All Your Games

I don't wanna play another game
I don't wanna break my heart again
I don't wanna see you with her
I don't wanna leave your arms

But whenever we are together
My heart tries to run the show
But when I get it under control
I wanna play your game again

Let's just play play play
All your games games games
And watch me fall apart
Let's just go go go
Get the board board board
So we can play your games

I know it's a change of heart
But that change shows you favor
Cause no matter how you break me
I will somehow make my comeback

And even when I see the darkest hour
I'll find a way to believe there's hope
Cause my stupid heart won't let you go
And I still don't wanna let you go


Let's just play play play
All your games games games
And watch me fall apart
Let's just go go go
Get the board board board
So we can play your games
Let's go play your stupid game
Will you beat me at this game?

Now we're in the final round
Are you ready for the showdown
I can take a few more hits
I swear I can survive this

And though it may sound insane
I have my plan all made
All I ask of you is to commit
Take my heart and destroy it

I want you to break it
And then give it back
So that way I can heal from you
And find someone else


Let's just play play play
All your games games games
And watch me fall apart
Let's just go go go
Get the board board board
So we can play your games

I like the bridge :) It's a bit of a twist. As if the writer wants to be with this person, but knows they are better off without that person. They know they need to be broken to be set free.
