"In Demand" as written by Sharleen Spiteri, Dallas Austin and John / Mcelhone....
We were together i was blown away,
just like paper from a fan,
but you would act like i was just a kid,
like we were never gonna last.

CHORUS
But now i've got someone who cares for me, yeah, he wrote my name in silver sands.
I think you know you've lost the love of your life
and you said "i was the best you've ever had",
because I'm in demand,
you're thinking of the way you should have held my hand
and all the times you said you didn't understand,
you never had our love written in your plans,
but now I'm in demand.

don't ever think you saw the best of me,
there's a side you'll never know,
coz love and loving are two different things, set your sights far too low.
CHORUS
Its only when i fall asleep,
i see that winning smile,
then my dreams just move along,
you've lost the race by miles.

    General CommentOkay, this song, eh, I don't know anything about it or whatever. All I know is that Alan Rickman is in the video and it makes me want to give him a good rogering. That is all.

    General CommentThe video is indeed very sexy. I like the song because it's so confident and teasing.

    My InterpretationThis song reminds me of my ex, I was so in love with him he was my everything and we were good together just not really relationship good, more best friend good. Now I'm in an amazing relationship with someone I adore and have fallen in love with, me and my ex are still best friends but I sometimes wonder whether we could have ever worked out. He was never prepared for a relationship as much as I was, he never treat me like a girlfriend, perhaps it was just young love. But this song will always remind me of him. I love this song nevertheless.

    To me it has that 'you had me, you lost me' vibe to it. Basically about a woman in a new amazing relationship looking back at her past relationship in which she was besotted with someone, and really thought he was the one.. but he messed it up and let her go for good. And now he probably regrets it.
