The Carpenters - Solitaire
Tekst: Phil Cody / Muziek: Neil Sedaka
(1975)




There was a man
A lonely man
Who lost his love
Through his indifference



A heart that cared
That went unshared
Until it died
Within his silence



And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him
Takes him down
And by himself it’s easy to pretend
He’ll never love again



And keeping to himself
He plays the game
Without her love
It always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He’s playing solitaire



A little hope
Goes up in smoke
Just how it goes
Goes without saying



There was a man
A lonely man
Who would command
The hand he’s playing



And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him
Takes him down
And by himself it’s easy to pretend
He’ll never love again



And keeping to himself
He plays the game
Without her love
It always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He’s playing solitaire



And solitaire’s the only game in town
And every road that takes him
Takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere
He’s playing solitaire
