Playing With Numbers Lyrics – Molly Sterling (Ireland)

Eurosong 2015 – the Irish national selection for Eurovision – will take place on 27 February. Among the hopefuls is Molly Sterling with her ballad “Playing With Numbers”. In our Wiwi Jury, we questioned whether such a mature song about complex relationships is suitable for a sixteen year old singer. However, we also drew comparisons with The Common Linnets and complemented its subtleties. Do you agree with us? Read the lyrics below and let us know.

Playing With Numbers Lyrics – Molly Sterling

Do I owe you something?
I think I do
They tied our hands
But I cut through

In the arms of the potion
They found a truth
And I made a pearl
Abandoned you

And I made the mess in your vision
And I see a debt to be paid
To give a little love was all I wanted
Give a little love was all my intent

And I was playing with numbers
And I didn’t know what it meant

Please don’t remind me
I won’t be your muse
Fragile misguided minds like mine
Only know how to use

Oh, while I played with white lies and fiction
Unbeknownst to you
I played the victim
Well that was the last time I pierce you

And I made the mess in your vision
And I see a debt to be paid
To give a little love was all I wanted
Give a little love was all my intent

And I was playing with numbers
And I didn’t know what it meant

I can watch from afar, from my awe to my own
All along I was lost, I was worth, this is wrong
I can’t force this, just watch as the surface surrenders it all

I made the mess in your vision
And I see a debt to be paid
To give a little love was all I wanted
Give a little love was all my intent

I was playing with numbers
And I didn’t know what it meant
