"Just a Game" as written by and Jasmine Van Den Bogaerde....
I don't know where I am
I don't know this place
Don't recognize anybody
Just the same old empty face
See these people they lie
And I don't know who to believe anymore

But there comes you to keep me safe from harm
There comes you to take me in your arms

Is it just a game? I don't know
Is it just a game? I don't know

Pleading eyes that break my heart, so hopes that I can feel
But I know I must play my part, and tears I must conceal

There comes you to keep me safe from harm
There comes you to take me in your arms

Is it just a game? I don't know
To keep you safe from my bow

Take my hand and my heart races
The flames illuminate our faces
And we're on fire
Blow a kiss to the crowd
They're our only hope now

And I know my place
And now I know my place
We're all just pieces in their games

    General CommentI feel this song is about a girl who is lost at first and can't find herself. Then along comes this guy into her life, her world. She wants to trust him, believe his intentions are good, but she can't be for sure because she doesnt know his heart. She thinks she is just apart of some game and she is'nt sure she wants to play, but the way he makes her feel is something she enjoys.

    My InterpretationThis song is truly my favorite song on the Hunger Games Soundtrack.

    It truly fits in with what movie is trying to show.
    The song could be about Katniss ans Peeta, or Katniss and Rue.

    Why Katniss and Rue?
    "..but there comes you to keep me safe from harm. There come you to take me in your arms."
    "..just the same old dainty face"
    -Perhaps Rue is speaking to Katniss about how she is scared, not recognizing anyone in the game, but she recognizes her face, realizing Katniss sacrificed herself to save her sister. and for that Rue feels she can trust her?

    Peeta and Katniss?
    "..take my hand and my heart races. The flames illuminate our faces and we're on fire. Blow a kiss to the crowd. They're our only hope now"
    When they make their grand entrance through the crowd, they are onvviously on fire and...yeah-_-
    I don't want to spoil it any more than I already have.


    But yes, this is my interpretation.

    My InterpretationI think It's all about the rich and there games
    MY THOUGHTS
    -The people from the districts thinks they are only pawns in there game.
    -All there speeches are saying "Look how we take your loved one and break and kill them while you watch." How can they not be part of a game
    -WELL, they say it's a game but really it's a bloodbath on the screen.
    -Finally The BIGGEST thing here is saying and I quote "Is it just a game? I don't
    know."-Birdy Shes confused if it's really just a game.
