lyrics

PLAY YOUR OWN GAME - ©2017 Kevin Simnacher

Verse 1
Every day, every morning
turn off the snooze and turn on the news.
Wake up your head, drink some coffee
you look in the mirror (that’s what you do).
You’re getting older and time goes faster.
Take a deep breath and let go of the stress.
Remember a time when things worked better
back in the days when you were your best.

Chorus
So what’s the big hurry?
What you trying’ to prove?
There’s no need to worry.
You got nothin’ to lose.
You’ve got plenty of time
so don’t let ‘em push you.
There’s no need to hurry.
They’ll be gone when you’re through.

Verse 2
You play by their rules & they take all your money.
You paid up your dues & they give you the screws.
They’re making you pay for your own demise.
Follow your gut - don’t believe in their lies.
Watch what they do - it’s not what they’re saying’.
Search for the clues to keep from the blues.
Make it a choice to use your own brain.
Play your own game. Let you be you.

Chorus
So what’s the big hurry?
What you trying’ to prove?
There’s no need to worry.
You got nothin’ to lose.
You’ve got plenty of time
so don’t let ‘em push you.
There’s no need to hurry.
They’ll be gone when you’re through.

Bridge
It’s time to play your own game.
Not someone else’s.

Instrumental ending.
