"Once I Was Mighty" as written by Martina Sorbara and Adam Hay....
When I strip for my window
The audience is always easy
And when I kiss my pillow
At least I know what he sees in me
I could be seductive
But I'm just not seductive
I'm not the mystery
That you made of me
So I've boarded up the windows of my palace
So I've grown accustomed to rose coloured glasses
I called all the local papers
Saying look what he did to me
Look what he said to me
Don't take this guy seriously
Still I find myself on my knees
Repenting relentlessly
For what he didn't find in me
For what I didn't turn out to be
He says I boarded up the windows of my palace
That I've grown accustomed to rose coloured glasses
So I live the life in pink
So I'm different than you think
So I'm not so outrageous
I'm not so outrageous
There was a time I was mighty
When I stood as tall as I can
Yeah, once I was mighty
Now you've made even smaller than I am
'Cause I've boarded up the windows of my palace
I've grown accustomed to rose coloured glasses
So I live the life in pink
So I'm different than you think
I'm not so outrageous
So I couldn't do what you did
I'm a little more timid
I'm not so courageous
I'm not so courageous
Once I was mighty
Once I was mighty

    General Commenti think this one is about a break up, at least that's how i take it, and it very much speaks to me, cause this is how i feel, and just wanting back what you had with a person, but knowing you can't get it, and you feel weak becauase you can't get back what you got in the first place... this is an absolutly amazing song, and it just really speaks to me
