I've played the games, the masquerades
By the time the eleventh hour fades
You're bound to know that what I say is true

And I'm the one you're looking for
Every time you find that cheatin' door
I'll just keep pretending I never knew

But what are we in this for
When our hearts are on the line?
And if a heart could brake
You're surely breaking mine

And if we fall to ruin
It wasn't my design
