"Because" as written by Inara George and Greg Kurstin....
Because, because I'm weary of this melody
Because, because I want to get up off my knees
Because, because I'm tired of chasing you around
Because, because I'm lying prostate on the ground

And when I'm tired I am so very tired
And when it's done it's like I've killed someone

Because, because I'm sick of all the bones you throw
Because, because there's nothing from the seed you sow
Because, because I can't remember why I'm here
Because, because it's all become so crystal clear

And when I'm tired I am so very tired
And when it's done it's like I've killed someone

Because, because, because, because
Because, because, because, because
Because, because, because, because
Because, because, because, because

And when I'm tired I am so very tired
And when it's done it's like I've killed someone

Because, because I'm weary of this melody
Because, because I want to get up off my knees
Because, because I'm tired of chasing you around
Because, because I'm lying prostate on the ground

Because, because I'm sick of all the bones you throw
Because, because there's nothing from the seed you sow
Because, because I can't remember why I'm here
Because, because it's all become so crystal clear

Because, because, because, because
Because, because, because, because

    General CommentI love this song, but does anyone else think it sounds more like she says "lying prostate on the ground" instead of "prostrate"? I mean I know it's not supposed to be prostate, but still. :)

    General CommentI think it's about a woman being fed up with being taken advantage off. "I want to get up off my knees"

    General CommentI believe the song is about a breakup and the "Because because" is in response to the reasons as to why she's choosing to end it.
    And when she says "And when I'm tired, I'm so very tired
    And when it's done, it's like I've killed someone" I think we can all relate. Breaking up with someone never feels that great though it might be necessary. You figuratively "kill" someone in the relationship and it's a tiring process.
