"Playing with Fire" as written by and James Keogh....
I'm done, I'm done, I don't care how you feel
I'm done, I'm done for now
And I see, I see with every glance that I steal
I'm done, I'm done for now
You say you're used to playin with fire
You say you're heart is on your sleeve
You say you're sometimes sentimental
Well that ain't showin through to me

And I see, I see that I could do no wrong
In my old mans eyes
And I swear, I swear that I would try it on
Before the day I die

You say you're used to playin with fire
You say you're heart is on your sleeve
You say you're sometimes sentimental
Well that ain't showin through to me

And I guess I knew it
This whole time
But these old feelings
They make me blind

You say you're used to playin with fire
You say you're heart is on your sleeve
You say you're sometimes sentimental
Well that ain't showin through to me
You say you're used to playin with fire
You say you're heart is on your sleeve
You say you're sometimes sentimental
Well that ain't showin through to me

    General CommentThis song is about Moving on from a girl that he once thought was interested in him, but he realized finally that the girl never really liked him like that. So, he then says in the song that he "is done" and he says "I dont care how you feel" trying to move on. But then towards the end he mentions: "but these old feelings" he remembers the time when he was with her, how special she made him feel, and how it "made him blind" meaning that he thought he liked him all along, but sadly, she only really thought of him as a friend. Truly beautiful and very well written song by Vance Joy
