Steve Hackett — Give It Away lyrics

A broken heart's not easy to mend
Why must you break it again
When you lose your prize possession
Look around you're no exception
Give it away
Your mind is all made up
When you lose your first love
You'll never feel that way
No-one can take her place
When you lose your self-expression
It's just time to change direction
Give it away
When you start you're lovers and friends
But when you part you're strangers again
Now the time just passes slowly
Time to live for yourself only
You watch the years go by
And she's no longer there
Then one day you will find
That you no longer care
When you lose your prize possession
Look around you're no exception
When you lose your self-expression
It's just time to change direction
There's no need for more protection
