Level 42 - Take A Look

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)
