"Love Makes The World Go Round" as written by and John/simpson Shanks....
Here, here I am again
And I'm starin' at these same four walls
Alone again
And now, all the colors blend
And I'm growing numb and I've become
This empty page

Hold on, it's tragic
Stumbling in through all this static

I just want to talk to you
And my broken heart just has no use
I, I guess promsises are better
left unsaid, yeah

Everytime you try to tell me
say the words that I'm the only
But I'm the one who's crawling on the ground
When you say love makes the world go 'round

My love, look at what you've done to me
For someone who has felt so strong
It's amazing I'm completely gone

Hold on, it's tragic
Stumbling in through all this static

I just want to talk to you
And my broken heart just has no use
I, I guess promsises are better
Left unsaid, yeah

Everytime you try to tell me
say the words that I'm the only
But I'm the one who's crawling on the ground,
When you say love makes the world go 'round

It's not the love you give me
I'd rather be alone, believe me
It's not the way you've found to treat me
I'd rather walk away

I just want to talk to you
And my broken heart just has no use
I, I guess promsises are better
Left unsaid, yeah

Everytime you try to tell me
Say the words that I'm the only
But I'm the one who's crawling on the ground,
When you say love makes the world go 'round, yeah

You say love makes the world go 'round
Everytime you try to tell me
I don't care you're not the only
Don't you know I'm coming back around

'Cause I say love makes the world go 'round, yeah
'Cause I say love makes the world go 'round

    General CommentShe's talking about how she's in love but the guy doesn't treat as good as he should...like he breaks promises and stuff and at first it's like she doesn't know how to get up and walk away from him but then in the end she does it.
    "Dont you know I'm coming back around
    Cuz I say love makes the world go 'round" ... My favorite part :)

    General Commenty' know what?
    i really like the part 'hold on,its tragic,sorting through all this static..'
    what i find hard to believe is how anyone can be halfway suprised that she got caught lip syncing.
    did you guys really think she could sing?

    General Commentmy gf and i were jokingly discussing this song(it's so darn catchy, i have to admit), and it was tough to figure out. my interpretation is that she feels her bf doesn't treat her right, and she is the only one in love in that relationship. the only explanation i can possibly think of about this part that puzzles me everytime:

    But I'm one whos crawling on the ground,
    When you say love makes the world go 'round, yeah

    is that she is crawling because literally spinning below her. because her bf says that love is what makes the world go around. basically, it's just a way to say that she is in love.

    yes, that was kind of a lame explanation, but i think that might be more of a relection on the song rather than my(or any other people's) inability to decipher the meaning of the song.

    i also agree with promisexkept's point about people being surprised that she lip syncs. i think more artists do it than they care to admit. and according to my gf who owns ashlee's album, she can't really sing well anyway. there are many other pop singers just like her, but unfortunately, it seems that she is being picked on at the moment. not to say that i condone lip sync'ing.

    General Commentwhen i hear this song i could completely relate to it. she's saying she's in the same place she was before, loving this guy even tho she knows she shouldn't. She's so in love with this guy and all she wants is to talk to him, and make everything alright, but she is sooo hurt and so upset becuz all he duz is lie and say he cares when he's lovin other girls too. then finally she says she's done with all of it, and she's gone. she knows she can find better cuz she doesn't wanna be in that kinda relationship. and she says she's gonna be okay, and thet REAL LOVE makes the world go round. :)
