"One On One"

I'll play you for your heart, One on one. I will knock you down. I will spit in your face. I will give you a scar, that you can't erase. You will sweat until you bleed. You will cry. You will be swallowed up, In your own greed. You might even die. I will only get one chance, to play  the game. Maybe then, your wild heart I can tame. I will be able to put up a fight. You also have one chance, to see which choice is right. If I win the game, in my heart you must stay. If you win the game, you may choose your own way. I promise it will be fair. Just one on one. But you have to promise not to quit; not to stop until the game is done!
