"Playing the Blame Game" as written by Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Matt Barnes, Chris Miller and Dan Flint....
You're not on my list of things to do
'Cause I've already done you
And I'm protective, it's so cute
And only when it suits you
And is this all in vain?
Can these words explain?

Desperate minds mean desperate measures
We've gotta keep this one together
You're young and in love
That should be enough

At least you'll have nice thoughts of me
When I'm cheating on you in your dreams
I told you before, my closet's clean
And that these bones don't belong to me

Try this one for size
Try me one more time
You hold me down by keeping me around

Desperate minds mean desperate measures
We've gotta keep this one together
You're young and in love
That should be enough

Desperate minds mean desperate measures
We've gotta keep this one together
You're young and in love
That should be enough

You hold me down by keeping me around
And no one takes me home
No one takes me home
You hold me down by keeping me around
And no one takes me home
No one takes me home

Desperate minds mean desperate measures
We've gotta keep this one together
You're young and in love
That should be enough

Young and in love (that should be, that should be enough)
Young and in love (that should be, that should be enough)

    General CommentI think that it's more about a couple who are still really into each other but have broken up, maybe because of rumours about the guy cheating, in any sense it seems that they've had their differences, but the girl is keeping him close to her almost as if saying that 'i don't trust you but i love you', either that or a couple that are still together but the girl is keeping him at a distance so that he can't leave and move on and away from her but she's not letting him off the hook so she's almost punishing him for something that he may not have done.
    "You hold me down by keeping me around, and no one takes me home." "We've got to keep this one together, you're young and in love, that should be enough."

    General CommentI am new to YM@6, and they are incredible. Love their style. This song is so, so good. The girl is in the reltionship, and she is in love, but she wants attention from other guys. She loves how protective of her he is, but when he gets mad because she is talking to all of these other guys, she gets mad at him(and I'm protective, it's so cute, only when it suits you). She thinks that he is cheating on her, when, in fact, he isn't(I told you before my closet's clean, and that these bones don't belong to me). Basically he has to always validate himself because her own guilty conscience is getting to her. She thinks that if she's is all over other guys, that he is all over other girls. He thinks she's making a fool of him because he's all in in this relationship, and people see her out with other people. He's kind of just saying, your relationship with me could be really good, straighten up and get it together.

    General CommentIt's about a girl who thinks her boyfriend is cheating on him, but he tries to assure her that he's nto and keeping him close isn't going to prove that he's not cheating
