"One Foot Wrong" as written by Alecia B Moore and Linda Perry....
Am I sweating
Or are these tears on my face?
Should I be hungry?
I can't remember the last time that I ate
Call someone, I need a friend to talk me down

But one foot wrong and I'm gonna fall
Somebody gets it, somebody gets it
But one foot wrong and I'm gonna fall
Somebody gets it, somebody gets it

All the lights are on but I'm in the dark
Who's gonna find me? Who's gonna find me?
Just one foot wrong
You'll have to love me when I'm gone

Does anyone see this?
Lucky me, I guess I'm the chosen one
Color and madness
First in line I put my money down
Some freedom is the tiniest cell in town

But one foot wrong and I'm gonna fall
Somebody gets it, somebody gets it
But one foot wrong and I'm gonna fall
Somebody gets it, somebody gets it

All the lights are on but I'm in the dark
Who's gonna find me? Who's gonna find me?
Just one foot wrong
You'll have to love me when I'm gone

Some people find the beauty in all of this
I go straight to the dark side near this
If it's it bad is it always my fault?
Did somebody bring me down?
Did somebody bring me down?
Did somebody bring me down?

One foot wrong, I'm gonna fall
Put one foot wrong and I'm gonna fall
Put one foot wrong and I'm gonna fall
Somebody gets it, somebody gets it
Just one foot wrong and I'm fall
Somebody gets it, somebody gets it

All the lights are on but I'm in the dark
Who's gonna find me? Who's gonna find me?
Just one foot wrong
You'll love me when I'm gone

Have to love me when I'm gone
Love me when I'm gone
You'll have to love me when I'm gone, yeah
You'll have to love me when I'm gone

    General CommentWOW. I havnt listened to this yet, but relate so much....its not really suicide i dont think. It's talking about how she can see what we are doing to the world, and she can see how wrong we have all gone, but everyone else thinks things are fine...
    she's sayingshe cant take seeing everything that we are doing to eachother and someone needs to undestand. This is just beautiful...gonna be my favourite i think.

    General Commentit could be about acid if that's true, but also think it can be about depresion about not wanting to do anything cause doing something else wrong will get you deeper than were you are. But i definatly see hwo it can be about bad tripping.

    Song MeaningThere are several layers to this song, open to many interpretations. I'll take a crack at it...
    In the first verse, she is becoming conscious after taking a hallucinagen. She is upset, and still a bit high. Putting one foot wrong means taking an action that would lead to death (weather deliberate or accidental), possibly taking more drugs to escape how she's feeling. About the color and madness that she can only see, it's the hallucinagen. Shs puts her money down to buy it, in hopes to escape from the feeling badly, knowing it's not entirely her fault, and that someone else has contributed to her feeling this way. She's in the dark because she has closed her eyes, shuting out external stimuli, and hoping a friend will show to guide her through this bad trip and sad emotion. Some freedom is the tiniest cell in town, well, a coffin is pretty tiny of a cell. A psych ward also has small cells. To escape strained emotions, freedom may be found in death, hence you'll have to love her when she's gone. Or perhaps to be committed to a facility, she won't be alone, and will have a fighting chance to get through how's she feeling. She doesn't want it to end this way, she wants someone to reach out to her, to help her feel good again. Well, that's my interpretation anyway, for what it's worth.
