"Love's Not a Competition (But I'm Winning) (Kaiser Chiefs cover)" as written by Nicholas Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, Nicholas Baines, James Rix and Andrew Robert White....
Well, I won't be the one
To disappoint you anymore
And I know I've said all this
So that you heard it all before
The trick is getting you
To think that all this was your idea
And that this is everything you ever wanted
Out of here

Love's not a competition
But I'm winning
I'm not sure
What's truly altruistic anymore
'Cause every good thing that I do is listed
And you're keeping score

Love's not a competition
But I'm winning
Love's not a competition
But I'm winning

Or at least I thought I was
But there's no way of knowing
At least I thought I was
But there's no way of knowing

You know what it's like
When you're new to the game
But I'm not

Well, I won't be the one
To disappoint you
Well, I won't be the one
To disappoint you anymore

Well, I won't be the one
To disappoint you anymore
(Love's not a competition, but I'm winning)
Well, I won't be the one
To disappoint you anymore
(Love's not a competition, but I'm winning)

I won't be the one
To disappoint you anymore

    General Commentoh, and I kinda think the Paramore version's better.

    Idk, maybe it's just preference. And I'm not too fond of British accents in singing...

    General CommentReally nice and catchy acoustic cover of the song. I love it a lot. I find it much better than the original version (no offense to anyone that likes it), because I'm not used to people with accents singing.

    Josh's small part singing in this makes my heart skip a beat everytime...
    His voice is beautiful. I don't know why he doesn't have enough backup parts...I wanna hear more of his voice! hahah.

    General Comment^Yeah, that's what I meant with the accent thing.
    Completely agree with you, xxbreakmedown ... especially with the Josh thing. He really does have an awesome voice. It's half the reason My Heart and Franklin are so good.

    Yeah.

    Peace.

    General Comment^Yeah, sorry about that. I meant English, it's just sometimes I forget about being politically and geographically correct. LOL

    Peace.

    General CommentLovely song. I actually thought it was an acoustic version of their own song, and then realised it was a cover when i brought the Radio 1 Live Lounge CD.

    Ah well, I then listened to both versions and definitely this one is more attractive to listen to. Its powerful but soft at the same time, obviously if it means a lot more to you at the time.

    Either way, Hayley Williams is so fit!! Haha just thought I would add that in!

    General CommentIt's a sort of heartbrek-ish song. But at the same time, it's not... Dunno how to explain it. 'Haunting' describes it perfectly....
