You’ve been looking for an opening to set you free

You’ve been burning inside to say,

"Look at me"

So many of them with the staring eyes and the sad doll smiles –

What do they see?

You’ve got no friends tonight, you are on your own

Are the rest of us busy? You should have known

Catch up with work, you know you can’t

‘Cos deep down inside, you know what you want

 

Don’t give a damn, Baby, don’t give a damn

You know you’ve got your own life to lead –

Do what you can

Get on your way, you can do what you like any day

Baby

Let a little love that you lack, lead the way

And don’t look back

Don’t give a damn

Make your life a game while you can

 

Here you are, watching, waiting,

There they are –

On the pavements, in the subways, leaning on the bar

Passing you by, never catching your eye

So? Here come some more – Which one’s for you?

You set up to speak to them but you hold back

It’s the traffic, the music, or pride that nags

You turn away. Why don’t you dare?

Why don’t you let go?

Nobody cares

 

Don’t give a damn, Baby, don’t give a damn

You know you’ve got your own life to lead –

Do what you can

Get on your way, you can do what you like anyday

Baby

Let a little love that you lack, lead the way

And don’t look back

Don’t give a damn

Make your life a game while you can
