Hideaway
written by Gary Marks © 1994 Arewea Co. ASCAP

Victory has slipped away.
The best laid plans have laid you again.
You hear a hollow scream,
sounded like you but that’s too hard
to believe.
 
Time to escape without warning
so no one will notice you
 
in your hideaway
many worlds away from the fear.
In your hideaway where you never lose,
never kneel from the pain.
 
Swing a deal to get your fill.
Who and what’s dispensable –
a test of your will.
You make an enemy
out of love and anything that won’t stay still.
 
You think you’re one move from winning –
you’re nothing, you’re no where close,

in your hideaway
many worlds away from the fear.
In your hideaway where you never lose,
never kneel from the pain.
 
You remember there was one right kiss
that rocked the night
and lured you too close to life

in your hideaway
many worlds away from the fear.
In your hideaway where you never lose,
never feel the pain.
