Lyrics:

Though it's forbidden for my arms to hold you
And though it's forbidden, my tears must have told you
That I hold you secretly each time we meet
In these forbidden games that I play

Though it's forbidden in dim, quiet places
To capture the rainbows my aching heart chases
My bittersweet esctasies come to me
In these forbidden games that I play

Everyone knows you belong to another
Spinning your magic for her and no other
Still, I've been content to be part of this fantasy
Part of this game that I play

Though it's forbidden and you'll love me never
I'll keep my love hidden and love you forever
Through countless eternities you will be mine
In these forbidden games that I play

Everyone knows you belong to another
Spinning your magic for her and no other
Still, I've been content to be part of this fantasy
Part of this game that I play

Though it's forbidden and you'll love me never
I'll keep my love hidden and love you forever
Through countless eternities you will be mine
In these forbidden games that I play
In these forbidden games that I play
In these forbidden games that I play
