Lyrics

[Chorus: Anne-Marie]

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1: KSI]

All that time on your own with me

We had fun on the 360

I helped you get a UAV

Still could never get you that AC

Sneakin' in school just to get by you

I'm obsessed with the scent on you

Coco Chanel on your neck with your body in check

Lovin' all the time with you

[Pre-Chorus: KSI]

But now you've just gone missin'

You're airin' all my wishes

You're online, but still won't listen

My time is you dismissin'

This is in no way a two-way street

I'm playin' "SAD!" and it's on repeat

Got me here hopin' you see my Snap

'Cause I'm not ready for us to wrap, no, woah

[Chorus: Anne-Marie]

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah

Don't play games (don't play games)

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee (with my heart)

Now the feels hit me differently (differently, differently)

When they hittin' this deep, don't play (don't play)

Don't play, yeah, yeah

[Verse 2: Anne-Marie]

All the things you doin'

Yeah, I think I've seen it all before

Seen it, seen it all before, ah

Everything you're sayin'

Yeah, I think I've heard it all before

Yeah, heard it all before

If you don't give me your time

Then I ain't givin' you mine, huh

If you're gonna lie

Then I'ma say goodbye

Every game you're playin'

Yeah, boy, I've played them all before

And I win them all

[Pre-Chorus: KSI, with Anne-Marie]

'Cause now you've just gone missin'

You're airin' all my wishes

You're online, but still won't listen

My time is you dismissin'

This is in no way a two-way street

I'm playin' "SAD!" and it's on repeat

Got me here hopin' you see my Snap

'Cause I'm not ready for us to wrap, no, woah

[Chorus: Anne-Marie]

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah (oh, yeah, yeah)

Don't play games (don't play games)

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently (differently)

When they hittin' this deep, don't play (yeah, yeah)

Don't play, yeah, yeah

[Outro: Anne-Marie]

Play, yeah

Yeah, yeah

Play, yeah

Play, yeah, yeah

Play, yeah

Yeah, yeah

Play, yeah

Play, yeah, yeah

Acoustic

[Chorus: Anne-Marie]

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1: KSI]

Nah, I'm sick of this

Nah, this time I'm leavin' this

Life's too short to be hangin' on all of your words in the hope that we go back to you and me ever believing this

An imposter among us

You need me then lie that we're lovers

You need me to hype up your summers

And I need you here with me

[Pre-Chorus: KSI, with *Anne-Marie*]

But now you've just gone missin'

You're airin' all my wishes

You're online, but still won't listen

My time is you dismissin'

This is in no way a *two-way street*

I'm playin' sad and it's *on repeat*

Got me here hopin' you *see my Snap*

[Chorus: Anne-Marie]

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah

[Verse 2: Anne Marie, with *KSI*]

All the things you doin', yeah

I think I've *seen it all before*, yeah

*Seen it, seen it all before*, ah

Everything you're sayin'

Yeah, I think I've *heard it all before*

Yeah, I’ve *heard it all before*

If you don't give me your time

Then I ain't givin' you mine, huh

If you're gonna lie

Then I'ma say "goodbye"

Every game you're playin'

Yeah, boy, I've *played them all before*

And I win 'em all

[Pre-Chorus: KSI with, *Anne-Marie*]

'Cause now you've just *gone missin'*

You're airin' *all my wishes*

You're online, but *still won't listen*

My time is you dismissin'

Got me here hopin' you *see my Snap*

'Cause I'm not ready for us to wrap, no, nah

[Chorus: Anne-Marie]

Don't play games

Don't play games with my heart, ooh-wee

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play (ah)

Don't play, yeah, yeah (ah)

Don't play games with my heart

Now the feels hit me differently

When they hittin' this deep, don't play

Don't play, yeah, yeah
