Verse
We're not playing cards.
We're not playing chess.
Your stupid damn games.
Have caused this mess.
Pre Chorus
There's no winner just losers
When lovers keep score.
If you keep picking battles.
There's bound to be war.
Chorus
I'm tired of deceit.
This is insane.
I'm done with playing.
Love is no game.
Verse
We're not tossing dice.
Not spinning a wheel.
This isn't play time.
This is the real deal.
Pre Chorus
There's no winner just losers.
When lovers keep score.
If you keep picking battles.
There's bound to be war.
Chorus
I'm tired of deceit.
This is insane.
I'm done with playing.
Love is no game.
Bridge
We're in this together.
We're on the same side.
We need one another
If we're to survive.

Intro: 4 bars (key of D)

We're not playing chess.
Those stupid damn games.
They have caused this mess.

There's no winner just losers
When lovers keep score.
If you keep picking battles.
There's bound to be war.

Love is no game. I'm tired of deceit.
Love is no game. This is insane.
Love is no game. I'm done with playing.
Love is no game. Love is no game.

Not spinning a wheel.
This is not play time.
This is the real deal.

There's no winner just losers.
When lovers keep score.
If you keep picking battles.

Love is no game. I'm tired of deceit.
Love is no game. This is insane.
Love is no game. I'm done with playing.
Love is no game. Love is no game.

We're in this together.
We're on the same side.
We need one another
If we're to survive.

Love is no game. I'm tired of deceit.
Love is no game. This is insane.
Love is no game. I'm done with playing.
Love is no game. Love is no game.

Love is no game.

Has a nice meter and does a good job of getting the idea across.

I'd prefer if both the prechorus and chorus weren't both just a repeat.
Think it might work to try changing the just second two lines of the prechorus the second time around.
