KEN HENSLEY "IT WON'T LAST"

(Hensley) From Blood On The Highway
You can run away
You can choose to stay
Deny the fact, put on a lousy act
You can hide your face
In some new favourite place
Maybe youíll stay a while
Maybe youíll even smile
But it wonít last

No need to take the blame
No need to change your name
It wasnít your mistake
You were trapped and you had to escape
Go on and ride the crest
Thinking itís you thatís blessed
Wear a new coat of paint
Act like the purest saint
But it wonít last

But you canít hide it from your eyes
Deep in your heart you hate the lies
Somehow the fear will
Always be too near
And, just like your last mistake
The road you take
Will lead you here, to me
Itís clear that it wonít last

Now that youíve heard the voice
Could be your final choice
Youíre looking one last chance
Straight in the face
Stand up and fight the fight
Against all thatís wrong inside
Just turn and walk away
Into a brighter day
Then it might last

You did it time and time again
It always ended up the same
How did you hide from all the pain
You left behind
One day youíll turn around
Totally alone with no way out
I have no doubt Ďcause
