“Just a Game” Lyrics

There’s a way
There’s a way for you and I if you’ll just stay
If you’ll just stay to keep me hidden from the day
And all its light
That’s covered up by night
When you’re away

When you’re away, the image of your face is clear
It is clear across the room, and I am here
Against the wall
Afraid that it is all
Just a game

Just a game that’s played in fun but not too real
Not too real to take a chance on finding out
You’ve really lost
I can’t see you clearly
While I’m here

While I’m here, and you are in my state of mind
My state of mind is changing places all the time
And I am lost
Trying to get across
Another time

When you’re away, the image of your face is clear
It is clear across the room when I am here
Against the wall
Afraid that it is all
Just a game
Just a game
Just a game
Just a game
Just a game
Just a game
Just a game
Just a game
