The Game

Versions: #1#2#3
It’s already late, and everyone's asleep, and its time for you to turn in,
Tomorrow at eight the game will begin,
Tomorrow the sun will rise early at eight in the morning,
The tea must be strong, as strong as the ice outside.
Theres two rules to the game, if you break them - its over,
Tomorrow you will have wished that you slept.
 
But right now the tree branches outside are knocking on your window,
You could get to bed, and kill off this night.
The branches are scratching the dark glass, like animals,
It’s not too late to lie down and finish off the night.
 
No calls, nor steps, or jangling of keys,
Barely audible next to your bed the ticking of the clock,
Everyone has already gone to bed long ago.
Theres only water from the tap, drop by drop,
Just days from the calendar, falling off day by day,
You’ll go out into the forest to chop some wood, and you’ll only find stumps.
 
But right now the tree branches outside are knocking on your window,
You could get to bed, and kill off this night.
The branches are scratching the dark glass, like animals,
It’s not too late to lie down and finish off the night.
 
Thanks!

И мы знаем, что так было всегда. Что судьбою был больше любим,
кто живёт по законам другим, и кому умирать молодым.
