"Of Confidence" as written by and Cody Michael/czap Payne....
What ya got now, gotta gotta give up
What ya got now, gotta gotta give up
What ya got now
What ya got now

We keep ourselves a mystery
But we provide, provide the clues
So the rest is up to you
And don't forget to check the obvious
We are so serious
So I guess it comes down to how curious you can be

What ya got now, gotta gotta give up
What ya got now, gotta gotta give up
What ya got now
What ya got now

Drama doesn't follow me, it rides on my back
I may be ugly, but they sure love to stare
Drama doesn't follow me, it rides on my back
I may be ugly, but they sure, but they sure,
Love to stare

And you check labels more than the FCC
And these calories are, are killing me
But this is a sticky situation
So keep your chest in the game
And drop your jaw and coax me

What ya got now, gotta gotta give up
What ya got now, gotta gotta give up
What ya got now
What ya got now

Drama doesn't follow me, it rides on my back
I may be ugly, but they sure love to stare
Drama doesn't follow me, it rides on my back
I may be ugly, but they sure, but they sure

This is a party without the people
This is a show without the sound
This is a dance without the steps
Now I gave you the clues so find what I found
This is a party without the people
This is a show without the sound
So I gave you the clues
So find what I found

Drama doesn't follow me, it rides on my back
I may be ugly, but they sure love to stare
Drama doesn't follow me, it rides on my back
I may be ugly, but they sure love to stare

    My InterpretationHere’s how I interpret it: They are two good friends (boy and girl), and she has plans to go forward with her life and he is still struggling with his purpose and his identity. Although they are friends, they are drifting apart in separate directions. He recognizes that his life is small and almost meaningless. Because she cannot accept that, she pities him. She wishes he could find purpose. She ends up having sex with him, and he gives in although he knows it is not a good idea. She isn’t doing it for the right reasons, and he is confused and reckless: causing him to fall into the act. At first he is ok. Then he realizes the ramifications. Later he is broken up about it. He has mixed feelings about her. He ran away. He is confused and broken, and he finds her almost ignorant and manipulative. He wishes he could take it back and he wishes even more that she would understand him and accept him for who he is. He doesn’t want her to try to change him. She cannot see eye-to-eye with him, and he is frustrated. But after all of it he still cares for her- even though he may not want to He cannot help it. He has mixed feelings, and has a lot of remorse, but in the end- he cares for her and realizes that she has been through a lot of trauma. He realizes that although they may not have mutual understandings, he still cares for her. This is a bittersweet feeling to him. In the end he just wants her to know how he feels about it all and want’s things to go back to normal: even though he knows it can’t. So he’s basically just telling the story and voicing his thoughts in full understanding that it won’t change anything. But it’s a great song!

    General Commentwow. this song is amazing. i think its about likeing someone so much and havign sex with them only to realize that maybe its not what you wanted because it didnt mean as much or anything at all to the other person. becoming kind of obsessed with the person because you thoguth you shared something and the other person doesnt think twice about it.
    at the end i think the end is about him telling the girl that all the problems she had with boys are all because of her own self. he wished he well but realizes he does really want her anymore because of the way she made him feel.

    idk that just my interpretation of it.

    General Commentthis to me seems like its about two best friends. a boy and a girl. they have been through a lot together in the past and both remain friends as their lives are changing. one of them doesnt seem to have any idea where they are going with their life and the other is trying to take back past mistakes and do things right for once. they have both seen eachother get their hearts broken and have seen eachother in deep messes. theres so much intensity in the friendship and they both go to each other when they need it. so something happens between them. they have sex. hook up one night. and realize that maybe there were feelings there all along. but because of where theyve been and where they are they cant have anything more together. they talked about it and saw everything from a different perspective. are these just the nights that we stayed for? now ever since that happend theres those few nights when they need eachother. when their feeling the most love for eachother. something happens between them agian.
