"Faded" as written by Jessica/origliasso Origliasso and Robert S Nevil....
You never take
Take the time to really look
Look at the one
The one I really am

You try to fit
To fit me in a perfect box
You let me slip between the cracks

[Chorus:]
Now I've faded
Into someone else
Made me someone I don't wanna be
Yeah I'm faded
My true color's gone
Like a picture nobody sees

I'll bet you don't
Don't even know my favorite song
You tell me how
How I should wear my hair

You wanna change
Everything I ever was
Try to erase me
Till I'm not there

[Chorus:]

Now I've faded
Like I never was
Till I don't even know myself
Yeah I'm faded
Into what you want
But I'm not takin' it too well

I don't wanna be your little picture perfect, pretty girl
Who's got nothing to say
I'm not gonna wait around
Let you run my whole life down
So you can watch me fade away

(Faded, faded)
You try to fit
Fit me in your perfect box

(Faded, faded)
You try to fit
Fit me in your perfect box

You try to fit
Fit me in a perfect box
You let me slip between the cracks

[Chorus:]

Now I've faded
Like I never was
Till I don't even know myself
Yeah I'm faded
Into what you want
But I'm not takin' it too well

I faded
(Faded, hated, slippin' away as I disappear in the dark)
I faded
(Faded, hated, so far away from who I was at the start)

Faded, hated, slippin' away as I disappear in the dark
Faded, hated, so far away from who I was at the start

    General CommentHmmm, well it's no surprise there's no comments here. I mean who would know Australia even exists? Are we invisible or something?

    Has anybody noticed 2day FM seems to play this back to back with "Just Feel Better" a lot?

    And also in the clip she's wearing the same style glasses as Steve Tyler is in the clip for "Just Feel Better"?

    General Commentyeah Australia rocks! lol i think this is a pretty mad song...

    I think its about some guy who has tried to make her something she's not, and shes given in and 'faded'!

    General CommentOkay, so maybe those kind of glasses are just fashionable at the moment...

    Note: This song was written by The Veronicas.

    General CommentThis song is great,
    people write it off because of the singer, kate, and because she was on australian idol.
    if the veronicas sung this, it would be gold, to most people.
    kate is really talented, and people need to look past the australian idol tag.
    kate is a very very talented girl, she deserves more credit. :)

    General CommentPerhaps the song is about the girl's family wanting her to be a perfect lady ('I don't wanna be a little picture perfect pretty girl'), which is against her nature...

    I'm from Melbourne, Oz - are there any non-Aussies posting on this?
