Jamie Walters – I Know The Game lyrics

Time to pay the rent baby, gotta try and work harder.

Really goin' nowhere fast, you're not goin' much farther.

Gotta take a break baby, try and make my load lighter.

I'm missin' somethin' that I need, never been much of a fighter.

Well maybe I made, a few mistakes.

But baby you know, they were mine to make.


I know the game, but I don't want to play it.

I know the word, but I don't want to say it.

I've got the bill, but I don't want to pay it.

I know the game, but I ain't gonna play it this time.

You watch me like a hawk, baby, I know somethin's gotta give.

Listen to the way you talk, baby, this ain't no way to live.

Everything I don't have, well it all belongs to you.

I'm doin the best that I can, baby what you want me to do.



The old ways are dead & gone,

And the door is open wide.

Anything can happen now. You can see me,

Standin' on a thin line.
