everyone says itll laugh like you
everyone says itll get your smile
well im the only one who knows you never loved me baby
not a single solitary time
not a single solitary time

everyone says itll have your temper
everyone says itll have your eyes
well im the only one who knows where you were sleeping baby
and i really wouldnt be surprised
i really wouldnt be surprised

everybody tells me that im crazy
saying im too young to have a baby
but maybe the jokes on you this time
maybe the jokes on you this time

and everyone will say that im a liar
everyday the swallowing gets tighter
keeping this a secret has been murder
and id like to get on with my life
id like to get on with my life

everyone says itll laugh like you
everyone says itll get your smile
well i dont even know if youre the father
but there isnt anyway its mine

    General CommentI read your thoughts, addnamehere, and then I went back to the video Amanda made for Not Mine in October and looked at the comments I'd posted... what I said was kinda similar to what you said, particularly this: "Simply: I don't know who you are, but what I am is not me." Here are the comments I left on the video:

    I wonder if this song is supposed to be about "the father" putting tainted thoughts into Amanda's mind ("the baby"), and Amanda isn't sure if those are his own beliefs or just what someone else brainwashed him to believe, but they definitely aren't her own, and yet she's thinking them...what do you guys think?

    I thought that because I don't think the song is literally about her having a baby, I think the baby represents something inside of her (her thoughts or feelings on certain things, perhaps?) that someone put there (the father...which could just be someone attempting to make her think things / brainwash her.

    And she's not sure if he's really the "father" or if someone else just brainwashed him and passed to her someone else's thoughts...but she's saying they're not hers, even though they're in her.

    Am I making sense? Heh...I think she's says, at one point, "Everybody tells me that I'm crazy, saying I'm too young to have a baby." Could this mean people think she's too young to have a valid view on an important world issue?
