postcards from the edge lyrics – contingency plan

you say there’s a sadness in my eyes
inevitable when surrounded by lies
settle for second best without a fight
i’ll be sold out when the price is right

when the stars are gone
you can carry on
hold your head up high
and the clouds roll by

i don’t care what you say
you never meant that much to me, anyway
just keep living for myself
cause you’ll never know what i thought or how i felt

you say i’m selling myself short
sharing my heart only as a last resort
“you’ll never pull yourself through”
isolation from all i knew

where’s your smile now?
you’ll still wonder how
i held my head up high
when i p*ssed you by

i’m not ending today
did you think that i’d just lay down and die?
did you think that you meant that much in my life?
