Vance Joy - Play With Fire Lyrics




I am done, I am done,
I don't care how you feel
I am done, I am done for now
And I see, I see with every glance I steal
I am done, I am done for now

You say you're used to playin' with fire
You say your 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 man's eyes
And I swear, I swear that I would try it all
Before the day I die

You say you're used to playin' with fire
You say your 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
Have made me blind

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

    the drama! Skinny jeans cheater! A flying vinyl! Disgruntled cheated gf in a Bowie tshirt! Red MG! Gas station girl! Stalking ex gif in a pickup truck! Breakdown! Beach party! Hallucinations! Friends come to rescue! Wake up at the beach completely disoriented!

  3. Mitchell Bolaños

    Muy inspirador

    Y te llena de esa buena energía

  4. Tony Brisson

    life goes on huh

  12. torns torns

    This song stuck in my mind , I love it ;)

  13. Jon Bielby

    I thought this guy was actually Vance Joy for ages

  14. Esin Günaydın

    It ain't available on Apple Music in my country what a chance lol🙄

  15. Raiden

    A more underrated song of his, but probably my favorite.

  16. Hontree

    This song actually reminds me of my father and our relationship. We were never really close at all, and it's become more evident every day just how different our core beliefs seem to be. Especially last fall, the way he reacted to some things just absolutely rubbed me the wrong way. I have not returned his attempts to remain in contact since. I really like Vance Joy because his voice and the music reminds me of home. Not the home that I grew up to know, but the new kind of home that I am trying to establish for myself. I'm actually puzzled with how I could feel nostalgic when I listen to Vance (albeit he is not the first artist to make me feel this way) because I don't remember feeling this free.

  17. Jen Rodriguez

    OMG I was doing exactly this last year when I got my heart broken.. This story is accurate

  18. cgpriceisright -

    I love this video. Especially the end where he's hesitant/shy about joining the group and is brought it. Such simple yet powerful imagery. Great song, as well

  25. sarah dalto

    one of my fav songs by him

  26. redstoneagle1

  28. brebytheway

    1:39 lol me all the time because Vance Joy's music is perfect for singing at the top of your lungs to when something's happened and you're sad

  29. Civilized Savage

    Anyone realize they are some where in Europe?

  30. Killmeplease

    Im mildly attracted to this man in a no homo my bromo™ kind of way

    brebytheway

    tbh, he's amazing in this like he just shows so much emotion throughout the whole video

  31. TheOriginalMakaaka

  34. A Potato

    i love how at 2:48 he goes through the stages of grief (denial, depression. bargaining, anger, and acceptance)

  35. Tyler Hart

    Such a powerful video, song, and experience.

  36. Gabe Brown

    he went through the five stages of grief, on the side of the road, so fast

  37. Mister Messenger

    For some reason the actor reminds me of Alex Hirsch-

    brebytheway

    haha, true, he has like the same hair and beard

  38. Alex Vause

    This song is amazing

  39. Sofia Perez

    2:54 when I see the grades in my report card...

    I guess everyone will come to a stage of being a miserable basterd and can't get over something for the rest of their lives.

    gostaria muito das principais canções de vance Joy com versões legendadas em português pois só tem em espanhol...

  47. Logan Mazzuchelli

    This song isn't about him messing up, this song is about her messing up constantly and him finally leaving. Even though he misses her he knows he cant go back for the fear of her faults never ending.

    Jon Bielby

  68. SuperMaxryder

    He had to sabotage his relationship so he could grow! Better Together! Love Trumps Hate!

