about

A favourite of the band, The Rules. What is love, that strange thing that lift us up an sometimes hurts. I don't know and the protagonist of this song doesn't know either. So he wants the rules explained again and again...

This song was covered by Mathilde Santink in 2006 on her album "Under your charms".

lyrics

The rules

Can't stare it in the face
Won't find it in one place
Trace it if I could, but it won't be understood

Who is in control
Will I ever bare that soul
It plays a trick on me and it seems to fool us all

Wish that you and I were lovers
but I don’t know the game
Please can I have the rules explained again

Some say its in the stars
But I bet for the moon
The answers ain’t that far, but it won’t be found too soon

It’s playing with my heart
It’s passion pulls the pain
Intending to outsmart, but I end up in refrain

Wish that you and I were lovers
but I don’t know the game
Please can I have the rules explained again
