"Autobiography" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
You think you know me
Word on the street is that you do
You want my history
What others tell you won't be true

I walked a thousand miles while everyone was asleep
Nobody's really seen my million subtleties

Got stains on my t-shirt and I'm the biggest flirt
Right now I'm solo, but that will be changing eventually
Got bruises on my heart and sometimes I get dark
If you want my auto, want my autobiography
Baby, just ask me

I hear you talking
Well, it's my turn now
I'm talking back
Look in my eyes
So you can see just where I'm at

I walked a thousand miles to find one river of peace
And I'll walk a million more to find what this shit means

Got stains on my t-shirt and I'm the biggest flirt
Right now I'm solo, but that will be changing eventually, oh
Got bruises on my heart and
Sometimes I get dark
If you want my auto, want my autobiography
Baby, just ask me

I'm a bad ass girl in this messed up world
I'm a sexy girl in this crazy world
I'm a simple girl in a complex world
A nasty girl, you want to get with me?
You want to mess with me?

Got stains on my t-shirt and I'm the biggest flirt
Right now I'm solo, but that will be changing eventually
I laugh more than I cry
You piss me off, good-bye(good-bye)
Got bruises on my heart and sometimes I get dark
If you want my auto, want my autobiography
Baby, just ask me

    General CommentI'm not sure what this song means but whoever submitted the lyrics, they are completely wrong. Check the inside of the CD.

    General CommentThis song is about gossip and what people think they know about you but in reality its really not who you are. She's saying that if you want to know something about her you should just ask her to her face. But KDub123 is right. The lyrics are submitted incorrectly.

    General CommentThese lyrics are wrong.. definitely..

    This song is basically Ashlee telling you that you don't know her how you think you do. This song is telling you a little about herself. It is basically the introduction to her CD.. Her CD is called Autobiography.. So basically I think she just wants to get the point across that she isn't like her sister..

    General Commentthis song is actually pretty good. i relate to it, especially the part "i laff more than i cry" because all these girls at my school are trying to be all "drama drama drama!" and i'm like the only one who says shut the hell up and have fun you pansies you watch too many soap operas but yeah... thats prolly not what she meant by it but i dont care thats what i think

    General CommentIt's not "I walked a million more to find which fish is which" its "and I'll walk a million more to find what this shit means" Also its not "I'M THE BADDEST GIRL..." it's "I'm a bad-ass girl" The song means that you can't know someone if you ask somebody else. I LOVE ASHLEE SIMPSON!!
