"What It Was" as written by Antonis Economides, Marc Lee Brown, Christian Franck and Nina Miranda....
What it was or what it is
You took me off where I left it
Guessing and wandering what I did
All through the night and we drift a little

I knew you before
I think you're with me, I'm not sure
Didn't know what it was
Don't you know who I am
'Cause I don't know myself anymore
'Cause I didn't know what it was before
I didn't what it was

What it is or what it was
You took me in when I got off
Forever keeping me just a bit
Back in a way that still tilts a little

I know you before, a feeling, a motion a wave
I look at you now and question the future

Don't you know who I am
'Cause I don't know myself anymore
'Cause I didn't know what it was before
I didn't what it was

    General CommentI think this song is about evaluating a romantic relationship that she is confused about... "What it is"
    "Guessing and wandering what I did
    All through the night and we drift a little"
    They are having problems, and she is wondering if it is her that created this situation that she cant seem to put her finger on.

    I think this song at large is about energy, that unseen thing that we feel, and this person is taking away from her natural energy and she is beginning to wonder about his true intentions..
    "I knew you before
    I think you're with me, I'm not sure
    Didn't know what it was
    Don't you know who I am
    'Cause I don't know myself anymore"

    When you are trying so hard to be open and insightful to a relationship, and that person is just draining your energy, it is very confusing and nothing seems clear, things are so conflicted. I think this song represents that emotion the best.

    Love smoke city ;)
