The Real World - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

Lead vocal - john miles

One more compromise i won't be making
One more easy way out i won't be taking
So many chances don't come twice
So many eyes are made of ice
One more cheating hand i won't be shaking

One more substitute i won't be trying
One more piece of the rock that i'm not buying
So many times we stand and fight
So many reasons can't be right
One more simple truth i'm not denying

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many fools who don't think twice
Too many ways to pay the price
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

One more sacrifice i won't be making
One more golden rule i won't be breaking
No one to let me state my case
No one to tell me to my face
One more sweet suprise i won't be faking

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

Too many lonely hearts in the real world
Too many lonely nights in the real world
Too many games that i can't play
Too many windmills in my way
Don't wanna live in the real world
