Rebel Beat

  • We keep heading in the same direction
    You become my own reflection
    Is that your soul that you're trying to protect
    I always hoped that we would intersect, yeah

    You need time to cope and time to heal
    Time to cry if it's what you feel
    Life can hurt when it gets too real
    I can hold you up when it's hard to feel

    Alive alive
    Alive is all I wanna feel
    Tonight tonight I need to be where you are
    I need to be where you are

    Hey you look around
    Can you hear than noise it's a rebel sound
    We got nowhere else to go
    And when the sun goes down and we fill the streets
    You're gonna dance till the morning to the rebel's beat
    You can take everything from me
    Cause this all I need

    You know that life is like a ticking clock
    Nobody knows when it's gonna stop, yeah
    Before I'm gone I need to touch someone
    With a word with a kiss with a decent song, yeah

    And it gets lonely when you live out loud
    When the truth that you seek isn't in this crowd
    You better find you're voice better make it loud
    We've gotta burn that fire or it will just burn out

    Alive alive
    Alive is all I wanna feel
    Tonight tonight I need to be where you are
    I need to be where you are

    Hey you look around
    Can you hear than noise it's a rebel sound
    We got nowhere else to go
    And when the sun goes down and we fill the streets
    You're gonna dance till the morning to the rebel's beat
    You can take everything from me, oh yeah
    You can take everything from me
    Cause this all I need

    We are free tonight
    And everything's alright
    Put your arms around me
    Baby show me how to move you

    Cause there's no worry there's no cares
    Feel the sound that's everywhere
    Take the sound that's ours for once
    And run like hell

    Hey you look around
    Can you hear than noise it's a rebel sound
    We got nowhere else to go

    Hey you look around
    Can you hear than noise it's a rebel sound
    We got nowhere else to go
    And when the sun goes down and we fill the streets
    You're gonna dance till the morning to the rebel's beat
    You can take everything from me, oh yeah
    You can take everything from me
    'Cause this all I need
    Yeah this is all I need
