Lyrics

The Same Game by Robin Inwald

As the rain falls in the city,
Starin? through your windowpane,
Beggin? for a drink to buy
Before a sad day starts again.
He won?t tell you all the reasons
Why this is all he can do,
But, you know, from loving parents,
He was born, just like you.

You think you?re not my brother.
You think we?re not the same.
Ears closed, fightin? each other,
Still playin? in the same game,
All playin? in the same game.

See her sittin? by the bus stop.
Gettin? high is what she knows,
Tryin? to forget her father?s
Lyin?, screamin?, slaps and blows.
Hear her voice so softly singing.
Are those words Amazing Grace?
With her song, a girl?s lost purpose
Finds some meaning in this place.

You think you?re not my sister.
You think we?re not the same.
Ears closed, fightin? each other,
Still playin? in the same game,
All playin? in the same game.

Fightin? for power, tryin? to get ahead.
Not knowin? love inside
Can get us there instead.

See them playin? near the corner,
Wonderin? how to pass the day.
Should it seem so ordinary,
Unblessed hearts of runaways?
Politicians with their reasons,
Think they?re someone else?s sons.
Will we ever hear the message?
It?s our family come undone.

You think we?re not together.
You think we?re not the same.
Ears closed, fightin? each other,
Still playin? in the same game,
All playin? in the same game,
Still playin? in the same game.
