Playin' games again I can feel the apprehension
For every word that leaves your mouth
Is swallowed by the tension
And if indeed it helps at all
I relate to what you're frightened of
'Cause so many things these days have been crushed
In the name of lo-o-ove
Actin' strong again as if you don't really need me
But the weakness that you once betrayed
Turned to be the strength that freed me
And I won't ask a thing of you
That you're not secure in giving of
'Cause so many things these days have been crushed
In the name of lo-ove
Now I know it's not that easy
When you don't know where you stand
At times I think I've never stood at all
Look around you'll see for every woman, child and man
Love has played it's games upon us all
Playin' roles again both actin' so defensive
As if some pre-programmed machine
Took over all our senses
I'd trade everything I own
For the thrill of fa-a-allin' in love
'Cause so many things these days have been saved
In the name - of lo-ove
