"Flattery" as written by and Aj Michalka T. James....
Please, don't flatter yourself
You're not the only one
Whose heart has ever fell
Please, don't exaggerate
Don't tell me you're okay
Okay, okay

I will admit if you'll admit it
It's harder than we both thought
It's easier to fall apart
Look where we are
I can forgive it, I can't forget it
You left me here with all these scars
And you can't deny the hardest part: I'm not in your arms

We're hurt more than we appear
The world will never know
We both have taste in tears
My dear
You're denying what I say
Don't act like it's okay
'Cause it's not okay


It's not in the stars!
I'm not sorry, I'm not sorry, I'm not sorry
I will admit if you'll admit it
Just, please, don't flatter yourself
Please, don't flatter yourself

    General CommentI think it's about this guy who is in a relationship with this girl and is getting a total big head because he's going out with her. And she's telling him to come down to earth and stop "flattering" himself.
    And she's also asking him to admit that it isn't as good as they thought it would be and stop lying to himself, "flattering" himself that he is in a strong relationship.

    General CommentWe both have tasty tears, my dear

    it's "tasted" tears.

    haha, tasty.

    i think it's about him leaving her with all these scars, and it's really hard to move on. But they are, and they are staying strong. And for him not to flatter himself about moving on and blah blah blah.

    General CommentThis song is really amazing. It's different because it's so far off of what the whole disney-hollywoodrecords-teeny-bopper genre. It's very deep and emotional and enjoyable to a variety of crowds.
