There was a man

A lonely man

Who lost his love

Through his indifference



A heart that cared

That went unshared

Until it died

Within his silence



(*) And solitaire's the only game in town

And every road that takes him

Takes him down

And by himself it's easy to pretend

He'll never love again



(**) And keeping to himself

He plays the game

Without her love

It always ends the same

While life goes on around him everywhere

He's playing solitaire



A little hope

Goes up in smoke

Just how it kills

Goes without saying



There was a man

A lonely man

Who would command

The hand he's playing



Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)

Repeat (*)
