Playin' by the Rules Lyrics

Playin' By The Rules (LP版) - Michael Mcdonald

Who are you

Are you someone that I knew

 

Or did you come and go inside a dream

 

Well you look the same

 

Even though you say you've changed

 

You can't hide the shame of a guilty heart

 

Well I know there's a reason

 

Love don't always rhyme

 

So you think by leavin'

 

You're not wasting precious time

 

Love's not always happiness

 

Sad but it's true girl

 

Every fool's got to learn

He's got nothing to lose

 

Playin' by the rules

 

What's your plan

 

Will you try just one more man

 

And trade a thrill that's gone

For a brand new start

 

Will you love him only

 

Until you leave him lonely

 

When he tries to change and

Tame your restless heart

 

I know there's a reason

 

Love don't always rhyme

 

So you think by leavin'

 

You're not wasting precious time

 

Love's not always happiness

 

Sad but it's true girl

 

Every fool's got to learn

He's got nothing to lose

 

Playin' by the rules

 

When are you gonna learn

 

That a love is earned

 

Sometimes you got to fight

 

But oh baby-that's all right

 

I know there's a reason

 

Love don't always rhyme

 

So you think by leavin'

 

You're not wasting precious time

 

Love's not always happiness

 

Sad but it's true girl

 

Every fool's got to learn

He's got nothing to lose
