"Not Everyone" as written by and James/forrest Galley....
Hey
You're not the first
You're not the last
To hold me back

Yeah
It's such a shame
It's such a waste
To hesitate

Now
I've seen the light
I've heard the sound
Of bringing others down

Not everyone deserves the sun
Not everyone lives for too long
Not everyone can turn you on
Yeah

Strange
What people say
About your face
The way it changed

It's hard
To fall behind
They bleed you dry
And blow your mind

Now
You've lost control
You've let it show
And now no-one knows

Not everyone deserves the sun
Not everyone lives for too long
Not everyone can turn you on
Yeah

Just say my name
Just say my name
Just say my name
Just say..

Not everyone deserves a song
Not everyone lives for too long
Not everyone can turn you on
Yeah

Not everyone deserves a lie
Not everyone deserves to die
Not everyone can bleed you dry
Yeah

    General CommentLovely and sarcastic and angsty. I think its about hating someone so much for something they've done to you that you see them as less than human - they "dont deserve the sun" like everyone else, they "dont deserve a song" etc.

    General CommentThey are one of my faviorite bands, because i like the messages in their songs, about how it is better to be yourself.

    I think this song is about people who believe the world revolves around them and how people of such a nature often get mad when things don't go their way.
