"Consider This" as written by and Anna Nalick....
I've tripped again and things are starting to get interesting
Don't give me choices 'cause I can't decide
My mind is soaked in words
I've come to terms with all my insecurities
And purity's no friend of mine

And dreaming doesn't do no good
'Cause I don't want to lie
That I'm okay and I'm alright
I'd rather take it and forget it
Consider this a warning
'Cause I'll start another fight
And you'll say it's alright
I'll wait for the day when you find I'm too much for you, Baby
And feel what you only see
But don't bother wasting your time if you're trying to
Change me

You're kinda cool but I know better than to break the rules
Of messin' with a lesson that I'll never learn
I'll go from bad to worse and later back to better
But I'll never better bridges that I'm bent to burn

And dreaming doesn't do no good
'Cause I don't want to lie
That I'm okay and I'm alright
I'd rather take it and forget it
Consider this a warning
'Cause I'll start another fight
And you'll say it's alright
I'll wait for the day when you find I'm too much for you, Baby
And feel what you only see
But don't bother wasting your time if you're trying to
Change me

This is a warning

And dreaming doesn't do no good
'Cause I don't want to lie
That I'm okay and I'm alright
I'd rather take it and forget it
Consider this a warning
'Cause I'll start another fight
And you'll say it's alright
I'll wait for the day when you find I'm too much for you, Baby
And feel what you only see
But don't bother wasting your time if you're trying to
Change me

    General CommentAll right, this happens to be one of my theme songs, so I can tell you all about it. lol. Here we go, in detail!

    She's a damaged girl, a girl with a past. Sometimes she's okay and sometimes she isn't. Right now, she isn't. (I've tripped again and things are starting to get interesting). She's tripping up again. She's got a lot of insecurities, fueled by people insulting/critiscing her. (My mind is soaked...insecurities). And it seems like she just can't do right. (Purity's no friend of mine). She's always screwing up.

    Nonetheless, she doesn't want to escape reality (dreaming doesn't do no good) and she doesn't want to hide her problems and pretend that she's okay ('Cause I don't wanna lie...take it and forget it). This is a warning to this guy who wants to be close to her. She's a bit emotionally unstable, so she tends to start a lot of fights ('Cause I'll start another fight) and this guy will just appease her (You'll say it's all all right). But, someday, he won't be able to take it anymore and he'll leave her (I wait for the day when you find I'm too much for you, baby.) And she's saying, if you can accept all this, then ok. But don't try and change me. It's not gonna happen.

    She likes this guy a lot (You're kinda cool), but she sees that they aren't a good match. Or, at least, she thinks they aren't because she thinks that he can't handle her (But I know better than to break the rules of messin' with a lesson that I'll never learn). Sure, she'll have good days, months even, but the bad ones will always come back around (I'll go from bad to worse and later back to better) and during the bad ones, she'll probably just hurt him and be hurt by him (But I'll never better bridges that I'm bent to burn).

    General CommentThis song is so amazing, I love the melody.. the music.. everything about it. This song, to me, is about a girl/woman who is messed up.. who has a past, a few skeltons in her closet but is okay with it, shes excepted that shes not perfect.
    She has met a boy, who she really likes but she thinks hes like all the rest, its a warning to him that she will not change no matter what he does. She seems like a person who stays away from serious relationships because she cant handle them, she has pulled herself out of time, out of love , out of life, and this guy is pushing to be with her.. She is so full of doubts, but this guy thinks he can help.. Although she will not change, she does need to open up .. thats just what I get from the song

    An amazing song.. REALLY!
