"Kiss Me Fool" as written by and Levine/mccollum/dobson....
Tell me who should I be to make you love me?
Tell me what does it mean to be alone?
Can't you see me standing staring out from the distance,
Hear my cry if you'd only listen
?

Kiss me fool, if you can.
And those words, you'd better mean it.
Lady Cool is over there

Why the spell of secrecy?
God forgive, I can't find out what we did.
Why can't someone like you be someone like me?

Tell me who should I be to make you love me?
Tell me what does it mean to be alone?
Can't you see me standing staring out from the distance,
Hear my cry if you'd only listen
?

Touch me fool, if your allowed.
I'll be dancing in the cold.
It's so cool to play around,
Take your hand and come with me.
I'm aware that all in love is fair,
But that's no reason to make me feel this way.

Tell me who should I be to make you love me?
Tell me what does it mean to be alone?
Can't you see me standing staring out from the distance,
Hear my cry if you'd only listen
?

Don't ask me somehow to deny it, ooh,
These feelings are out of control.
Do you know what it's like to want something so bad,
And then having to let it go?
And it hurts me to know that this time in our lives,
So soon will be in the past
And you spend it pretending your playing it cool.
Never knowing,
Never knowing,
Never knowing what,
What we should've been.

Tell me who should I be to make you love me?
Tell me what does it mean to be alone?
You've got me wondering if I'm good enough.
Freedom,
Giving it up
Especially now

Tell me who should I be to make you love me?
Who should I be? Who should I be? Ooh
To make you love me?
Who should I be? Who should I be? Ooh
To make you love me?
Who should I be? Who should I be? Ooh
To make you love me?

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who's trying too hard to make this guy like her so much that she's willing to change herself. It's a sad thing but you shouldn't have to change who you are to make someone love you. It should never be that hard. Finding someone who loves her for who you are is the better approach. The guy isn't even worth it really if he didn't really like her in the first place. I can relate to this song

    General CommentIt's about a girl who's in a relationship with someone who acts differently when he's alone with her and when there's other people around. He's sorta playing with her but she's still trying to make him love her. She wants to be able to quit him but she's just too much in love and she's willing to do anything.
    But eventually she realizes that she doesn't need to change anything about herself, and she's just upset that such a special time in her life is ending. But she stills wonders if she could've done something differently so he would love her.

    General CommentI see some relation in this song to a gay couple - one person wants to be out and open about their relationship and the other is more hesitant, keeping it quiet and only something acknowledged when they're alone. The first verse especially sounds like it could be about this. The relationship is hidden from friends, and what they would say if they learned about it - coming out as gay is still social suicide in a lot of places. The 'who should I be' part of the chorus is all about how the singer would have to change to be able to go out in public with their boyfriend/girlfriend, how as they are, they're not someone that their boyfriend/girlfriend will take out in public and that the part about how 'this time in our lives will soon be in the past' is them realizing that they're not going to change and it's time to part ways.

    It relates to both gay and straight audiences, but I just see some subtext towards it being about a gay couple. YMMV

    Song MeaningI love this song! This song means that she was willing to change who she is just to have him. He's one of them boys who cares about his image, and what his friends think. She and him had like some kind of secret connection thing, going on like maybe one date, or they talked and now its like he never met her. He might shoot her a glance but other than that, he acts as if he never knew her at all. So she's willing to channge who she is, just to fit into his life. So she's asking "Who should I be to make you love me?" She telling him that if he really cares about her, and not his image, than "Kiss me fool."
