Billie Piper
Misfocusing

if i was the last person to know
how you cheated me
did you think i could let go
of your betrayal easily
oh no it went deep
i lost a lot of sleep
thinking i had no one to turn to
oh i
oh i
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
how you ever gonna see clearly
are you ever gonna know the real me
i gotta stop the world i gotta stop the world
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
oh i
oh i
oh i
i can't take all the mis quotes and lies
barbed wire bouquets
but you i never thought
would stoop so low
i guess that goes to show
what you just don't know
can really hurt you so
and i'm not sure who to trust anymore
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
are you ever gonna see clearly
how you ever gonna know the real me
i gotta stop the world i gotta stop the world
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
oh i
oh i
oh i
oh i
oh i
oh i
i can't deny it stresses me like no lover ever could
makes me wonder why the world is such a jealous lover
ask me what i have learned
you gotta play the fool to catch the wise
act the mute to hear the lies
what else
what else
what else
and the rest
coming home is always the best
but a smile can hide a deadly weapon
and a friend you thought you could rely on
don't you feel sorry for me baby
don't you feel sorry for me baby
oh i
oh i
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
are you ever gonna see clearly
how you ever gonna know the real me
gotta stop the world
oh i gotta stop the world
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
are you ever gonna see me clearly
how you ever gonna know the real me
i gotta stop the world
i gotta stop the world
gotta stop the world misfocusing on me
oh i
oh i
oh i
oh i oh i
oh

    General Comment This song is so sad. It describes Billie feeling backstabbed by people she trusted, and people around not getting her and pre judging her and not getting to know the real her.

    General CommentThis song is really sad. Billie's speaking back to the media that teared her life apart, the death threats from 5ive fans, and other things. People can't see the real her.
