THE CARDIGANS


LOVEFOOL

Dear, I fear we're facing a problem
You love me no longer, I know
And maybe there is nothing
That I can do to make you do 

Mama tells me I shouldn't bother
That I ought to stick to another man
A man that surely deserves me
But I think you do! 

So I cry, I pray, and I beg 

Love me love me
Say that you love me
Fool me fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
Love me love me
Say that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
I can't care 'bout anything but you... 

Lately I have desperately pondered,
Spent my nights awake and I wonder
What I could have done in another way
To make you stay
Reason will not lead to solution
I will end up lost in confusion
I don't care if you really care
As long as you don't go 

So I cry, I pray, and I beg 

Love me love me
Say that you love me
Fool me fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me

Love me love me
Say that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
I can't care 'bout anything but you... 

 

MY FAVOURITE GAME

I don't know what you're looking for
You haven't found it baby, that's for sure
You rip me up and spread me all around
In the dust of the deed of time
And this is not a case of lust, you see
It's not a matter of you versus me
It's fine the way you want me on your own
But in the end it's always me alone 

And I'm losing my favourite game
You're losing your mind again
I'm losing my baby
Losing my favourite game 

I only know what I've been king for
Another you so I could love you more
I really thought that I could take you there
But my experiment is not getting us anywhere
I had a vision I could turn you right
A stupid mission and a lethal fight
I should have seen it when my hope was new
My heart is black and my body is blue 

And I'm losing my favourite game
You're losing your mind again
I'm losing my favourite game
You're losing your mind again
I'm losing my baby
Losing my favourite game 

I'm losin my favourite game
You're losing your mind again
I've tried
I've tried
But you're still the same
I'm losing my baby
You're losing a saviour and a saint
