Apparently there’s no place on the Internet with decent Peter Donnelly lyrics. Which sucks, especially since his CDs include them in full.

Dangerous Games in particular makes my heart hurt, so I pulled out the lyrics booklet and typed it up.

Dangerous Games

Just a simple man
A simple home, a simple wife
A simple way
And so they say, a simple life
Go to work each day
You walk that line, you walk it straight
You walk it proud
Hold up your head, you do it right
You do it now, and you believe
Yes, you believe

And I,
I’m that dream inside your head
Oh, and I,
I’m the flame of your desire
Yes, and I,
I wanna dance the whole night long
And I too believe, I believe, I believe

You know you want to be free, you want to reach out, but you hold back, you said you would stay
And you will and you know that it’s just a dream…so you dream on anyway
Oh, you want to be free and you want it right now
Oh, I…

The dangerous games that we play
Oh, the dangerous games that we play
Oh, the dangerous games
The dangerous games

You spend too much time
Talking with the secretary
You fantasize
About the boy in the choir
You toss and turn
Oh, you weak up in a sweat
You get too close, you get too close
You get too close

And I,
I’m that dream inside your heart
Oh, and I,
I’m the life that might have been
Yes, and I,
I will stalk you in your sleep
Won’t let you rest, won’t let you be
Won’t set you free, won’t let you be

You know you want to be free but the kids need new shoes and you said you would be there for them
And you are and you know that it’s just a dream, how you wish that these dreams would end
Oh you want to be free and you want it all right now
Oh, I…

The dangerous games that we play
Oh, the dangerous games that we play
Oh, the dangerous games
The dangerous games

And I,
I’m the dream that cannot wait
Oh, and I,
I’m the longing behind your eyes
Yes, and I,
I’m that distance that must be crossed
I can make you whole, can let you live
Can set you free, let you life…say the word!

You know you want to be free, yet you vote for no change, there’s no way except to maintain
They’re just dreams and as dreams they will fade away, how you wish that these dreams would end
Oh you want to be free and you want it all right now
Oh, I…
You never try, oh, you never cry…anymore

The dangerous games that we play
Oh, the dangerous games that we play
Oh, the dangerous games
The dangerous games
