Now, City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long and council rangers work in collaboration with SAFE for the betterment of animals, by preventing them from roaming the streets or being kept in cages.Ms Hedley said carers can be located anywhere for SAFE to try to find a foster home, and sometimes a new permanent home, in the digital age.”I’ve saved animals over the years from all sorts of places. They don’t have to be in a specific location,” she said.”Animals can stay in their area in foster homes and we can advertise them online.”If I get a call about an animal in trouble I’m not going to say ‘oh, it’s too hard’.

People from the Lort Smith Hospital in Victoria, AWL Queensland, AWL NSW, Dogs Homes of Tasmania, SAFE in WA and AWL SA met with workers, volunteers and carers.Richard Mussell, president of Animal Welfare League Australia, said that SAFE WA had been highly influential in educating welfare centres across Australia about the foster care model.”It’s difficult for local government to manage dogs and cats,” Mr Mussell said.”Quite often they don’t have a bricks and mortar facility and they often don’t have an RSPCA or an AWL in that area.”Working with volunteer groups — and a foster model where you’re spreading the care across many people — is a perfect way of trying to address that.”His facility in Adelaide alone has seen the numbers of foster carers, in the homes of South Australians, double since they adopted the SAFE model.Support in remote and regional areasMs Hedley has been dedicating her life to the cause of re-homing animals since 2003 when she founded SAFE after finding dogs roaming the streets of towns across   the Pilbara. (ABC North West: Susan Standen)
More than 23,000 animals have been re-homed by SAFE and well over 70 per cent have gone to other parts of Australia with a very low return rate of animals, even though Ms Hedley does take animals back if it does not work out.”With enough footage, Skype and honest carers, you can get enough of a feel for an animal,” Ms Hedley said.”It can be a dog in Broome and a new owner in Albany, it opens up a whole new world.”People are matched with dogs or cats that suit their needs, and after lengthy discussions between SAFE volunteers, foster carers, and the prospective new owners, animals are transported to new homes.Hema Mageswaran from Karratha always wanted a dog, but had no experience with pets at all.She said her fostering came with a lot of education and support from SAFE.When the new owners contacted Ms Mageswaran, they were keen to know about behaviours, sports, outdoors, temperament and her actual size before buying her.”The SAFE model in WA offers the prospective new owner the opportunity to speak to the [foster] carer and get information about the animal’s behaviour — how they might be with small children, how they might be with other animals, whether they are digging up the yard or whatever,” Mr Mussell said.When SAFE volunteers drop her at Karratha airport, Stella will fly to Perth and be collected to travel by car to her new Esperance home.Mr Mussell said it is this diversity of operations that is key to educating national members about the benefits of home-based foster care.He said he believed the ‘no bricks and mortar’ model is cost-effective and better for animals, and the community. She was working for the Australian Bureau of Statistics at the time. We fly them all over the place.”In a deal with Qantas, the animals travel on the passenger discounted rate and new owners pay approximately $500 for the costs of immunisation, de-sexing and microchipping and $150 for a flight.A real-life example of interstate travel recently came from the Tennant Creek area of the NT where the animal welfare person on the ground organised transport to Darwin, and from there the animal was advertised on local webpages and sites where carers were found.”We want extend our carer base,” Ms Hedley said.”People aren’t used to looking on a WA site for animals in the NT, so we need to work on that.”Wingellina is another remote location on the corner of WA, SA and NT where SAFE manages carers and adoption by getting animals to Alice Springs, then flies them to WA.”It’s like internet dating,” Ms Hedley said.”You make educated decisions for animals, as well as people.”I don’t want to offend people who have shelters, it’s not a condemnation of what was done before, but with technology nowadays we’re in a whole new world.”Animals in aged care facilitiesIn a recent national strategy paper, Animal Welfare League Australia advocated to help recognise aged care facilities that allow pets in an attempt to reduce numbers of abandoned animals by the elderly.Even though laws on pets are state-based, the issue is common across the whole of Australia, so aged care bodies are keen to work with AWL on creating a successful model that works.”One of the top five reasons why people will surrender a pet to an organisation like SAFE or AWL is because they’re moving into a facility where they don’t allow pets,” Mr Mussell said.”There’s masses of research to show that the human animal bond is very special, in particular as people are getting older.”The companionship of having an animal, even just giving people exercise or a reason to look after an animal, is positive for their wellbeing.”There’s an amazing aged care facility in Tamworth where they have all sorts of farm animals, rabbits and cattle dogs.”This facility had a program for their dementia residents with the rabbits and the effects have been phenomenal.”Matching people with pets

