This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Sleepless Nights (1982).

Harcourt-Jackson

So many people are gonna try to fool you
Get to thinking that your the biggest thing in town,
They run around make a fuss and trying to please you,
Build you up so they can bring you down.

You've given all you've got now, you can't afford to stop now
You've everything to lose, when you're winning the game.
They messing you around, they trying and do you down
They push you to the ground, now you're winning the game.

They take your to place where the people are gonna know you,
Ask you questions you've answered time and time before,
They wanna feel what it's like to be in your shoes
To sail the sea but never have to leave the shore.

You've given all you've got now, you can't afford to stop now
You've everything to lose, when you're winning the game.
They messing you around, they trying and do you down
They push you to the ground, now you're winning the game.

When you're winning the game, they remember your name
They don't raise to a smile, when you talk out of style,
Can't you see it's true, there's just me and you
Stand to lose when you're winning the game.

You've given all you've got now, you can't afford to stop now
You've everything to lose, when you're winning the game.
They messing you around, they trying and do you down
They push you to the ground, now you're winning the game.

You've given all you've got now, you can't afford to stop now
You've everything to lose, when you're winning the game.
They messing you around, they trying and do you down
They push you to the ground, now you're winning the game.
