"Rise To The Occasion" as written by and Kurt Nilsen....
You've been down the dark detours
You have seen most of it all
Crashed into a million faces
but never listened to them talk
You've got so much on your mind right now
it doesn't even help to try to solve them all

You used to smile when hope and a pat on the back
would last throughout the day
As the rain kept fallin' down on you
you wouldn't let it wash the feeling away
Hope itself dried out in you
as you heard your man walking away without a word
And you thought...

Who's gonna make my decisions?
I can't make them on my own
Who's gonna rise to the occasion
when there's no one around?
Who the hell is gonna believe me?
I don't believe in myself
Who's gonna be there forever?

Well, it ain't gonna be him...

In case you didn't know
I really care for you
I just wish you all the best
If love should come and knock on your door
I hope it treats you with respect
I cannot count the times I've seen you, oh, just slip it away
'cause of broken hearts
And you thought...

Who's gonna make my decisions?
I can't make them on my own
Who's gonna rise to the occasion
when there's no one around?
Who the hell is gonna believe me?
I don't believe in myself
Who's gonna be there forever?

Well, it ain't gonna be him...

Everybody's going away
I'm barely hanging on
Torn up love is seeking me
What am I doing wrong?

Who's gonna make my decisions?
I can't make it on my own
Who's gonna rise to the occasion
when there's no one around?
Who the hell is gonna believe me?
I don't believe in myself
Who's gonna be there forever?
Well, it ain't gonna be him...

Who's gonna make my decisions?
'Cause I can't make it on my own
Who's gonna rise to the occasion
when there's no one around?
Who the hell is gonna believe me
when I don't believe in myself?
Who's gonna be there forever?

Well, it ain't gonna be him...
