"Ready" as written by Kelly Brianne Clarkson, Aben Eubanks and Jason Halbert....
Frozen, forgetful again
The part where I lose my head
The scene where I'm supposed to speak but instead
I sit and listen again,
I'm stuck with these cards I guess

Leaping from this cliff in my thoughts
I fly like the stones in my heart
Drowning in doubt for what reason
I sit so patiently
Drenched in what you want me to be
I can't escape

I'm ready now oh I'm ready now
Oh I'm ready now come get me

Fearless with cape in hand
Conquer what I need to to mend
Little girls get so broken
But I sit so patiently drenched in what you want me to be
I can't see no escape

I'm ready now oh I'm ready now
Oh I'm ready now come get me

Through with golden roads and perfect love
Too much of your mouth is like too much sun
How I burn, how I burn
I was so patient, waiting for my turn
Fly like stone
As I break every bone
Come get me

I'm ready now oh I'm ready now
Oh I'm ready now come get me

I'm ready now oh I'm ready now
Oh I'm ready now come get me

    General CommentFrozen, forgetful again
    The part where I lose my head
    The scene where I'm supposed to speak
    But instead

    I sit and listen again
    I'm stuck with these cards I guess

    Leaping from this cliff in my thoughts
    I fly like the stones in my heart
    Drowning in doubt
    For what reason?

    I sit so patiently
    Drenched in what you want me to be
    I can't escape

    I'm ready now
    Oh, oh I'm ready now
    Oh, oh I'm ready now
    Come get me

    Fearless with cape in hand
    Conquer what I needed to mend
    Little girls get so broken

    I sit so patiently
    Drenched in what you want me to be
    I can't see no escape

    I'm ready now
    Oh, oh I'm ready now
    Oh, oh I'm ready now
    Come get me

    Through with golden roads and perfect love
    Too much of your mouth is like too much sun
    How I burn, how I burn
    I was so patient, waiting for my turn
    I fly like stone
    Yes, I break every bone
    Come. Get. Me

    I'm ready now
    Oh, oh I'm ready now
    Oh, oh I'm ready now
    Come get me
    I'm ready now
    Oh, oh I'm ready now
    Oh, oh I'm ready now
    Come get me

    General CommentThis is also my favorite song, mainly on her whole All I Ever Wanted Album! But when I first heard the song, I thought to myself "Oh, I can relate to this." Thought she was talking about being patient for true-love to come. What I didn't know was (Like KCFan25 said) this song has nothing to do with that. Yes, it's about a struggle. She also mentioned on a tour, "This song is about me being a press conference, I really did NOT want to be there. Hope y'all enjoy!"

    So to add on what KCFan25 said, she really did NOT want to hear what they had to say. Change, looks, vocals, etc. & change what she wrote from heart.

    Lyric : Frozen forgetful again, the part where I lose my head. The scene where I'm supposed to speak but instead. I sit and listen again. I'm stuck with these cards. I guess. (They won't let her get her words out)

    Lyric : Fearless with cape in hand (she's a idol, icon, roll model) Conquer what needs to be mend. Little girls get soo broken. (Her true fans, have to listen to another BIG POP hit! Not a song they can relate to or girls from small towns get broken, cause the struggle to be a musician) You decide :)

    Also on the lyric : Through with Golden roads and perfect love (Perfect love meaning, I'm sick of writing happy blissful love songs to make the producers happy, I WANT TO WRITE HOW I FEEL)
    too much of your mouth is like too much sun, how I burn? How I burn? I was just patient waiting for my turn (They continue speaking won't let her get her words in)

    General Comment&& this song is also like Sara B. - Love song. She wrote the record company a song. They told her to come back with a Love Song. She got ticked off and wrote them "Love song."
