    Level 42 - A floating life

    in your hands there's a photograph
    you look up, she begins to laugh
    so cold as she walks away
    and you know that it's time to pay
    you're caught in a web you spun yourself
    face to face with your failure this very day
    you call out her name you can't help yourself
    but you need love like you need a - kick in the head

    you worked hard for the things you own
    fancy cars and a country home
    gave it all for a glittering prize
    to be a face people recognise
    on the walls of your home there are works of art
    but you stare at the picture - on the floor
    the face of a man with an aching heart
    it's no fun to be famous anymore

    (you said )
    this is a sad day
    and I would gladly give it all away
    in exchange
    for a floating life

    shed your tears for a shallow dream
    let your cry be a primal scream
    a song through the mists of time
    a serenade to your concubine
    you were wrong to believe she could set you free
    you're trapped by the trappings - of success
    and you know the she'll never let you be
    'til the world knows the secrets - you confessed

    (you said)
    I see her cruel face
    my heart is nothing but an empty space
    and on this sad day
    I would gladly give it all away
    in exchange
    for a floating life

    neither asleep nor awake
    losing control you start to shake
    as the day begins to break

    they're gonna shoot you down in flames
    when that girl starts naming names
    there's nowhere to hide from your shame
