Ken Hensley – It Won't Last lyrics

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
