"Sinking In" as written by Graham Patrick Kearns, Cheryl Parker and Lucie Silvas....
It's like a playground
Sinking in, we're a couple of kids
Exchanging grins, your attention seems to be on me
Or at least that's what I'm imagining

You got me chasing a tail, got me singing your tune
And I'm over the moon, I'm smiling on the inside
Acting like a fool

I'm starting to wise up
I can't pretend that what you're giving me, giving me is enough

I have been waiting, been waiting
Cause you know how I feel about you
This is a game that you're playing and I'm not going to lose
I have been trying, been trying
For more than a one way thing
But after all this time you're still not mine and it's finally sinking in
Sinking in

I gave it my best shot, for the right man
I got the wrong idea cause I'm not really part of your plan
So what am I still doing here?

It's not like a playground, we're not a couple of kids
All of this is supposed to bring me happiness
Well that's not what this is

I'm starting to wake up
I can't pretend that what you're giving me, giving me is enough

I have been waiting, been waiting
Cause you know how I feel about you
This is a game that you're playing and I'm not going to lose
I have been trying, been trying
For more than a one way thing
But after all this time you're still not mine and it's finally sinking in
Sinking in

The only way to win, is not to play
So I'll just slip away
I bet you don't even notice anyway

I have been waiting, been waiting
Cause you know how I feel about you
This is a game that you're playing and I'm not going to lose
I have been trying, been trying
For more than a one way thing
But after all this time you're still not mine and it's finally sinking in
Sinking in

    General CommentI love this song! It's so catchy, but you're right kahree, not exactly a happy song! The guy is playing games, which hurts her because she genuinely likes him. At first she believes he really does like her and it really conveys that excitement when you're flirting with someone and they seem to feel the same, but after a while nothing actually happens and it dawns on you they are messing you about. They aren't going to change their mind and fall for you so the only way you can 'win' is by forgetting about it and walking away from them, which is hard when someone's messing with your head. It's happened to me before: the giddy excitement and happiness followed by the bitter disappointment that nothing is actually going to happen and they don't care about you at all :(
