Music Monday: Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game

August 3rd, 2009 · No Comments

As I noted in an earlier post, Chris Isaak is going to be performing live at the Community Theatre (also known as the Mayo Center of the Performing Arts) in Morristown, NJ, on Monday, August 3rd. I’ve always enjoyed his eerie sound, reminiscent of David Lynch and the 80s TV series, Twin Peaks. In fact, Wicked Game was released as a single in 1989 but did not become a hit until it was featured in the David Lynch film, Wild at Heart in 1991.

The world was on fire
No one could save me but you.
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you

No, I don’t want to fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
No, I don’t want to fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
With you
With you

What a wicked game you play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say
You never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do
To make me dream of you
v And I don’t wanna fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
And I don’t want to fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]

{World was on fire
No one could save me but you
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I’d love somebody like you
I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you

No I don’t wanna fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart
No I don’t wanna fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
With you
With you

Nobody loves no one
