Fell In Love With the Game

Album: The Great Depression (2005)
  • Put the knife in the table
    Deck of cards fly across the room
    This game has ended
    Someone needs to die
    'Cause I put my life on the table
    But forgot the risk I assume
    Now it's going down

    Fell in love with the game
    But I forgot your name
    Go ahead, please fight me
    'Cause I'm not scared
    Though you stayed the same
    I forgot from where I came

    I put my life on this table
    This is me and I'm lost for words
    Now is it me who needs to die?
    Say something then
    'Cause I'll be dead before dawn
    If your voice comes unheard
    Now I can't find ground

    Fell in love with the game
    But I forgot your name
    Go ahead, please fight me
    'Cause I'm not scared
    Though you stayed the same
    I forgot from where I came

    And we both stand tall on the table
    You take me by the hand
    And I grab you by the throat
    And we come crashing down through the window
    On the dirt ground below
    And we wrestle in the mud
    And the blood and the beer
    Break my jaw
    I don't care
    Just stay with me, stay

    Lock my arms
    I don't want to move
    Hold me still
    Teach me how to weep
    If it's okay with you I think I'll stay here
    For a little while

    Fell in love with the game
    But I forgot your name
    Go ahead, please find me
    'Cause I'm not scared
    Though you stayed the same
    I forgot from where I came Writer/s: CHRISTIAN THELL LINDSKOG, MARCUS TOBIAS DAHLSTROEM, SIMON FRANK GRENEHED, TOMAS NILS NAESLUND
