"Split Personality" as written by and Edmonds/abney/moore....
I do not trust, so I cannot love
(Can't no man be trusted)
Oh no no no
And I would not dare to open up
(This life of yours is dusted Pink)
Well my rent's past due and now my car won't start, I hate the bus
(Well aren't you glad you have somebody to talk to)
Tell me what do they see when they look at me
Do they see my many personalities

Can you help me
Does anybody hear me
Can they even see me
This is my reality, oh oh

(Can it be my turn now, is it my turn Pink)
Said I'll say it again, you're my only friend
(I protect you from the world, I basically protect you from yourself)
Though I can't go on, I'm not satisfied with this being the end
(This is just the beginning)
Tell me why can't I just reach up and simply touch the sky
Tell me why can't I spread my arms and fly and fly and fly
Tell me why can't I say this, why can't I do that
Tell me what do they want from me, tell me how to act

Can you help me
Does anybody hear me
Can they even see me
This is my reality, oh oh

Can you help me
Does anybody hear me
Can they even see me
This is my reality, oh oh

Can you help me
Does anybody hear me
Can they even see me
This is my reality, oh oh

So I'm putting it all on the table
(Tell em' Pink)
You don't know me well enough to label me, sick, or even disturbed
When you break it down I'm just two girls
Trying to blend, trying to vibe
(Trying)
Trying to live just one life
(So hard)
Everybody's got insanities I got a split personality
Tell me why can't I just reach up and simply touch the sky
(Why can't you)
Tell me why can't I spread my arms and fly and fly and fly
(You can)
Tell me why can't I say this, why can't I do that
(Just do it)
Tell me what do they want from me, tell me how to act
(I can't, I can't)

Can you help me
Does anybody hear me
Can they even see me
This is my reality, oh oh

Can you help me
Does anybody hear me
Can they even see me
This is my reality, oh oh

Can you help me
Does anybody hear me
Can they even see me
This is my reality, oh oh

Can you help me
(Talk to me, talk to me, don't ignore me, I can't take it)
Do you hear me
Do you see me every time
(Oh calm down, it's not that serious, we'll be just fine without them)
It's all mine it's my reality it's just too much for me
(You're my friend, you're my friend Pink! Pink!)

    General Commentthis song used to mean so much to me an i couldnt stop listening to it, i even rewrote the lyrics the way i interpreted them. even though im not much into pink anymore this is an excellent song. i think its basically about this girl who is really confused, she is having a tough time living on her own, she feels like there are 2 people inside of her an she's not sure how to act, she wants to know what people think of her...

    General CommentI think this song is completely about trying to please people and get them to like you despite what you are on the inside or the outside. Pink is so damn cute and writes some kick ass lyrics. I think she has led a pretty intense life at her young age.

    General CommentI agree with Caramia8 on this song.. I think it's about a girl who's two personalities are 1) Trying to please others so she fits in and has friends 2)Not wanting to fit in, telling herself that she's all she needs.. she doesn't need friends. It's a hard question, Do you change yourself to conform or do you be yourself and risk having no friends? I think at the end the narrator (pink, if she's writing this about herself) has given up listening to herself and is starting to conform. I used to think this song was about a person with some psychological problem.. But i don't know anymore.

    General Commenti agree with everyone but in pinks point of view, i think its exactly how she felt at the time. i mean back then when the whole cant take me home album came out her hair was short literally pink and she was rnb and looked like one, but i think that she didnt know who she was and had some sort of rocker inside her. there are times you just dont no who u are, and then obviously now, she let go of the whole rnb and now i think she fits herself perfectly. GO PINK! cant take me home is my favourite album ever.
