LYRICS

Oh let me take you by the hand
Away from here to another land
Oh this land in which we live
Where people love and are meant to forgive

And you always prove me wrong
‘Cos you’re always putting me down

I can’t take this anymore
I decided to leave, walked through the door
Oh and why do you think I go
Because you know it can never be so

And you always prove me wrong
‘Cos you’re always putting me down
A-a-a-a, la la la
A-a-a-a-a
A-a-a-a, la la la
A-a-a-a-a

So let me take you by the hand
Away from here to another land
Oh this land in which we live
Where people love and are meant to forgive

And you always prove me wrong
‘Cos you’re always putting me down
A-a-a-a, la la la
A-a-a-a-a
A-a-a-a, la la la
A-a-a-a-a
A-a-a-a, la la la
A-a-a-a-a
A-a-a-a, la la la
A-a-a-a-a
