"Everything You're Not" as written by Lindy Robbins, Demi Lovato and Toby Gad....
I've been bruised and I've been broken
Can't believe that I put up with all this pain
I've been used and I was choking on the promise
I would never fall again

I used to sing to your twisted symphony
The words that had me trapped inside your misery
But now I know
The reason why I couldn't breathe

Cause all I want is everything you're not
So go ahead and slam the door
Cause you can't shut me out
And no I don't, I don't care what you say
Cause all I really, all I really want
Is everything you're not

Everything you're not not not

Your darkness was my weakness but it turns out
That it only went so deep
A meaningless diversion that is all that you
Ever meant to me

And I am done with your twisted symphony
The words that had me sound like stolen poetry
I tore the pages and I can finally breathe

Cause all I want is everything you're not
So go ahead and slam the door
Cause you can't shut me out
And no I don't, I don't care what you say
Cause all I really, all I really want
Is everything you're not

I want a gentleman who treats me like a queen
I need respect, I need love
Nothing in between

I will not spell it out for you if you can't see
Cause you're not worthy, you don't deserve me
A now I'm gone

Everything you're not, not, not
Everything you're not, not, not

Cause all I want is everything you're not
So go ahead and slam the door
Cause you can't shut me out
And no I don't, I don't care what you say
Cause all I really, all I really want
Is everything you're not

Never gonna break my heart again
Never gonna see your face again
Never wanna feel this way again

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who continuously led her on ('I used to sing to your twisted symphony, the words that had me sound like stolen poetry). however, he was hurting her and hurting her and eventually she decides that he's not worth all the heartbreak. she wants someone who will respect her and who won't hurt her like he has; basically, she wants someone who is everything that the guy wasn't for her.

    I can really relate to this song, so it's one of my favorites from her.

    General CommentHe has hurt her feelings over and over again. All she wants is for him to be everything is he isn't.
