"Make Over" as written by Christina Aguilera, Linda Perry, Jonathan David Lipsey, Felix Starbuck Howard, Cameron Andrew Mcvey, Paul Simm, Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena and Siobhan Emma Donaghy....
I can't believe what you did to me
Down on my knees and I need to break free
All these years you violated me
(violated me)
I don't know why I can't feel inside
I try to hide can't make it alright, it's overkill
Now I'm ready to fight
(ready to fight)
I don't need nobody tryin' to make me over
I just want to live simple and free

I just want to get away
Savin' all your bullshit for another day

Feeling confined like I'm bin' force fed
My visions blurry and I'm lost in regrets
It's overloaded and I'm outta control
(outta control)
So sick and tired of bein' so misused
(so misused)
You're taking me down with all your mental abuse
And I said, I gotta get you outta my head
Everybody's always trying to look me over
I just want to live simple and free

I just want to get away
Saving all your bullshit for another day
I'm the only one that can rescue me from me

Leaving the house around quarter to five
Zipped up my boots and I'm ready to ride
And I feel so high, and I feel so alice
Let my hair down feel the wind on my skin
Crossin' the border where my new life begins
And I close my eyes and take it all in
I don't need nobody tryin' to make me over
(Don't make me over)
I just want to live simple and free

I just want to get away
Saving all your bullshit for another day
I'm the only one that can rescue me from me

I just want to get away
Saving all your bullshit for another day
I'm the only one that can rescue me from me

You want to break me down [Repeat: x3]

    General CommentIt's very easy to grasp the idea of this track. A common theme in Christina Aguilera's songs is how she was misused for the benefit of OTHERS.

    This song is basically about how in the early stages of her life she was simply a creation that was intended to make money and sell albums.

    And basically she is singing about how she is fed up with being made to be someone she's not. She says "I just want to lay simple and free." She just wants to do her own thing in regards to her musical career, her image and her personal decisions.

    General CommentI love this song. It's so powerful and pretty fun to just yell to :P

    I thought in this song she was referring to her dad who used to like, abuse her. but it could probably be about that and a relationship.

    xtina rocks
