"Little Games" as written by Adam Castilla, Kollin Johannsen, Maya Tuttle and Justin Wagner....
I saw you messin' around
We were down, the times were rough
But was the light that you found
On the other side enough?

What did I do so wrong?
You lied and led me on
Was I your hit and run?
Left for dead and now you're gone

Oh we were comin' around
You threw me back down
You had my trust in your hands
You gave it up again

We were comin' around
So far from dealin' with all these little games

Holdin' in so much you could drown
When you knew that times were tough
But I've had enough with you down
With your hands facing up

What did I do so wrong?
You lied and led me on
Was I your hit and run?
Left for dead and now you're gone

Oh we were comin' around
You threw me back down
You had my trust in your hands
You gave it up again

We were comin' around
So far from dealin' with all these little games

With all these little games

I feel you far, too far away
Would you need to, need to stay

I'm feeling far away (So far from seeing)
Why would you even stay? (You're so deceiving)
I'm feeling far away (So far from seeing)
Why would you even stay?

Oh we were comin' around
You threw me back down
You had my trust in your hands
You gave it up again

We were comin' around
So far from dealin' with all these little games

Oh we were comin' around
You threw me back down
You had my trust in your hands
You gave it up again

We were comin' around
So far from dealin' with all these little games

With all these little games

    General CommentIt's about cheating. They were having a bad relationship, the girl cheated, now she's back.

    My InterpretationDefinitely about cheating in the first verses with "I saw you messin' around (he say her with someone else) / We were down, the times were rough (they were obviously having difficulties in the relationship) / But was the light that you found / On the other side enough?" (He's asking if the other person she decided to give up everything for was worth ruining the relationship they had).
    In the chorus, he basically asks her what he could possibly have done to warrant her leading him on when things were just starting to get better between them and finishes with that they are "so far from dealing with all these little games" - she is playing mind games with him and toying with his heart.
    "Holding in so much you could drown" to me sounds like she would never speak up about what wasn't working in the relationship, but would rather hold everything back and be discontented while maintaining some type of grudge against him for whatever reason. But he says he's had enough, and later asks why she would even stay if she was so unhappy.
    Great song, under-rated band.
