"Left Outside Alone" as written by Anastacia L. Newkirk, Glen Ballard and Dallas L. Austin....
All my life I've been waiting
For you to bring a fairy tale my way
Been living in a fantasy without meaning
It's not okay I don't feel safe

Left broken empty in despair
want to breath can't find air
Thought you were sent from up above
But you and me never had love
So much more I have to say
Help me find a way

And I wonder if you know
How it really feels
To be left outside alone
When it's cold out here
Well maybe you should know
Just how it feels
To be left outside alone
To be left outside alone

All my life I've been waiting
For you to bring a fairytale my way
Been living in a fantasy without meaning
It's not okay I don't feel safe
I need to pray

Why do you play me like a game?
Always someone else to blame
Careless, helpless little man
Someday you might understand
There's not much more to say
But I hope you find a way

Still I wonder if you know
How it really feels
To be left outside alone
When it's cold out here
Well maybe you should know
Just how it feels
To be left outside alone
To be left outside alone

All my life I've been waiting
For you to bring a fairytale my way
Been living in a fantasy without meaning
It's not okay I don't feel safe
I need to pray

And I wonder if you know
How it really feels
To be left outside alone
When it's cold out here
Well maybe you should know
Just how it feels
To be left outside alone
To be left outside alone

All my life I've been waiting
For you to bring a fairytale my way
Been living in a fantasy without meaning
It's not okay I don't feel safe
I need to pray

    General CommentIt's a song about being in a relationship and being cut out and ignored by the other person you love.

    General CommentThis song, it's not about a relationship with anyboyfriend, Anastacia's parents are divorced, since she were little, in this song is his father the protagonist, because he left her outside alone:

    All my life I’ve been waiting
    For you to bring a fairytale my way
    Been living in a fantasy without meaning
    It’s not okay I don’t feel safe
    I need to pray

    He never brang her a fairytale..., thinks a little bit, before talking about her boobs, or something like that, all her songs are really good, and she doesn't complain in everysong, but when you think she's complaining, she has songs about how fight against problems through life...

    Song MeaningSorry in advance for my english, but I think is important my comment here....
    I think that there's a meaning (for to know the truth, we could have to go to the source... but are we sue she'll say us the Truth?........).
    Well, maybe that the song refers to a particular relationship, maybe she's just a wore, or maybe she just wanna do money... But I need to connect some particular events, and things (that maybe at end haven't nothing to do together... who knows!)
    She was affected by a cancer, in 2003, that she discoverd casually, after an examination for plastic surgery. but this doesn't meaning nothing..... maybe.
    another thing... the song, could be referred to a relationship for someone... but, there's a phrase that clash with that conclusion:

    "All my life I’ve been waiting
    For you to bring a fairytale my way
    Been living in a fantasy without meaning
    It’s not okay I don’t feel safe"

    ....WHAT??? All my life?? Not "all this time" or "all this years"..... all my LIFE!!...
    So what in a life...... in our life, make we be waitin' for that similar to a fairytale, and we are promised we will bring in that "fairytale"........ if we remain good persons??
    Well, if you find the Right answer to this question(possibly, with the reasons for this answer), maybe you will wake up from this ...Fantasy without meaning...... or maybe not! ;) but.. there's a phrase that I really love, deeply with ALL MY HEART:

    "Who is looking for, do not stop trying. If you try, you will find. If you find, will be surprised. If you will be surprised, will become king over all."
    I hope you'll love it too, and to teach others, to do the same........ With my heart....

    WAKE UP NOW, NEO THIS MATRIX REALLY EXISTS!! ;)

    General CommentDon't bother looking for a meaning in this song, there is none, just this brain dead old whore complaining, the same as every other song she has made.

    Just to reiterate, there is no meaning.
    None.
    Not-a-one.
    Goose egg.
