  • Yeh! I heard about the trouble last night on the radio
    Seeing is believing now tell me do you like what you see
    Cause I've been holding on to promises now yeh for too many years
    It's happening all over the world to people like you and me

    Things could be heaven but this feels like hell
    So hold your head high cause you know I'd die
    For better days

    Read a story in the paper last night people living in fear
    It's easy saying nothing it's easy just to watch things fall
    But I was taught that there's a time in your life
    When you've got to stand proud
    So tell me don't you think that it's time we put an end to it all

    Things could be heaven but this feels like hell
    So hold your head high cause you know I'd die
    For better days

    Things could be heaven but this feels like hell
    So hold your head high cause you know I'd die
    For better days

    Everybody dreams like me and you
    Everybody do what you have to do
    Where you gonna turn when it all goes wrong
    Living in the same scene way too long
    Everybody hopes that on of theses day
    Everything you want's gonna come your way
    Everybody knows what they have to do
    Everybody dreams like me and you

    Things could be heaven but this feels like hell
    So hold your head high cause you know I'd die
    For better days Writer/s: GIULIANO GIZZI, MARK RANKIN
