"Downtempo" as written by and Roy Neville Francis Stride....
I've been down on the ground before
With a head and a heart that's torn
With the feeling in a can that I can't leave home
In a crowded room, but you feel alone

But like a bad penny, I'm coming back
I never got lost, just got on the wrong track
But I'm turning it around, compass in my hand
I'm gonna make mistakes 'cause they make me what I am

It doesn't matter where you're from
It's where you're going that keeps you strong
And when everyone says you're wrong
Stick two fingers up, turn around and carry on

When you find that you're close to the edge
Don't step back, step forward instead
A leap of faith or a madman's scheme
If it hurts then it works, there's no in-between

Don't sleep, no time to rest
You gotta give 'til you got nothing left
You can push me off the edge and I'll take the fall
I'd rather die trying than not try at all

It doesn't matter where you're from
It's where you're going that keeps you strong
And when everyone says you're wrong
Stick two fingers up, turn around and carry on

My arms are open, my hands are full
My heart is like a waterfall
I may be broken but I'm standing tall
My heart is like a waterfall

It doesn't matter where you're from
It's where you're going that keeps you strong
And when everyone says you're wrong
Stick two fingers up, turn around and carry on

It doesn't matter where you're from
It's where you're going that keeps you strong
And when everyone says you're wrong
Stick two fingers up, turn around and carry on
