"And That's Why" as written by and Lauren Cecilia Gofton....
Nobody does what they want doing
They want something they wouldn't do for you
Nobody wants to tell the truth
And if they don't like it, they don't do it

Ooh, why does nobody want you?
Ooh, why does nobody want you?

Nobody wants you at the party
On the stairs where you sit lonely
Nobody comes to look you over
All that washing
All that hoping

Ooh, why does nobody want you?
Ooh, why does nobody want you?

It's been said there are thousands of place
None like this one when you're dead
There a million of faces
How did I get this one?

Nobody wants to see you struggle
They remember they're in trouble
But you don't want to be alone
The bed's too big and no one phones you

Ooh, why does nobody want you?
Ooh, why does nobody want you?

Nobody wants to look no older
Stretch my skin till it comes open
You say you don't know mind the things they want
But I know you mind when no one wants you

Ooh, and that's why no one wants you
Ooh, and that's why no one wants you

    General Commentthis is about being alone and feeling unloved and just generally shitty. i think the message is that no one will want you if you don't act positive, and just being on your own is stopping you from meeting anyone else. very very powerful, especially the bit in the middle with the strings.
