Lyrics

We stare at each other ‘cross the board

Your move

Every time I think it’s your turn

You’ve left the room

What more can I do to make you play

The game

I’ve had my fill of solitaire

It’s not the same

 

I guess

That’s all

Alright

I give

 

I put my money down and drew

My hand

I waited to see if you would fold

Or stand

Somehow the hours seem to slip

Away

Why can’t you just put down your cards

And play

 

I guess

That’s all

Alright

I give

 

I give you love

When you’re alone

I give you strength

When you’re weary to the bone

I give you friendship

When the world has turned its back

I give and I give

But you’re never giving back

 

I guess

That’s all

Alright

I give
