Big Country – Look Away lyrics

This time we run
This time we hide

This time we draw on all the fire we have inside.
We need some time to find a place
Where I can wipe away the madness from your face.

Our name is out
Our name is known

Our name is everywhere
But who knows where we're flown.
I never meant to kill a man

But I will show you how to live like no one can.

So look away
Look away

Hide your eyes from the land where I lie cold.
Look away

Look away from the lies in the stories that were told.
Look away

Look away from the love that I hide way down deep in my soul.

I met you wild in a snowed up town

When I was waiting tied and bound to be sent down.
Then I broke loose
You weren't around

So I raised banks and trains until I tracked you down.

Now look away
Look away
.. .

You followed me why I said no

You lay with me when there was nowhere safe to go.
We made some friends
But now it's done

I always knew that we would never find the sun.

So look away
Look away
.. .
