Play For Today

This song is by The Cure and appears on the album Seventeen Seconds (1980).

This song has been covered by Tragic Black under the title "Play For Today".
It's not a case of doing what's right
It's just the way I feel that matters
Tell me I'm wrong
I don't really care

It's not a case of share and share alike
I take what I require
I don't understand
You say it's not fair

You expect me to act like a lover
Consider my moves and deserve the reward
To hold you in my arms
And wait
And wait
And wait for something to happen

It's not a case of telling the truth
Some lines just fit the situation
You call me a liar
You would anyway

It's not a case of aiming to please
You know you're always crying
It's just your part
In the play for today
