Here's another one

Graham Goble - Stop

Lyrics:
When the road is long and you can't lift the load you must carry,
when you must be strong but you know there is no way to turn,
when you lose everything that you've loved and can't find the strength that you need

Stop, take time out, look around, see who is lonely
down deep in your heart, late in the night - if you could only stop

When the wind blows cold and your troubles have no understanding,
when you must be bold but you know you have no place to hide,
when you find out the things you believe won't come to rescue you now

Stop, take time out, look around, see who is lonely
down deep in your heart, late in the night - if you could only stop

And when your life is going nowhere and you cry out in despair
it can never be too late, find a door for your escape!

When you lose all the things that you love and can't find a help that you need

3x:
Stop, take time out, look around, see who is lonely
down deep in your heart, late in the night - if you could only stop
“If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.”

one more...

Sunrise Avenue - Fairytale Gone Bad...

This is the end, you know,
Lady, the plans we had went all wrong
We ain't nothing but fight and shout and tears

We got to a point, I can't stand
I've had it to the limit; I can't be your man
I ain't more than a minute away from walking

We can't cry the pain away
We can't find a need to stay
I slowly realize there's nothing on our side
------------------------------------------------
Chorus:

Out of my life, Out of my mind,
Out of the tears, we can't deny,
We need to swallow all our pride,
And leave this mess behind,
Out of my head, Out of my bed,
Out of the dreams we had, they're bad,
Tell them it's me, who made you sad,
Tell them the fairytale gone bad!
-------------------------------------------

Another night and I bleed,
They all make mistakes and so did we,
But we did something we can never turn back right.

Find a new one to fool,
Leave and don't look back. I won't follow,
We have nothing left, It's the end of our time.

We can't cry the pain away,
We can't find a need to stay,
There're no more rabbits in my hat, to make things right.

Chorus (2x)

Out of my life, Out of my mind,
Out of the tears we can't deny,
We need to swallow all our pride,
And leave this mess behind,
Out of my head, Out of my bed,
Out of the dreams we had, they're bad,
Tell them it's me who made you sad,
Tell them the fairytale gone bad,

Tell them the fairytale gone bad...
Tell them the fairytale gone bad...

Depending on where you live in China - you may be able to get ahold of English CD's from foreign teachers and/or workers.  For the last few years in America - music CDs have included the lyrics to the songs in a small booklet provided with the CD.

If you have the songs, but not the lyrics - then use the Internet to search for the lyrics:

For example, with Google, you would type:  <Name of Song> <Name of Band> lyrics
