MESS AROUND (I DON’T WANNA)

I am still standing here, baby,
waiting for you to show your face.
This crown ain’t my kind of people,
this bar isn’t my kind of place.
One minute I’m sure you love me,
the next minute you walk away.
I’ll drink my drink,
but dear, don’t think this is the way it’s gonna stay.

Cause I hear the music, and I see the lights
and I dream about you through all my nights
and my hopes are reaching the highest heights
because you keep me wanting more.
But if this is all just a big charade
and I’m just another clown in your big parade
then you better clean up this mess you’ve made
cause I’m walking out that door.

I don’t wanna mess around with you, baby.
I don’t want to run around, up and down, lost and found anymore.
I don’t wanna mess around with you, baby.
I just want to be with you, or I’m gone.

I knew from the moment I saw you
that you were the one for me
but I learned the hard way, baby,
playing games isn’t my cup of tea.
Hide and seek, twenty questions,
cat and mouse, truth or dare…
I am done having all your fun;
tell me if you really care.

Cause I hear the music, and I see the lights
and I dream about you through all my nights
and my hopes are reaching the highest heights
because you keep me wanting more.
But if this is all just a big charade
and I’m just another clown in your big parade
then you better clean up this mess you’ve made
cause I’m walking out that door.

I don’t wanna mess around with you, baby.
I don’t want to run around, up and down, lost and found anymore.
I don’t wanna mess around with you, baby.
I just want to be with you, or I’m gone.
