"Cement" as written by and Megan Alexanda Washington....
So what I said is what I said,
and what you said is what you meant.
And when you left my house in the morning,
You wrote your message on the cement.
You put the letters and the numbers under people's feet.
You took all of the dealings and feelings and wrote them on the street.

And everybody, everybody, everybody knows.
And when I went outside and I saw it I froze.
You put my secret and your secret under people's feet.
You remembered what I said and you wrote it on the fucking concrete.

So what we do is what we do for me and you, not everyone.
But outside in the night you were busy writing down what we had done.
You seemed alright last night, but now I know that I was wrong.

And everybody, everybody, everybody knows.
And when I went outside and I saw it I froze.
You put my secret and your secret under people's feet.
You remembered what I said and you wrote it on the fucking concrete.

And I guess you know how people talk,
but it's only words, and it's only chalk,
and I'll feel better maybe, when we get some weather.

And everybody, everybody, everybody knows.
And when I went outside and I saw it I froze.
You remembered what I said and you wrote it on the street, oh no no no.

I guess you know, but it's only words and it's only chalk,
It's only words and it's only chalk
And I guess you know how people talk.

    General Commenther boyfriend went out n told people what they do, things she didnt want anyone else to no "So what we do is what we do for me and you, not everyone". and although she's pretty pissed "You remembered what I said and you wrote it on the fucking concrete" by the end of the song she realises that hey it'll b ok, people will forget it eventually "but it's only words, and it's only chalk,and I'll feel better maybe, when we get some weather" thus the song starts out wiv megan being pissed and as the song goes on she realises it'll b ok but she's still pissed at the guy n quite rightly

    General CommentAnyone else think this is about how her (boyfriend?) spilt a "secret" about her on the Internet?
    Like the Internet is cement because you can't erase it
