"Masterpiece" as written by and Meg Frampton....
Too bad you knew me.
I wasn't ready.
I wasn't ready.
Did I say come and get me?
Too bad I held on when you tried to tell me,
This was wrong.
This was wrong.

I am no masterpiece where innocence is painted green
Isn't it strange to think how you created all of me?

[Chorus]
Done by the hands of a broken artist
You painted black where my naked heart is
Now I finally know what wrong is
Carved like a stone with hands still shaking
On display through a soul still breakin'
Aren't you proud you're the one that made me?

You can't erase these, lines you can't save me
You can't display me, you know what dismay means
Can't even try to
Remember what I knew
Before I became your model to claim no

I grew tired
You expired
You finished me
Now that I'm all that you planned
What do you think?

[Chorus]

(I won't ever let you fall, I'm no masterpiece at all)

    General CommentI think this song means that there was a guy who she was with for a while and he slowly molded her into who he needed her to be, cold and heartless. Now he's bored and moved on and left her and shes realizing what happened. And that shes not the person she wanted to be coming out of their relationship. Possibly he blamed it on her and shes saying that it's not her fault he made her this way?

    General Commenti agree with that too.

    and i think that in this part "Too bad you knew me.
    When I wasn't ready.vI wasn't ready Did I say, "Come and get me?" Too bad I held on. When you tried to tell me. This was wrong. Well, is this wrong?" she wasnt stable or ready for a relationship but she stayed in it and durring it he told her what was wrong & right.

    "Done by the hands of a broken artist.
    You painted black where my naked heart is.
    I finally know what wrong is.
    Now I finally know that you bleed for nothing.
    Carved by the stone with your hands still shaking.
    On display through a soul still breaking.
    Aren't you proud that you're the one that made me?
    Aren't you proud that you're the one that made me?"
    i think when she sings this she says now that she looks back she says that he wasn't even strong/ stable enough to tell her whats wrong/ right and now she knows and has her own opions on what is "wrong" & "right". also that he didn't show or teach her love. and now she's not sure of what it is.

    "You can't erase these.
    Lines you can't save me.
    You can't display me.
    You know what dismay means.
    I can't even try to.
    Remember what I knew.
    Before I became your.
    Model to claim no."
    in this part i think it means like now that they (or she) relize/s that he was wrong there is nothing that they can do. and he told her so many wrong things that she doenst even know what she thought cause he trried to change her opions so much.


    just my opions. but i love this song.

    General Commentmeg herself said this song is about being with someone who sort of changes you into what they want you to be, and then after you realize you made a mistake and should've never changed and that you should be your own 'masterpeice'. ha. :)

    favorite song by them thoughhh, i love meg&dia. :]

    General CommentI felt like "Too bad you knew me, when I wasn't ready, well I wasn't ready, did I say come and get me?" I feel like that's about her losing her virginity when she was too young..

    General Commenti could be wrong, which i probably am, but to me it feels as if she lost her virginity to a guy, and he took that away from her, and she can't change that.

    General Comment********************
    I know cuz this happened to me and this song is was exactly what the doctor ordered......................


    "Too bad you knew me.
    When I wasn't ready.
    I wasn't ready.
    Did I say, "Come and get me?""
    **I had just turned 14 i wasnt ready for that serious of a sexual/emotional relationship

    ""I am no masterpiece where innocence is painted green.
    Isn't it strange to think that you created all of me?""
    **Ater that boy i wasnt "innocent" anymore, he changed me, it was the first time i had ever really loved and cared about someone that much, even before i lost my virginity to him

    ""Done by the hands of a broken artist.
    You painted black where my naked heart is.
    I finally know what wrong is.""

    **he painted black where my naked heart was, he turned me somewhat bitter he played with my heart, blah blah..And my heart was naked cuz i was naked
    around him, no barriers no walls no hiding anything
    and i know what wrong is cause he treated me wrong towards the end

    """You can't erase these.
    Lines you can't save me.
    You can't display me.
    You know what dismay means.
    I can't even try to.
    Remember what I knew.
    Before I became your.
    Model to claim no."""
    ***He cant erase what he did and what he molded me into, and I cant even try to remember what i knew was when he took my morals and changed me, i stopped caring about thinks like that
    parties and 1 night stands came along after him
