"The Game" as written by Chris Brown, Simon Ormandy and Peter Charell....
How have you been, nice to see you again
How quickly these conversations seem to end
You meet a friend, every now and then
How quickly these relations turn into trends

Put all your walls up and open your windows
And close all your doors
You catch yourself standing in front of the mirror
And now you need more

What do you wish for
To catch you as you're falling
So easy to ignore
But now you hear it calling again

I wouldn't want to be you
This lonely game that you play
Between your walls you confuse
Every heart that you break
So afraid that you'll lose
Always a void to replace
I wouldn't want to play you

You try and pretend, the truth is hard to bend
How easy these translations can be read
What if you were led to play a different game instead
How hard these frustrations are to mend

Does it matter to you?

Just wait

    General CommentThis has to be my favorite song by Trapt. I love the chorus of the song. I believe the song is about a girl that would jump from guy to guy, not thinking about the importance of relationships. She thinks that love is a game. And the end of the song, "just wait", is saying that one day she'll get her heart played with and broken as if her feelings were a game.

    General CommentI really like how he sings some parts of the song in a very acusing manner. Anyways, I agree and disagree with the above. I think that she wants to stop but she needs the attention of guys so she will date guys she doesn't really like and ends up only dating them for a very short time. It's hard to tell though, some lines make it seem like my version and others make it seem like the first comment's version. Maybe he wrote it for both situations and you can apply it to whatever situation you've been closest to.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about the lonely "game" that people play with only themselves because they're afraid of falling in love and getting deeply hurt and scared

    General CommentI'm sure it actually says

    Me your Friend Every now and then


    You meet a friend, every now and then

    because it makes alot more sense in the first one because she's playing him.

    I think it's about some guy and girl that broke up and the girl won't really talk to him. only now and then and mess with his head, lead him on and then go for some other guy and the pattern repeats itself over and over. Like he's always there to be a rebound.
    Hence the song title, the whole thing is just a game.
