The Game

Mathew Sydney © 2009

 

I was dancing; you came up to me; our hips were moving in time

It was heaven just to hold you; I didn't want to scare you away

 

So I, I whispered to you, "Baby, you're free; I'll never stand in your way"

But you, you just danced away; checking your phone, lost in the game

 

I was singing; you made a request; I only sing that number for you

That one's our song; you should know that; don't you know that I mean every word?

 

And I, I was trying to say, "Baby, I love you; no, no, no, don't turn away!"

But you, you were looking away, checking your phone, lost in the game

 

I was crying back when we met; I didn't want to get hurt again

You burned brighter, you flew higher than any other man that I've had

 

And you, you really believed in all that I am; you just wanted my love

But I, I pushed you away, checking my phone, lost in the game

 

But I, I pushed you away

(you keep playing the game)

Checking my phone, lost in the game

(I was playing it too)

But I, I pushed you away

(you keep playing the game)

Checking my phone

(I was playing it too)

Lost in the game

 

You keep on playing it

You keep on playing it

You keep on playing the game
