Written by Doug Harvey

You can run but you can’t hide
The devil’s always running by your side
And you will never be satisfied
You can run but you just can’t hide

You’ve got a secret that you keep inside
It makes you cheat, it makes you lie
It’ll make you old before your time
That’s for sure

That little something that you can’t tell
Keeps you trapped inside your private hell
You let it cast its magic spell
Over you

Repeat Chorus

You’re gonna have to learn to play the game
Face the music and take the blame
It’s not so bad once you face the shame
Then it’s over

Repeat Chorus

If I was you
I’d spill all the beans
They say you feel better
When you finally come clean
There’s no free lunch in this world
And there’s no perfect time
You’ve always got to pay the price
To keep your peace of mind

Repeat Chorus
