"Crave You" as written by James Nathan Lyell, Hugo Stuart Gruzman and Giselle Rosselli....
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I stare at you
Why can't I keep you safe as my own?
One moment I have you the next you are gone
Rehearsed steps on an empty stage
That boy's got my heart in a silver cage
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I crave you

I walked into the room dripping in gold
Yeah dripping in gold
I walked into the room dripping in gold
Dripping in gold
A wave of heads did turn, or so I've been told
Or so I've been told
My heart broke when I saw you kept your gaze controlled
Oh I cannot solve

Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I stare at you
Why can't I keep you safe as my own?
One moment I have you the next you are gone
Rehearsed steps on an empty stage
That boy's got my heart in a silver cage
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I crave you

It's true I crave you
Crave you
It's true I crave you

Let's just stop and think, before I lose face
Surely I can't fall, into a game of chase
Around his little finger, that boy has got me curled
I try to reach out, but he's in his own world
This boy's got my head tied in knots with all his games
I simply want him more because he looks the other way

Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I stare at you
Why can't I keep you safe as my own?
One moment I have you the next you are gone
Rehearsed steps on an empty stage
That boy's got my heart in a silver cage
Why can't you want me like the other boys do?
They stare at me while I crave you

I am craving you

    General CommentI think this song is about a beautiful girl who never had a problem with catching boys eyes. Everytime she gets ready for a party she knows she won't have to dance on her own. But there is this one guy she really likes. Once they were making out but she wasn't very nice and she treated him just like the other boys. Later she realized that this was a mistake but he's not interested anymore. She tries to win him back, uses much make-up and dresses very flirty but he gives a shit. It's like she wants what she can't have and that's a terrible feeling.

    TranslationDripping in gold is British slang. To be "dripping in" something means to be wearing a lot of something. In other words, she got all dressed up in her gold jewelry and heads turned but not his.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful and yes so easy to relate to. My boyfriend has depression and when it flares up, pushes me away and ignores me no matter how much I dress up and try to get him to open up

    General CommentOh, I love this song and indeed, so easy to relate to.

    I wish that boy would stare back at me too, and see how much I'd do for him.

    My InterpretationIt's about a girl who likes another girl but the girl doesn't know that it's a girl because it has really short hair and neither are lesbians so it wouldn't work.

    (This is actually the true meaning.)

    General CommentThe dub step version is AMAZING!
    Also IMO if you are dripping in gold & wearing a knock out outfit & everyone else is staring but the guy you want because he keeps his "gaze controlled" he is either just not into you or into other options.
