The Game

You said I blacked out and couldn't catch my breath
I fell out all of my planned out steps
Now I just gotta get it back, gotta get it back before it's gone
Dad said to play it cool, you wanna make 'em sweat

Make the rules, don't ever follow them
Now I just gotta get back, gotta get you back before you're gone
Now when you're counting minutes, set a timer
Avoid combustion or backfire

'Cause you're the only one who picks what happens next
You say you didn't care and I know that it was a lie
'Cause you cared, I think we both really tried
Now we just gotta get it back, gotta get it back before it's gone

And I want you to call, I know you probably won't
Should I call? I had to break my phone
No, I'll never get you back, never get you back before you're gone
And when your heart is beating, pinch your finger

Distract yourself from thoughts that linger
'Cause you're the only one that picks what happens next
And tell me why it has to be so damn complicated
I'm thinking something so why shouldn't I say it?

All these rules seem so fuckin' dated
I'm a hypocrite 'cause, yeah, the game, I play it
Yeah, I play it
I think that you're scared of what it possibly means

That I'm not, what could I have in my sleeve?
But please don't go away, please don't go away
Just come love me
And I know I'm not shy, sometimes that scares people off

But I try to get the things that I want
Please don't go away, please don't go away
Just come love me
And when your feet are tapping, make a milkshake

Give your body somewhat of a break
'Cause you're the only one you need to impress
And tell me why it has to be so damn complicated
I'm thinking something so why shouldn't I say it?

All these rules seem so fuckin' dated
I'm a hypocrite 'cause, yeah, the game, I play it
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I play it
