Love's A Hard Game To Play

Album: TimeSpace: The Best of Stevie Nicks (1991)
  • Wake up my sweet child
    There's something I've got to say to you tonight
    It's time you took a look at me
    Cause there's so much more to me
    Than meets the eye

    Well, there's more to love than makin' time
    The harder you look the more you'll find
    It's never easy no matter what they say

    Love's a hard game to play
    The heart's the price you pay
    Love's a hard game to play
    No matter what they say
    Win or lose, no matter what they say
    Love's a hard game to play

    The problem here is not my fear
    The trouble is you can't convince yourself
    For tonight, let's lose the past
    Make love last
    Put our worries up on the shelf

    We've been through thick and thin, and back again
    And we can endure love's sweet pain
    Remember, starting the fire is easy
    The hardest part is learning how to keep the flame

    Love's like walking a real fine line
    You get too close and you'll go blind
    Let go too long and it will all drift away

    Just when I feel like I'm losin' you
    I hear them voices call
    They say it's better to have lost at love
    Than never to have loved at all
    Lose or win, stand or fall

    Well, there's more to love than makin' time
    The harder you look, the more you'll find
    It's never easy, no matter what they say Writer/s: BRET MICHAELS, PAT SCHUNK
