you don't want me anymore
so I'll just walk right out the door
played a game right from the start
I trust you, you used me
and now my heart's all torn apart

Chorus:
so I'm sailin', well I'm sailin' on
well I'm movin', hey I'm movin' on
sail on, sail on

try to see if I'll give up
but there wasn't any luck
it's a fact, fact of life
that's the games, games of strife
everything is all in stride

Chorus

there's too many years, with too many tears
and too many days with nothing to say
and how will we know
when there's nowhere to grow
and what's the facts for life to show.
