Lyrics

You can have anything [John]
Anything they say [John]
A million sweet temptations [John]
A billion times a day [John]

Pale imitations [Robbie]
Is all I got [Robbie]
I want it all [Robbie]
And you've got the lot [Robbie]

I don't wanna hurt you ain't that what the players say? [Robbie]
While they seal your fate [Robbie]
And lie right to your face [Robbie]

I don't wanna hurt you 'cause I recognise the truth [Robbie]
That you cannot be replaced [Robbie]
So I'm just not going to [Robbie]

So you've chosen me [John]
And honoured me with your love [John]
You showed me a world [John]
And what it could be made of [John]

Thought you were crazy [John]
To put your trust in me [John]
Cos I doubted myself [John]
From the beginning so completely [John]

I don't wanna hurt you ain't that what the players say [John]
While they seal your fate [John]
And lie right to your face [John]

I don't wanna hurt you 'cause I recognise the truth [John]
You cannot be replaced [John]
So I'm just not going to [John]

I don't wanna hurt you ain't that what the players say [Robbie & John]
While they seal your fate [Robbie & John]
And lie right to your face [Robbie & John]

I don't wanna hurt you 'cause I recognise the truth [Robbie & John]
You cannot be replaced [Robbie & John]
So I'm just not going to [Robbie & John]
