My hands are sweating, my stomach churns
My breathing increases in pace
The insecure feeling returns
I'm in a state that's far from grace
I really shouldn't be so nervous
But I'm running out of time
Why do we do this to ourselves?
Don't think like that, it will be fine

And now I'm standing in the middle of the room
Checking on makeup that we're brainwashed to consume
Remembering those magazines that tell you that your life's a competition
That we're all fighting for someone to fight for

You better watch your back
You're a piece of meat and the dogs want more
It's time to face the fact
That you're a piece of meat and the dogs want more
They're always hungry
Never satisfied
They bite the hand that feeds them
So why do you still provide?

My smile is empty, my voice is sad
Although I wear this mask on my face
Trying to find what I once had
From opportunities I embrace
I really shouldn't be so upset
But I'm running out of time,
Excuses, hope,
My love and trust

And now I'm standing in the middle of the room
Checking on makeup that we're brainwashed to consume
Remembering those magazines that tell you that your life's a competition
That we're all fighting for someone to fight for

You better watch your back
You're a piece of meat and the dogs want more
It's time to face the fact
That you're a piece of meat and the dogs want more
They're always hungry
Never satisfied
They bite the hand that feeds them
So why do you still provide?

Standing here waiting
Expecting prince charming
To hold me, explaining
That I'm the only one for him
Standing here waiting
Expecting prince charming
But he's never coming
You told me he existed but you lied
Next time don't get my hopes up
I'd rather know the truth

You better watch your back
You're a piece of meat and the dogs want more
It's time to face the fact
That you're a piece of meat and the dogs want more
They're always hungry
Never satisfied
They bite the hand that feeds them
So why do you still provide?
Why do you still provide?
Wrote this within a few nights.

I know a few people that think that they absolutely must date someone otherwise they're nothing. People that date people simply for the sake of being with someone, not because they like them. And this in turn ends in catastrophe, because if you're dating someone just because there's no one else around at the time, then the relationship is going to be unhealthy.
A lot of the guys I know date people for this reason; simply because they can brag to their friends about it, quench their sexual thirsts, or usually both. And because the relationship is built on weak foundations in the first place, they end up getting bored quickly and moving on to someone else without considering the consequences.
I don't mean for these lyrics to offend anyone - I'm not assuming that 'all guys are the same' or anything stereotypical like that. And I know for a fact that a lot of girls do the same thing. These lyrics are generally just about a lot of people that I know personally.

I really really love this song. I think it's amazing. I've always wanted a boyfriend and I kinda feel messed if I'm single, but when I read this I realized it has to be for the right reasons. It can't just be because I want someone to love me. I need to love myself first and then share my life. thanks for the reminder.

I'm not like that. It's sad when people are like that. They should be satisfied with being single if that's what God has for them.

I agree, I think it's better to not be with anyone rather than be with the wrong person.

you're welcome :)

Do you? I get that... but then I realise I'm not really musically talented when I hum it and it turns out to be a song I heard recently... heh, that's me.

If you put it on youtube or something, send me the link :) I'd love to hear it!

Aww haha, I hate when that happens, when you think 'hey, that's a good tune!' then realise it's from someone else's song :XD:

Aww, I'm flattered :aww: I definitely will do if I manage to finish it :XD:

This was really good! c: I know lots of people like this as well, which is just terrible :/ But I really like the lines you used. One of my favourites is the "You're a piece of meat and the dogs want more." I really like that one :)

At first I thought you meant you know lots of people that like these lyrics and that is terrible, so I got confused :XD:
Thanks, I'm glad :)

I love that quote it is going on a piece of paper on my bedroom wall (is thats okay with you)
hahah I just give up. I'm usually like Meh if you don't wanna listen to me don't think I'll be that sympathetic when it doesn't work out. bitchy I know but I get sick of people that don't learn.

Haha of course it's okay with me :)
It's not bitchy, it's understandable. I'm like that nowadays too, I used to try to please everyone but then a lot of shit happened to me and I got hurt even after doing my best not to hurt anyone, so I gave up >_<
