"Murder" as written by Justin R. Timberlake, James Edward Ii Fauntleroy, Jerome Harmon, Timothy Z. Mosley, Shawn C. Carter and Chris Godbey....
One single dose of your medicine
You tell me to leave but I come back again
I don't see what all the fuss is about 'cause I'm okay
Soon you will see that I got ability to get my ways

So don't keep me in the dark 'cause I'll the find the light (find the light)
Don't keep me in the the dark 'cause I'll find the light (don't don't don't)
I said don't keep in the dark 'cause I'll find the light (find the light)
Don't keep in the dark, don't keep in the dark

I was alone until I found Johnny
He was a good boy until he got behind me
No she didn't, yes she did!

I got a monkey on my back
He helping me get it off, he helping me get it off
I got a monkey on my back
He helping me get it off, he helping me get it off

So don't keep me in the dark 'cause I'll the find the light (find the light)
Don't keep me in the the dark 'cause I'll find the light (don't don't don't)
I said don't keep in the dark 'cause I'll find the light (find the light)
Don't keep in the dark, don't keep in the dark

They told me to get my motherfuckin' hands up
But I was handcuffed to the bed and couldn't get em up

I'm your sunshine, sunrise (you're my sunshine)
You make it sound easily for me to cry (so easily for me to cry)
I'm your sunshine, come get by
My fears go black in the moonlight

I got a monkey on my back
He helping me get it off, he helping me get it off
I got a monkey on my back
He helping me get it off, he helping me get it off

I got a monkey on my back
He helping me get it off, he helping me get it off
I got a monkey on my back
He helping me get it off, he helping me get it off

So don't keep me in the dark 'cause I'll the find the light (find the light)
Don't keep me in the the dark 'cause I'll find the light (don't don't don't)
I said don't keep in the dark 'cause I'll find the light (find the light)
I said don't keep in the, I said don't keep in the dark

I get away with it, I get away it
Ah
I get away with it, I get away it
They say I get away with murder
They say I get away with murder
They say I get away with murder

    General CommentThis song's probably about her having an affair with someone or something, and getting away with it. :)
    Or maybe about drugs, simply because 'monkey on my back' is often a reference to 'on drugs'.

    Just a thought...

    General CommentWow,
    I'm the first to write about this song.
    Well, I did some analyzing between the song
    "outta my head" & murder.
    i think ashlee simpson has a disorder.
    it;s easier to tell by this song, but if you hear her
    song outta my head it all connects.
    she;s hearing voices.

    anyways this song is absolutely amazing,
    let me know what you think of what i said.
    please feel free to disagree + argue with me.

    General CommentI think is about someone who was so dowwwwwwn and everybody was hurting but she come back better than ever and she got her abilities to get her ways and not let anybody to put her down again.

    Maybe it's about SNL, she knew how to get away with all the shit media+people was saying about her. She is careless about what people say, that's what she thought me and it's what i learned from her, britney and miley :)
