Words of comfort and love
Spoken in design
Turn cruel unkind
You have your ready treasures or sin
And it all begins
With an innocent smile

Go on, make a play for her now
While I'm standing here
I bleed so slow
You may never know

Whisper she is safe
That you sympathize
When you know right now you'll be gone
At the kiss of dawn
The darkest lies
Your conscience runs clear

Go on, make a play for her now
While I'm standing here
I bleed so slow
You may never know

And I won't make a sound
Who am I to lay the blame
When it's all a game to you
You and I misfired
Left me cold and tired
Hey love it's alright

Go on, make a play for her now
While I'm standing here
I don't keep score
No not anymore
And I won't make a sound
Hey, who am I to lay the blame

When it's just a game
In the back of your mind
The pattern's starting to unwind
And you know you're alone
Oh, but you smile anyhow
When the moment allows
Make a play for her now
