No One Is to Blame
by Howard Jones



You can look at the menu
But you just can't eat
You can feel the cushions
But you can't have a seat

You can dip your foot in a pool
But you can't have a swim
You can feel the punishment
But you can't commit the sin

(Chorus)
And you want her
And she wants you
We want everyone
And you want her
And she wants you
No one, no one
No one ever is to blame

You can build a mansion
But you can't live in
You're the fastest runner
But you're not allowed to win

Some break the rules
And learn to count the cost
The insecurity is the thing
That won't get lost

(Chorus)

You can see the summit
But you can't reach it
It's the last piece of the puzzle
But you just can't make it fit

Doctor says you're cured
But you still feel the pain
Aspirations in the clouds
But your hopes go down the drain

(Chorus)

No one ever is to blame
No one ever is to blame
