Barclay James Harvest

The Life You Lead

Play

There's a light 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 chose
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
