VERSE 1:

Just forget about talking this one over
And listen up darling
Pour yourself a drink and find yourself a seat
Trust, it's a funny thing
But I'm not laughing
I know your wondering
Oh, how could he know
I worked so carefully
Undercover and into his bed
The truth is written or your neck
(Your best friend gave you up!)


CHORUS:

(Don't be, don't be so surprised)
You are so cunning it's disgusting
The way your words fall from your lips
Insidious and innocent
I've got a plan to set this straight
Yeah it's called "Two can play this game"
Your not the only one who lies, I'll make this,
I'll make this right

VERSE 2:

(You might not see it, she's got a secret)
Now are you having trouble breathing?
Are you having trouble finding the words to make this go away?
And those marks on your neck
Are they burning, are they burning yet?
Undercover in between her hips
The truth was drawn out from your best friends' lips
(Your best friend gave you up!)


BRIDGE:

It takes two to play
But only one to initiate
Now we're both playing our parts
Now we're both playing our parts
It takes two to play
But only one to initiate
Now we both play our parts


OUTRO:

You might not see it
She's got a secret my friend
You might not see it
She's got a secret
You might not see it
She's got a secret my friend
You might not see it

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who was cheating on her boyfriend, and he found out even though she was trying to be secretive about it.

    "The truth is written on your neck"
    That obviously means that she has hickeys.

    "Your best friend gave you up"
    Her best friend told the guy that her friend was cheating on the guy.
    So he's going to do the same to her.

    "I'll make this right"
    Probably meaning two wrongs do make a right?
