Can't Win This Game


Where went my energy, where went my love?
Who solved the mystery of what lies above?
Where went that little girl?
You know the one
Why do we even play this game when it's said and done

Where went my innocence, where went my looks?
Who's got my model kits and my comic books?
Where went my animals, Where went my folks?
Where went my shiny Schwinn with cards in the spokes?

We can try but we can't win this game we're playing friend
We can't win but we can try
We may live, but we're bound to die

Where went my birthday wishes, where went my youth ?
Who stole my father's car and drove off with the truth ?
Where went my government, Where went my God ?
Where did all my heroes go, Who blew my wad ?

We can try but we can't win this game we play my friend
We can't win but we can try
We may live but we're bound to die

I can't escape the memory of what I know I'm missing
Somewhere there's a world where you and I are kissing
I look in the mirror and what do I see
A stranger's cold eyes staring at me

Where went those all night kisses?
Where went my friends ?
Why do I spend so much time now worrying how it ends?
Will I go home to Heaven, Will my soul return?
Or will I find myself in Hell eternally to burn?

We can try but we can't win this game we play my friend
We can't win but we can try
We may live but we're bound to die
We can try but we can't win this game we play my friend
We can't win but we can try
Come on and live, we're bound to die
Live with me
Come on and live with me
