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 knew somebody like you.

No, I don't want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don't want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
With you. With you. (This world is only gonna break your heart)

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 make me dream of you and,

I want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to 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 people do.
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you no,

No, I want to fall in love. (This world is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to 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.

    What crazy things we are willing to give up, sacrifice, for love even when it is only one-sided. When already tied down by something else we don't want to have these feelings. These feelings that will make us willing to change our whole world for the one's we love. Because it is never planned when you meet the one you feel is the "one". To only find in the end the feeling wasn't mutual.

    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. ;)

    This song was dedicated by my husband in a game, and I cried so much upon hearing it, cause it hurts to make him fall for me, he said its a wicked game to play his heart, his dreams and make him feel the way I do, but I do really love him with all my heart, it's just hat I'm in a commitment in real life, and he wanted us to go real, not only in the game, and it breaks my heart to make him feel that way. Darksiphantom, I love you with all my heart, you are my soul mate my true love, it just happen that I can't be with you in real life cause of my commitments I love you and will always will.

    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.

    Jesus christ to the lady who was in a commitment in a game and fell in love with a fantasy.
    Sigh. When the illusions are gone, the commitment to your boyfriend or husband or whoever you are with, is more real than the one in the game. Or you can tell your current bf etc that you fell in love with someone else and go with them, but then, that's really flitting from one man to another.
    You all are terrible falling for a fantasy.

    I love chrisbrown! I am a huge fan of chrisbrown! I would like to give chrisbrown a kiss one day! Cause his vocals affectd me once. Chrisbrown you once said "stop living four others and start living your life" not exactly like this but something in that direction I am nhow saying this vyb toyou.

Do your thing chrisbrown and nevernever worry about him. I love chrisbrown! Chrisbrown is toogenerous! Chrisbrownneedstoenjoyhissuccess! I love you!
