Where do we go from here now that all other children are growin' upAnd how do we spend our lives if there's no one to lend us a hand
I don't wanna live here no more, I don't wanna stayAin't gonna spend the rest of my life, Quietly fading away
Games people play, You take it or you leave itThings that they say, Honor BriteIf I promise you the Moon and the Stars, Would you believe itGames people play in the middle of the night
Where do we go from here now that all of the children have grown upAnd how do we spend our time knowin' nobody gives us a damn
I don't wanna live here no more, I don't wanna stayAin't gonna spend the rest of my life, Quietly fading away
Games people play, You take it or you leave itThings that they say, Just don't make it rightIf I'm telling you the truth right now, do you believe itGames people play in the middle of the night
Games people play, You take it or you leave itThings that they say, Honor BriteIf I promise you the Moon and the Stars, Would you believe itGames people play in the middle of the night
Games people play, You take it or you leave itThings that they say, Just don't make it rightIf I'm tellin' you the truth right now, do you believe itGames people play in the middle of the night
