  • You know I lose, you know I win
    You know I call for the shape I'm in
    It's just a game you see me play
    Only real in the way
    That I feel from day to day

    Although the answer is not unknown
    I'm searchin', searchin', and how I've grown
    It's not all right to say goodbye
    And the world on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing

    No, the world on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing
    (It's only real) in the way
    That I feel from day to day
    (No, the world) on a string
    Doesn't mean a thing
    (It's only real)
