2 The Name Of The Game

Written by: (B. Andersson / S. Anderson / B. Ulvaeus)

I’ve seen you twice
in a short time
only a week since we started
it seems to me
for every time
I’m getting more openhearted

I was an impossible case
no one ever could reach me
but I think
I can see in your face
there’s a lot you can teach me
so I wanna know

What’s the name of the game
does it mean anything to you
what’s the name of the game
can you feel it the way I do

Tell me please
’cause I have to know
I’m a bashful child
beginning to grow

And you make me talk
and you make me feel
and you make me show
what I’m trying to conceal
if I trust in you
would you let me down
would you laugh at me

If I said I care for you
could you feel the same way too
I wanna know
the name of the game

I have no friends
no one to see
and I am never invited
now I am here
talking to you
no wonder I get excited

Your smile
and the sound of your voice
and the way you
see through me
got a feeling
you give me no choice
but it means a lot to me
so I wanna know

What’s the name of the game
does it mean anything to you
what’s the name of the game
can you feel it the way I do

Tell me please
’cause I have to know
I’m a bashful child
beginning to grow

And you make me talk
and you make me feel
and you make me show
what I’m trying to conceal
if I trust in you
would you let me down
would you laugh at me

If I said I care for you
could you feel the same way too
I wanna know
oh yes I wanna know
the name of the game
