take a look behind ya lyrics – billy squier

there’s trouble on the rise–you can see it in the eyes of the livin’
there’s an order to defy–there’s a room at the back of your mind
word gets out–what’s it all about
some take it in and some can do without
don’t hang out in the shadow of a doubt
it’s time you split before they sign you out
they’ll have you sing the blues…
take a look behind ya
take it on the run
take a look behind ya
look into the risin’ sun
you can dance, you can sing, but it doesn’t mean a thing without rhythm
you can slip–slide–stumble through the rest of your life
time won’t stop–never gonna stop ya
you push the limit ’til the day you drop
time don’t stop–race against the clock
you shun the risk–can you stand the shock
you got a lot to lose…
take a look behind ya
take it on the run
take a look behind ya
look into the risin’ sun
take a look behind ya
take it as it comes
take a look behind ya
don’t forget the things you done
you can run–you can hide but you never put aside what you’re feelin’
keep your balance–keep your stride–let it run through the heart of your life
time don’t stop–ready or not
you’ve got to give it everything you got
life don’t stop–take it to the top…
you miss a step feel the anchor drop
it all comes back to you…
