"Faded" as written by and Jessica/origliasso Origliasso....
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 your perfect box
You let me slip between the cracks

Now I'm faded into someone else
Made me someone I don't wanna be
Yeah I'm faded, my true colour's gone
Like a picture nobody sees

I'll bet you don't, don't even know my favourite 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

Now I'm faded into someone else
Made me someone I don't wanna be
Yeah I'm faded, my true colour's gone
Like a picture nobody sees
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 taking 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 ruin my whole life down
So you can watch me fade away

You try to fit, fit me in your perfect box
You let me slip between the cracks
Now I'm faded...

...Into someone else
Made me someone I don't wanna be
Yeah I'm faded, my true colour's gone
Like a picture nobody sees
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 taking it too well

Faded, hated
Slipping away as I disappear in the dark
Faded, hated
So far away from who I was at the start

    General CommentTo me this song means that in the world now days, people try to be like others in order to fit in. But considering thats not who you really are. You have "faded into someone you don't wanna be." So you should just continue to follow Gods lead & live life by his word & wonderous things can happen!

    General Commentto me this sounds like a stupid manipulating boyfrannn. yah, i dont know how to spell manipulating.
    he wants her to be perfect to show off to his friends.
    she cant be herself around him.
    i personally havent felt this all my ex-boyfrannns are really cool and still close friends.
    but i could see how it could be really annoying.
