lyrics

Turning a cheek to the cold, cold world
She was running for weeks - and unwanted girl
What she saw was unpleasant, what she tasted was worse
She's an unwanted presence in a world that is cursed

Wherever she went it was always the same
Everyone seemed to be playing the game
Nothing for she to be doing but change
But that was the very thing
She couldn't do

Turning his back on the world that he knew
Acknowledging lack it was long overdue
His past was a mystery his present a mess
There were things in his hist'ry he found hard to confess

Wherever he went it was always the same
Everyone seemed to be playing the game
Nothing for he to be doing but change
But that was the very thing -
He couldn't!

IN this life you'll find suffering
In this life there is pain
In this life we all go around
Until it comes 'round again...

Blasting our way through this unfriendly age
Fighting our jealousy hatred and rage
Can love be the answer if our love bears no pain?
To lose what's not ours just to keep what we gain

Wherever we go seems it's always the same
Everyone seems to be playing the game
No other choice but surrender to change
But that is the very thing
We cannot do!
