Musicals – Chess - Nobody's Side lyrics

What's going on around me
Is barely making sense,
I need some explanations fast!

I see my present partner
In the imperfect tense,
And I don't see how we can last.

I feel I need a change of cast
Maybe I'm on nobody's side,
And when he gives me reasons
To justify each move,
They're getting harder to believe.

I know this can't continue,
I've still a lot to prove,
There must be more I could achieve.
But I don't have the nerve to leave!

Florence & Chorus:
Everybody's playing the game,
But nobody's rules are the same,
Nobody's on nobody's side.

Better learn to go it alone,
Recognize you're out on your own,
Nobody's on nobody's side.

The one I should not think of
Keeps rolling through my mind,
And I don't want to let that go!

No lover's ever faithful,
No contract truly signed,
There's nothing certain left to know.
And how the cracks begin to show!

Florence & Chorus:
Never make a promise or plan,
Take a little love where you can,
Nobody's on nobody's side.

Never stay too long in your bed,
Never lose your heart, use your head!
Nobody's on nobody's side.

Never take a stranger's advice,
Never let a friend fool you twice, Chorus:
Nobody's on nobody's side. Nobody's on nobody's side.

Florence & Chorus:
Never be the first to believe,
Never be the last to deceive,
Nobody's on nobody's side.

Florence: Chorus:
Never leave a moment too soon, Never leave a moment too soon,
Never waste a hot afternoon, Never waste a hot afternoon,
Nobody's on nobody's side,
Never stay too long! Never stay a minute too long.

Florence & Chorus:
Don't forget the best will go wrong,
Nobody's on nobody's side!
