"I Came Around" as written by Robert Wells, Amie Miriello and Jay Dmuchowski....
La, da, da, da, da, da, yeah
Hold me down, don't ever let me go
I'm a photograph of someone who used to care
I'm a dropout, think about it, baby, that ain't cool
You knew me then and I'm headed straight back there

I shoulda loved you more and I shoulda been more ready
But I'm learning as I go, don't you know
Every day's when it hurts so bad
Everybody changes with a chance and I came around

La, da, da, da, da, da, da
Sleepless nights, drownin' in alcohol
When it comes to mind, blood rushes to my head
Like a sad song all along, I'm the one who's scared
The won who lost and a fool to pay the cost

I shoulda done my best and I shoulda loved you steady
But I'm learning as I go, don't you know
Every,day's when it hurts so bad
Everybody changes with a chance

Yeah, I'm learning as I go, don't you know
Every day's when it hurts so bad
Everybody changes with a chance and I came around

Da, da, da, da, da, da, yeah
Mmm
I came around
La, da, da, da, da, da
La, da, da, da, da, da

I shoulda loved you more and I shoulda been more ready
And I should've changed before it really was too late
Oh, but, baby, that's before everything just all fell down

But I'm learning as I go, don't you know
Every day's when it hurts so bad
Everybody changes with a chance

Yeah, I'm learning as I go, don't you know
Every day's when it hurts so bad
Everybody changes with a chance, with a chance

And I'm learning as I go, don't you know
Every day's when it hurts so bad
Everybody changes with a chance, with a chance

And I'm learning as I go, don't you know
Every day's when it hurts so bad
Everybody changes with a chance, I came around

La, da, da, da, da, da, da
I came around
La, da, da, da, da, da, da

    General CommentI think this song is about regret for one's personal shortcomings, which have been largely overcome. The song takes responsibility for the shortcomings, that were the reason that the individual who is the audience overlooked that person, but things have changed, and even though it's too late, the record is being set straight: I came around.

    There is a tremendous need to recognize how much pain there is in coping with reality, but the romantic aspect is that if it were possible to go back, that would be the desire. The song opens with the most emphatic wish to go back and do things differently, and I think that the target for these regretful feelings is learning just how much he/she meant, as though they have no idea that a thought was ever given, through the years…it's a plea to the importance of the relationship, and the desire to simply seek recognition for that.

    Great songwriting and singing. Amie's style is unique, and her songs make me want to understand them.

    General CommentIts about being seen by everyone, your peers, in a certain way because of something youve done in the past, and trying to overcome that and getting people to see you now. I relate to it in a sense that Ive made some mistakes, and all i want isthe poeple that i fucked up to see me now, for the better person i am compared to then.
