Red Lights Turn To Grey (Child In Disguise)
 
Lyrics
Hello, goodbye, you've got her now, for an hour at a time
It might be right and it might be wrong, at least it's worth the climb
You see her smile, you know its true, and then she slips away
Her face goes cold, expressionless
Red lights turn to grey, red lights turn to grey

She's a child in disguise, and you've seen it in her eyes, it's true
She's a child in disguise, and she's grown up to be wise with the likes of you

Your time is up, you've got to go, there's somewhere she's to be
'Cause talk is cheap, and so is love, but she is not for free
You saw her smile, you know its true, and then she slipped away
Her face went cold, expressionless
Red lights turn to grey, red lights turn to grey

She's a child in disguise, and you've seen it in her eyes, it's true
She's a child in disguise, and she's grown up to be wise with the likes of you

(1st Verse)

Red lights turn to grey, red lights turn to grey
