Clint Black - Buying Time Lyrics

I've played the games, the masquerades
By the time the eleventh hour fades
You're bound to know that what I say is true

And I'm the one you're looking for
Every time you find that cheatin' door
I'll just keep pretending I never knew

But what are we in this for
When our hearts are on the line?
And if a heart could brake
You're surely breaking mine

And if we fall to ruin
It wasn't my design
But if I can have my way
There's no price I won't pay
To just keep buying time

I'll have to say, I have my doubts
But I'll give all till I give out
And I'll do anything to make you stay

But this could be part of the plan
Maybe we were dealt a losing hand
But I'll have to let the cards fall where they may

But what are we in this for
When our hearts are on the line?
And if a heart could brake
You're surely breaking mine

And if we fall to ruin
It wasn't my design
But if I can have my way
There's no price I won't pay
To just keep buying time