SAFE’s Sue Hedley says remote locations are no barrier in fostering-out animals. A Karratha woman is sharing her life mission with other welfare agencies to see that no healthy, re-homable animal is euthanased, and to get all abandoned pets out of cages.Sue Hedley and her team at Saving Animals From Euthanasia (SAFE) has inspired animal welfare groups across the country to reassess their business models.”To really do that completely you need a lot of behavioural support and a lot of people available for that,” she said.A visiting delegation of 12 people from Animal Welfare League Australia this week saw the evidence needed to inspire them to increase the numbers of volunteer, in-home foster carers of companion animals, in conjunction with their shelters.

Forever Young seniors choir rocks out on stage to Bon Jovi and AC/DC

For June Ellis and her husband, Cliff, the repertoire is a far cry from what they perform as long-serving members of their church choir.”I usually go from practice here on Thursday morning with rock and roll, to the church choir at night singing sacred songs, so I have variety,” Mrs Ellis said.Vocal support from famous artist

At 91 years of age, Frank Roberts is among the choir’s most senior members, and has performed with Forever Young since its inception eight years ago.”In old age, you have to have something to do, you’ve got to remain as active as you can,” he said.Forever Young was a re-introduction to singing for Mr Roberts, who said he had not performed a lot since a childhood stint in a church choir.He credited the choir with keeping him in good health and even better spirits.”I figure it keeps your lungs active with your breathing, plus if you get enjoyment out of it, it must be good for your health,” he said.

For the past four years, the choir has attracted well-known Australian musicians on to stage, including Normie Rowe, Wilbur Wilde and Mark Seymour.This year’s guest, Kate Ceberano, will sing several numbers with the choir, including a rendition of her raunchy hit, Pash.But the singer-songwriter said the community often forgot that sex, drugs and rock and roll were as much a part of older people’s lives as they were experiences of youth.”They actually lived through Sunbury. (ABC Central Victoria: Mark Kearney)
An orchestra of students from Bendigo school Girton Grammar provides musical accompaniment for the choir.Girton music teacher Laura Dusseljee, who founded the choir, said interactions between singers and school students made the experience more profound for both parties.”The youngsters love playing for the ‘oldies’, as they’re called affectionately by the children at school,” she said.”For the oldies, it’s time to get out, mingle, make friends, challenge their brains and their memories by learning new repertoire.”Also poignant is the way a song’s meaning changes when performed by a choir of senior citizens.In the hands of the choir, Talking Heads’ Road to Nowhere becomes a bittersweet dissertation on old age.”If Freddie Mercury sings Who Wants to Live Forever, that’s one thing, but when you get someone in their eighties singing it, it changes the whole meaning of the song,” Ms Dusseljee said.Musical mindset good for health

Frank Roberts, 91, says the Forever Young choir gives him purpose in later life. These are the people who were in their 20s when AC/DC hit,” she said.”We’re talking about people who are at the core of Australian rock.”Ceberano hoped those new to performing would use it as an opportunity to explore their talents and personalities.And not unlike the artists whose songs they perform, these ageing performers are not without some rock-star bravado.Asked whether he was excited to sing with Ceberano, Mr Roberts, with a wink, replied: “[The question is], is Kate Ceberano excited to be singing with us?” A choir of senior citizens performing a repertoire of rock songs is living proof you are never too old to try something new.The Forever Young choir in Bendigo, Victoria, has just one eligibility rule: singers must be aged 65 or older to take part.But it is their setlist that sets the 85-person choir apart from the pack.A sell-out concert at the 1,000-seat Ulumbarra Theatre this week opens with the Bon Jovi rock anthem You Give Love a Bad Name.Audiences leave with the sound of Aerosmith’s Dream On ringing in their ears.The choir even has its own roadie, a volunteer who plies the singers with snacks as well as making sure their uniforms — a black t-shirt featuring the group’s winged heart logo — are in good order.Meeting of the generations

The triceratops, named Topsy, also serves the family in a festive way each year.”We can’t fit a Christmas tree in the house, so the kids decorate her with tinsel and lights and that’s their Christmas tree.”We knew she died in a pine forest as they found pine cones in the rocks around her.”

