"Just a Song" as written by and Katy/christy Perry....
so when my voice breaks
its called interpretation when i
held a note, it's cuz i want to
not cuz i feel anything about you
so don't flatter yourself thinking that i love you
make you emotional
from major to the minor when i lose control
i'm not trying to impress you
break it down, did i get your attention
but it's just formula
don't need your validation
validation

This is just a song
The music plays in back
Then it's gone again
This is just a song
The words don't mean a thing
So everytime I sang 'i loved you all along'
remember, remember, this is just a song

now i feel nothing
yes, I'm on auto-pilot
I have sung these words
even sing them when i'm sleeping
just cuz you have showed up here to see me
doesn't mean I'm going home with you this evening
i know december is the month we met
but it rhymes with remember
or did you forget
i was only giving a performance
i had to know that you were in the audience
in the audience

This is just a song
The music plays in back
Then it's gone again
This is just a song
The words don't mean a thing
So everytime I sang 'i loved you all along'
remember, remember, this is just a song

everybody knows that this is just as ong and i don't feel a thing for you
everybody knows that rhythym line and structure doesnt mean i love you

This is just a song
The music plays in back
Then it's gone again
This is just a song
The words don't mean a thing
So everytime I sang 'i loved you all along'
remember, remember, this is just a song

    General CommentIt's basically her trying to prove to someone she knows, maybe an ex or a friend who goes to her shows, that she feels nothing for him. She is saying these love songs aren't about you, I am just a singer doing my job. But you have to wonder who she is trying to convince, this person or herself.

    General Commenti so agree with that explanation. And it's a veryyy good song. You could hear how vulnerable she is in her voice. She's obviously trying to convince herself that she's not falling in love with the guy.
