"Anyone" as written by Daniel Giles Sells, Richard Peter Jones, Kevin Francis Jeremiah, Paul Ronald Stewart and Ciaran David Jeremiah....
Where the hell did you get that smile
I haven't seen one of them in a while
'Cause these days, I'm such a bore
I mope around
Like I seen it all before, but something has changed, I used to be an open heart
What have you done to me

It could have been anyone, it could have been anyone
It could have been anyone, it could have been anyone
But it wasn't you and it wasn't him, it was me who felt like a fool right then
And I won't be the only one
It could have been anyone, yes it could
Yeah, yeah

When the hell did you get so wise
Foiled again by attempts to disguise
Do you recall the day we kissed
Upon the curb, surrounded by the mist
I gave you my world, to tear apart
Another fool, another broken heart

It could have been anyone, it could have been anyone
It could have been anyone, it could have been anyone
But it wasn't you and it wasn't him, it was me who felt like a fool right then
And I won't be the only one
It could have been anyone

I know doing it again, it's out of line
Trying to catch a fish down the line
I know doing it again, I must be blind
I'm doing it again
I'm doing it again

It could have been anyone, it could have been anyone
It could have been anyone, It could have been anyone
But it wasn't you and it wasn't him, it was me who felt like a fool right then
And I can't be the only one
It could have been anyone

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who gets involved with a girl who's got a boyfriend or husband and has no intention of leaving him, and he realises and feels like an idiot with a broken heart - and he knows she'll do it again to someone else:

    But it wasn't you
    And it wasn't him.
    It was me who fell like a fool right in,
    And I won't be the only one,
    It could have been anyone!

    General CommentWhere the hell did you get that smile?
    I haven't seen one of them in a while.
    Cause these days, I'm such a boy-
    I mope around like I've seen it all before
    But something has changed.
    I used to be an open heart, what have you done to me?!

    I think this means: who put a smile like that upon your face? These days everything just seems to be the same except for the fact that I used to be able to love freely and now look what you've done to me..
    It could have been anyone.(x4)
    But it wasn't you
    And it wasn't him.
    It was me who fell like a fool right in,
    And I won't be the only one,
    It could have been anyone!

    I think this means: of all people you chose him, which made me the fool. Maybe it's someone else too, but you chose him anyway. It could have been anyone, but I was the one who got fooled..

    When the hell did you get so wise?
    Foiled again my attempts to disguise.
    Do you recall the day we kissed,
    Upon the coast surrounded by the mist?
    I gave you my world-to tear apart.
    And now the fool, another broken heart.


    I gave you all my love, dedicated my life to you and you took me for a fool.


    And I know I'm doing it again-
    It's out of line.
    (Trynna catch a fish without a line.)
    And I know I'm doing it again-
    I must be blind,
    I'm doing it again.
    Yeah!

    I love you too much to leave you though I know you're impossible for me to have. I'm so addicted to you that I'm blindly trying to be with you again when it's him who you really love and I was just the back-up plan..

    General CommentThis is my favourite song at the moment, I really like it. I think it's about a guy who fell in love with a girl once and they just didn't fit. Now she has another and he realizes that he's in love with her again/still.

    General Commentfirst line reminds me of my best mate
    ''where the hell did you get that smile''
    cos his smiles amazing :)

    and that line ''i gave you my world to tear apart, another fool another broken heart.''
    he gave someone everything, and 'to tear apart' suggests he knows it will end badly... but still

    amazing song :)