Dinosaur fans John and Bonnie were married with the T-Rex in the surgery grounds. A Brisbane veterinarian with a love of dinosaurs is celebrating the return of a raptor sculpture that had been stolen more than two years ago.Police returned the raptor to Allan O’Grady from Eaton’s Hill Veterinary Surgery after it was discovered during a raid at Albany Creek earlier this month.Dr O’Grady said it was good to have the dinosaur back home.”She’s in a sorry state as when they stole her they broke the feet and the toes,” he said.”She has come back badly damaged and it will take some restoration to get her back in her original state.”The raptor was found along with a quantity of cannabis, steroids and other controlled dugs and utensils during the raid.

“The day she was stolen was a Saturday morning in 2016 and it was pretty high up as they were up on the front gate,” Dr O’Grady told ABC Radio Brisbane’s Craig Zonca and Rebecca Levingston.”It’s about 20 foot up (6.1 metres), so it was well planned to remove it as they would have needed ladders, tools and a ute to get it away.”It definitely wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment thing; it was well planned.”The female raptor, which Dr O’Grady said children had called Steven, was replaced with a replica about 15 months ago.”It was the same dinosaur but a different colour,” he said. (Facebook: Eatons Hill Veterinary Surgery)
Dr O’Grady said it was “good police work putting two-and-two together”.”There’s not many raptors around and we put in a police report when they were stolen,” he said.”They were in the police database as they came and took photographs, so they were aware of it.”It was also well publicised when she first went missing.” The dinosaurs can be seen from the road perched up on the veterinary surgery sign.Many nearby residents have marked special events in front of the dinosaurs, including having their wedding photos taken there. (Facebook: Eatons Hill Veterinary Surgery)
For the love of dinosaursDr O’Grady said his love of dinosaurs started at the age of six and prompted him to become a collector over the years.”I’ve been collecting real fossils for many years and we have a triceratops skull in the kitchen at home on a mobile stand,” he said.”It came from America and it took me seven years to get it while it was being cut out of the matrix and put back together again.”

The Chainsmokers – This Feeling lyrics

[Verse 1: Kelsea Ballerini]
I’ll tell you a story before it tells itself
I’ll lay out all my reasons, you’ll say that I need help
We all got expectations, and sometimes they go wrong
But no one listens to me, so I put it in this song
[Pre-Chorus: Kelsea Ballerini]
They tell me think with my head, not that thing in my chest
They got their hands at my neck this time
But you’re the one that I want, if that’s really so wrong
Then they don’t know what this feeling is like
[Chorus: Kelsea Ballerini & Andrew Taggart]
And I say yeah-eah
Yeah-eah-eah-eah
Yeah-eah
Yeah-eah-eah-eah
And I say yeah-eah
Yeah-eah-eah-eah
Yeah-eah
Yeah-eah-eah-eah
[Verse 2: Andrew Taggart]
I’ll tell them a story, they’ll sit and nod their heads
I tell you all my secrets, and you tell all your friends
Hold on to your opinions, and stand by what you say (stand by what you say)
In the end, it’s my decision, so it’s my fault when it ends
[Pre-Chorus: Kelsea Ballerini & Andrew Taggart]
They tell me think with my head, not that thing in my chest
They got their hands at my neck this time
But you’re the one that I want, if that’s really so wrong
Then they don’t know what this feeling is like
[Chorus: Andrew Taggart]
And I say yeah-eah
Yeah-eah-eah-eah
Yeah-eah
Yeah-eah-eah-eah
And I say yeah-eah

They tell me think with my head, not that thing in my chest
They got their hands at my neck this time
But you’re the one that I want, if that’s really so wrong

