"Under Pressure (Queen/David Bowie cover)" as written by David Bowie, John Deacon, Brian May, Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor, Floyd Brown, Robert Van Winkle and Mario Johnson....
Pressure
It's pressing down on me
Pressing down on you

Under pressure
That burns a building down
Tears a family apart
Puts people on streets

That's OK
It's the terror of knowing what this world is about
Watching some good friends scream, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow - gets me higher
Puts people on the streets

OK
Chippin around - kick my brains around 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 scream, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow - gets me higher

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence if it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn

Why, why, why?
Love, 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

Because 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 our last dance
This is ourselves

Under pressure
Pressure
Pressure
Pressure
