Play the Game

I play a game I cannot put away
And I hate to play it day by day
But if it keeps those memories at bay
Then I’ll stay
And I’ll play

They taught me when I was only three
When I couldn’t close my eyes and look away
I’d still hear them leaning over and they’d say
“Come on son, stay
Come stay and play”

And they told me growin’ in to my teens
“You gotta go and take one for the team”
And I couldn’t bear the losin’ or the blame
So I stayed
I stayed and played

I don’t want to sound like I’ve been played
I can take it for the choices I have made
But if all I need to do to win is pray
Then I’ll pray
I’ll pray to play

I play a game I cannot put away
And I hate to play it every day
But if there’s time for just one more game
Hey play with me
“Come stay and play”
