"Shallow" as written by and Scott Douglas Victor/brewer Russo....
Well sometimes
It seems you just don't understand
The way I think and who I am
And when I'm
I'm told what I'm supposed to be
You think you know what's best for me

Well I want to see you standing next to me now
Seems you've got nothing much to say
And when you're dying lying next to me now
I'll turn my head and walk away

Sometimes
It seems I might be losing touch
Or maybe I just try to much
Now I
Now I get told I'm crazy
Nothing you could say would phase me now

I want to see you standing next to me now
Seems you've got nothing much to say
And when you're dying lying next to me now
I'll turn my head and walk away

Hey

I walk alone
My thought's aren't always carved in stone
My life revolves according to me
And what you think don't mean a fucking thing to me
Yeah you'll see
I'll make it farther on my own

Well I want to see you standing next to me now
Seems you've got nothing much to say
And when you're dying lying next to me now
I'll turn my head and walk away
I want to see you standing next to me now
Seems you've got nothing much to say
And when you're dying lying next to me now
I'll turn my head and walk away

    General CommentThis song hits so close to home for me. My ex boyfriend won't let me forget him. He keeps coming back into my life just when i start to get over him again. I would really like to turn the tables on him.

    I want to see you standing next to me
    Seems you got nothing much to say
    And when you're dying lying next to me
    I'll turn my head and walk away


    That line is the most important to me. For once i would like to be the one who doesn't care

    General CommentI agree. Ex-boyfriends always make it hard to forget them. Whether its our fault or theirs, it would be nice to sit them down and play this song!!

    Yeah, you'll see

    General Commentit's about being fed up with a relationship. for once you wanna tell the person that you are done with him/her and don't care anymore.
