Take a Look
by Level 42



I`m a ragged man with a ragged heart
But I wear my soul with pride
You can see me on the road
See my carrying my home
And perhaps it seems that I`m all alone
But I`m happy here inside
You can keep your fancy dress
`Cause to me it don`t impress

When I look in your face
That camera smile looks out of place on you
By the look in your eyes
I can see you realize

So lend yourself to me
I`ll show you what could be

Well I`ve come so far down so many roads
I`ve experienced your pain
You know that that`s a fact
I can see the way you act
But I learned to see what was wrong with me
And I won`t go back again
I know I`ve made mistakes
But I also made the break

You surround yourself
With secrets you are afraid to show to the world
You convince yourself
There`s no other way to go don`t you
See the smile on my face
Does it look so out of place

So lend yourself to me
I`ll show you what could be (yes I will)

So many ways
For you to spend the passing days

Loving and living or losing and using
Life is forgiving so use it well
Feeling revealing or wheeling and dealing
Life`s not for stealing and time will tell

Take a look at your face
Take a look at your face

You must surely know
If man made heaven then man made hell
So take a look at yourself
What`s this secret you can`t tell me
(when I look in your face
I see that smile so out of place on you
And by the look in your eyes
I can see you realize, oh yeah)
