Lyrics:

I've been looking so long for you now that you wont get away from my grasp

You've been living so long in hinding in hinding behind that false mask

And you know that I know you ain't got that time to last

Your looks and you feelings are just the remains of your past

You're standing in the wings, there you wait for the curtain to fall

Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all

Yeah I know you're gonna scratch me and maim me and maul

You know I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call

Keep your distance walk away. Dont take his bait.

Don't you stray, don't fade away.

Watch your step, he's out to get you, come what may.

Don't you stray, from the narrow way.
