"What Of Me" as written by Anna-lynne Williams, John Michael Williams, Matt Brown and Ross Simonini....
It's a place that's not so far
I dream there and sometimes I wake there
Do you want me caring less?
Sometimes we don't ask for what we need

And I can guess how I want to be loved
And I've guessed what of me you need
It doesn't matter if we lie
Your sentences never defined you

Do you think that I can't feel?
When I touch you, there's words on your body
Should you be scared
When I say sometimes I'd want you dead?
So no one else can have you when it ends
How'd I reach this point on my own?

This is not the first time
I've watched the end of the thing that had no end
Do you want me caring less?
Sometimes we let go of what we need
Why can't you guess how I want to be loved?
You can't even tell me what of me you need

    General CommentI can't get enough of this song... I can't get enough of them. Wish they would tour more so that I could see them, more should start listening to them...

    should you be scared
    when i say sometimes i'd want you dead
    so no one else can have you when it ends?

    General Commentone of the most beautiful heart-wrenching songs i've ever heard. i get teary eyed when i hear it. there's so much desperation and longing... it breaks my heart.

    "when i touch you there's words on your body
    should you be scared
    when i say sometimes i'd want you dead
    so no one else can have you when it ends?"

    those lines get me every time.

    General CommentIt's such a sad and longing song. She clearly loves this guy very much, but is incredibly confused at his distance. She's starting to feel that maybe she'd be better off without him, but is too afraid to let go ("Sometimes we don't ask for what we need.") It's this struggle between the two of them, she trying to figure out who he is, why it's so much different than what she thought it'd be like. At the same time, she innately knows exactly what is happening, and what he is feeling towards her - she knows it's over between them. She's let herself fall apart, she's allowed herself to change in hopes the relationship will stay together, but it's just not working. At the same time, she's basically on her knees, begging him for things to be fixed, for his love to be returned, for him to even just to know her like he used to.
