"Fall Behind Me" as written by and Maya/robertson Ford....
I can't believe she bought it
She got too close and she caught it
Had a point but she forgot it
When you skip steps on the way up
The gaps have a way of catching up
And you can't cover that with makeup

Your gonna fall behind me
Your gonna cry and beg for mercy
'Cause your not ready baby
And you got nothing on me
And you got nothing on me)

Now that I'm getting to know her
Part of me wants to show her
Who she's really screwing over
Cause she's got nothing real
Taking everything she can steal
Just like it was her last meal

[Repeat: x2]
Your gonna fall behind me
Your gonna cry and beg for mercy
'Cause your not ready baby
And you got nothing on me

How long is she gonna be around
And how long do we have to watch her dumb it down
'Cause when its cheap it fades fast
And how long does she think it's gonna last?

Your gonna fall behind me
Your gonna cry and beg for mercy
'Cause your not ready baby
And you got nothing on me

Your gonna fall behind me
Your gonna cry and beg for mercy
'Cause your not ready baby

And you got nothing on me
And you got nothing on me
And you got nothing on me
And you got nothing on me

    General Commenti think the last comment is wrong and the donnas are a great girl band and this song is about a girl who is screwing herself over

    General CommentIt sounds like someone is getting ahead by cheating/stealing, and walking over other people in the process. I think this song is about how it's going to catch up to them.

    General CommentLove this song...Love this band! I think this song's about her guy cheatin' on her and she's tellin' him she's better than her and he'll find that out soon enough. Haha, I'd say the same to my guy if he tried that crap.

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who's really fake and everybody knows shes just faking and she looks really cheap and like she's gonna fall apart and can't keep up with the lies she's telling... I mean, HELLO, didn't any Donnas fan except me buy NYLON with them on the cover?

    General CommentThe Donnas rock but has anyone noticed that the riff and chords sound like a bit too much like Bon Jovi's 'Hey God'.
