Set Me Up
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 [Chorus] 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 [Chorus] 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 [Chorus] People said to me Time's your enemy It may heal a wound but it won't hide a scar [Chorus] And the only thing to do Is to yourself be true 'Cause a head that's in the clouds, won't see the stars
