The heart wants what the heart wants
When I’m standing on the edge
It’s time to make a choice
The most repulsive one of all is if I fall it’s all my fault
The heart wants what the heart wants
I know it isn’t you

Will you take this as a hint
I won’t take shit from anyone
You pushed too hard, took this too far
Nothing’s ever fair in love and war
Wipe that grin off your face

You’ll always be a joker to me
Same old story, same routine
Now that I’ve seen the tricks up your sleeve
I’m not one for make believe
You use your illusions and hide what’s inside
Save it for someone who buys your love
You’ll always be a joker to me but I’m not laughing anymore

Well I can’t say it’s been a pleasure just a pain and quite a mess
I’m no damsel in distress, a weight off my chest
I can breathe without your hands around my neck
You’re mistaken if you ever think you’ll make another fool out of me
How pathetic can you be?
Smile at the crowd, take one last bow
The show’s over no one’s laughing now

You’ll always be a joker to me
Same old story, same routine
Now that I’ve seen the tricks up your sleeve
I’m not one for make believe
You use your illusions and hide what’s inside
Save it for someone who buys your love
You’ll always be a joker to me but I’m not laughing anymore

I’ve got a couple tricks of my own, a few I still haven’t shown
When I get you alone
Now you see it now you don’t

You’ve backed me in the corner for the last time I’m taking control
Standing at the edge with your life in my hands and I let you fall

You’ll always be a joker to me
Same old story, same routine
Now that I've seen the tricks up your sleeve
I’m not one for make believe
You use your illusions and hide what’s inside
Save it for someone who buys your love
You’ll always be a joker to me but I’m not laughing anymore

It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt
