"Solitaire" as written by and Sammy Cahn Jule Styne....
There was a man, a lonely man
Who lost his love through his indifference
A heart that cared, that went unchecked
Until it died in 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

Another day, a lonely day
So much to say that goes unspoken
And through the night, his sleepless nights
His eyes are closed, his heart is broken

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
She's coming back 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
Solitaire
And by himself it's easy to pretend
He'll never love again
Ohhh

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
Solitaire, solitaire

    General CommentWhy are you so sad? If it wasn't your lyrics, I wouldn't even know half of the words. Even if they were wrong.

    General Commentthanks, but the majority of the song i really bombed on. Same with my "This Is A Rebel Song". You did the corrections, and its a hell of a better job then mine originally was, therefore, you deserve this credit. My other ones from HRB should be ok though, even though i think some of "Angela" is off.
