Lyrics

Dirty Game (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Verse 1
Did you ever love somebody who could turn you outside in?
Did you ever try to finish off what you don't know how to begin?
It's like trying to hide in an empty room
Swim in a dried-out pool
The trouble is you're playing the game and you don't understand the rules


Chorus
You'd better not fall in love 'til you're ready to stand the pain
If you should fall in love remember it's a dirty game
You'd better not fall in love (fall in love)
If you should fall in love
Remember it's a dirty game


Verse 2
Did you ever love the kind of girl who could turn you heels over head?
Did you ever try to live a life when your heart tells you that you're dead?
It's like trying to fly when you've got no wings
Sit where there is no stool
The trouble is you're playing the game and you don't understand the rules

Repeat chorus
