Love is just a game that everybody plays
And when the game is over not everybody pays
Some play the game to lose, some play the game to win
The winners walk out laughing, the losers cry, deal again

Lately you and I have played the game
Now there's no feeling left except for the pain
Finally comes the time to fall apart
And I fine that I am in way over my heart

Oh you've been holding on to holding on
But we can't leave not well enough alone any longer
We're not making love, we're keeping score
It's a simple matter, it don't matter anymore

'Cause love is just a game that everybody plays
And when the game is over not everybody pays
Some play the game to lose some play the game to win
The winners walk out laughing, the losers cry, deal again

Deal again
Deal again
Deal again
Deal again

    Some play the game and lose not to lose. Also some play the game and win. It's Lady you and have played the game and also not 'finally' nightly comes the time to fall apart. Obviously this relationship has dissolved into game playing and score keeping, and hurt feelings, that he wonders why they can't seem to get past, while at the same time he knows it's time to move on.
