Track Name: I can't win
I’ve only got myself to blame
I knew you wanted it all
You always play as though it’s a game
It drives me up the wall

Cards held so close to your chest
You wanna be the best
Your story is bathed in sorrow
But you’re going down a path I can’t follow

Take it on the chin
Bear it with a grin
It’s a game I can never win
I should have locked the door
So long ago before
I didn’t know that you wanted more
Such an awesome sight
Bark then a bite
I should have known that I’m never right
Take it on the chin
Bear it with a grin
It’s a game I can never win

I can’t win
I can’t win
I can’t win
I can’t win

Sometimes I lie awake at night
Waiting for you to call
It’s not your strategy to win this fight
That drives me up the wall
Track Name: Closure (LorD and Master guide vocal)
It’s been so long since I’ve seen you
It’s breaking up my heart again
Every bone, every sinew
Tells me I’m not the strongest of men

I remember the days
When we had it all
Those weren’t just happy times
If you recall

Oh,
We need closure
Under the lights, so bright
There’s too much exposure
I don’t want to beg
Or lose my composure
But tell me, one of these days
that we can have closure
We can have closure

I curse the time when I found you
But I can see it clear as day
Every word that I held true
Was bypassed or brushed away

Simultaneously a hit
and a miss
It’s true to say that
Ignorance is bliss
Track Name: I can't win (LorD and Master extended mix)
I’ve only got myself to blame
I knew you wanted it all
You always play as though it’s a game
It drives me up the wall

Cards held so close to your chest
You wanna be the best
Your story is bathed in sorrow
But you’re going down a path I can’t follow

Take it on the chin
Bear it with a grin
It’s a game I can never win
I should have locked the door
So long ago before
I didn’t know that you wanted more
Such an awesome sight
Bark then a bite
I should have known that I’m never right
Take it on the chin
Bear it with a grin
It’s a game I can never win

I can’t win
I can’t win
I can’t win
I can’t win

Sometimes I lie awake at night
Waiting for you to call
It’s not your strategy to win this fight
That drives me up the wall
Track Name: I can't win (GX remix)
I’ve only got myself to blame
I knew you wanted it all
You always play as though it’s a game
It drives me up the wall

Cards held so close to your chest
You wanna be the best
Your story is bathed in sorrow
But you’re going down a path I can’t follow

Take it on the chin
Bear it with a grin
It’s a game I can never win
I should have locked the door
So long ago before
I didn’t know that you wanted more
Such an awesome sight
Bark then a bite
I should have known that I’m never right
Take it on the chin
Bear it with a grin
It’s a game I can never win

I can’t win
I can’t win
I can’t win
I can’t win

Sometimes I lie awake at night
Waiting for you to call
It’s not your strategy to win this fight
That drives me up the wall
