Well the streets are littered with a poor man’s pain
And the dreams that he had that he tossed away
It’s no good talking about yesterday
When they’re knocking down your door
Well you can pray for money
You can pray for love
You can talk about the things that you wish you’d done
Dwelling on a loss that you should have won
Makes you a bitter man

So step out the man (step out the man)
Open the curtains (open the curtains)
One thing’s for sure (one thing’s for sure)
Nothing is certain
So run run lose your heavy heart
Let the band play and the camera start to flash
Man, what a scene
Faces on the cover a magazine
And the world moves fast, but you’re standing still
The thoughts you had they make you feel ill
It’s like your scaling a forty foot wall
Oh baby sod ‘em all

Well you can’t walk fast with a heavy heart
As the things you build well they just fall apart
You’ve ended up back up at the start
And you’re crawling up the wall
Time doesn’t wait around
The tick of the clock’s the only sound
The minutes pass as the hand goes round
A life time tick-tock ticking down

So step out the man (step out the man)
Open the curtains (open the curtains)
One thing’s for sure (one thing’s for sure)
Nothing is certain
So run run lose your heavy heart
Let the band play and the camera start to flash
Man, what a scene
Faces on the cover a magazine
And the world spins fast, but you’re standing still
The thoughts you had they make you feel ill
It’s like your scaling a forty foot wall
Oh baby sod ‘em all

So step out the man (step out the man)
Open the curtains (open the curtains)
One thing’s for sure (one thing’s for sure)
Nothing is certain
So run run lose your heavy heart
Let the band play and the camera start to flash
Man, what a scene
Faces on the cover a magazine
And the world spins fast, but you’re standing still
The thoughts you had they make you feel ill
It’s like your scaling a forty foot wall
Oh baby sod ‘em all
