GAMES WE PLAY

 

We watched the clouds dance above us

But in my heart you felt so out of reach

The weight that I've carried, words that you buried

So close and so very deep

 

This time you're burning right through me

Another hole in the soles of our feet

Love's not a race and I can't keep chasing

Someone who wants it to be

 

Oh the games we play, my darling

You let me believe it was all guaranteed

But nothing's for certain, don't draw the curtains

One day it might be too late

For the games we play my darling

 

Now an old, broken chair sits beside me

Weathered and worn by the rain

It's just me and the clouds and your words in the ground

Neither of us are to blame

 

For the games we play, my darling

You let me believe it was all guaranteed

But nothing's for certain, don't draw the curtains

One day it might be too late

For the games we play my darling

 

I only want things I could live without

I would give you a thousand roses

Just to watch you throw them away

You'd throw them away

 

Oh the games we play, my darling

You let me believe it was all guaranteed

But nothing's for certain, don't draw the curtains

One day it might be too late

For the games we play

The games we play

It's hardly too late, my darling

My darling
