Shadows Of Grief - Lyrics by Uriah Heep

You're looking at me like I must be mad,but I've been through all this before.
You'll kick and kick until I'm down,so don't think of comin' past my door.
Oh No!
You think love is such a pain.
So the more it hurts the more you laugh.
Just take it and shake it up and down,till you think you've had enough.
But you won't get enough of my love.
If you want to carry on the same old way,treatin' everyone like a piece of dirt.
Just take it and break it and throw it away.
There won't be anyone left to hurt.
North, south, east and west,wherever you go you'll find the same.
And the only way you'll ever learn,just realize that you're to blame.
