Lyrics

I made a resolution and I plan to keep my work
But I need you to make it work
You’ve got to read the message, understand what’s on my mind
Cause not to see would be a crime
And we could lose it anytime

We’ve got to show some respect
We’ve got to learn to protect
Don’t take it for granted, I know
That if you want to stay close
We’ve got to show some respect

But I believe in working, then I believe in a little help
Cause I’m not a light unto myself
Without a thing of value, why settle for second best
We don’t know what’s up ahead
And we can’t let ourselves forget

We’ve got to show some respect
We’ve got to learn to protect
Don’t take it for granted, I know
That if you want to stay close
We’ve got to show some respect

For the things that I love about you
From the woman that you see inside
Don’t let it walk out the door
Love follows everytime

  1. Amazing picture. The quality is superb. Thank you.

    I really like “Show Some Respect”, but I can’t really understand the lyrics. Is she talking about a relationship with a guy?

  2. Reading the lyrics again, I feel it’s about a woman telling a man if he wants to be close to her, he has to respect her (as she has to respect him – “We’ve got to show some respect”) and learn to protect the relationship as themselves. It’s a very interesting message, but I’m not certain about it.

    • Yes i think also that’s what are the lyrics about , it’s great rock song and it deals with the eternal song subject of relationships! But great powerful vocals of Tina on that one!

    Last Tuesday I spent almost the whole day listening to this song as she played it in Karslruhe and Oldenbug. I´ve always loved the song, but it sounded amazing in these shows!
    Love you guys for all the stuff you are sharing with us!! Thanks a lot!

    • Hey Tinaroo, your welcome, glad you enjoy it and there will be more of course, we are just getting started !-)
      And concerning the song, it does sound very powerful live, i would have loved to see it live in real!
