Solitaire Lyrics

There was a man, a lonely man
Who lost his love
Through his indifference
A heart that cared
That went unshared
Until it died
Within his silence

And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
And by himself it’s easy to pretend
He’ll never love again
And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love
It always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He’s playing solitaire

A little hope goes up in smoke
Just how it goes, goes without saying
There was a man, a lonely man
Who would command the hand he’s playing

And solitaire’s the only game in town
(The only game)
And every road that takes him, takes him down
(Always takes him down)
And by himself it’s easy to pretend
He’ll never love again
And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love
It always ends the same
(Always ends the same)
While life goes on around him everywhere
He’s playing solitaire

And solitaire’s the only game in town
(It’s the only game in town)
And every road that takes him, takes him down
(Down, down, down)
And by himself it’s easy to pretend
He’ll never love again
(Love again)
And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love
It always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He’s playing solitaire

There was a man…
