"Surprise Surprise" as written by Martin Peter Harrington, Ash Howes and Kara E. Dioguardi....
Surprise surprise
I told you lies
I thought the truth would set you free
Surprise surprise
It isn't all as it seems
But who knew you'd wake up from your dreams
If I told you myself
I could've saved you the hell
Now look who's sorry
God, I'm so sorry
It's never the right time
I guess it's do or die

[Chorus]
Just when you think you've got me figured me out
Just when you think you know me well
Baby, you've barely even broke the ice
My river runs wide
You're not inside
But you're closer than you were

Tonight, I'm a chameleon
And every spot's hiding my scars
But I will survive
'Cause I'll only let you in
When I can be sure of who you are
And you can call it a game
But it's me playing safe
And God I'm so sorry, I'm just so sorry
What can I say?
I thought you'd want to stay alive

[Chorus]

You were tonight, tonight, tonight

And it's in your eyes
That is all or nothing
What I can disguise is that you're on to something
I let myself go, will you still want me?
Will I be enough?
The fear of that haunts me
'Cause what if you walk away?

[Chorus]

You were tonight, tonight, tonight

Just when you think you've got me figured me out
Just when you think you've got me figured me out
Surprise, surprise

    General CommentI think that these lyrics are about someone who can't let anyone get close to her (or him), so anytime someone thinks they've gotten close, they've "barely even broke the ice". The subject of the song gets accused of "playing games", but really is just trying to protect her- or himself.
