Games People Play


Verse 1:

        Can't get no rest
        Don't know how I work all day
        When will I learn?
        Memories get in the way
          I walk around
        I can't hear a sound, folks talkin' loud, but I
        Don't see at all
        I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't
        Know where to go
        It's hopeless so
        I guess I'll leave it alone       well I

Verse 2:

Spent all my day
Fixin' up to go somewhere
Thought I was late
And I found she wasn't there
I guess I'll find
The love, peace of mind, some other time, but I
Still have today
I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't
Know where to go
It's hopeless so
        I guess I'll leave it alone


        Games people play
        Night or day they're just not matchin'
        What they should do
        Keeps me feelin' blue
        Been down too long
        Right, wrong, they just can't stop it
        Spendin' all day
(1: Bm7/E E7 Bm7/E E7)
(2: Am7/D)
Thinking just of you

Verse 3:

Twelve forty-five
Headed for the subway home
I took my time
'Cause I felt so all alone
Not far away
I heard a funny sound, took a look around, and I
Could see her face
Smile as she came, callin' out my name, so I
Know where to go
We'll take it slow
        Guess I'll call it a day

(repeat chorus; fade 2nd time)
