"Desperate Now" as written by Marcus Eliopulos, Walter Flakus, Christopher Hall, James Eric Sellers and Andy Kubiszewski....
I keep breaking all the promises
That I keep making to myself
You'd think by now that I'd be over this
Instead I'm feeling sorry for myself

So why does everything feel so desperate now
I should be feeling so alive
But it feels like something's missing
Something's wrong somehow
It feels like something
Deep inside has died

I keep breaking all the promises
That I keep making to myself
But the promises mean nothing to me anymore

Circling the drain...
Spiraling to hell...
So why do I feel desperate now
Why do I feel like dying
Why do I feel desperate now
Why do I feel desperate now

    General CommentI remember once my ex and I were having a fight, and both of us were really sad and upset... she had the stereo on and was listening to this song. I walked into the room, picked her up, and started dancing with her, trying to sing the lyrics. It was kinda pathetic, but it was my way of showing her that I cared and I didn't know where I would have been without her.
