It Won't Last

Hensley Ken

You can run away
You can choose to stay 
Deny the fact
Put on a lousy act 
You can hide your face 
In some new favourite place 
Maybe you'll stay a while 
Maybe you'll even smile 
But it won't last

No need to take the blame
No need to change your name
It wasn't your mistake
You were trapped 
And you had to escape
Go on and ride the crest
Thinking it's you that's blessed
Wear a new coat of paint
Act like the sweetest saint
But it won't last

But you can't hide it from your eyes
Deep in your heart you hate the lies
Somehow the fear will always be too near
And just like your last mistake
The road you take will lead you here
To me it's clear, it's never gonna last

Now that you've heard the voice 
Could be your final choice 
You're looking one last chance 
Straight in the face 
Stand up and fight the fight 
Against all that's wrong inside 
Just turn and walk away 
Into a brighter day
Then it might last

You did it time and time again 
It always ended up the same 
How did you hide from all the pain 
You know you left behind 
One day you'll turn around 
Totally alone with no way out 
I have no doubt 'cause
You can't hide it from your eyes
