"All To Myself" as written by and Edith Giovanna Gassion Mack David....
I don't patronize, I realize
I'm losing and this is my real life.
I am half asleep, and I am wide awake.
This habit is always so hard to break.

I don't want to be the bad guy,
I've been blaming myself and I think you know why.
I'm killing time, and time's killing you
Every way that I do.

Did you say please just follow me?
I thought you wanted me.
'Cause I want you all to myself.
I can try to suck it up,
I just can't suck it up.
Make me feel like some one else

Please just follow me.
I thought you wanted me.
'Cause I want you all to myself.
I can try to suck it up,
I just can't suck it up.
Make me feel like some one else

I'm under the gun, you're like the only one.
I just can't decide what I'm running from.
This isn't what I wanted, but
I can't keep my filthy fucking mouth shut.

It's not enough, it's never enough.
I wish can't breathe without getting it stuck.
Can't focus it, but I try it
Over and over again.

Did you say please just follow me?
I thought you wanted me.
'Cause I want you all to myself.
I can try to suck it up,
I just can't suck it up.
Make me feel like some one else

Please just follow me?
I thought you wanted me.
'Cause I want you all to myself.
I can try to suck it up,
I just can't suck it up.
Make me feel like some one else

please just follow me?
I thought you wanted me.
'Cause I want you all to myself.
I can try to suck it up,
I just can't suck it up.
Make me feel like

Did you say please just follow me?
I thought you wanted me.
'Cause I cant tell someone else
I'm trying to suck it up,
I just can't fuck it up.
I want you all to my self

Did you say please just follow me?
I thought you wanted me.
'Cause I want you all to myself.
I can try to suck it up,
I just can't suck it up.
Make me feel like some one else

    General CommentThis song holds a lot of meaning for me.

    I met this guy that was different from anyone I'd ever met. We'd decided to have an open relationship. The first time I made out with this guy, I told him about it, and I could tell he was hurt. He said he didn't want to do it this way anymore. I didn't either. I'm one of those people who was holding out sex for the right person. I met that person at 21 and we both lost our virginity to each other. We dated for six months. His grandfather was terminally ill so he had to move a plane ride away. I've always had a lot of guys like me, and I've had crushes on them. I told my boyfriend all the feelings I had about everyone. I didn't want to hide anything from him. He was the only person I trusted enough to be with. He never felt good enough for me, like all the other guys were better than him - older, smarter, hotter, etc. None of them had his heart. I really missed him being away and did something horrible. I was plastered one night and had oral with my housemate. I told my boyfriend right away. He was so hurt, but he forgave me right away. While we were doing distance, he got distant. He told me this song All to myself reminded him of me. A few weeks later, he broke up with me, and started dating this girl in his city. He put me on a pedestal, and never let me see how much I was hurting him. I never really understood it till now, how much he meant to me. He would have done anything for me, and he wanted me to want him and no one else. He kept blaming himself for not being as amazing as the other guys in my life. He tried to suck it up, and forgive me about the incident with my housemate but he never really did. He tried but he just couldn't suck it up. I didn't understand what I had. Now the tables have turned. He's seen the worst side of me, now he deserves to see my best. I'm going to treat him the way I should have always treated him, but this time as my best friend, not my boyfriend. He is still the best thing that has ever happened to me. He holds contempt for me right now, but his true forgiveness and love as a friend will be my salvation. I'm going to become the person that he deserves. One day at a time.

    General CommentThis song really helped me because I fell in love with my friends girlfriend and it turns out she felt the same way. But because of everything we couldn't be together, so we tried being friends. That didn't work I tried to keep sucking it up but I just kept fucking up, cause I wanted her all to myself.

    General Commentisn't it "I'll try to suck it up, I just can't fuck it up"? It sounds like that.
    Oh, and I think this song is about a guy who always screws up with this girl he loves, and he's screwed up so much this time that she's like "whatever, dude" and she's thinking about leaving him for some other guy, but he loves her so much. He just wants her all to himself, and he's trying to tell her that he wants her and that he's fucking up because of it. He tries to suck it up and deal with it, that he's not good enough, but he can't. I loooove the music video, by the way. So awesome.

    General Commenti agree with cashe

    i have a girlfriend who i want to be with and hang out with so much, but shes always busy with work, and with friends, and because i want to be with her so much, i will always get jealous, and mad at her and "fuck it up".

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who dumped a guy, then tries to be friends but because he still loves her its impossible for him and every time he tries to tell her.."...I wish I could breathe without getting this stuck" he always fucks up, but he'll try "....over and over again.." I love the lyric "I'm killing time and time's killing you, every way that I do" ...as if shes standing there rolling her eyes with her arms crossed saying "...you just kill me". Josh Ramsey rules! The music video is soooo cute!!!!!

    Song MeaningWhen I hear this song I sorta think that the girl is sending the guy mixed signals (well it could work vice versa too, with a guy sending mixed signals). The guy is confused and thinking how 'Did you say please just follow me.I thought you wanted me' and how if she wants him, he wants her all to himself; he doesn't want her to just have a fling with him...or multiple flings. He wants her to be his, and his alone, if they are going to have a relationship.
    He feels like he's losing at life cus he can't seem to win over this girl and he sorta blames himself for it cus he can't seem to not screw up. But at the same time he sorta bames her for the mixed signals. He wonders if he can simply 'suck it up' and move on, but he wants to see what can happen to their relationship cus he was certain that she did want him.
    Not sure if this makes much sense *shrugs*. I've got a vague idea bur I can't seem to put it all into words properly. The song rocks though ^_^
