PLAY IT AS IT LAYS
Lyrics
PLAY IT AS IT LAYS

I don't reach for you, not like I used to
In the morning, early on
I'd wake up from some crazy dream
I'd turn to try and tell how real it seemed
But you were long gone
I'm not dreaming much in the morning these days
I always seem to sleep right through
There comes a time you have to

Play it as it lays
And I no longer reach for you, you have to
Play it as it lays
And I no longer reach for you, anymore

I don't look for you, not like I used to
In the afternoons, all alone
I'd pass the places where we'd been
I'd scan the faces, but would not go in
Cause, you were long gone
I'm not walking much afternoons these days
Just have other things to do
There comes a time you have to

Play it as it lays
And I no longer look for you, you have to
Play it as it lays
And I no longer look for you, anymore

You are the only one, whoever
Made me believe in what they call, forever
And now I'm amazed how soon always can fade
Turning into almost never (lock the door)
I said never (hide the key), I said never...

I don't long for you, not like I used to
No nostalgia, after dark
In real life love never stays
Toss the dice and

Play it as it lays
And I no longer long for you, you have to
Play it as it lays
And I no longer long for you, anymore
