"Dear X (You Don't Own Me)" as written by Kevin Duane Young, Benjamin Glover and Rob Hawkins....
Dear pain, oh, it's been a long time
Remember when you were holding me tied
I would stay awake with you all night
Dear shame, I was safe in your arms
You were there when it all fell apart
I would get so lost in your beautiful eyes

I let you go
But you're still chasing

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you're never gonna break me
I was yours, I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me

Dear hate, I know you're not far
You would wait at the door of my heart
I was amazed at the passion in your cries
Dear anger, you make me so high
You were faithful to show up on time
Such a flame that was burning in your eyes

I let you go
But you're still chasing

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you're never gonna break me
I was yours, I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me
Go ahead, put a target on my forehead
You can fire, but you got no bullets
I was yours, I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me

It's tempting me to look back
But everything that we had together was a lie

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you're never gonna break me
I was yours, I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me
Go ahead, put a target on my forehead
You can fire, but you got no bullets
I was yours, I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me

    My Interpretationi love this song. it is amzing. to me it is about running away from your addictions or sin. dear x-the x represents whatever addiction (porn, drugs, smoking, drinking, ect) and he is saying (x) you dont own me. you will not control my life. (x) the temptation is all ways still around and tempting him "i no your still chasing", "i no your not far" but he has held his ground and not given in "i was yours but im not yours anymore" i personally have been threw this situation and this song is so true its crazy.

    My InterpretationThis song quite literally tells us not to let our human cravings control our lives, like drugs, porn, love, idols, heroes, and to strengthen ourselves against it.
