"Hopeless Case" as written by Shelly Peiken, Chris Demakes, Vinnie Fiorello and Rogerio Lima Manganelli....
I have this feeling inside
That I wouldn't like me if I met me
It seems like a losing fight
If you could see it through my eyes, then you'd believe me

The truth is that I'm overrated
I can't think straight, I'm formulaic
The truth is that it's sad to say it
But you can't help me

You, you don't see me that way, you hear the words that I say
You just tell me my heart's in the right place
It's the world that's confused
And it's never too late to save a hopeless case

I've always known a ghost like me
Can disappear in a moment
Well, I'm my own worst casualty
Anything I touch can be broken

The truth is that I'm self-destructive
I'm insecure, I'm out of focus
The truth is that I've had enough
But you still help me

You, you don't see me that way
You hear the words that I say
You just tell me my heart's in the right place
(You hear the words that I say)

It's the world that's confused,
(You hear the words that I say)
And it's never too late to save a hopeless case

You're giving me perspective
Whoa, it's better than mine
Whoa, and I'll still be defective
And you're wasting your time

The truth is that I'm self-destructive
I'm insecure, I'm out of focus
The truth is that I've had enough
But you still help me

You, you don't see me that way
You hear the words that I say
You just tell me my heart's in the right place
(You hear the words that I say)

It's the world that's confused,
(You hear the words that I say)
And it's never too late to save a hopeless case
(You hear the words that I say)

And my head is on straight
(You hear the words that I say)
And it's never too late to save a hopeless case

    General CommentThis song is all about having a person that always cheers you up when you think everything you do is wrong.

    Nice song, by the way.

    General CommentThis song is about someone who is trying to help someone who feels worthless and like no matter what anyone does they'll never be anything but a hopeless case. The person is torn between being grateful and surprised that anyone would try to help them and being cynical that they'll be able to succeed at all. I can really relate to this song a lot of the time.

    General CommentThis song is awesome. It seems to me like it's about a guy who's just always down on himself, and doesn't think highly of himself at all, but someone there never gives up on him, and this is his way of thanking them

    General Commentbasically this song is someone telling another person who is alot more optimistic to not get invovled with them because they arent as great as they seem. the other person tries so hard to make them feel like they are worth it but the speakr is so far gone he doesnt even believe he is

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who has a low self-esteem and thinks he is worthless, but one of his friends (gf?) is always around to cheer him up and make him feel better about himself.
