I love the silly games you play

Running through my mind all night and day

Your love is a gentle breeze

Kindling a fire inside of me.

 

I love the silly games you play

Running through my mind all night and day

Your love is a cool breeze on a summer day

But now somehow the season has changed…

 

I hope for the best while expecting the worst

I know that you’re trying to get to me first

Before I strike back, before you get burned

Before I react and the tables are turned

You put me to shame with the harshest of words

You strike with your tongue cause you know how it hurts

You well know my pain, you know how this works

You know that our vows brought us under a curse

I’m trying to do what I know you deserve

But what you deserve is not what you prefer

I’m searching for answers, I’m seeking a cure

But you’d rather stay lying down in the dirt

 

Love is just a game you play

Running through my mind all night and day

You sure know how to make a heart ache

Holding mine captive with fetters and chains…

 

Love is just a game you play

Running through my mind all night and day

You’ve got me tied in place

And I just can’t seem to get away

 

I don’t want to watch as this story unfolds

I’d rather not care, I’d rather not know

So scratch off my name from your twisted love-note

Break all these chains and let my love go

What more can I say? You’re on your own

Depart from my place and leave me alone

You say hell’s a place where everyone goes

I hope that you find it and call it your home.

 

I loathe the silly games you play

Making slick moves to my dismay

You sure know how to make a heart break

Smashing mine a hundred different ways

 

I loathe the silly games you play

Making slick moves to my dismay

You sure know how to make a heart break

And mine will never be the same

 

I can’t help those who won’t help themselves

So I kiss you goodbye and I wish you farewell

You’ve become a martyr, you cannot be helped

This is your fate, your sick fairy tale.

 

I hate the wicked games you play

Ripping me apart like a lion’s prey

I’m a victim of the moves you make

But one of these days the game will change.

 

I hate the wicked games you play

Tearing me apart like a lion’s prey

I’m a victim of the moves you make

But one of these days-one of these days……
