"Living a Lie"

You know it's all in the eyes
We could change the world tonight
Take my hand
It'll be alright

We're running the race to the line
We're fighting the good good fight
Take my hand
Pray to God I'm right

You know it's all in the eyes
And this cruel suspicious mind
Won't relax 'til I've seen yours cry
So cry once for all mankind
Cry twice for the love of your life
Take my hand
It'll be alright

You know it's all in the eyes
We could change the world tonight
Take my hand
It'll be alright
