Chris Isaak – Wicked Game lyrics

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I lose somebody like you.

No, I wanna fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I wanna fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you. With you.

What a wicked game to play, to make me feel this way.
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you.
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way.
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you and,

I wanna fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I wanna fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you.

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish lovers do.
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I wanna fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I wanna fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I... (This world is only gonna break your heart)
(This world is only gonna break your heart)

Nobody loves no one.

    This song is about a woman who is playing with a man's feelings, and she is either aware that she's doing so or she's not aware and can't help it that she's just having a good time with him, but he's forcefully trying not to fall in love because she's like the illusive butterly. It's not her fault, and it's not his, but they play this terrible game and play with eachother's emotions. If she were aware that he was falling, and not wanting to reciprocate then she is cruel. If she didn't know, then she's as clueless and naive to his advances and his forced control to not want her.

    In reading the lyrics, watching the video and hearing the song. I take that the man is madly falling for the woman. She is what one might consider an hechicera(gypsy/witch) only because she is so appealing and making him fall for her. The sexual attraction that they share is great and immense hes not sure if it is just that or more, because his heart is telling him otherwise but its a great song all around. Love isn't certain, love is not planned. Love is just love, sometimes it happens, one sided- for both-or just doesn't. ;)

    He was the man I made love to with such a soaring spirit of elation and freedom that he never got over it nor found another such. But, he wronged me, and so, ended his reign in my heart forever. He was the one wicked in the end, and he lost at his own game.
