[Verse 1]
Wake up every morning to the sound of the radio screaming
6:30, 7:30, 8 o'clock and I got to leave
Walk out on the street with nothing on except the shame of last night
And a number in my hand of a man I don't really need

[Chorus]
Where do I fit in
Where is my place here
What do I need to say, what do you want to hear
Where do I fit in
If she's in your bed
Where is my beautiful

[Verse 2]
Late night, long day, doesn't make much difference to me anyway
You called, I answered, but baby I'm only half awake
Hush little one with you here everything is going to be okay
Is all you say but what if things don't go that way

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
It's over, we both know, we're both tired of playing the parts
I said goodbye, you said oh well nothing's really lost
Call every now and then just to hear your voice talk to me
You still say everything's alright but it's not and that's something that you're too blind to see

[Chorus 2x]

    General CommentI really love this song. I have become such a Lennon fan since hearing this. The version with Travis Meeks is really awesome as well.

    To me this song is about that awkward period after a break-up. I think she's broken up with this guy and she wants for him to still be in her life but yet she's still healing from the break-up and it pains her to see him moving on. She misses everything they had but knows that the break-up was what was best. He's moving on and she's still stuck and she doesn't know where she fits into his life anymore now that they aren't together. So now I think she's at the point where she's wondering if she has to cut him off from her life completely in order to move on.

    Anyway that's what I hear but I guess it's different for everyone.

    General CommentI think I possibly give this song meaning since it rings true to me. It sounds as though it's about someone in a relationship that is long distance but though she loves the guy and he loves her they are still sleeping with other people. They keep talking about the time when she'll move out there and they'll be together and she's willing to give up all those other guys now. Still, he keeps putting it off and saying that things will be great once she's there but he's not willi to take the steps that he needs to to bring them together. So she sleeps with other men out of pain and hurt and wonders where her place is in his life while he's still sleeping with another woman far away. Finally, though she loves him, she simply can't live that way anymore and calls it off. Only then does she see that he won't even fight to keep her.

    General CommentThis is possibly one of the greatest examples of how the music is built around the lyrics. Awesome the way this song falls together. The acoustic version available from her website (lennononline.com) is really good too, but I still like it better plugged in.

    Anyway, meaning. I think this song is about her being a mistress to some guy who's getting two women at once. She's pretty much there for one thing and one thing only, to him. She'd hoped to get something more, but it became obvious that it wasn't going to happen, she got tired of "Playing the parts" and left. He was just like "Whatever" to her, but she knows he's still broken over it.
