hit featuring David Bowie.

‘Under Pressure’ (Hot Space, 1982)

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

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 high, high, 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
Why 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…?

Cause love’s such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For the 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 ourselves
Under Pressure
Under Pressure
Pressure
