The game of love I played With arrogance and pride And every flame I lit Too quickly, quickly died The friends I made all seemed Somehow to drift away And only I am left On stage to end the play There are so many songs in me That won't be sung I feel the bitter taste Of tears upon my tongue The time has come for me To pay for yesterday When I was young
