"How I Feel" as written by and James Patrick/clarkson Messer....
Looks like I made a mess again
Heartbreak everywhere I step
This fire is getting hot again
But I touch the flame 'cause I'm a curious cat
Creeping where I don't belong
Finding out what I knew all along
Crying all alone
And it's all my fault, all my fault

Yeah, I did it again... again

Oh, I'm getting tired of believing
Even sicker of pretending
That it's not so bad, just wait it out
Oh, I think you're feeding me lies again
The only good man left wasn't him
And that's how I feel right now so just let me be
Let me be

It seems every time I find a good man
He's got a good little wife
I'm not jealous but I won't lie
I don't want to hear about your wonderful life
And babies everywhere I look
Trophy wives with their little black books
At this rate I'm gonna end up alone
It's probably all my fault, all my fault

Oh, another dead end again

Oh, I'm getting tired of believing
Even sicker of pretending
That it's not so bad, just wait it out
Oh, I think you're feeding me lies again
The only good man left wasn't him
And that's how I feel right now

Bitter pill that I've swallowed
Just how low can my heart sink
Fairy tales from so long ago
Save them for someone that's not smart enough to know

'Cause I, I'm getting tired of believing
I'm through pretending
Yeah I'm broken and sad so I'll sit this one out
Oh I think you're feeding me lies again
The only good man left wasn't him
And that's how I feel right now

How I feel right now
How I feel right now
How I feel right now
Let me be

How I feel right now
How I feel right now
How I feel right now
Let me be

    General Commenti think this song is just a song that says; i realize that i made a mistake of dating him. and i'm tired of dating jerks. i just want to be left be and not have people tell me that it's my fault cause i knew what i was getting into.

    General Commentthis song sounds like its about her screwing up another relationship yet again and shes pissed about it. or at least thinks its her fault even if it isnt.

    shes bitter that nothings working out and everyone around her everything seems to just fall into place. shes kind of temporarily lost faith in love and just wants everyone to stop talking to her about it.

    General CommentI think it's Kelly saying, "I'm sick of guys. I'll never find a good one, and it's probably all my fault."
    Someone's telling her she's being to dramatic about this, but Kelly just wants to be that way. She's comfortable being kind of dramatic for now. That's why she sings, "That's how I feel RIGHT NOW." She knows this is just a phase. I've had plenty of friends go through this same stage.

    General CommentShe sees happy couples right now and she's sick of hearing and thinking that someday it will be her, and she's tired of pretending that it doesn't bother her. For now, she's going to be upset and pessimistic, and maybe someday she'll be optimistic again, but not right now, so don't even try to make her happy.

    General Comment"Bitter pill that I’ve swallowed
    Just how low can my heart sink

    ^Tell me that part doesn't sound like Lily Allen!!! It does, really. LOL seriously.

    I do like this song. It's one of the better on the album, I think.

    Another one where I like the chorus better than the verses. There aren't very many like this.

    I think gooog and TakeaLook got it best, but all of you pretty much got the meaning.

    General CommentShe's tired of believing that everything in life will be ok.
    'Fairytales from so long ago
    save them for someone that's not smart enough to knoe.'
    She's trying to say that she feels alone, and she's tired of prentending that and people should just let her be.

    General CommentYeah like the others said. It about how she's so sick of getting hurt and mad at herself because she did it to herself. Everyone around her has a good guy and she can't seem to find one. And everyone tells her to just wait and it will come but she's so tired of hearing it because it never happens. And all the good guys are taken so she feels alone and she feels like its all her fault that shes alone.
