"Bitch" as written by and Meredith Anne/peiken Brooks....
I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet

Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
All rolled into one

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean
You'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that
When I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change
And today won't mean a thing

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

Just when you think, you got me figured out
The season's already changing
I think it's cool, you do what you do
And don't try to save me

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

I'm a bitch, I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
When you hurt, when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover
I've been numb, I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way

    General CommentMaybe this song can be about any woman - but for me it reminds me of one woman. Imrana (she won't mind me using her name) was someone I knew. She suffered from manic depression. Always going to extremes. She suffered a lot, but you couldn't say she wasn't alive. Her life was sometimes wilfully chaotic, but she really needed someone's love - well I guess we all do. She could really act like a bitch, and some people that was all they could see of her. Just when you thought you had a handle on her, everything'd be turned upside down, and you hadn't even noticed the season was already changing.
    If you're out there Imrana, take care.

    General CommentUnderneath, this song is speaking about an independent woman, who knows who she is and what she wants. All too often, "independent" has negative con notations but what does it mean, really? Here's a woman who will nourish and care and love, and yet she's ready to fight and argue and breakdown. It's speaking against this stereotypical notion of what a woman should be like (innocent, full of humility, one who suppresses her anger, etc.) opposed to what a woman really is. It takes a real woman to be strong and independent. It's speaking to all the men who want to love us for our bodies rather than our minds, and who want to embrace a woman who will obey everything they say.

    Also, someone mentioned about how this song reminded them of PMS. Haha, it's kind of true and I definitely see it this song! But it's also an embodiment of what being a woman - and not only a woman, but a human being with real feelings and all kinds of aspects to their personality - is really like.

    General CommentI love this song!
    I might be repeating some msg's, but I still dont feel like reading them all, too much LOL'ing.
    so here it goes, what this song means to ME:
    This is a song about every woman who ever lived, who can be a mother: responsible, and mature. And the next minute a child: who is free of all expectaions, and demands.
    or as Meredith says (so nicely:):
    Tomorrow I will change,
    And today won't mean a thing!.

    Kisses, Natalie.
