Won't open my mouth
You know what I'll say
It hurts me that it's gotta be this way
I can no longer hide
God knows I've tried
I held on as long as I could
If I could change it I would
This is the way I am
And this is what I do.

I cry my tears
But they're not for you
Playing a game
I know you've done too
I shouldn't have waited
But still it's all the same
Cause you know
I'm just playing my game.

Close your ears if you don't like the sound of my voice
You're acting like I
Like I had a choice
But to leave you behind well,
I've made up my mind.

I cry my tears
But they not for you
Playing a game
I know you've done too
I shouldn't have waited,
But still it is all the same
Because you know,
I'm just playing my game.

Don't hold me with your eyes
The light in them I cannot see,
No need to blind me
There's this darkness where I walk
You thought you had your future
All figured out.

I cry my tears
But they're not for you
Playing a game
I know you've done too
I shouldn't have waited,
But still it is all the same
Cause you know,
I'm just playing my game,
I'm playing my game.

    General Commentisl ike someone who played her feelings, who fooled her and "used her", someone that was all "friends" with her when needed but she needed him/her to listen him/her wouldn't care, right now i think i would dedicated it to my (ex)best almost bother friend, who told my secrets, and hurted me deeply on the place where i'm more weak...
    LOVE YA(the one reading)

    General CommentYeah. I think it relates quite closely to a broken friendship too... But I think she's also ashamed of something she's done... but something she can't help. "Don't hold me with your eyes, the light in them i cannot see, no need to blind me" - she feels guilty for something she's done, but is trying to leave and move on. But before she goes, she's trying to explain.
