set-up lyrics – au pairs

playing your game / your mother subst*tute
she is she / that you never screwed
playing your game / her life revolves round and round you
a total investment / can’t afford to love
you’re the prize for her sacrifice – a kiss in the morning
a kiss late at night
she’s closing her eyes
to those possible lies
keeping the doubts
locked tight up inside
playing your game / she taking care of you
watching out for your head / when you’re sick
she puts you to bed / she props you up
nurses you through / she’s here to look after you
playing your game / with the rules that you’ve set
we’re on either side / am i such a threat
playing your game / taking care of your needs
she is your security / i may remark on your insensitivity
but you know she wouldn’t listen to me
