  • 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