[Bridge: Kelsea Ballerini & Andrew Taggart]
My friends say no-o, no-o-o

Lil Uzi Vert – New Patek Lyrics

Had to tell that lil girl don’t trip

Avenged Sevenfold – Mad Hatter Lyrics

[Verse 1]
From the manner of
Cutting whisper
Rising vapors through
Clouds of gold
Giving fire and
Change the demons
With undercurrents
Far too strong to haul
[Pre-Chorus]
There’s something up today
Fools are dancin’ in the rain
Stopped by the acid stain
And on the shelf, the jar that holds my brain
[Verse 2]
Nightfall haunts us all
From the shadows
Cynical beauty now
Lies the host
Before the flicker
There’s only blackness
The end is coming
All my friends are dead
[Pre-Chorus]
There’s something up today
Fools are dancin’ in the rain
Stopped by the acid stain
And on the shelf, the jar that holds my brain
[Chorus]
Rid by an empty world
Suffer the grudge you awad burn
Madness will crawl inside
Alter the selfish stage
Feeding on the voices in my head
[Guitar Solo]
(Slowly we’ll learn)
(Slowly we’ll learn)
(Slowly we’ll learn)
(Slowly we’ll learn)
(Slowly we’ll learn)
[Verse 3]
The unruled hedges we
Turn to someone
All those weeping will
Go unheard
Up on that once green hill
Around the mazes
And seeing the darkness
The jaws will take it slowly
[Pre-Chorus]
There’s something up today
Fools are dancin’ in the rain
Stopped by the acid stain
And on the shelf, the jar that holds my brain
[Chorus]
Rid by an empty world
Suffer the grudge you awad burn
Madness will crawl inside
Alter the selfish stage
You’re feeding all the voices in my head
You’re feeding all the voices in my head
They’re feeding all the voices in my head
They’re feeding all the voices in my head

Christina Perri – Distance (Duet) Lyrics

[Bridge: Christina Perri & Jason Mraz]
And I keep waiting for you to take me
You keep waiting to save what we have
[Chorus 1: Christina Perri with Jason Mraz]
So I’ll make sure to keep my distance
Say “I love you” when you’re not listening
And how long can we keep this up, up, up? [Verse 1: Christina Perri]
The sun is filling up the room and I can hear you dreaming
Do you feel the way I do, right now? [Verse 2: Christina Perri with Jason Mraz]
Please don’t stand so close to me, I’m having trouble breathing
I’m afraid of what you’ll see, right now
I’ll give you everything I am
All my broken heartbeats until I know you’ll understand
[Chorus 1: Christina Perri & Jason Mraz]
And I will make sure to keep my distance
Say “I love you” when you’re not listening
And how long can we keep this up, up, up? [Chorus 2: Christina Perri & Jason Mraz]
Make sure to keep my distance
Say “I love you” when you’re not listening
How long till we call this love, love, love? I wish we would just give up
Cause the best part is falling, call it anything but love
[Chorus 1: Christina Perri & Jason Mraz]
And I will make sure to keep my distance
Say “I love you” when you’re not listening
And how long can we keep this up, up, up?

Walking alone in the street
Everyone is an addict
Know what its gonna be
[?] the motivation
Constant communication
Everyone wanna get chose like Moses
Came up from the earth smelling like roses
Talkin’ the new edition, [?] too efficient
Man that’s a guinea pig, I did it with no permission
I told him to call a friend
Told him they didn’t listen
To very scary, to
Zero or one? That code is like, [?]
Not black and white
[?]
Who doesn’t understand? [?]You were supposed to survive
You know we gon’ die
[?]
[Chorus: Childish Gambino]
Everybody move your body, now do it
Here is something that’s gonna make you move and groove
(Please don’t lose that tempo) Algorythm
([?] how hard they say so) Algorythm
[Verse: Childish Gambino]
If you feelin’ this shit, I wanna hear you say “Hell yeah”
If you feelin’ this shit, wanna hear you say “Hell yeah”
[Verse: Toronto performance]
We still ballin’ we still movin’
We got a million and a half and we still [?]
Everybody sayin’ that we don’t got enough
[When] we talk about all of that crazy stuff
The internet, the media, the information, we killin’ ’em
One-by-one, two-by-two, get dragged by [?]
Nobody can tell you what to do
Nobody can tell you what to say
And everybody knows that we’re only going one way
And we gon say
[Verse: Atlanta Performance]
Everybody wanna feel the same way
But everybody wanna do the same thing
And if you talkin’ that real bullshit, then you might as well buy that golden ring
Too many lovers
Too many colors
Too many different
Too many sinners
I got to get it
But everybody tryna listen to the same one
And everybody buys the same gun
And everybody gonna make you feel like you don’t need to act like
You don’t have, but you do
And this the real shit that we gon’ do with this
[Chorus: Childish Gambino]
Everybody move your body, now do it
Here is something that’s gonna make you move and groove
(Please don’t lose that tempo) Algorythm
([?] how hard they say so) Algorythm
[Chorus: Childish Gambino]
Everybody move your body, now do it
Here is something that’s gonna make you move and groove
Algorythm, Algorythm
[Instrumental, Preacher] Do you see me? [Preacher: Childish Gambino]
As we stand together
Promise me
That we’ll teach the children
That we must be free
There is no joy in sorrow
No truth untold
And the cruel above us
Are tired and old
Mother infinity
Why do you go, away from me?

