Alan Parsons Project – Games People Play lyrics

Where do we go from here now that all other children are growin' up
And how do we spend our lives if there's no-one to lend us a hand

I don't wanna live here no more, I don't wanna stay
Ain't gonna spend the rest of my life, Quietly fading away

Games people play, You take it or you leave it
Things that they say, Honor Brite
If I promise you the Moon and the Stars, Would you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Where do we go from here now that all of the children have grown up
And how do we spend our time knowin' nobody gives us a damn

I don't wanna live here no more, I don't wanna stay
Ain't gonna spend the rest of my life, Quietly fading away

Games people play, You take it or leave it
Things that they say, Just don't make it right
If I'm tellin' you the truth right now, do you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Games people play, You take it or you leave it
Things that they say, Honor Brite
If I promise you the Moon and the Stars, Would you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Games people play, You take it or leave it
Things that they say, Just don't make it right
If I'm tellin' you the truth right now, do you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

    Not quite. The album this song came from is themed around gambling - or a man gambling his life away - this song depicts the story of the life after the young man got caught up in the fantasy like world of gambling, where they all started out as children playing games but have since grown and gotten away from that life, but the man and his partner are still there, and now facing a bleak future , realizing they dont want to live there anymore and fade away with nothing, also understanding the games people played most of the adult life, telling lies and things that werent real or true and in the end the rest of their friends grew up and left and theres no one left to lend them a hand or care about them.

    The different phases that happen when you grow up and first you find that your friends go their own way, then after you've been with someone for 20 years and your life was centered around the children you raised together only to find that the person you've shared your bed with all those years suddenly has an identity crisis and tells you they are leaving. Games people play. What you choose to believe or not believe is all part of the game.
