"Been It" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
Baby boy
Your face is pretty and your life's a toy
Master man
I'm never better than your latest plan

Poor donee
what are you gonna try to be
where are you gonna go without me now
I've been your mother I've been your father

who can ask me for more
I've been your sister I've been your mistress
maybe I was your whore
who can ask me for more

Superstar
I've tried to educate your childish heart
I made your bed
and I was in it when your faith was dead

poor donee
what are you gonna try to be
where are you gonna go without me now
Sweetiepie

I'm you personal pro, you know
you know what number to try when to cry

    General Commentto me, this song is about somebody who was always there for a lover, yet the other person didn't value this as much as they should've.

    General CommentFrom the CD insert, the last line of the chorus is:
    maybe I was your whore

    I agree that this song is about giving your all for someone and them just never stepping up to giving back or even growing into their potential.

    General CommentThis song always comes back into my life. It's about a girl (at least in this situation, I can see a guy in this situation too) who supports her lover in everything they do without asking for anything in return... and in return she gets nothing.

    So. Damn. True.
