Song: Eventually - Poem by Shiv Wallis

I'm an opportunity
and i knock so softly
Sometimes I get loud
when I wish everybody'd just get off me

So many players
you'd think i was a board game
It's every man for themself
There are no teammates

This life gets lonely
When everybody wants something
They'll smile up in your face
But they'll get theirs eventually
And i hope i'm there

Surrounded by familiar faces with no names
None of them know me or want to share my pain
They only wish to bask in my life
then fade away

To win my love, to them a game
To watch me live my life in vain
When all is done and the glitter fades away
They'll get theirs eventually
and i hope i'm there

I drank your poison
Because you told me it was wine
Shame on you if you fooled me once
Shame on me if oyu fooled me twice
but i didn't know the price
You'll get yours eventually

So what good am i to you
If i can't be broken?
You'll get yours, yes
You'll get yours eventually
