Verse 1

Behind that skilled flirt

Is a broken heart,

But I know better than trying to fix it.

You think that I'd learn my lesson, and I did.

Chorus

So you can say the very right things,

(Or you can run for cover)

But I won't indulge in these feelings.

(So you should run for cover)

You're a player, this I know.

But I never, let it show,

Because I won't, I won't blow

My cover of ignorance,

My cover of innocence.

Verse 2

Behind this sweet girl

Is a burnt out world,

Of lies, deception and broken promises.

I no longer melt at texts with sweet kisses.

Chorus

So you can say the very right things,

(Or you can run for cover)

But I won't indulge in these feelings.

(So you should run for cover)

You're a player, this I know.

But I never, let it show,

Because I won't, I won't blow

My cover of ignorance,

My cover of innocence.

Bridge

Run for, run for cover.

You don't know me, lover,

Lover boy,

You're just a toy.

My heart's not on the line,

It can't be destroyed.

Chorus

So you can say the very right things,

(Or you can run for cover)

But I won't indulge in these feelings.

(So you should run for cover)

You're a player, this I know.

But I never, let it show,

Because I won't, I won't blow

My cover of ignorance,

My cover of innocence,

My cover, oh yeah, yeah.
