"You Don't Belong" as written by and Christopher A. Daughtry....
With time to kill and an empty tomb
I always find a way to pass the time with you
Dark and smoky rooms, I can hardly stand the fumes

Telling me that you mean no harm
You stand me up like a crutch, another arm
But only when I'm gone have I been away too long

No, you don't belong to me, I think you lied to me
And with my back against this wall, it's hard to be strong
No, you'd tell me anything, look what you've done to me
Still I tell myself that tomorrow you'll be long gone

Any given time or place I never will forget the disgrace on your face
So full of love, will it ever be enough?
Ten feet tall and bullet proof I never thought that I had a thing to lose
Well, it looks like after all, I'm gonna have to choose

No, you don't belong to me, I think you lied to me
And with my back against this wall, it's hard to be strong
No, you'd tell me anything, look what you've done to me
Still I tell myself that tomorrow you'll be long gone

You help pass the time, but I'm doing fine on my own
So there's no good reason why to live such a lie
Tell me have I been gone away too long?

No, you don't belong to me, I think you lied to me
And with my back against this wall, it's hard to be strong
No, you'd tell me anything, look what you've done to me
Still I tell myself that tomorrow you'll be long gone

You don't belong to me, I think you lied to me
With my back against this wall, it's hard to be strong
You'd tell me anything, look what you've done to me
Still I tell myself that tomorrow you'll be long gone
Long gone

    General CommentThis song is about addictiion to someone or something.And thinking that you need them to get by "Stand me up like a crutch, another arm." Then realizing that it or they are just putting your back against the wall,and that you make it on your own.

    General CommentThe great thing about certain songs is that they can mean something completely different depending on the situation you are in.
    To me, because of a situation I am currently in, it seems to be about someone who has fallen in love with someone and then come to find out that the other person is really married.
    I believed that he was in a bad marriage and that he was trying to get out but he used me like a crutch, lied to me, and would tell me anything to get me to stay and continue to wait for him. I heard all the lies and all the apologies.
    But in the end I had to choose, because I am stronger than that and deserve so much better.

    General Commenti loooove this song.
    the chorus is:

    ou don't belong to me/ I think you lied to me
    And with my back against this wall, its hard to be strong
    You'd tell me anything/ Look what you've done to me
    And still I tell myself that tomorrow you'll belong,
    go on.
    gone.

    General CommentThe very beginning of the song kinda reminds me of Breathe Into Me from Red. Very good song to start off the album (I don't like slow starts).
