Losing the Game

from by Lyle King



I wonder what you'd say
If you saw me today
Saw the way I hurt
Or if you'd look away

Since things have turned around
It feels like I've been losing ground
You pulled the earth right out
From underneath my feet

And you seem so sure of where you're going
And I don't know which way I'm facing
You're so sure you're making the right decision
So why'd you hold out on me for so long
If you knew this all along?

It's the simple things each day
That we never seemed to say
In any apparent way
That I'm missing more than sleep

You took everything I knew
And made it untrue
Now nothing's as it seems
And no one's hearing me

I don't know when you slipped away from me
All I know is I can't face this alone
All my old friends are all that's supporting me
And I'm still falling down on my faith
And there's nothing they can say

The sound of your voice
The volume of your choice
Was more than I could take
I had to go away

I've been thinking what to think
And the days go by like weeks
And I wonder how you are
And if you still remember me

And I know now just what you meant to me
But you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
And I know you're not coming back to me
I don't know how I'll make it on my own
I forgot how to be alone

There's nothing left to say
That can make things okay
Even more with every day
I'm losing the game
