lyrics

I tell you this in confidence for every word is true,
I've been behind the curtain and I've learned a trick or two.
I've seen the most successful men throw everything away,
And the truth be told it owns my soul, and I know it's the only way.

I've been tricked by knocked down and kicked by, I've been tricked by love
I've played the fool, broke all the rules, for I've been tricked by love.
Well I've lost my way and cursed the day, well I've paid and paid and paid.
I've turned on friends and bitter ends, and I'd do it all again.

It's been around much longer than him and her and you,
You can fight it till the day you die, there's nothing you can do.
A gamble, a hustle, a con, a bluff, it always ends the same.
Hearts are won and hearts are lost, its how you play the game
How you play the game.

I've been tricked by knocked down and kicked by, I've been tricked by love
I've played the fool, broke all the rules, for I've been tricked by love.
Well I've lost my way and cursed the day, well I've paid and paid and paid.
I've turned on friends and bitter ends, and I'd do it all again.

I tell you this in confidence for every word is true,
I've been behind the curtain and I've learned a trick or two.
Learned a trick or two.

I've been tricked by knocked down and kicked by, I've been tricked by love
I've played the fool, broke all the rules, for I've been tricked by love.
Well I've lost my way and cursed the day, well I've paid and paid and paid.
I've turned on friends and bitter ends, and I'd do it all again.

I've been tricked by knocked down and kicked by, I've been tricked by love
I've played the fool, broke all the rules, for I've been tricked by love.
Well I've lost my way and cursed the day, well I've paid and paid and paid.
I've turned on friends and bitter ends, and I'd do it all again.

If I had to tell the story of a thousand rainy days since we first met,
It's a big enough umbrella, but it's always me that ends up getting wet.

I've been tricked by knocked down and kicked by love,
I've been tricked by knocked down and kicked by love,
I've been tricked by knocked down and kicked by love,
And I'd do it all again.