  69. Lazy

    Well he clearly fucked up at some point

    Chelsea Senter

    First, I believe a feminist is someone similar to the people of the black lives matter movement; we want equality for everyone, but it's clear that there's inequality so the movement is labeled as what needs to improve (equality of women and black people, respectively). I know it's easy to label women who get frustrated and angry as crazy bitches or, as you put it +Krazy Killer, "I'm detecting a feminist". However, that's some old world shit, similar to the whole "hysteria" movement where women who were deemed "emotional and crazy" were put in insane asylums or went to the doctor to literally get "jilled off" with a vibrator (wouldn't you know we just needed one at home...). Anyways, that's what the movement is for anyways, right? I'm waiting patiently for change and I understand where your frustrations come from. Second, +Linda Webber I know it's upsetting to hear and see comments that seem to generalize a population in a negative view (especially when it's targeting a population you fit into), however you won't get any social justice on here (tumblr is an example of such). In my opinion, it's better to try to understand where other people are coming from, accept their point of view (not the same as agreeing with it), laugh at the comment's superficiality... and move on with your life. Don't let the negativity rule your world. Third, +Yakov Wilhelm DID say "most". In your sentence, +Linda Webber, you stated, "... but don't target all the women. "Most women are cheating whores". Ok, so I get to say all men are weak and obsessive?" The hole in your argument is you're assuming "most" and "all" are synonymous. They're not. All is 100%, most is >50%. So, "more than half the population of women are cheating whores" is really what he's saying. I don't agree with his statement necessarily, but I can see why he'd take that stance. Love is a complicated and a hard thing to understand. We often get hurt from people who are selfish (or at least unknowingly so) which causes us to want to close up. When we experience that over and over again, we become cynical and pessimistic about people and life. This video is a wonderful representation of healing after a break up. Vance Joy is expressing his pain, frustration and enlightenment of the relationship. He realizes now that's she says she's open, understanding, etc, but she's actually a fucking liar. Those moments are painful initially, but liberating and such an important aspect of moving on. That's what I love about it. And you know what? We all fucking do it, men and women alike (including all those in between). To project onto someone else anger and blame is to say, "I'm angry, hurt, sad, etc. about life and it's YOUR fault." You have control over your emotions, no one on here does. So maybe this is a good time for reflection, or to blame me for your reaction to however this is making you feel. Either way, love is more powerful than hate, it's just harder to be vulnerable so we decide to go the easier route. Everyone have a great day and be kind to each other.

    Dylan Baker

    no because you are saying all men are weak and obsessive, feminist

    Victor Cruz

    No one is going to read all that shit lmao, you failed.

    tr h

    Wanderer who are you talking about? Also, did you really need to say that without targeting anybody? Second also, did you REALLY need to say that because, well geez, that line of speech wants anybody to get therapy because youd have to imagine that, ugh.

  70. John Doe

    Sometimes, songs are great for the layers of complexity. Sometimes, they're great for the exact opposite reason.

  71. Clare Thompson

    This is my favourite song❤️

  72. LockedDesires #8791

    its sad :(

  73. Bi Erasq

    It says try new things without her without thinking about her. Dont get over think of all it. You can be happy in different ways. 2016 sorry for my english

  74. Zzz_Windy

    i know right

  75. Giovanni Moroyoqui

    this song makes me cry

  76. Tanya Lopez

    I am done, I am done,
    I don't care how you feel
    I am done, I am done for now
    And I see, I see with every glance I steal
    I am done, I am done for now

    You say you're used to playin' with fire
    You say your 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 man's eyes
    And I swear, I swear that I would try it all
    Before the day I die

    You say you're used to playin' with fire
    You say your 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
    Have made me blind

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

    Georgina Barroso

    Someone running?

  82. Links234

    This song made me think about my personnal stuff. This guy has all his life in a suitcase. I'm only 22 years old and I have too much stuff that I care about. I think I need to be more free from objects and stuff, and be more free. I need to stop carring about the sentimental bond that I have with some objects, and lower this dependence.
    This song literally changed my perception of life, and the perception of myself in this world.

    Dazzle

    I like stuff

    MrWolfSnack

    No. You need to live whatever you want to be like. Not what you see on TV. Do what YOU want, not what you're told. I'm 24 and have an entire 2 car garage full of collections and you don't see me crying about it. Because I am happy, and enjoy my hobbies.

    Zoe Jane

    +Jake McCarty deep.

    Noel127

    He refused to write a song about her, play with her hair at night, forgot to rub her back and refused to rub her feet. I'm just guessing a few things out of the billion reasons women like to get mad.

    xD0_xis

    amx adx probably didn't do the dishes

    Nobody that you know

    I think that she cheated and he got really mad so she freaked out and kicked out
