"Dear Diary" as written by Alecia B Moore and Linda Perry....
Dear Diary

[Chorus 1]
Dear, dear diary, I want to tell my secrets
Cause you're the only one that I know who'll keep them
Dear, dear diary, I want to tell my secrets
I know you'll keep them, and this is what I've done

I've been a bad, bad girl for so long
I don't know how to change what went wrong
Daddy's little girl when he went away
What did it teach me? That love leaves

[Chorus 1]

I've been down every road you could go
I made some bad choices as you know
Seems I have the whole world cradled in my hands
But its just like me not to understand

[Chorus 2]
Dear, dear diary, I want to tell my secrets
Cause you're the only one that I know who'll keep them
Dear, dear diary, I want to tell my secrets
I've been a bad, bad girl

I learned my lessons
I turned myself around
I've got a guardian angel tattooed on my shoulder

She's been watching over me

[Chorus 2: x2]

I've been a bad, bad girl

    General CommentThis song seems kinda deep for me, and I know how it is to feel as if everything has went wrong, and you have no one to turn to.

    General CommentShe got mixed up and made mistakes. She has a messed up past, but she has it figured out now. She knows what's up, and she recognizes that all that is in the past now, but you can't just ignore your past... it doesn't go away.

    General Commentthis song is so powerful. for anyone who's ever kept a diary you can look back on all the crazy stuff that you've done and written about it, but still after all that, it's hard to figure out exactly where you went wrong.

    General Commentthis is the song i turn on when im having problems. i can relate to it... pink's music for me is stress relief music. but this song is pretty easy to connect to. especially the part about not having anyone to turn to when you need someone
