"Can't Take That Away" as written by Peter Kenneth Frampton and Jonathan Cain....
Standing in the spotlight, it's hard to see the truth
My time had come to trust someone
Behind my back they knew

Never saw it coming, but my world came crashing down
They gamble on your future, play the coldest game in town
What I've lost in a lifetime

Mistakes it's made me see
What's still in my heart
They can't take that away from me

Beyond all my frustration, there's a fire deep inside
It's been there since I started, I got nothing left to hide
As I climb the stairway, for a piece of higher ground
This time I'm looking straight ahead
Cause it's dangerous looking down

Like a fool I'd been waiting, until you came along
You made a blind man see
Your love made all the difference

And nobody, can't take that away from me
What I've lost in a lifetime
Mistakes it's made me see
What's still in my soul
They can't take that away from me

    General CommentThis is about someone blinded by the broken promises made by the music business types but he still has the woman he loves standing by him. More great work by Mr Frampton.
