You’ve always another trick

Hidden up your sleeve

Finding ways to break my faith

Just when I start to believe


I thought things were working out

And everything would be okay

But you were just playing a game

Dangling hope then taking it away


I’m tired of trying to second guess you

You always bluff one more time than I suspect

Double bluff, triple bluff, quadruple or more

But hey, what else should I expect?


So I give up trying to beat you

I know I’ll never take first place

This is your game, you make the rules

You’re the only winner in this race


I’d be a fool to keeping on fighting

To think there’s hope would be naïve

There’ll always be another trick

Hidden up one of Life’s many sleeves
