Watch them go, 'cuz one by one they rise to fall
Hearts in tow
It's just a game she's only having fun
She laughs and turns away
Surprised, she mocks 'It's all the same,
tonight's the loss, tomorrows' gain'
and in the end it's so.
Stand in line, 'cuz one by one they march in time
in the wings, we stand and watch these foolish things go by
just preparing for the play
aloof she moves, the confidante with practiced step
memory dance, she executes her role, role.
And as the cavalcade begins to thin do you stop and look around
free to choose but not to win
you're just too late, your show is at an end
now you're the victim of your game
through your fingers, watch them slip
familiar moves just hit and miss
the one who never slows
