  • Lyrics
  • Knew he was a killer
    First time that I saw him
    Wonder how many girls he had loved and left haunted
    But if he's a ghost then
    I can be a phantom
    Holdin' him for ransom
    Some, Some
    Some boys are trying too hard
    He don't try at all though
    Younger than my exes but he acts like such a man, though
    I see nothing better
    Keeping him forever
    Like a vendetta-ta

    I-I-I see how this is gonna go
    Touch me and you'll never be alone
    I-Island breeze, lights down low
    No one has to know

    In the middle of the night, in my dreams
    You should see the things we do, baby mmm
    In the middle of the night in my dreams
    I know I'm gonna be with you
    So, I take my time
    Are you ready for it?

    Me, I was a robber
    First time that he saw me
    Stealing hearts and running off and never saying sorry
    But if I'm a thief then
    He can join the heist and
    We'll move into an island
    and, and, and…

    He can be my jailer
    Burton to this Taylor
    Every lover known in comparison is a failure
    I forget their names now
    I'm so very tame now
    I'll never be the same now

    In the middle of the night, in my dreams (yeah)
    You should see the things we do (we do), baby (mmm)
    In the middle of the night in my dreams (my dreams)
    I know I'm gonna be with you
    So, I take my time
    In the middle of the night

    Are you ready for it?
    Oh
    Are you ready for it?
    Baby, let the games begin
    The games begin
    The games begin
    (Are you ready for it?)
    So baby, let the games begin
    The games begin
    The games begin
    (Are you ready for it?)
    Are you ready for it?

    I-I-I see how this is gonna go
    Touch me and you'll never be alone
    I-Island breeze, lights down low
    No one has to know

    In the middle of the night, in my dreams (my dreams)
    You should see the things we do (we do), baby (baby, mmm)
    In the middle of the night in my dreams (my dreams)
    I know I'm gonna be with you
    So, I take my time
    In the middle of the night

    So, baby let the games begin
    The games begin
    The games begin
    (Are you ready for it?)
    So, baby let the games begin
    The games begin
    The games begin
    (Are you ready for it?) Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
