Peter Frampton – Can't Take That Away lyrics

Standing in the spotlight - it's hard to see the truth
My time had come to trust someone
Behind my back they knew
Never saw it coming - but my world came crashing down
They gamble on your future - play the coldest game in town
What I've lost in a lifetime
Mistakes it's made me see
What's still in my heart
They can't take that away from me
Beyond all my frusration - there's a fire deep inside
It's been there since I started - I got nothing left to hide
As I climb the stairway - for a piece of higher ground
This time I'm looking straight ahead
Cause it's dangerous looking down
Like a fool I'd been waiting - until you came along
You made a blind man see
Your love made all the difference
And nobody.... Can't take that away from me
What I've lost in a lifetime
Mistakes it's made me see
What's still in my soul
They can't take that away from me
