GABRIELLA CILMI | This Game

LYRICS:

Ice cream and jelly beans
Oh no no, ain't what I need
Flowers, a cup of tea
I don't need your sympathy

Listen to what I say
I won't be friendly so you
You better get home tonight oh
Like you won't see me go
Going ashtray
'Cos I don't need ya
And I made up my mind

And this game I snip
Ain't worth the pain
I chip ya oh
And this game I snip
Ain't worth the pain
I chip ya oh

A big screen, my own movie
That don't mean nothing to me
Magazines, kiss on the cheek
Just don't feel sorry for me

Listen to what I say
I won't be friendly so you
You better get home tonight oh
Like you won't see me go
Going ashtray
'Cos I don't need ya
And I made up my mind

And this game I snip
Ain't worth the pain
I chip ya oh
And this game I snip
Ain't worth the pain
I chip ya oh

Time out
You now why you're gonna hang around
I hope ya
Sit down and have to think about
All the ways that you have let me down
And boy scout
Watch me let my hair down
I'm gonna make sounds that never let so loud
And get you back for all that mess around

REVIEWS:
x (...) it's the third track on this single, 'This Game', that really stands out, it's punchy and aggressive. Her attitude on here is way beyond her young years, and it's a joy to listen to. Gabriella Cilmi has a very bright future ahead of her. Tara Cooper

x (...) she continues to impress with the punchier, more rocky This Game, which suggests she's also capable of a great deal of musical versatility. We agree, she's one to watch! IndieLondon

x (...) the brilliantly bolshy This Game; sizzling with Cilmi's whiplash-sharp 60s-styled voice and an excellent, knowing undertone of go-go rhythms. Lee Davis
