I been up and down before
Grief won't hold me any more
You're running out of games to play
I don't have to live this way

Thought I loved you for awhile
You were loaded up on style
Talk is cheap but I won't play
I don't have to live this way

No I won't play the games that you've designed
And I won't wait to listen to your lines
Before you speak another word
I'll repeat it so I'm heard
You're running out of games to play
I don't have to live this way

You won't stay another night
Or did you want another right
Now I've got the eyes to see
You get your kicks by hurting me

No I won't play the games that you've designed
And I won't wait to listen to your lines
Before you speak another word
I'll repeat it so I'm heard
You're running out of games to play
I don't have to live this way
