"Revolution" as written by Michael Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk....
I am temperamental
Like a heart without a home
I am sentimental
But you don't know me at all

I have expectations
I wanna be the one you call
And I want a conversation
But you don't know me at all

Hold on tight
I am
I'm a revolution
Close your eyes
I am, I am
I'll blow your mind
I am
I'm a revolution
Why do I have to explain
Who I am again and again
I am

I know what you're thinkin'
I can tell what you're waitin' for
But I think that you're pretendin'
But you don't fool me at all

If you knew me at all
You'd take my picture
And you'd hang it on your wall

Hold on tight
I am
I'm a revolution
Close your eyes
I am, I am
I'll blow your mind
I am
I'm a revolution
Why do I have to explain
Who I am again and again
I am

I didn't know that you've been wanting me
Oh how's a girl supposed to know
Just when you think that it's all tragedy
Don't worry baby I'll go slow

Hold on tight
I am
I'm a revolution
Close your eyes
I am, I am
I'll blow your mind
I am
I'm a revolution
Why do I have to explain
(Why do I have to explain)
Who I am again and again

Hold on tight
I am
I'm a revolution
Close your eyes
I am, I am
I'll blow your mind
I am
I'm a revolution
Why do I have to explain
Who I am again and again
I am

    General CommentRevolution is all about being strong, and that girls can do anything...as the Spice Girls would say: GIRL POWER!

    It's like a girl saying "Don't mess with me!" to guys...

    General Commentuntil you guys have record deal and top-selling albums and singles i don't think you guys can talk >__>

    I admit their lyrics aren't very deep but not everything has to be... i dont think they even intended for them to be deep just a bit of fun.. so lighten up its a catchy song

    General CommentWhat are you comparing them to Bob Dylan? There target audience is teenage girls who listen to the songs ar partys, having fun it doesn't need good lyrics, besides they have aussie accents i love chicks with aussie accents

    General CommentThey're pop for god's sake - something to listen to with your mates, acting silly, dancing around with a hairbrush. They do good "Fuck You" songs for teenage girls and older people alike and jeez - I don't even listen to this kind of music, but come on. =/

    General Commentif they were the "revolution" then why don't they play their own instruments and no that doesn't count knowing how to play a few chords.its probably because they can't do both at the same time...sad... and if they were the revolution why don' t they have their songwriters write songs about more important things that's not about boys? i can tell they sure are going to make a large impact on the music world.
