lol...i don't really like the veronicas - but now that i've read their lyrics i really don't think they're much good.
Basically look at the first verse:
I'm tired of my life.
I feel so in between.
I'm sick of all my friends, girls can be so mean
I feel like throwin’ out everything I wear
I'm startin’ over new,
Coz I’m not even there.
it's basically about: not fitting in; and possibly the pressures society puts on a young women today - ie. 'im sick of all my friends...mean' so she feels she doesnt fit in physically (ie in a dress or style sense) with other women and they are giving it to her for being different - which leads onto 'i want to throw out all my clothes' which is probably because she dresses differently and wants to conform but feels frustrated...
I wanna get away some place,
But I don't wanna stay too long.
I wanna brand new day,
Try to fit in where I don't belong
So once again the threads of feeling she doesnt belong or fit in with the other women her age. She wants to conform but can't because it isn't being true to her identity...should a round peg fit in a square hole? She wants to be free from pressures.
i don't know how 'hook me up' fits into the rest of the song. Hook her up with what? anyway....
Don't try to make it the same as what they have, read it like a story or a poem. Make sure that it fits in with the rhythm of the music, don't just change the words of the lyric, completely rewrite it into what you think it should be!
So when your re-writing the second verse, you still want to try and be along the same lines (ie subject matter) of the first verse - but i would go along a line of non conformity in other words, conclude from the first verse that it is important to have your own identity - stuff the other girls who feel like they have to belong, whats important is staying true to yourself. That is a much stronger lyric then what they have which is basically repeating the first verse but being angry about it.
Okay i hope that helped...goodluck!
