100 Nights (1998 Digital Remaster)

Marillion

A hundred nights of fun and games
A thousand empty glasses
I feel it change
And stay the same
As each day passes

They invite me to their gatherings
In the finer parts of town
They seem attracted to my indifference
The irony just knocks me out

And I love them as if I love them
And they reciprocate with "help"
But I look up at these mirrors sometimes
And I can't see myself

They say that some are born to burn
And some are born to give
They say that people live and learn
Some people only live and live

You don't know that I come here
But if you did, you would know why
So we close our eyes

You didn't notice me
As I passed you on the stairs
How could you ever guess
Looking at my face
How closely I share your taste
How well I know your place
Even the clothes you wear
I've seen them when you're not there

You say that you can win win win
If you know how to play the game
But while you're out there playing you see
There's something you should know
She spends your money
She spends your money on me
