Verse 1

You may think

That I'm the kind of girl

Who would light up a candle of hope

And sit around and wait and heave a sigh.

You're so wrong.

Cause I'm the kind of girl

Who would strangle you with a rope

And sit right there and watch as you die.

Chorus

You're playing with fire.

And when you are tired,

I'll burn you so bad you'll bruise.

You tried to play me, now you lose.

I'll expose you to all your friends and mine.

You're playing with fire, that's fine.

Verse 2

You may think

That you have me fooled

And so completely in your control.

And you can use me for your benefit.

You're so wrong,

You pathetic little tool.

You can never ever take over my soul

And my mind and each and every heartbeat.

Chorus

You're playing with fire.

And when you are tired,

I'll burn you so bad you'll bruise.

You tried to play me, now you lose.

I'll expose you to all your friends and mine.

You're playing with fire, that's fine.

Bridge

I'll flip you the bird, in due course.

First let them all see how innocent I am.

I don't care what your reasons are.

If I trust you, don't you think you should give a damn?

Now we're both racing on top of a land mine.

I'll watch you explode when we reach the finish line.

I'll expose you to all your friends and mine.

You're playing with fire, that's fine.

Chorus

You're playing with fire.

And when you are tired,

I'll burn you so bad you'll bruise.

You tried to play me, now you lose.

I'll expose you to all your friends and mine.

You're playing with fire, that's fine.
