"What You're Made Of" as written by and Peter Gordeno Mike Peden....
Like I predicted
We're at the point of no return
We can't go backwards
And the corners have been turned
I can't control it
If I sink or if I swim
Coz I chose the waters that I'm in

And it makes no difference
Who is right or wrong
I deserve much more than this
Coz there's only one thing I want

If it's not
What you're made of
You're not what I'm looking for
You were willing
But unable
To give me anymore
There's no way
You're changing
Coz somethings
Will just never be mine
You're not loved this time
But it's alright
Oooh oh oh

I hear you talking
But your words don't mean a thing
I doubt you ever
Put your heart in anything
It's not much to ask for
To get back what I brought in
But I chose the waters that I'm in

And it makes no difference
Who is right or wrong
I deserve much more than this
Coz there's only one thing I want

If it's not
What you're made of
You're not what I'm looking for
You were willing
But unable
To give me anymore
There's no way
You're changing
Coz somethings
Will just never be mine
You're not loved this time
But it's alright

What's your definition of the one
Oh ooh
Whatcha really want him to become
Oh oh
No matter what I sacrifice
It's still never enough

Just like I predicted
I will sink before I swim
Coz these aren't waters that I'm in

If it's not
What you're made of
You're not what I'm looking for
You were willing
But unable
To give me anymore
There's no way
You're changing
Coz somethings
Will just never be mine
You're not loved this time
You're not loved this time
You're not loved this time

    General CommentI think it's about a couple, that is breaking up. She's in love with him, but has realized that he doesn't feel the same way. But it's okay. "You're not in love this time, but it's alright" She knows it's not his fault, he just doesn't feel the same way. She deserves better, and therefore it's over.

    General CommentIt's most definitly about the end of a relationship. The girl class it off beacuse he's not in love, but she is. She needs the love to be mutual, and he can't do that for her, so she's leaving.

    General CommentIt could be about him not loving her, but the words...."What’s your definition of the one?
    What do you really want him to become?
    No matter what I sacrifice, it’s still never enough"

    Maybe she's asking for too much in the ralationship... "Just like I predicted, I will sink before I swim "

    She knew what she was getting into, and he couldent be what she wanted.

    Fantastic song though, one of mt all time favorites.

    General Commenti recently hooked up with this guy i liked ALOT! but he is just such a playa and it turns out he didnt like me he just wanted fun! the line: I chose the waters that I’m in and There’s no way
    You’re changing - means a lot coz i nu what he was like and how many girls he'd hooked up with but chose 2 let myself fall 4 him anyway and he aint gonna change 4 me! You were willing, but unable To give me anymore - this makes me think that he let himself hook up with me, but in the end coudont give me a relationship!! it just means so much 2 me!

    General Commenti think that maybe she chose to go out with him, knowing that it woz prob gonna end n her tears but she did anyways.. den she realised dat maybe he wanted to change but jst cudn... he wanted to commit but was unable. she's askin herself wat she expects of him and maybe even questions herself as to whether or not he woz actually the one for her anyways.. jst my views..!!

    General Commentthis song is about Lucie breaking up with someone who really isn't into her as much as she was into him, and she realizes she has wasted her time. A great dramatic track.

    General CommentWhat’s your definition of the one?
    What do you really want him to become?
    No matter what I sacrifice, it’s still never enough

    This is th best part to me... its like shes asking do you really want the person that you love have to TRY to love you. It shouldnt be that hard for him to just love you and if it is then maybe its just not meant to be.

    I'm still in the situation and i know that i should leave coz he'll never be become the one. But damn its tough!
