​Playing The Game

This song is by Ywis and appears on the album Ywis (1983).

It isn't easy wanting
To change the world at fourteen
Nor fighting people
And countries you've never seen
You think it's strange that grown-ups
Never noticed the wrong being done
And you'll take every chance to tell them
How this old world should be run

The world around you is so cruel
Though you can't grasp the real scene
At least your friends share your ideals
You fight the truth as a team
Your feelings are constantly confused
Still you love life just the same
'Cause you know that things will change
And you will beat them at their game

You'd better hang on to your dreams
You'd better hang on...

It isn't easy staying the same
After your teens
And be accepted in your job
When you are wearing blue jeans
You still think it's strange that people
Don't want to see the wrong being done
But now you are not so sure
About how this old world should be run

The world around you is cruel
You know it's worse the real scene
And you don't have too many friends
And you don't belong to a team
Now you seldom get confused
And you love life just the same
But you can't be sure if things will change
And now you're playing in their game

You'd better hang on to your dreams
You'd better hang on...

It isn't easy being yourself
When you're wearing blue jeans
You don't care about
People and countries
You've never seen

You think it's strange
That youngsters even try to fight
The wrong being done
And if you get a chance you tell them
This is the way this world should be run
The world around you is so cruel

But you don't want to see that scene
You share society's ideals
And you play on the first team
Now you never get confused
And your lives are the same
And you don't care if things will change
'Cause you'll never win this game

You'd better hang on to your dreams
You'd better hang on...
