I never thought you would be the one
That I'd wanna run to
I never thought you would be the one
That would make me care

And even though you done me wrong
For some strange reason I can't explain
I get happy knowin' you phoned
'Cuz your voice could cure my every pain
Why do we play this silly game?

I never thought you would be the one
That I'd wanna give to
A diamond ring, anything that you asked me to
But there you were, braggin' to your friend

Makin' up a story that's so lame
That I was down to be your sugar daddy
One way ticket to get a fame
Why do we play this silly game?

Every other night you weren't at home
Out in the streets, just acting grown
Never with a bodyguard or chaperon
Then I hear a rumor that breaks my heart

Instead of takin' care of yourself, you're tearin' yourself apart
Now why you wanna? Why you wanna? Why you wanna?
Now why you wanna go and do that, love?
Why do we play this silly game?

I never thought you would be the one
That I'd wanna run to
I never thought you'd be the one
That would make me care

No matter how far I'd run
I'll never be the same
In the end, in the end
There's only us to blame

Why do we play this?
Why do we play this silly?
Why do we play this silly game?

Oh, tell me why?
Oh why? Oh why?
Why? Why? Why?
Why do we play this silly game?
Game
