Convince her that she’s in love
That you’ve been sent from above
After all her searching
The one is here at last
But you sound too good to be true
Not sure that you can see it through
She’s completely hooked
And losing control fast

She thinks she’s found the love of her life
In her mind she’s already your wife
‘cause she believes she’s found her ideal man
But I don’t see it in your eyes
I think she’s in for a nasty surprise
I think this is all part of your master plan

Just buy her gifts and tell her things
You think she wants to hear
You don’t have to show real feelings
She’ll never know you’re insincere
But after the performance
The audience will gasp
That’s when you reveal
What’s really underneath the mask

Misogynist control freak man
Seeks compliant woman
For some rough and tumble at his whim
Forget your personality
You won’t need it now you belong to him
You failed to read the signs
And now he owns your everything

It started with a moonlit serenade
But he’s the lead in his own dark charade
Seduction is so easy to create
A game where only he knows the rules
It’s an act that has everybody fooled
Once you realise it’s already far too late

Without remorse, draw her into the flame
Break her down and then take no blame
But I refuse to believe you’re all the same
What it comes down to girl
Is you have to see the truth
He should be ashamed
‘cause love isn’t just a game

Promette l’amore, ma è soltanto giocatore
Ha tutte le parole, sì, ma non ama con il cuore
