"Neglected" as written by Balewa M. Muhammad, Floyd Nathaniel Hills, Kara Dioguardi and Katharine Mcphee....
If these walls could talk
Baby, what would they say
They've been a witness to all of the pain
I gave you everything I had to give

Now I'm so empty 'cause you had your fill
You took the light from my face
The more you try to tell me that you've changed, the more I feel
Neglected

If this is how you try to make it up to me then lets
Just end it
I don't like this feeling anymore
I don't like this feeling
'Cause whenever I'm around you boy I know that I won't be respected
Just neglected

All that I wanted was you by my side
But you walked in front of me all of the while
Nothing that I ever did was good enough
Well thank you baby 'cause you made me tough
Now I can go on my way
On my way

The more you try to tell me that you've changed, the more I feel
Neglected
If this is how you try to make it up to me then lets
Just end it
I don't like this feeling anymore
I don't like this feeling
'Cause whenever I'm around you boy I know that I won't be respected
Just neglected

I never saw it coming
I should have kept on running
But instead I was there by your side
Believing in all of your lies

(How could you neglect me
Straight up disrespect me)
How could you
(How could you neglect my love)
How could you neglect my love
(How could you neglect me
Straight up disrespect me
How could you neglect my love)
How could you neglect my love

The more you try to tell me that you've changed, the more I feel
Neglected (the more you try to change, the more I feel neglected)
If this is how you try to make it up to me then lets
Just end it (we need to just end it)
I don't like this feeling anymore
I don't like this feeling
'Cause whenever I'm around you boy I know that I won't be respected
Just neglected

How could you neglect me
Straight up disrespect me
How could you neglect my love
How could you neglect me
Straight up disrespect me
How could you neglect my love
(How could you)
How could you neglect me
Straight up disrespect me (you)
How could you neglect my love
(How could you)
How could you neglect me
Straight up disrespect me
How could you neglect my love

    General CommentThis is probably my favourite song from the album.
    She singing about her relashionship and how her guy always neglects her and he never sees the pain he's causing her and he never respects her but just neglects her and she's hurting. Then she finally sticks up and says " how could you neglect me, straightup disrepect me, how could you neglect my love" and that shows her strength.. She didnt let him walk all over her...

    General CommentShe gives everything into her relationship with nothing in return. After realizing the situation she finally is able to take control of her life and move on. She wont let him hold her back any more.

    General Commentthis song is awsome . it's about a relashion ship in which the guy used to treat her badly and neglect her (the walls witnised all her pain) then he sometimes tries to apologise to her and that makes her fell more neglected. hse's telling him that all the pain he caused had made her stronger and now she can get over him and go on with her life and go on her own way
