Playing Games
Posted on: 10/19/2019 10:53 AM

Have you ever noticed how many times Gerry has used a particular word in his song lyrics whether the songs are America's or from his solo work?

WEDNESDAY MORNING
I guess she figured it was better if she walked
It could've been me just the same
There's no winner in this game

MONSTER
Heart, court and harmony just ain't the same
My black and their green playing some games
I've got all these pictures I just need the frames

ONE DAY'S DUNING
Don't be confused if the wording you choose
Changes all the things you say
And the games you play

NO FORTUNE
Just say you will, we can call it a day
It's not as though we ain't sinned
It's just a game we all play
There was nothing to win

HERE & NOW
Here and now,
Where people change their names
And play the waiting game
All in the name of fame

SHE'S GONNA LET YOU DOWN
Doesn't matter what we say
Love's the stubbornest game to play
Given time you might see it our way
And we'll be sorry boy until that day
She's gonna break away

MIRROR TO MIRROR
I haven't seen forever
Don't even know her name
I call on dreams and other schemes
To try and win that game

DAISY JANE
Well, I left her just to roam the city
Thinkin' it would ease the pain
I'm a crazy man
And I'm playin' my crazy game, game

CALLING
I remember long ago
When love was just a game

LOVELY NIGHT
But I'll go lookin' for the fallin' rain
Keep on movin', keep on playin' that game
Let's go lookin' for the fallin' rain

Interesting K of G.. not sure what to make of it... i did remember thinking - but i can't remember exactly what... but i remember thinking a couple of times that songs from a new album somehow tied into the prior album... i have to think about it... but this is interesting...

Dave - Perhaps of further interest is that there's a few other songs that mention the word "game" in its lyrics that are sung by GLB but were not written by him. Here they are:

I DON'T BELIEVE IN MIRACLES (Written by Russ Ballard)
I believe I was your game, your ball
If you tossed me up then I would fall
And so you've won again, ah, you win them all
But I believe I'd run to you, if you should call

SOMETHING IN THE WAY SHE MOVES (Written by James Taylor)
There’s something in the way she moves
Or looks my way or calls my name
That seems to leave this troubled world behind
And if I'm feelin’ down and blue
Or troubled by some foolish games
She always seems to make me change my mind

DON'T LET THE SUN CATCH YOU CRYING (Written by Freddie Marsdan and Les Maguire; Made popular by Gerry and The Pacemakers)
It may be hard to discover
That you've been left for another
But don't forget that love's a game
And it can always come again
Oh don't let the sun catch you crying

YOU COULD'VE BEEN THE ONE (Written by John Batdorf and Sue Sheridan)
If I come back here I might see you again
And maybe you'd say yes
But it's a losin' game I'm tryin' to win
And I can only guess

RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES (Written by Ian Thomas)
Today I'm done with games
Gonna ask you for your name
Say I've been watching you
I even know what you do

Another song that mentions game(s) is Flower Of Love that Gerry sang and was on a Japanese CD the name of which escapes me.

If I remember correctly the line is:

Here comes the summer time we play amazing games
