Victim of the Game

Garth Brooks

Well it took a little time
But I guess you finally learned,
That promises get broken
And bridges do get burned.

You've been sifting through the ashes
Just trying to find a flame,
Holding on to nothing...
You're a victim of the game.

You were standing way too close
To see it all fall apart,
And there were things you couldn't hear
'Cause you were listening with your heart.

But 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 getting to you
When you take to telling lies,
And you can try to fool your friends
But you can't look 'em in the eyes.

There ain't no standing 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.

Oh you know when I look into your eyes
I can really feel the pain,
Staring in the mirror
At a victim of the game.
