Playing a Dangerous Game

Look out from around the corner
Keep down low, you’ll be fine
Use all the trust I gave to you
to sneak your way inside

I’m starting to see strange shadows
Suspicion uncomfortably high
Sometimes you cross a line, it’s too late
You’d better run for cover when they turn on the lights

Chorus
The devil on your shoulder gave you terrible advice
You fooled me once but you’ll never fool me twice
You got burned by the fire now you’re accusing the flame
Of playing a dangerous game

You tried to keep the charade up too long
You gave yourself away
The spotlight’s on you know and you’re through
You took a big chance, well that’s the price that you pay

Chorus
The devil on your shoulder gave you terrible advice
You fooled me once but you’ll never fool me twice
You got burned by the fire now you’re accusing the flame
Of playing a dangerous game

Bridge
And who would believe such a story
A tale too tall to be true
No one can blame you know
You’re all out of options
There’s not much left you can do
