(Yeah......)

Do me a favor
Would you sing this to me slow?
'Cause I'm thinking its my song

Do me a favor
Would you tell me when to let go?
'Cause I think I'm holding on

Would you do it for me?
Would you do it for me?
'Cause I'm playing for keeps

Tell me tommorow has come
With open arms
Open arms
Open arms
If you say it's time to move on
Then I'll stop holding on
Holding on
If you say that it's time for moving on

(Yeah, time for moving on, yeah)

Do me a favor
Would you tell me which way's up?
'Cause I dont know where I fit

Do me a favor
Would you tell me when to stop?
'Cause I dont know how to quit

Would you do it for me?
Would you do it for me?
'Cause I'm playing for keeps

Tell me tommorow has come
With open arms
Open arms
Open arms
If you say it's time to move on
I'll stop holding on
Holdin' on
If you say that its time for moving on
Yeah, time for moving on

Do me a favor
Do me a favor
'Cause I'm playing for keeps

Tell me tommorow has come
With open arms
Open arms
Open arms
If you say it's time to move on
Then I'll stop holding on
Holding on
If you say that its time for moving on (If you say)
Yeah, time for moving on (If you say)
Yeah, time for moving on

    General Comment"Our first album (Legend Of Chin) had quite a few songs about girls and relationships. Our second album (New Way To Be Human) didn't really have any songs that fit that description, but we still felt that song about love and the struggles there-in were important for us to write about. This is the one song on this album that deals with the often-used-but-never-exhausted topic of heart-ache."-Tim Foreman

    "Eventually I think everyone experiences a time when he meets someone very special or just grows tired of the dating game, and he doesn't want anything to do with someone that he's attracted to unless that someone is reasonably serious about creating a lasting relationship. He would rather have that person tell him "it's time to move on" then to be strung along only to have his heart broken. This is what it's like to be ‘playing for keeps': to be looking beyond the present to and meaningful and lasting friendship."-Tim Foreman
