I never thought U would b the 1 that I'd wanna run 2
I never thought U would b the 1 that would make me care
And even though U've done me wrong 4 some strange reason I can't explain
I get happy knowin' U phoned cuz U're voice could kill my every pain
Why do we play this silly game?

I never thought U would b the 1 that I'd wanna give 2
A diamond ring, anything that U ask me 2
But there U were braggin' 2 ur friend, makin' up a story that's so lame
That I was down 2 b ur sugar daddy, 1-way ticket 2 ghetto fame
Why do we play this silly game?

Every other night U weren't at home
Out n the streets just actin' grown
Never with a bodyguard or chaperone
Then I hear a rumor that breaks my heart
Instead of takin' care of urself U're tearin' urself apart
Now why U wanna, now why U wanna go and do that, love?
Why do we play this silly game?

I never thought U would b the 1 that I'd wanna run 2
I never thought U'd b the 1 that would make me care
No matter how far I'd run, I'd never b the same
N the end, n the end there's only us 2 blame
Why do we play this...
Why do we play this silly...
Why do we play this silly game?

Oh...
Tell me why?
Oh why, why... do we play this silly game?
