Game of Love

It’s a crowded room
It’s a busy party
She looks great in red
He steels himself
And he regrets not wearing
Sunday’s best instead

But he plays it cool
And he wins her over
With his charm
And she is sure
That by the next month
She will be on his arm

She’s a little too sure
She don’t know what to do when he adores her

It’s a game, game, game, of love, love, love
Just when you think you get one step above
You get kicked right to the bottom
And just when you think you’ve caught him
With your sarcasm, the way you dress
Or where you act like you could not care less
You get surprised when he don’t call you
But surprise should not befall you
Because you’re just another player
In the game of love

He’s at a bar
He’s with his friends
He likes the waitress
He waves his hand
And says, “Excuse me,
can you please help me, miss?”

He gets her number
But he’s dumber
Than he thought
‘Cause he was so serious
And into it
But she’s not

It’s a crying shame
That his friends didn’t tell him of who’s to blame

‘Cause it’s a game, game, game, of love, love, love
Just when you think you get one step above
You get sunk into the water
Just when he thinks he’s caught her
With his thought-out jokes, his side-swept hair
The way he makes her think he really cares
He acts shocked when she don’t call him
But shock should not befall him
Because he’s just another player
In the game of love

And I’m a victim of it too
The time I thought I one-upped you

In the game, game, game, of love, love, love
Just when I thought I got one step above
I got kicked right to the bottom
And just when I thought I caught him
With my sarcasm, the way I dress
Or where I act like I could not care less
I got surprised when he didn’t call me
But surprise should not befall me
Because I’m just another player
In the game of love
