Game 2 U

Game 2 U

Oh my god, I can't believe I'm actually meeting you in person! I’m your biggest fan. But I don’t blame you for not knowing me—I'm nobody.

Growing up on this isolated farm, all I’m really good at is, I guess, isolating animals from the pack, soothing them enough to approach, then trapping them.

And, when necessary, slaughtering them.

But you’re the one with the real skills—and I know you can sing better than that.

So I’ll let you try again. May I suggest “Is My Love Just a Game 2 U”? A deep cut, but I’ve been a fan forever.
