​Law of Life

This song is by John Norum and appears on the album Total Control (1987).

When the tears are enough
And so I have been away
What is left to come back to
Makes it worse to stay

Hiding things from the corners
Of the things from the past
But the paintings remind me
That we were two of a cast

Never count on a tiger
Never play with the fire
Don't remind me of home
'Cause I've been out in the west
Writing letters of love
That's the law of life

I've been filled up with hunger
For a mail to be mine
I've been building a house too
Like I've been building desire

Sometimes words are despiteful
And sometimes they are blind
But my longing is frightful
I'm screaming time after time

Never count on a tiger
Never play with the fire
Don't remind me of home
'Cause I've been out in the west
Writing letters of love
That's the law of life
Oh, yeah
Never count on a tiger
Never play with the fire
Don't remind me of home
'Cause I've been out in the west
Writing letters of love
Oh, hat's the law of life
That's the law of life
The law of life
That's the law of life
