Russian Roulette



Where is the love?
What should I do about you?
It is not me who did wrong
It was you at the fault
This may be the end of all this
I may lose everything this time
I really can't control myself
Love is a game, right?
I would love to play it
This feels like a Russian Roulette
Well, I would love to play it
Or maybe this is just a dangerous gamble
With me as a bet
Why are you scared?
Isn't that what makes it fun?
I would love to gamble more and more!
You are just too sensitive
That I can't even joke with you
You know me so well
Is that why you control me?
Well, it is okay
'cause I just do the same
Our relationship is just so weird
It is so beautiful
Yet sad
Why would I lie?
I have no reason to lie
Everything is fine between us
Isn't it?
Madness is the essence of gambling
Isn't it?
