"Confusion" as written by Timothy Booth, James Glennie, David John Baynton-power, Saul Davies and Mark Hunter....
It's funny how it tears me apart
First it breaks your head then your heart
I should've loved you better
From the start
It's chewin' at my bones and my brains
It's workin' through the flesh that remains
Why can't this feelin' leave me
And just fade away?
From day one I led you on
I'm sorry girl, but I can't stay
Things have changed, they're not the same
Now I must walk the other way
Confusion raining down from up high
And all the time you ask yourself 'why?'
Why can't you make decisions
Can't make up your mind
Although you're trying hard to forget
The reason why you feel so misled
Now come on and forgive me
I'll help you accept
From day one I led you on
I'm sorry girl, but I can't stay
Things have changed, they're not the same
Now I must walk the other way
From day one I led you on
I'm sorry girl, but I can't stay
Things have changed, they're not the same
Now I must walk the other way home

    General CommentOnce again, I'm commenting with how this reminds me of me, except just switch the genders around. I'm a big ol' flirt and I unfortunately lead guys on to thinking I'm interested in them, and then I freak out and stay away from them for a while. Well, I try to, at least. Haha, sorry for the story.

    General CommentFantastic song, definitely about a messed up relationship, simply because it wasn't a relationship in the first place.

    His voice sounds beautiful, particularly in the chorus; "From day one...." - almost a yearning for the other person, and a wish that he really did feel something for her even though he doesn't.

    General CommentI like this song. It made me think of my actions and how much I was damaging other people.
