You cannot feel the twisting of my heart
Or see the sea that surges through my brain
Every time you play your fickle part

With practiced nonchalance and well-honed art
To lure some new recruit to your domain.
You cannot feel the twisting of my heart.

I know that I'd be happier apart
From you, but I must crave the pain
Every time you play your fickle part

And Cupid flips another poisoned dart
Into my desire with perfect aim.
You cannot feel the twisting of my heart.

Just when I think you're mine, again you start
To flutter in my hands, which grasp in vain
Every time you play your fickle part

And smile like some hot, adulterous tart
Out to drive all men in sight insane.
You cannot feel the twisting of my heart
Every time you play your fickle part.
