Wait for me I'll understand
I just need time to comprehend your changes
There's always been these changes in you
I remember that there was a time when
Fears we had we left behind and we danced
But it seems the more we learn
We learn that it's

Over, Over
It's dangerous this game we play
You're killing me with words

Forget if you can
The way you moved when our hands touched
You forced me to force you
Do you remember the dreams,
the nightmares we shared?
The poison of love so pure it's deceiving
And deceit is all we have it's got to be over

Over, Over
It's dangerous this game we play
You're killing me with words
Over, Over
Too late to take a chance again it's over

    General CommentThis might be the sexiest song Queensryche has ever done, with Geoff's voice and the lyrics combined, also the vampiric sounds in the music.

    "you forced me to force you" is a great concept.

    "the nightmares we shared, the poison of love so pure it's deceiving".

    It sounds like the inevitable end of a dysfunctional but addictive relationship. I had one of those.

    General CommentI like the verses, but the chorus is a bit bland.

    General CommentEh, this one's obviously about a relationship damaged beyond repair. Ice, old chap, you forgot to include the last little bit of the lyrics:

    Now the wireless in my hand is ringing
    The distance of our lives keeps spreading
    The pounding I hear, my heart I'm not listening
    Your voice from far away screaming, "IT"S OVER"