Lil Wayne – Just Chill Lyrics

[Intro: Lil Wayne]
[?] got a haircut
Mu in this bitch, Scoob in this bitch with me
[Verse 1: Lil Wayne]
So much shit on my mind, I just hope I don’t smell like it
The motherfuckers pointing fingers
Be the same ones that have nail bitin’
Real niggas, still real niggas, you new niggas, just lil’ niggas
When ya shit fall, don’t be surprised
Acting like you didn’t hear timber
I’m caffeinated, I’m half-sedated
I started from the bottom, I gravitated
I’m validated, I’m a trigger happy nigga
And it’s sad to say it, but I had to say it
I had to do it, I had to stunt, act like I had what I had for once
With all of my thank yous added up
I still can’t thank Birdman enough, I woke up in a new Tyra Banks
I’ve been gettin’ money since Shabba Ranks
The car I’m in brand spankin’ new, it just got spanked
Real niggas say rest in peace to DJ Screw
Rest in peace to Pimp C too
Fuck your bulletproof vest, blat, I still need proof, my nigga
I hate you like mustard, I’m disgustin’
I’m aiming at your chest, hit your face, I’m just rusty
Cherish every step that we take, some of us clumsy
Lookin’ for a breath of fresh air, it’s hidin’ from me, fuck
Mall roll it up in the leaf, weed stronger than Zangief
I last longer than an antique, her pussy cummin’ like a stampede
She cooks, fucks and clean, the type of bitch that every man need
The type of bitch that every man leave
That ain’t cool, and she wearin’ sleeves, but chill, just chill
[Chorus: Justin Bieber]
Girl, you gotta chill, uh, I just gotta tell you how I feel, yeah
Girl, you gotta chill, uh, you know that I’ll always keep it real
You just need to chill, oh, oh
Girl, you gotta chill, girl, you gotta chill (gotta chill)
Girl, you gotta chill, girl, you gotta chill (gotta chill)
Yeah, girl, you gotta chill
[Verse 2: Lil Wayne]
You could fuck all these bitches, except my bitches
Yeah right, I wish, with all three wishes
Man I swear she got too attached, had to cut the umbilical
Man I swear I’m so armed, I feel like I got tentacles
Niggas bumpin’ their gums, I feel like Orajel
Got ’em scratchin’ their head, combin’ out broken nails
See I give ’em my love, but I’m an indian giver
Got my ear to the streets, I hear the enemy whisper
I break the bank with a sledgehammer
Cellphone rings like Saturn
Bitch let a nigga breathe, breathe like a dragon
I hide money everywhere, that’s my hidden talent
One time for them gangstas, fuck that, two times for them gangstas
If you got a problem, I’ll fix that like, yeah nigga I’m maintenance
Got a bad bitch and she anxious, bitch, you just an acquaintance
I’ll ask a rat, “Why be a rat?” then kill him while he explainin’
Tell your foot soldiers to walk light, handful of real niggas left
And if any nigga wanna step to me tell ’em hurry up and take bigger steps
My bitch deep, I get in depth, that’s what the fuck I’m talkin’ ’bout
She dyed her pussy hair red, she said she had to roll the red carpet out
That’s real
So real
[Chorus: Justin Bieber]
Yeah, you know that I’ll always keep it real
You just need to chill, oh, oh
Girl, you gotta chill, girl, you gotta chill (gotta chill)
I just gotta tell you how I feel, yeah, girl you gotta chill
Girl, you gotta chill, girl, you gotta chill (gotta chill)
Girl, you gotta chill, girl, you gotta chill (gotta chill)
Girl, you gotta chill, girl, you gotta chill (gotta chill)
Yeah, girl, you gotta chill, girl, you gotta chill
Girl, you gotta chill
[Outro: French Montana & Justin Bieber]
Yeah, Tunechi
Shawty is you gon’ ride ’til it’s over? (Ride, ’til it’s over)
Man we gettin’ high, never sober (High, never sober)
Still ridin’ dirty ’til it’s over (haaan, ayy, ayy, ayy)

Poppy – Fashion After All Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m working every angle
My lipstick is a staple
My hair and makeup makes you envious and want to die
I’m worthy to some money
I’m saving every penny
I’m in Japan and Africa and I don’t need a guy
My wrists are terrorists
My lips gave you a kiss
My consciousness thinks this is making me feel fabulous
[Pre-Chorus]
Do what I want
Say what I want
Wear what I want
Talk how I want
Walk how I want
Do what I want
Wear what I want
[Chorus]
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all
[Verse 2]
Give me a second to think
Give me something cold to drink
Give me a reason I should listen to another word
I’m revolutionary
A little bold and scary
I’m making plans to save the world and I don’t need your help
I’m on another level
There’s nothing I can’t handle
I’m watching you watch me the way the devil watches angels
[Pre-Chorus]
Do what I want
Say what I want
Wear what I want
Talk how I want
Walk how I want
Do what I want
Wear what I want
[Chorus]
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all
(It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all)

Carrie Underwood – Southbound Lyrics

[Verse 1]
We got a pontoon boat with a Yamaha
People dressed like they’re in Panama
Small town, spring break
Every weekend ’round this place
And there’s a bunch of boys tryna catch the eyes
Of all the pretty girls that are walking by
And those redneck margaritas are two for one at that old marina, yeah
Tan lines and gas station cheap sunglasses
They’re coming here from all around
[Chorus]
To get a little southbound, unwound, Tennessee Honey kinda buzz
Them south sounds up loud, summer drippin’ off of us
From the river bank to the party cove
Long as it floats, we’ll rock the boat
And it’s all lookin’ up when we get down, yeah
And get a little southbound, southbound
Get a little southbound, southbound
[Verse 2]
Moe got a ticket in a no wig zone
But Katie’s the one that should take it slow
‘Cause she’s dancin’ on the dock and it’s only two o’clock
Yeah, the fish ain’t bitin’ ’cause the party’s on
The old men are thinkin’ ’bout goin’ home
But those redneck margaritas are two for one at that old marina, yeah
[Chorus]
We’re gonna get a little southbound, unwound, Tennessee Honey kinda buzz
Then south sounds up loud, summer drippin’ off of us
From the river bank to the party cove
Long as it floats, we’ll rock the boat
And it’s all lookin’ up when we get down, yeah
And get a little southbound, southbound
Get a little southbound, southbound
Oh, yeah
[Bridge]
Yeah, we got the roof swing, swingin’ like a chandelier
Little bit of heaven on the water ride here
Don’t need much, just a couple of beers and you and me
Gotta love this time of year
Getting southbound, southbound
[Chorus]
So let’s get a little southbound, unwound, Tennessee Honey kinda buzz
Them south sounds up loud, summer drippin’ off of us
From the river bank to the party cove
Long as it floats, we’ll rock the boat
And it’s all lookin’ up when we get down
And get a little southbound, southbound
Get a little southbound, southbound
Let’s get a little southbound, southbound
Get a little southbound, southbound
Oh, yeah

XYLO – Tears And Tantrums lyrics

I’m just tryna dance my troubles away
Throw up my problems like money
But I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
No, I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
I’m just tryna move, but you’re in my way
Everywhere I look, I see your face
No, I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
No, I can’t control these tears and tantrums
I’ve been crying all night
Good God, I guess the boy of my dreams ain’t right
Thought I’d love him for life, oh
I didn’t wanna leave home
My girls hit me up on my phone like “no”
It’s a Saturday night, oh
Now I can almost see you in the strobe lights
Come on, tell me you’re sorry
But you’re not
So I’m just tryna dance my troubles away
Throw up my problems like money
But I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
No, I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
I’m just tryna move, but you’re in my way
Everywhere I look, I see your face
No, I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
No, I can’t control these tears and tantrums
I just [?]
Good God, they’re tryna stop me but it’s way too late
I won’t know when I’m done, oh
You know I hate feeling like this
I work myself into a state, I’m a right mess
No, I’m not drinking for fun, oh
I can almost see you in the strobe lights
I think I’ve had one too many
So I’m just tryna dance my troubles away
Throw up my problems like money
But I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
No, I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
I’m just tryna move, but you’re in my way
Everywhere I look, I see your face
No, I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
No, I can’t control these tears and tantrums
No, I can’t control these tears and tantrums
My tears keep on falling down
When I see you there in the crowd
These tears keep on falling for you
So I’m just tryna dance my troubles away
Throw up my problems like money
But I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
No, I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
I’m just tryna move, but you’re in my way
Everywhere I look, I see your face
No, I can’t stop crying on the dancefloor
No, I can’t control these tears and tantrums
No, I can’t control these tears and tantrums
No, I can’t control these
No, I can’t control these
No, I can’t control these
