Heaven 17

Heaven 17 are an English New Wave synthpop band originating from Sheffield in the early 1980s. Originally a trio, the band comprised Martyn Ware (keyboards), Ian Craig Marsh (keyboards) (both previously with The Human League) and Glenn Gregory (vocals). Although most of the band's music was recorded in the 1980s, they have occasionally reformed to record and perform since then, playing their first ever live concerts in 1997. Marsh left the band in 2007 and Ware and Gregory continued to perform as Heaven 17 since then. more »

When I was young
I was told what to want
I've got a wife and babies too
I've tried so hard
But all my feelings have gone
So have my wife and money too

So I'm giving up
Time for easy action
So I'm giving up
I'm gonna do what I want

I always worked if I envy part of the scheme of things (? )
One weeks work one weeks pay
I find it hard
The (? ) not so easy
So I'm heading up and moving out

Giving up
It's a cool reaction
Oh I'll give it up
Don't want to fight no more
Giving up
Time for easy action

There's always been a feeling down inside of me
I don't care I (? )
I'm off the wall

Giving up
Time for easy action
I'm giving up
I'm gonna do just what I want
Giving up
It's a cool reaction
Oh I'll give it up
Don't want to fight no more
Giving up
Time for easy action
Giving up
What I wanted was before
Giving up
It's a cool reaction
Giving up
I shall overcome
