The Life You Lead - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

There's a life that burns
When the night has come
Makes me understand
You're the one i see
And i can't say no
Take me by the hand
Can't believe that you want it to be
Just the game and we're playing the parts
Such a feeling, it won't let me be
Like an arrow that's straight for the heart

'cause the one you want
Is the one you lose
That's what people say
And the life you lead
Is the one you choose
Help me on the way

Tell me why you fill up my life this way
Take me high, together we'll fly away
Can't believe that you want it to be
Just a game and we're playing the parts
Such a feeling, it won't let me be
Like an arrow that's straight for the heart

'cause the one you want
We need someone
Is the one you lose
Help us along
That's what people say
Too many people can't find a way
And the life you lead
We need someone
Is the one you choose
To carry on
Help me on the way
Helping us on the way
