"Losing Grip" as written by Clif Magness and Avril Lavigne....
Are you aware of what
You make me feel, baby
Right now I feel invisible to you
Like I'm not real
Didn't you feel me lock my arms around you
Why'd you turn away
Here's what I have to say

I was left to cry there
Waiting outside there
Grinning with the lost stare
That's when I decided

Why should I care
'Cause you weren't there
When I was scared
I was so alone

You, you need to listen
I'm startin' to trip
I'm losing my grip
And I'm in this thing alone
(oh oh yeah)

Am I just some chick
You placed beside you
To take somebody's place?
When you turn around

Can you recognize my face?
You used to love me
You used to hug me
But that wasn't the case
Everything wasn't ok

I was left to cry there
Waiting outside there
Grinning with a lost stare
That's when I decided

Why should I care
'Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone
You, you need to listen
I'm starting to trip
I'm losing my grip
And I'm in this thing alone

Crying out loud
I'm crying out loud
Crying out loud
I'm crying out loud
Open your eyes
Open up wide

Why should I care
Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone
Why should I care

'Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone
Why should I care
If you don't care then I don't care

We're not going anywhere
Why should I care
'Cause you weren't there when I was scared
I was so alone

Why should I care
If you don't care then I don't care
We're not going anywhere

    General Commentthese lyrics are great.
    i have never actually heard this ladys music before but i really enjoi the lyrics to this song
    i believe its about
    a girl who has been pushed aside and ignored from a boy who is a friend.
    the guy was never there for her but she didnt let him know until it was all over.
    now she is bitter and hurt.
    <3 beautiful.
    should i download it ?hah

    General CommentThis song, to me, is her talking about a relationship she was in that the guy was pretty much never there physically or mentally. He's never there for her so why should she care about him?.....in a nutshell. I'm curious to know why some of you think she's talking about a friend? Not that I disagree....but just curious...

    General Commenteh this song's got alot of meaning to me, since my ex girlfriend honestly sings it to me now. uhm, i guess i can say i'm kind of in the situtation like the song, it's really weird, i'm in love with my best friend and thinking i can get over him, i went out with a friend of mine and i really haven't paid that much attention to her, and she's tried so hard to do everyting she's done, but i don't appreciate it.. yeah very pathetic of me. but yeah, i dunno if that tells the meaning from my point of view but, yeah to me it's basically just what the words mean =\
