Game Theory Sound

© 2015 Aaron Traffas (BMI) and Lucas Maddy

Look at me play these chords conjured up the night before
I couldn’t sleep so I wrote them down, like I had something to answer for
A commodity song about an average girl, but with these words I implore
Look at me play these chords conjured up the night before

Look at me hold this door, strong and firm like a secret handshake
Pray you notice me; not how my nervous hands can shake
Because inside I’m insecure, wound up so tight I ache
Look at me hold this door, strong and firm like a secret handshake

When I close my eyes I run it through my mind
How I’m going to act; what I’m going to say
My game theory sound, each scenario planned
But it never happens that way
No it never happens that way

Look at me hold your gaze like a fish caught on my hook
Hope I never have to throw it back, never drop it back in the brook
The nights I stay awake hoping at me you’d only look
Look at me hold your gaze like a fish caught on my hook

There’s a hole in the wall shaped just like me
When I learn where you are or hear where you’ll be
I cannot fast enough follow when you leave
But if you turn around I cannot speak
Not a single word can I speak

Look at me wish you could see me the way I want you to
Standing strong, insecurities gone, a vision in your view
But if I can’t turn your gaze to me at all, what can I do
Look at me wish you could see me the way I want you to
