When love is nothing but a game...

Never again…

Will I love you.

Never again…

Will I stay.

Never again will I stay

When I know better than to stay.

The voice inside my head

Warned me to fold my cards

And just walk away-

Accept defeat as no failure.

Always look back. Never look back.

Never again will I love you

And let my heart stumble foolishly

Into the games

You seem to forever play-

Endless mazes with no way out

And no way for me to win.

You, the control master,

And me, the little girl

Running in every direction

For my heart to catch yours.

It never will. I never will.

I'm chasing hearts,

but hearts can't be caught;

they can only be given.
