Take a mask, see where it’s at
Make a face to show the world and that is that
Take a drink and throw it back
Convince yourself you wear the right hat

Brush your coat, comb your hair
Look at your watch and find out no-one’s there
Are you happy or are you sad?

Or are you lost inside, no matter how you try
To face the fact - you never get back
If you could run the race, if you could stand the pace
Face the fact – you never get back
Chances are you’ve gone too far
You never get back to who you are
Chances are like a shootin’ star
You never get back to where you are

If you had the time to savour all life’s wine
Face the fact – you wouldn’t do that
If you knew the future back in the past
Face the fact – you couldn’t do that

Chances are you’ve gone too far
You never get back to who you are
Chances are like a shootin’ star
You never get back to where you are

(Instrumental)

Or are you lost inside, swimming against the tide
Face the fact – you never get back
Tired of all those lies
Don’t care if you live or die
Face the fact – you never get back

Chances are you’ve gone too far
You never get back to who you are
Chances are like a shootin’ star
You never get back to where you are

Take your time, use your mind
To think about the monsters in your head
Are they soft or are they loud?
Do they make you want to hide away instead

No turnin’ back
Never do that

Or are you lost inside no matter how you try
To face the fact – you never get back
If you could run the race, if you could stand the pace
Face the fact – you never get back

Chances are you’ve gone too far
You never get back to who you are
Chances are like a shootin’ star
You never get back to where you are
Ooh Ooh Oh Oh, Ooh Ooh etc.
