  • Is this a game you're playing?
    I don't understand what's going on
    I can't see through your frown, first you're up then you're down
    You're keeping me from someone I want to know.

    And I need you tonight
    Yes I need you tonight
    And I'll show you a sunset if you stay with me till dawn.

    It's the same old situation
    Every word so finely placed
    Running around my concentration is the feeling that I've just got to break out and say

    Oh I need you tonight
    Yes I need you tonight
    And I'll show you a sunset if you stay with me till dawn.

    Is this a game you're playing?
    Playing with my heart
    Oh stop playing with my heart
    And I'll show you a sunset if you'll stay with me till dawn. Writer/s: JUDIE TZUKE, MICHAEL VICTOR PAXMAN
