Lyrics

Check Mate

I never thought that kiss and tell
Could be such a dangerous game
Before I had something to sell
Now I’ve got nothing to my name

I saw you there, I sought you out
I thought I’d checked my mate
But you were leaning on a cold shoulder
When you passed my way

And now you think about 
The ways you could have changed it
If you only would have seen it coming down
You set your sail up and you took to one direction
But you never turned the stern or the bow

And then he said how,
How do you do?
I guess I’m doing fine
I guess I just thought that you would always be mine

So when you took the turnaround, I took the alternate route
I swung by the long and found and left you something fool proof
That you were there, and I was scared and now there’s no debate
And every players got to play the game that’s why they call it check mate

And now you think about 
The ways you could have changed it
If you only would have seen it coming down
You set your sail up and you took to one direction
But you never turned the stern or the bow

And then he said how,
How do you do?
I guess I’m doing fine
I guess I just thought that you would always be mine
