"What About Me" as written by Matthew Bair and Emily Osment....
The city is sleeping, but I'm still awake
I'm dreaming, I'm thinking what happened today is it right?
I fold into the night
The flashbacks the pictures the letters and songs
The memories the heart that you carved on the wall
Its a shame, now that nothings the same

Now the bridges are burned and we're lost in the wind
Its time that we sink or swim

What about you
What about me
What about fairy tale endings
Were you just pretending to be
And I'm wondering
What if we tried
What if I cried
What if its better tomorrow
What if I followed your eyes
I'm wondering
What about me?

You said it, you meant it, you hung up the phone
The talking in circles it set it stone
You were gone, we were wrong all along
Now the past is the past and the bruises may fade
These scars are here to stay

What about you
What about me
What about fairy tale endings
Were you just pretending to be
I'm wondering
What if we tried
What if I cried
What if its better tomorrow
What if I followed your eyes
I'm wondering
What about me?

Stay away
You'll fade away
I'm not afraid anymore

What about you
What about me
What about fairy tale endings
Were you just pretending to be
I'm wondering
What if we tried
What if I cried
What if its better tomorrow
What if I followed your eyes
I'm wondering
What about me?

The city is sleeping, but I'm still awake (what about me)
I'm dreaming, I'm thinking what happened today is it right?

    General Commentshe is wondering if she did anything to mess up the relationship. and if she did these different things, what would have happened and if it would change anything that happened over the phone when he told her that they were wrong all along. in the beginning he told her all these stories about them, and she's remembering what happened and looking at the heart with their names in it that he carved in the wall. later in the song she realizes that she's better off without him and that if he didn't talk to her than she could get over him much sooner.
