Playing for Keeps
Matchbook Romance Lyrics


It's so simple
And complicated.
The way you can crush me.
No matter how much this hurts,
This is through.
I get as far as your door
Before i get caught.
I make up excuses
Just to touch you and I can't stop
I can't stop.

So are we playing for keeps?
The days begin and they don't end for weeks.
Leave me left out
Of anything to do with you.
Excuse me while I fall apart.
Don't flatter yourself sweetheart.
Let me take the wheel
And I'll crash this car.
Do you have to make this so hard?

You're so good at pretending everything is alright.
You're as welcome as cancer
But my door is always unlocked.

So are we playing for keeps?
The days begin and they don't end for weeks.
Leave me left out
Of anything to do with you.
Excuse me while I fall apart.
Don't flatter yourself sweetheart.
Let me take the wheel
And I'll crash this car.
Do you have to make this so hard?

mathew richwalski

the times the album title becomes clear as means to mask for either strike or fire because existing can be so difficult and ever is one not also the other - favourite line, "you're as welcome as cancer"
