"Real" as written by Tiffany Arbuckle Lee and Christa Nichole Wells....
Look at me I'm twenty three
Beautiful a sight to see
Tonight

A little dress to draw the press
And I'll be leaving
All the rest behind

Well be pleased girl
If this is what you wanted
The whole world is watching you take the stage
What will you say

Aren't I lovely
And do you want me cause
I am hungry for something that will make me real
Can you see me and
Do you love me cause
I am desperately searching for something
Real

I close my eyes imagine time
Will not forget
My sacrifice

I numb the ache and decorate
My emptiness
Stand naked in the light

Well be pleased world
If this is what you wanted
This young girl is everything that you made
What will she say

The world goes home
The lights go down
My lipstick fades
Away

    General CommentThe person is writing about being famous, and everyone's watching. She feels choked by all of it. But then someone is telling her how she wanted this before but now she wants to find something "real". I think she's referring to God, who she wants to find.

    General CommentI read somewhere that this song was inspired by an actress, (I think it was JLo), who was seen wearing a little skimpy dress. Tiffany (the lead singer) felt that inside, whether she recognized it or not, she was searching for real love, something she didn't have to fake pretend for to get.
