A wonderful love ballad from the 80's.

Watch a lyrics video version here.

The world was on fire,
And, no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish lovers 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
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
With you

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 let me dream of you.

And I don't want to fall in love
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
And I don't want to fall in love
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
With you

The world was on fire,
No one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish lovers do.
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you.
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
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
With you
[This world is only gonna break your heart]

No I...
[This world is only gonna break your heart]
[This world is only gonna break your heart]

Nobody loves...no one

ON FIRE= Burning (this may suggest passion or destruction or both)

FOOLISH= Stupid, silly.

WANNA= (coll.) Want to.

FALL IN LOVE= Start loving a person passionately.

GONNA= (coll.) Going to.

HEART= /hɑ:*t/ The organ inside you that pumps blood all around your body, metaphorically used as the place where emotions are. If somebody BREAKS YOUR HEART, you suffer a lot because you loved them and now they left you.

WICKED= Evil, bad.

This song has an emotional pain to it but yet a sexiness at the same time. to me its mor about a man who has met an incredible woman possibly at a time in his life where he is not ready for her or has just come out of another relationship or simply has no faith in relationships not ending in heartache. its like a battle with himself as 'i never dreamed that id meet somebody like you' and 'i dont wanna fall in love with you' almost as if he knows its happening but doesnt want it to because it frightens him, and then he says 'this love is only goign to break your heart' almost as if he is saying it to himself. its as though he can feel himself falling for her and he doesnt want to so it can come across as though he is angry at her in a way for getting under his skin? Very sexy clip too.

"Wicked Game" is a tale of obsessive love. Chris Isaak spoke about the late-night event which inspired the song: "This one I wrote really late at night and it was written in a short time, because I remember that a girl had called me and said, 'I want to come over and talk to you,' and 'talk' was a euphemism. And she said, 'I want to come over and talk to you until you're no longer able to stand up.' And I said, 'Okay, you're coming over.' And as soon as I hung up I thought, 'Oh, my God. I know she's gonna be trouble. She's always been trouble. She's a wildcat. And here I am, I'm going to get killed, but I'm doing this.' And I wrote 'Wicked Game': 'world's on fire and no one can save me but you.' It's like you start thinking about it, and by the time she came over to the house, I had the song written. And I think she was probably upset because I was more excited by the song. (Laughing) I was like, 'Yes, you're gorgeous, baby. But listen to this song!'"
