"Only For Me" as written by Tyler Cordy, Marc Griffin, Matt Reagan, David Dalton, Matthew Warshauer, Camus Celli, Joshua Grant and Paul Conte....
I remember when it used to be easy
Used to look cute watching the TV
Used to lay there with wet hair
After the shower picking what to wear
But now you're dressing up for somebody else
Looking through my glass as the ice melts
Looking at the past just won't help
I just don't know how the chips all fell

Maybe 'cause I didn't follow through
Gave love I didn't follow suit
How you'd say "I'll always follow you"
I remember when it was

Only for me
Only for me
Only for me
Ain't that how it's supposed to be
Only for me
Only for me
Ain't that how it's supposed to be

I remember when it used to be fair
No games just truth or dare
No shame you used to care
You gave the goosebumps I don't wanna share
But now you're giving them to somebody else
Watching TV on somebody's couch
Blouse on the floor in somebody's house
I just don't know how it all went South

Maybe 'cause I got down to much
Too many too down to touch
But with you I never gave enough
I remember when it was

Only for me
Only for me
Only for me
Ain't that how it's supposed to be
Only for me
Only for me
But you know that I'll go on and

Wander 'til I get somewhere
Wander like I just don't care
I'll wander knowing it's not fair
I'll wander, look look looking

Wander 'til I get somewhere
Wander like I just don't care
I'll wander knowing it's not fair
I'll wander, look look looking

I'll wander, 'til I find someone
But it's just not you so I'm just not done
I could make a million calls to new tongues
I could find a million girls, I want one

You could draw a million lines in gold sand
I could walk across and hope to slow dance
A million love letters now turned to dust
And I remember when it was

Only for me
Only for me
Only for me
Ain't that how it's supposed to be
Only for me
Yeah

'Cause I remember when it was
Only for me
Only for me
Only for me
Ain't that how it's supposed to be
Only for me
Only for me
And you know that I'll go

Wander 'til I get somewhere
Wander like I just don't care
I'll wander knowing it's not fair
I'll wander, look look looking

Wander 'til I get somewhere
Like I just don't care
I'll wander knowing it's not fair
I'll wander, look look looking

I'll wander, 'til I find someone
But it's just not you so I'm just not done
I could make a million calls to new tongues
I could find a million girls, I want one

Only for me
Ain't that how it's supposed to be
Only for me
Only for me
Ain't that how it's supposed to be

    Song MeaningOne of the best songs on the album, that's for sure. I'm not sure why this got combined with the lyrics for Flashing Room, though.
    As for the meaning:

    "I remember when it used to be easy
    Used to look cute watching the TV
    Used to lay there with wet hair
    After the shower picking what to wear" ~He is reminiscing, thinking back to their relationship

    "But now you're dressing up for somebody else
    Looking through my glass as the ice melts
    Looking at the past just won't help
    I just don't know how the chips all fell" ~She's with someone else-Where did it all go wrong?

    "Maybe cuz I didn't follow through
    Gave love I didn't follow suit
    How you'd say 'I'll always follow you'" ~Sees his own faults-tries to figure out what happened

    The chorus basically represents him remembering when she made an effort for and loved him-and only him.

    "Wander till I get somewhere
    Wander like I just don't care
    I'll wander knowing it's not fair
    Wander, look look looking
    Wander till I get somewhere
    Wander like I just don't care
    I'll wander knowing it's not fair
    Wander, look look looking" ~Trying to get over her and find someone else

    "Wander, til I find someone
    But it�s just not you so I�m just not done
    I could make a million calls to new tongues
    I could find a million girls, I want one" ~He wants HER

    "You could draw a million lines in gold sand
    I could walk across and hope to slow dance
    A million love letters now turned to dust" ~It's over-forever


    Basically, he is trying to accept that she isn't his anymore. He lost his chance and she's moved on. He wants her to come back...and love only him. I'm pretty sure we can all relate to that. :P
