Level 42 – Set Me Up lyrics

Well a thing was said to me
Time's your enemy
It may heal a wound, but it won't hide a scar
And the only thing to do
Is to yourself be true
'cause a head that's in the clouds won't see the stars

When I was young I never walked away
I'd nail my colours to the wall
Though black and white soon turned to shades of grey
There is one thing that I really know for sure

Nobody's gonna set me up
Nobody's gonna set me up

There's a bitterness in you
'cause all you ever do
Is to drag your spirit screaming to the floor
But you gotta make your luck
Before your time is up
And they take you in your box out through the door

But I'm not saying I don't care at all
I'd rescue you before you drown
But if behind my back they start to talk
I'm a tougher kind of man this time around

Nobody's gonna set me up
Nobody's gonna set me up

When you look back and see what you have done
Well was it really that much fun
To laugh and kick the fallen ones

Gonna grow another skin
This one's getting thin
I've been bitten twice but never lost my nerve
Well you gotta hide the hurt
When people dish the dirt
'cause if you don't try nothing that's what you deserve

There are people with their eyes of green
Smiling when you take a fall
Maybe a friend or someone never seen
But even with my back against the wall

Nobody's gonna set me up
Nobody's gonna set me up

People said to me
Time's your enemy
It may heal a wound, but it won't hide a scar

Nobody's gonna set me up
Nobody's gonna set me up

And the only thing to do
Is to yourself be true
'cause a head that's in the clouds won't see the stars
