solitaire, such a fateful game
she turns her cards and writes her name on the napkin
mow she turns another card
she dreams about the house and romance
he promised but won't deliver

she waits alone
with dried out hopes
and dormant phone
she waits for years
and fantasies melt
new ones appear
but they won't help

and again she catches him
eye pulls away with light too dim
she calls his name and runs around
but he was faster
all alone in a bad part of town

she waits again
with dried out hopes
and things made for him
a little ride, a little fun was all
he held her tight, got tired and then let go

the strain on her heart
she believed a lying blackheart
painted with promises
then he left her on the floor
with only the mirror to curse
"should've known better"
but how she cried...

    General CommentIt;s abour a relationship gome bad. He;s never there for her, nibidy is. She;s very lonely. Cinstanly hoping things will get better "some day" bvut they never do. She just keeps waiting for something to happen but he doesnt even act like he cares about her. And she seems to blame herself.

    General CommentI love Toad as a band, and I need to hear more of their songs. However, I'm not understanding this motif of violent anti-male subject matter in a number of their songs. It almost seems as if they hold the stereotypical societal belief that a majority of men are trash and have no social redeeming value; and that women are Christocentric, omniscient, perfect souls who are simply at the mercy of men, and are held back in every way because of it.
