"Pledge Pin" as written by Robert Plant and Robert Blunt....
Watch them go, 'cause one be one they rise to fall
Hearts in tow; it's just a game; she's only having fun
She laughs and turns away surprised; she mocks it all the same
Tonight's the loss; tomorrow's gain and in the end it's so

Stand in line, 'cause one by one they march in time
In the wings I stand and watch these foolish things go by
Just preparing for the play; aloof, she moves
The confidante, with practice steps
The memory dance she executes; her role, oh

As the cavalcade begins to thin, do you stop and look around?
Free to choose but not to win, you're just too late
Your show is at an end; now you're the victim of your game
Through your fingers watch them slip
Familiar rules just hit and miss for the one who never shows

    General CommentClearly the song is about some emotionally empty young woman who loves to receive attention from a large variety of men and enjoys toying with their affections.
    Since she's very attractive, there's always a steady stream of guys ready to compete for her ("Stand in line, 'cause one by one they march in time") and she always does her part to encourage them. (''She executes her role")

    As she gets older she desires a more stable lifestyle, but notices that the quality and number of sexual/romantic partners is not what it once was due to her reputation. ("As the cavalcade begins to thin, do you stop and look around?")
    While there's still a few guys she can take to bed, there aren't any to have a meaningful relationship with. ("Free to choose but not to win...")

    In the end she's sad and alone. ("...now you're the victim of your game. Through your fingers watch them slip...")

    THE END. :(
