"C'mon C'mon" as written by and Sheryl Crow....
C'mon c'mon
C'mon c'mon c'mon

You lay down with angels
To feel yourself again
You've got everything you need
Under your thick skin
I know where you're going
I know where you've been
When it comes to playing games
You will always win

[Chorus]
C'mon c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old time sake
C'mon c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old times sake

You can't see your shadow
Reaching for the sky
Lay your head down on the bed
Please don't ask me why

Why am I leaving
Why don't I know
Something deep inside me
Is forcing me to go

You say you need me
But you can't tell me why
When I ask you to stop me baby
You just let me go

[Chorus]

You took the best of me
And threw it away
Too bad the rest of me
Still wants you to stay

Wants you to stay
You say you need me
But you can't tell me why
When I ask you to sop me baby

You just let me go
You just let me go

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think this song is about the hard decision to pull out of a relationship that you've wanted to pull out of for a long time, and you're just now getting up the strength to do it. The "you" in the song--Sheryl's now-ex-love interest--seems emotionally unattached to everything, particularly to her. She is unsatisfied with the relationship because he can't give all of himself, and so the pair cannot connect. After a long time of trying to believe otherwise, she has finally faced it that he is just not going to let his emotions come up ("You've got everything you need, under your thick skin," and "You say you need me/But you can't tell me no/When I ask you to stop me baby/You just let me go.") My favorite line of this song is "When it comes to playing games, you will always win," referring to his way of inevitably coming out on top, considering loss isn't really loss if have no vested interest. Despite the sad content of the lyrics, though, I think that the happy tone of the song is genuine, not ironic. Regarding the end of the relationship, Sheryl feels like sure, she maybe "wasted" a little time, but she has accepted and has come full circle, and she is happy.

    General CommentIt's about indecesion to end a relationship with someone.

    The person is wanting to have a strong reason for herself to break up with her boyfriend. She wants him to leave, then stay... so she believes if he just breaks her heart one more time, she could leave him.

    Many people can relate to these lyrics, very open and very powerful. Good job Sheryl Crow.

    General CommentStevie Nicks sings background vocal on this song. Sheryl went to Stevie's house saying she had written a song for Stevie and wanted to play it for her. She played acoustic in Stevie's living room and sang it to her. The lyrics were inspired by Stevie's musings on Lindsey Buckingham whom she had just been on tour with (w/Fleetwood Mac.)
