I've been wanting you 
For so long, it's a shame 
Oh, baby 
Every time I hear your name 
Oh, the pain 
Boy, how it hurts me inside 

‘Cause every time we meet 
We play hide and seek 
I'm wondering what I should do 
Should I, dear, come up to you 
And say, “How do you do?” 
Would you turn me away 

You're as much to blame 
‘Cause I know you feel the same 
I can see it in your eyes 
But I've got no time to live this lie
No, I've got no time to play your silly games 
Silly games 

Yet, in my mind I say 
“If he makes his move today 
I'll just pretend to be shocked” 
Oh, baby 
It's a tragedy 
That you hurt me 
We don't even try 

You're as much to blame 
‘Cause I know you feel the same 
I can see it in your eyes 
But I've got no time to live this lie
No, I've got no time to play your silly games 
Silly games 

Silly games 
Silly games (No, don't wanna play) 
Silly games (Your silly) 

No, I've got no time to play your silly games 

No
