The Game

  • Everywhere I go
    When everyone who knows me
    Knows that I would stand alone
    It's all part of the game
    The game, the game, the game

    When you said I could move on and go
    You said I'm weak and it shows
    I couldn't go on without you
    Now you're sitting in your house alone
    Wondering why I left home
    And I'm hoping that you know

    Had to fake it till I made it
    And you try to break it
    Now you try to take it back
    But you know that
    I've been doing my thing
    I've been running my game
    And you know I won't look back

    Everywhere I go
    When everyone who knows me
    Knows that I would stand alone
    It's all part of the game
    The game, the game, the game

    I'm standing on my toes
    To the sky I go
    And you know you're the one to think
    It's all part of the game
    The game, the game, the game
    We all play it the same

    As you looked, you saw me walking out
    You tried to knock me down
    I would go on without you
    Now you're sitting in the mess you made
    Now you're feeling my pain
    And I'm hoping that you know that

    I'm stronger cause you made me
    You will never faze me
    You can never take me down
    'Cause you know that
    I've been doing my thing
    I've been running my game
    And you know I won't look back
    You know that

    Everywhere I go
    When everyone who knows me
    Knows that I would stand alone
    It's all part of the game
    The game, the game, the game

    I'm standing on my toes
    To the sky I go
    And you know you're the one to think
    It's all part of the game
    The game, the game, the game
    We all play it the same

    Everywhere I go
    When everyone who knows me
    Knows that I would stand alone
    It's all part of the game
    The game, the game, the game

    I'm standing on my toes
    To the sky I go
    And you know you're the one to think
    It's all part of the game
    The game, the game, the game
    We all play it the same Writer/s: ISAAC HAYES, DAVID PORTER, MARVIN FOWLER, DANTE LAMAR GIVENS, COURTENAY D. HENDERSON, SHAWNIE MACK, LUCAS CHRISTIAN MACFADDEN, MARK ALI POTSIC, CHARLES L. STEWART, MARC F. STUART
