  • Watch them go, 'cause one be one they rise to fall
    Hearts in tow; it's just a game; she's only having fun
    She laughs and turns away surprised; she mocks it all the same
    Tonight's the loss; tomorrow's gain and in the end it's so

    Stand in line, 'cause one by one they march in time
    In the wings I stand and watch these foolish things go by
    Just preparing for the play; aloof, she moves
    The confidante, with practice steps
    The memory dance she executes; her role, oh

    As the cavalcade begins to thin, do you stop and look around?
    Free to choose but not to win, you're just too late
    Your show is at an end; now you're the victim of your game
    Through your fingers watch them slip
    Familiar rules just hit and miss for the one who never shows Writer/s: ROBERT BLUNT, ROBERT PLANT
