Transcript

The world was on fire,
And, no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.
And I never dreamed that I'd need somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you.

No, I don't wanna fall in love
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
No, I don't wanna fall in love
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
With you


With you
[This world is only gonna break your heart]


What a wicked game to play;
To make me feel this way.
What a wicked thing to do;
To let me dream of you.
What a wicked thing to say;
You never felt this way.
What a wicked thing to do;
To make me dream of you.

And I don't want to fall in love
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
No, I don't want to fall in love
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
With you
