"Parade On" as written by and Charlotte Martin....
Her hands are in the air again
Stripped of pride
She was waiting for a sign to be let in
She tried to stop a train for him
Without shoes
He was so amused, amused

She needs a reason to parade on
She needs a new road to pave
She needs a reason to parade on
It's wearing her outsides thin
There's someone there to save

You wonder why she gives and gives
'Til it burns (burns)
And there is nothing he can give her in return
She'll live and die by make-believe
Her frozen heart (heart)
Well he can't wait around while she gets blown apart

She needs a reason to parade on
She needs a new road to pave
She needs a reason to parade on
It's wearing her outsides thin
There's someone there to save

The distance won't know
Which way you should go
'Cause we are not built so we can float
We are what we are (we are)
But that seems so far (we are)
Parting the red sea is easier, easier

It's time to introduce herself
She's dethroned
Like some lonesome dusty book upon his shelf

She needs a reason to parade on
She needs a new road to pave
She needs a reason to parade on
It's wearing her outsides thin
There's someone there to save on
There's nothing I can say and
There's nothing I can say

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who's emotionally unstable at the moment for a relationship (maybe is on the rebound). She's desperately in love w/ him and wants to "save" him from his sadness. He sees her compassion but knows he can't be w/ her right now and doesn't want to even try b/c he knows he's not ready...hence "he can't wait around while she gets blown apart."

    General CommentI think maybe it's not even about a specific relationship, it's just about the girl herself. She's the sort of girl who throws herself into her relationships with all her heart, but nobody she finds is willing to do that back. They even get amused by her intensity, and possibly scared off. She needs to know that there's somebody out there who believes in love as strongly as she does, or she will end up a cynic all alone because she isn't willing to settle for a cheap imitation of what her heart wants to find.
