You think I've got it all
You think I've got it made well
How come my only friends are the ones I pay?
No one understands
What I would do to change my life for just one day
Don't say if I were you (say if I were you)
Or tell me what you'd do
Or things would be if
You were in my shoes
Cuz you're not me
You know what I need
And it's not another serenade
I get so tired of all the things you say
So give me what I want
If you only would
I'd gladly throw this all away
Don't say if I were you (say if I were you)
Or tell me what you'd do
Or things would be if
You were in my shoes (cuz you're not me)
Please take me as I am (take me as I am)
This isn't what I planned
But I don't expect that
You can understand
Cuz you're not me
I know you think you're bein' nice
But spare me all your lame advice
Time to play my hand and role the dice
Everybody's got their price
For far to long I've been denied
I'm makin' my move so just step aside
No one can say I never tried
To do everything to get back my pride
Hey, you were never me
Why can't you see
That you're not me (me, me, me, me, me, me, me)
Don't say if I were you (say if I were you)
Or tell me what you'd do (tell me what you'd do)
Or how things would be if
You were in my shoes (cuz you're not me)
Please help me if you can (help me if you can)
This isn't what I planned (this isn't what I planned)
But I don't expect that
You can understand
Cuz you're not me

    The meanings reflect upon how everyone thinks that a person has got their life made, but that person knows that they alone lack one thing. True friends. They would be willing to do anything to change their life for one day to have true friends. What they want is compassion. They don't want empathy. At the same time, everyone knows what that person needs, but refuses to give it to them. If they truly would give it to them, then they would gladly throw out everything since they would finally have what that have wanted. They want friends that can take them as they are because how they are currently isn't what they had planned on. Furthermore, they don't want people to give them lame advice on how to get friends because that truly doesn't help in the end. What they truly want is help among everything else to have a friend and be a friend. But they don't think that anyone else expects to understand that at all because they aren't that person. It is all a reflection of life, and how we all are. What we want most is friends, but some people aren't willing to be a friend. That is all that everyone wants.
