Feat. the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
(J. House, A. Little)
Producer: Johnny Douglas
Album: Twenty Four Seven (99)

You see me smile but you paint an ugly face
Everything you do is all about the chase
Don't let them see you cry
Don't let them know
You won't lay down and die for their show

Why don't you go ahead tear my heart out
Why don't you go ahead hang me out to dry
Go ahead play your game, go ahead
Spread my name all over your blood red sky

They colour your stars till the light begins to fade
But never give up 'cause every dog has it's day
Don't let them see you cry
Don't let them know
You won't lay down and die for their show

Why don't you go ahead tear my heart out
Why don't you go ahead hang me out to dry
Go ahead play your game, go ahead
Spread my name all over your blood red sky
Go ahead

Why don't you go ahead, go ahead, go ahead
Why don't you go ahead hang me out to dry
I said go ahead play your game, go ahead play your game, go ahead play your game
Your blood red sky
Why don't you go ahead tear my heart out
Why don't you go ahead lay me out to dry
Go ahead
I said go ahead play your game, go ahead
Spread my name all over your blood red sky
Go ahead
Why don't you go ahead tear my heart out
Why don't you go ahead hang me out to dry
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go ahead and hang my heart out
I said go ahead and play your game, go ahead
Spread my name all over your blood red sky
Your blood red sky
Blood red sky
