ACCEPT lyrics - The Curse

ACCEPT
"The Curse"

Why are the world's biggest sinners
Always saints when they're gone?
It's all about losers and winners
Not about who's right and who is wrong

Who's the thief, who's the traitor?
Who's the one to save the day?
And who will be in the spotlight
While the good ones fade away

Yes I realize it's just a fact of life
Nothing's ever really free
And if I have to I will gladly pay the price
We can't escape our destiny

[Chorus:]
It's the curse of being good
The curse of doing right
It's the curse of being good
The curse of doing right
The price we pay for our honour

No more Mr. Nice Guy
No more Mr. Right
Should I be like all the others?
Should I give up the good fight?

This never-ending struggle
Has been part of me so long
Is it a curse is it a blessing?
We know who's right, who is wrong

I'm not complaining this is how I lived my life
I'll keep my pride my dignity
And if I have to I will gladly pay the price
You can't cheat your destiny

[Chorus:]
It's the curse of being good
The curse of doing right
It's the curse of being good
The curse of doing right
The price we pay for our honour

[Solo]

Yes I realize it's just a fact of life
Nothing's ever really free
And if I have to I will gladly pay the price
You can't cheat your destiny

[Chorus:]
It's the curse of being good
The curse of doing right
It's the curse of being good
The curse of doing right
The price we pay for our honour

It's the curse of being good
The curse of doing right
