Hard Game of Love

In the hard game of love I’m the last one to fall
But I gave it my heart and I gave it my all
I didn’t know that she played a game with no rules
So I climbed aboard the old ship of fools

And it’s a lonesome old world, my sweetheart is gone
I can’t sleep at all. And I pray for the dawn
It’s the last time I’ll hurt, it’s the last time I’ll cry
When I lay down tonight, gonna lay down and die

In the still of the night as the lonesome wind blows
My sanity wanes; it comes and it goes
I feel like a child in a house all alone
Whose mother and dad will never come home
