"Following" as written by and Michael Susan Steele....
You think I'm crazy or something
Always following you around
You say I'm a hopeless case
Run an obsession into the ground

You call me a loser
You call me a shadowing fool
Look over your shoulder
And you say I'm haunting you

So why do you call me
Why do you look for me
Why do your eyes follow me the way they do
You hold me responsible

Yeah, so I stand accused
Of causing all the trouble
After high school
(Between him and you)

You call me a loser
You call me a shadowing fool
But I was a good girl
Yeah, 'till you taught me

What it means to be true
Why do you call me
I know you look for me
Why do your eyes follow me the way they do

    General CommentAt first this always seemed to me to be a total stalker song.

    But I think its more about him stalking her, but making it look like the other way around. She got between him and a friend of his and now he pretends like he hates her, but he's still following her and calling her.

    General CommentI think its a totally great song, underrated. In fact the entire album is really good. Walk Like an Egyptian is my least favorite song on it.

    My InterpretationI know it sounds like a "boy/girl" song, but try to listen to it as a "girl/girl" song. Makes much more sense.

    General CommentIt feels like when you get dumped, and you are trying to move on from relationship, but someone who dumped you keep you in contact. Making it much harder to move on.

    My InterpretationSounds more of a girl/girl song than a girl/boy song. Try to imagine it that way when you listen to it.
