Lyrics
At this stage of the game
t's too late too raise, too soon to fold
At this stage of the game
Your run of luck is running cold
All your bridges burned
Means you can't return
Back the way you came
At this stage of the game

At this stage of the game
A hard act is following you
At this stage of the game
Keep trying to tell you something new
Sure you missed your shot
But you always thought
You'd still be in the frame
At this stage of the game

Cos Everybody has their time to shine
And you've had yours and someone's shouting,
"Hey, where's mine?"
One day, you will outstay your welcome
It's hard to see that it might be just maybe
At this stage of the game

(instrumental)

At this stage of the game
You look back but all you see
At this stage of the game
The melting tracks of your history
And that once distant dread
Is now just up ahead
Where silence comes to claim
At this stage of the game
Back to Top
Back to Top
