"Every Glance" as written by Jack Penate and Paul Epworth....
You said I was free to do what I wanted
I believed you, I received you, I did
You stood above me, you watching my words, then cut them down
No-one noticed, no-one protested
Silent manners

Take your hands
from my shoulders and let me stand
I've been trying
my hardest to be a man

Your focussed fingers form a force to reckon with
a point with power.
Come one carelessness
Your eyes can switch with every glance
and when they catch me there's no chance
Medusa

Take your hands
from my shoulders and let me stand
I've been trying
my hardest to be a man
Take your hands
off my shoudlers and let me stand
I've been trying
my hardest to be a man

A liar, a bully, a coward, a thief
A liar, a bully, a coward, a thief

My skin is crawling
My confidence falling
( a liar, a bully, a coward, a thief)

My skin is crawling
My confidence falling¨( a liar ,a bully, a coward, a thief)

My skin is crawling
My confidence falling
(a liar, a bully, a coward, a thief)

My skin is crawling
My confidence..

Take your hands
from my shoulders and let me stand
I've been trying
my hardest to be a man
Take your hands
off my shoulders and let me stand
I've been trying
my hardest to be a man

    You said I was free to do what I wanted,
    I believed you, I received you, I did
    You stood above me watching my words then cut them down,
    No one noticed, no one protested, silent manners.

    Take your hands from my shoulders and let me stand,
    I've been trying my hardest to be a man.

    Your focused fingers form a force to reckon with,
    A point with power come one, carelessness
    Your eyes can switch with every glance
    And when they catch me there's no chance,
    Medusa, Medusa.

    Take your hands from my shoulders and let me stand,
    I've been trying my hardest to be a man.
    Take your hands off my shoulders and let me stand,
    I've been trying my hardest to be a man.

    A coward, a bully, a coward, a thief.
    A liar, a bully, a coward, a thief

    My skin is crawling my confidence falling
    My skin is crawling my confidence falling
    My skin is crawling my confidence..

    Take your hands from my shoulders and let me stand,
    I've been trying my hardest to be a man.
    Take your hands off my shoulders and let me stand,
    I've been trying my hardest to be a man.



    Oh and great song. I think it's about being undermined by someone constantly. I get the feeling Jack is talking about an authorative figure.
