"Play someone" in lyrics

warm summer night, eveywhere are chestnut flowers,
I look loud and cheerful people around me,
the children play, someone's hurrying to the home,
it's only me who hide sadeness in my heart.

Nena Ivosevic - As If I Don't Exist Anymore

Sometimes it feels like I've got a war in my mind
I want to get off, but I keep ridin' the ride
I never really noticed that I had to decide
To play someone's game or live my own life
And now I do
I wanna move

Lana Del Rey - Get Free

I can sit here all day, just writing your name
I'll sleep under the rain, you can call me insane
How can a heartbeat be so lost?
I play someone like you all night long
I can sit here all day, just writing your name
I'll sleep under the rain, you can call me insane

Tich - Obsession

You will never be like my music's tune no matter how much I try to play[fn]play here is meant in an artistic sense. To play a violin, a guitar..etc. It doesn't mean to play someone as in to deceive them[/fn] you
And no matter how much my despair reduced my hope, I will still describe you
Go around the world [searching] for someone who needs you in his life as much as I do,
Even if I died each time, one time you will be mine
For the first time I analyse the problem and choose solutions
How would a seed sprout when I have planted it in barren land?

Jaguar (Egypt) - Isabelle

Someone like you is too dangerous
Someone like you is not honest at all
Someone like you is no good for me
Someone like you only wants to play
Someone like you will only lie
Someone like you (yeah), admit it after all

Maite Kelly - It was never so beautiful

Walking all the day, near tall towers where falcons build their nests
Silver winged they fly, they know the call of freedom in their breasts
Soar Black Head against the sky, between the rocks that run down to the sea
Living on your western shore, saw summer sunsets, asked for more
I stood by your Atlantic sea, and sang a song for Ireland

Mary Black - Song for Ireland
