Wicked Game
HIM Lyrics


The world was on fire, no-one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd need somebody like you
And I'd never dreamed that I'd need somebody like you

No I don't want to fall in love
This world is always gonna brake your heart
No I don't want to fall in love
This world is always gonna brake your heart,
with you

What a wicked game to 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 you do
To make me dream of you

No I don't want to fall in love
This world is always gonna brake your heart
No I don't want to fall in love
This world is always gonna brake your heart,
with you

The world was on fire, no-one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
No and I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'll never dream that I lose somebody like you, no

Now I want to fall in love
This world is always gonna brake your heart
Now I want to fall in lust
This world is always gonna brake your heart,
with you

Nobody loves no-one

The world was on fire
No one could save me but you
It's strange what desire
Will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
No I don't want to fall in love
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
And I don't want to fall in love
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
What a wicked game to 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
And I don't want to fall in love
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I don't want to fall in love
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you
The world was on fire
No one could save me but you
It's strange what desire
Will make foolish people do
No I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
And I never dreamed
That I'd lose somebody like you
No I don't want to fall in love
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I don't want to fall in love
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
Nobody loves no one

This is the best version of HIM's cover, imo. There's two others, all the same song but differing productions. As far as sound quality and Ville's performance, this one is superior for me

@Joshua Romo it is. They only ever recorded two versions (not including the early demo). But this is remixed a bit.
The original version from GLS666 is grittier as the guitar tracks are all palm muted and with heavy down strokes - plus just a stereo mix. This has the palmed muted guitars also, but with additional open guitars overlayed so it sounds fuller right from the intro.
Both versions are good. I slightly prefer this one because of those open guitars and it sounding more full right off the bat. But the solo in the original is better I think.

Is this the version from Razorblade Romance? If it is, it's my favorite too. I"ve only heard two of the versions, this and one other.

My (late) Grandmother loved the original. I played this cover while she was in hospice and it brought a smile to her face, the day before she passed. The fact that they had to re-record this because of its likeness to the original shows some modicum of talent. Most covers are done in the artists own likeness, this comes off as a tribute to the original, and if you know HIM it is almost a telling of their music.

I hope youʻre telling the truth, because that is one great story. Love to Gramma <3 .... and your assessment of this performance is spot on, imo.

This is the version I need on Spotify

Ryan Esposito

It fucking kills me that HIM's Spotify discography in the US region is so lacking.
