"Melancholy Melody" as written by Esthero, and James Jason Poyser....
Leave me alone
I just want to lay here in my room and let myself cry
I apologize if I've disappointed you
I got lost in my darkness and the light hurts my eyes

I know you're counting on me to feed all of our families
But I just need to be on my own for a little while
'Cause I can't stop singing these melancholy melodies
So until then I'll hide

I feel tired all the time, yeah, this weight is exhausting
I cannot please everyone, least of all me
I have no more to give you, it's all ready been stolen
Tell me, what's left for me, a melancholy melody

I know you're counting on me to feed all of our families
But I just need to be on my own for a little while
Cause I can't stop singing these melancholy melodies
So until then I'll hide, I'll hide

Well you think I'm scared to write
That I've got nothing left inside and I'm losing all my fire
But it still burns bright, just not on your command

You think I'm scared to write
That I've got nothing left inside and I'm losing all my fire
That I'm losing all my fire, am I losing all my fire?
Still burns bright, brighter yeah
Leave me alone, just wanna lay here alone in my room and let myself cry

I know you're counting on me to feed all of our families
But I just need to be on my own for a little while
So stop calling my phone, please don't come around my home
I just wanna be alone

I know you're counting on me to feed all of our families
But I just can't stop singing these melancholy melodies, yeah
I just wanna be, I just wanna beâ?¦alone

    General CommentEsthero was kicked off her Sony Record Label after her highly acclaimed ``Breath From Another`` did sale more then 250,000 copies. After that our sweet fairy Estherfairy was record contractless, at least for a moment. Luckily she was picked up by another record company and she has said in a few interviews that the record company called her up several times during each production of each song asking if the song is a hit or a number one, she said that she does make hits, she makes music! But I feel that that situation is definitely the inspiration from this song. And she is telling the record company that she still writes good music, just not when they demand it. Music comes with inspiration, not from telephone calls from record executives who want to make money off of you.
