"Victim" as written by Aaron Montgomery, Peter Charell, Chris Brown and Simon Ormandy....
Let me play
I've been dying to let you win
It's all I wanna be
So won't you take if from me
I wonder
But the less I get the more I give
It's all I wanna be
So won't you take if from me

I want your eyes
I want your eyes on me
I want your eyes
I want your eyes on me
I want your eyes
I want your eyes to see
I want someone to notice me

I wanna be the only victim
I wanna be the only victim

No regrets, even if it's all I get
It's all I wanna be
So won't you take it from me
It still hurts
It's never easy to forget
Do I wanna be
What you never asked me

I want your eyes
I want your eyes on me
I want your eyes
I want your eyes on me
I want your eyes
I want your eyes to see
I want you to notice me

I wanna be the only victim
I wanna be the only victim

I'm right here
I'm right here

I'm right here [Repeat: x7]

So come and get me!

So come and get me!

I wanna be the only victim [Repeat: x4]

    General CommentI don't think this is about a bene-friend situation. I think it is more-so someone who wants to be more than friends with someone. The second verse I believe speaks to that a lot:

    "No regrets... even if it's all I get"
    - I believe this line is referring to exposing ones feelings towards another person. "No regrets, even if this person turns me down" essentially

    "It still hurts
    It's never easy to forget
    Do I wanna be
    Well you never asked me"
    - I think this portion of the second verse is addressing the feelings after rejection, but the sought after party doesn't abandon the friendship. "It still hurts. It's never easy to forget," is what it's like trying to forget ones feelings after being told there is no chance. The next half of the verse I believe is saying "I don't want to be just friends."

    My interpretation of the songs meaning could be pretty biased. I have a friend who I seem to be infatuated with. I wanted to be with her so I started offering to help her with some things and did stuff without being asked. It seemed like "the less I got the more I gave." I was trying to get her to "notice" me how I noticed her. After a while I told her of my feelings, "no regrets". She turned me down saying she didn't want to ruin our friendship, that she didn't have time, etc. I tried to bury the feelings, but as the song says, "it's never easy to forget." "Do I wanna be?" No, I don't want to be just friends.

    I still offer to do nice things and help her out when I can, get her food when she is hungry, essentially saying "I'm right here." It turned out that it wasn't the friendship or the time or anything else that made her say no. She is in the same dilemma I'm in, but it's dealing with another person. That being said, in my endless quest to get her to notice me and that I'm doing all I can for her... I'm helping her reel in the guy she wants. Why? That's a good fucking question.
