SOLITAIRE

There was a man, a lonely man

Who lost his love with his indifference

A heart that cared

That went unshared until it died within his silence

And solitaire's the only game in town

And every road that takes him takes him down

And by himself it's easy to pretend he'll never love again

And keeping to himself he plays the game

Without her love it always ends the same

While life goes on around him everywhere

He's playing solitaire

A little hope goes up in smoke

Just how it goes, goes without saying

There was a man, a lonely man

Who would command the hand he's playing

And solitaire's the only game in town

And every road that takes him takes him down

And by himself it's easy to pretend he'll never love again

And keeping to himself he plays the game

Without her love it always ends the same

While life goes on around him everywhere

He's playing solitaire.
