Obstacles they come and go
That's the name of this game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold
Just play your cards then fold

Take two steps forward, one step back
Every time I get on track the light fades to black
As the curtain drops back, I still step to my destiny
I see it right in front of me, it's in your eyes (I see)
Dancin' to the beat and these sweat melodies
Ridin' on a breeze, the trees part for me
But these sharks still circle through the park

I look to you, it's in my nature since a youth
When I ran after you and lights went blue
Me and you, you and me
I share my heart with ya, you're my family now

Obstacles they come and go
That's the name of this game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold
Just play your cards then fold
Can't give back the time you stole
The path unravels, the day unfolds
This life can't be bought nor sold
So play your cards then...

Once upon a time I ran to you,
Banned myself to find your wealth
Return to the land of truth
Found myself all alone as the stars they kissed
Still runnin' after you through this wilderness
At dawn I tracked snow through back yards and front lawns
I'm up late wide awake I'm reborn as day breaks and gets on

To you, it's in my nature since a youth
When I ran after you and lights went blue
Me and you, you and me
I share my heart with ya, you're my family now

Obstacles they come and go
That's the name of this game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold
Just play your cards then fold
Can't give back the time you stole
The path unravels, the day unfolds
This life can't be bought nor sold
Just play your cards...

Siftin' through the sand
A man is just a man
No matter how you fan the flame
It all comes out the same
In the end you are my friend

Siftin' through the sand
A man is just a man
No matter how you fan the flame
It all comes out the same
In the end you are my friend

Obstacles they come and go
That's the name of this game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold
Just play your cards then fold
Can't give back the time you stole
The path unravels, the day unfolds
This life can't be bought nor sold
Just play your cards then

Obstacles they come and go
That's the name of this game you know
This life can't be bought nor sold
Just play your cards then fold
Can't give back the time you stole
The path unravels, the day unfolds
This life can't be bought nor sold
Just play your cards then
