Genesis – Many Too Many lyrics

You said good-bye on a corner
That I thought led to the straight. You set me on a firmly laid and simple course
Then removed the road. The part was fun but now its over,
Why can’t I just leave the stage? Oh pretty mama,
Please wont you let me go free. Oh no… I thought I was lucky
Oh I thought that Id got it made. How could I be so blind? Many too many have stood where I stand
Many more will stand here too,
I think what I find strange is the way you built me up
Then knocked me down again. How could I be so blind? Oh mama,
Please would you find the key. Oh pretty mama,
Please lead me through the next day. Oh mama,
Please help me find my way. I thought I was lucky
I thought that Id got it made. Maybe that’s because you securely locked me up
Then threw away the key.
