"I write for the same reason I breathe -- because if I didn't, I would die." -Isaac Asimov


Tangled in a web of words
And subtle clues
Why is everything in code
Not splashed across the news?
You freeze me out
Then you’re too hot to handle
Can’t you spell it out?
Like in Scrabble

I don’t want to play Go Fish (endless asking)
I want to be Monopoly (everlasting)

CHORUS:
If I’m not playing you’re not winning
Where is your victory?
I’m just annoyed and confused
It’s no fun for me
I really really really like you
I want to be together
But if you don’t stop playing games
Then we will never
Never (never) be together
Never (never) be together

Tangled in a web of smiles
And manic flirting
Can’t you see that we click
That it’s working?
This is no game of cat and mouse
Just tell me how you feel
What, you’re giving me the cold shoulder?
Wait, what base are you trying to steal?

CHORUS:
If I’m not playing you’re not winning
Where is your victory?
I’m just annoyed and confused
It’s no fun for me
I really really really like you
I want to be together
But if you don’t stop playing games
Then we will never
Never (never) be together
Never (never) be together

I don’t want to play Go Fish (endless asking)
I want to be Monopoly (everlasting)
This isn’t chess, this isn’t football
Don’t want to sit around and wait for your call
I don’t want to play Go Fish (endless asking)
I want to be Monopoly (everlasting)
I don’t want to play Go Fish (endless asking)
I want to be Monopoly (everlasting)

CHORUS:
If I’m not playing you’re not winning
Where is your victory?
I’m just annoyed and confused
It’s no fun for me
I really really really like you
I want to be together
But if you don’t stop playing games
Then we will never
Never (never) be together
Never (never) be together


The author's comments:
This was written randomly one night, not exactly from personal experience. I was kind of just thinking about people toying with each other's emotions and how annoying it can be. I don't like playing games, except the board kind. ;D Lol. I think a lot of people feel that way.
