"Attention" as written by and Alejandro Sanchez De Mendoza....
Somebody stop me!
(Somebody stop him, please!)
Night skies! (Brake lights!)
Stiff conversation cuts ties.

(Somebody stop him!)
Somebody stop me, please!
Everything everyone never said.
(Everything everyone never said.)

So, call this a lesson that's worth being learned.
(Is this the attention you deserve?)
Is this the attention you deserve?

(Somebody break him!)
Somebody break me, please!
(Don't wait!) Too late.
(Please move on with your life.)

(Heart punched with stars.)
Sky filled with emptiness.
(Everything you never said.)
Everything you never said.

So, call this a lesson that's worth being learned.
(Is this the attention you deserve?)
Is this the attention you deserve?

I tried these lines one too many times.
I tried these lines one too many times.
I tried these lines one too many times.

I tried these lines one too many times.
I tried these lines one too many times.
I tried these lines one too many times.

(I tried these lines one too many times!)
I tried these lines one too many times!
(I tried these lines one too many times!)
I tried these lines one too many times!

(I tried these lines, I tried...)
I tried these lines, I tried

(I tried these lines one too many times!)
So, call this a lesson that's worth being learned.

(I tried these lines one too many times!
I tried these lines one too many times!
I tried these lines one too many times!)
Is this the attention you deserve?

(I tried these lines one too many times!)
So, call this a lesson that's worth being learned.

(I tried these lines one too many times!)
[So, call this a lesson that's worth being learned!]
(I tried these lines one too many times!)
[So, call this a lesson that's worth being learned!]

(I tried these lines one too many times!)
[So, call this a lesson that's worth being learned!]
Is this the attention?

    General CommentWell I'm from New Zealand, found this song while browsing PureVolume...

    To me it's about a relationship that's broken down because of lack of communication, where things should have been said that weren't, or when things were said that shouldn't have been.

    General CommentI agree. It's about a breakdown in communication and somebody wanting more attention but not expressing it properly. Thus leading to a repetitive melodrama where you end up saying the same things over and over trying to understand what it is your girl/man wants.

    If the song sounds repetitive.... Good!!! It's supposed to!!! Most arguments do!!!!
