Inxs – Who Pays The Price lyrics

Yes it's dark sometimes
When the people are shoving
Pushing you into the ground
And you cry in the daylight
With the sun in your eyes
Even though you know your not alone

And it's all been felt before
You stare out through your window
And wonder if there's gonna be more

It brings you down
It's like a war
Who pays the price
If you want more

Quiet desperation of a million lives
Gonna make you change your ways
We got everything we wanted
But forgot how we got it
Just can't paint it golden anyway
And the strength of all you're giving
Is gonna make the changes
Tommorow's gonna bring a new day

It brings you down
It's like a war
Who pays the price
If you want more

As the years go by
Will it show on your face
Or stay hidden behind some door
Yeah you made your resolutions
With the will of a priest
But your not so sure anymore

And the reasons why you're living
Keep changing
Everytime you find a key you find more

It brings you down
It's like a war
Who pays the price
If you want more

[repeat till fade]
