"24 Hours" as written by Kemar Mcgregor, Duane Stephenson, Paul Crossdale and Stefan Warren....
I've been sitting in the dirt (for twenty four hours)
I've forgotten my own worth (for twenty four hours)
Said that you'd be here last night (oh)

I'm trying to shake you from my skin (for forty eight hours)
Clean up this mess I've been put in (for forty eight hours)
I'm guessing you can't always win
I'm guessing you can't always win

I can't have anything I want
They say I'm just too young
But it's not my fault
I'll find my own way home if I gotta
I'll make it all alone if I gotta

I'm not so trustful with my friends
I'm on the road alone again
I guess I'm tired of giving in (oh oh)

I'm sick of wishing you were near
You've gone your way, you've made it clear
Why do I feel you everywhere?
Why do I feel this everywhere? Yeah!

I can't have anything I want
They say I'm just too young
But it's not my fault
I'll find my own way home if I gotta
I'll make it all alone if I gotta

Don't want to spend my time
Watching the world go by
I think I'd rather die
And I don't got a plan
Not gonna justify
To stay where I stand
Something I won't deny

I can't have anything I want
They say I'm just too young
But it's not my fault
I'll find my own way home if I gotta
I'll make it all alone if I gotta

I can't have anything I want
They say I'm just too young
But it's not my fault
I'll find my own way home if I gotta
I'll make it all alone

Twenty four hours
Twenty four hours
Twenty four hours
Twenty four hours
Twenty four hours

    General CommentNice imagery at the beginning. Hm, sounds like this guy decided to skip out on her. Now she's trying to prove she can move on and doesn't need anyone's help. Even if they think she's just a typical stubborn child. The chorus has gotta be my favorite part of the song.

    General Commenti think this song is about how everyone says tha she can't have certain things because she's too young or not good enough and she's just saying that she doesn't need them. that she'll do it all alone if she has to.

    General CommentNo one? Well, I love this song. You can tell the attraction between her and tommy. It's all about how young she is and blah blah blah. But a great song!

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the people in your life who don't feel you're good enough or the people who don't think you'll achieve much in life for whatever their reasons may be. As well as the people who take you for granted. Like for example the the good enough lyrics:"I've been sitting in the dirt. (24 hours) I've forgotten my own worth.(24 hours)" as well as the chorus "I can't have anything I want, they say I'm just to young but it's not my fault. I'll find my own way home if I gotta...I'll make it all alone if I gotta...in 24 hours. I think this directed toward the people who don't think or don't want her to achieve greats thing in life. And the for granted lyrics: " Tryna shake ya from my skin. (24 hours) Clean up this mess I've been put in. (24 hours) as well as: "I'm not so trustful with my friends. I'm on the road alone again. I guess I'm tired of giving in." These meaning people take her friendship and being there for them for granted and leave her to fix whatever situation they put her in.
