Take A Look
Album: Staring At the Sun - Artist: Level 42



 
(M. King/R. Gould/M. Lindup/W. Badarou)

I'm a ragged man with a ragged heart
But I wear my soul with pride
You can see me on the road
See my carrying my home
And perhaps it seems that I'm all alone
But I'm happy here inside
You can keep your fancy dress
'Cos to me you don't impress

When I look at your face
That camera smile looks out of place on you
And by the look in your eyes
I can see you realize

  So lend yourself to me
  I'll show you what could be

I've come so far down so many roads
I've experienced your pain
You know that that's a fact
I can see the way you act
But I learnt to see what was wrong with me
And I won't go back again
I know I've made mistakes
But I also made the break

You surround yourself
With secrets you are afraid to show to the world
You convince yourself
There's no other way to go don't you
See the smile on my face
Does it look so out of place

  So lend yourself to me
  I'll show you what could be

  So many ways
  For you to spend the passing days

Loving and living or losing and using
Life is forgiving so use it well
Feeling revealing or wheeling and dealing
Life's not for stealing so use it well

Take a look at your face
Take a look at your face
You must surely know
If man made heaven then man made hell
Take a look at yourself
What's this secret you can't tell to me
(And when I look in your face
I see that smile so out of place on you
And by the look in your eyes
I can see you realise)
