You’re Never Too Old to Play Games

you were someone I touched
but couldn’t move
i wanted just to love you
but it was like you had something to prove
as we broke from the gate, we thought we were being straight
in that way we’re the same
but you’re never too old to play games
you’re never too old to play games
the rules of the heart say you lose from the start
but you’re never too old to play games

i showed you my hand
you weren’t keeping score
you put away the pieces
and so i folded up the board
two lonely souls, with two hearts all full of holes
one was warm and one in flame
you’re never too old to play games
you’re never too old to play games
the rules of the heart say you lose from the start
but you’re never too old to play games

if there’s nothing to talk about
why did you call?
if you’re playing the I ain’t playing games game, baby
you’re playing the worst game of all
from the cradle to the grave
we are each of us a slave
to the one life we all try to claim
you’re never too old to play games
you’re never too old to play games
the rules of the heart say you lose from the start
but you’re never too old to play games
