Victim of the Game
(Garth Brooks/Mark D. Sanders) It took a little time But I guess you finally learned That promises get broken And bridges do get burned You've been sittin' through the ashes Just tryin' to find a flame Holdin' on to nothin' You're a victim of the game You were standin' way too close To see it fall apart There were things you couldn't hear 'Cause you were listenin' with your heart You can't say I didn't warn you Now there's no one else to blame There's no one quite as blind As a victim of the game And it don't matter who you are It treats everyone the same All you need's a heart To be a victim of the game You know it's really gettin' to you When you take to tellin' lies You can try to fool your friends But you can't look 'em in the eye There ain't no standin' tall In the shadow of the shame When everybody knows That you're a victim of the game And it don't matter who you are It treats everyone the same All you need's a heart To be a victim of the game When I look into your eyes I can really feel the pain Starin' in the mirror At a victim of the game
