I never thought you would be the one
That I'd want to run to
I never thought you would be the one
That would make me care
And even tho you done me wrong
For some strange reason I can't explain
I get happy knowing you phoned
Cause your voice could kill my every pain
Why do we play this silly game?

I never thought you would be the one
That I'd want to give to
A diamond ring, anything that you ask me to
But there you were, bragging to your friends
Making up a story that's so lame
That I was down to be your sugar daddy
One way ticket to ghetto fame
Why do we play this silly game?

Every other night you weren't at home
Out in the streets, just acting grown
Never with a bodyguard or chaperon
Then I hear a rumor that breaks my heart
Instead of taking care of yourself
You're tearing yourself apart
Now why you want to
(Why you want to, why you want to)
Now why you want to go and do that, love?

Why do we play this silly game?

I never thought you would be the one
(That I'd want to run to) that I'd want to run to
I never thought you'd be the one
That would make me care
No matter how far I run
I'll never be the same (I'll never be the same)
In the end, in the end, there's only us to blame
Why do we play this,
Why do we play this silly,
Why do we play this silly game?

Yeah
Oh-oh
Tell me why? (Tell me why?)
Oh why? (Oh why?)
Oh why, why?

Why do we play this silly game?
Game
