Cheryl – One Thousand lyrics

My heart's ablaze with a kind of emotion
I see his face when I close my eyes
I speak his name in my sleep
'Cause he's here in my dreams
Whisperin' softly "I'll stay by your side"
My heart's a drum
And my mind is an ocean
You have my heart
So wherever I go
I let you drum by the sea
Sending ripples through me
Like a siren you beckon me home

I must have cried a thousand times
I've heard thousands of your lies
Walked ten thousand miles for you
So for the thousandth time don't…
Don't play with me
Don't play with me
Don't play with me no more
Don't you play with me
Don't play with me
Don't play with me no more

You were well disguised and protected
'Cause you wore your mask when we met
And you never took it off
No you never took it off
No you never even knew what it meant
And I tried to reason and bargain
(Reason and bargain yes I did)
Even compromised and I begged
(Oh yes I begged oh yes I begged)
Now I see what you are
I know what you could be
But I'll never forget what you've been

I must have cried a thousand times
I've heard thousands of your lies
Walked ten thousand miles for you
So for the thousandth time don't
Don't play with me
Don't play with me
Don't play with me no more
Don't you play with me
Don't play with me
Don't play with me no more

If it's not what you want
And I'm not what you want
Then what do you want from me?
I'm screaming you won
At the top of my lungs
So why not be done with me?
Let it burn, let it burn, let it burn
'Cause boy I don't trust ya
So it's bitter when I say so
I know I still love ya
