my fave lyrics are these parts... give me chills:

How did I get so low?
When did I turn so cold
Inside of my own mind, I believed my own lies
I'm facing the mirror

+

So tired of painting all this makeup
'Cause it won't hide my deep cuts
Eyes open, but can't see
Mouth open, but can't speak
I'm facing the mirror

Yesterday I started crying, listening to this and wondering when I lost contact with my inner child and why I allowed that to happen. It's an amazing song.

Yeah I saw that on a lot of lyrics sites but it doesn't sound like "wouldn't give up" to me... Not to mention that it doesn't make much sense in the lyrical context. Or maybe I am wrong?

Sounds like "All my life's been given" to me. As in, Xtina feels like she sacrificed her body, mind, and soul for the industry. She felt like she had nothing left.

Yes!! Same here- whenever this track comes on I go hard singing along with these lyrics. definitely the most relatable from the song (maybe the album) for me.

After what must have been the 100th listen, I went to actually listen to the Michael Jackson song. And then I realize how fucking epic this song. I hear so much more, with the ‘you keep on running away’ in the background. It’s so freaking genius.

The whole ‘Hear my plea for sympathy’ isn’t in the original Michael Jackson song right? Can I assume it’s some sort of vocal manipulation?

It's in the original.

On the contrary to many's opinion, it's just an okay song for me. I think the production could've been better for her voice and style. It's just a bit too much sound in the background while she's singing. Too loud. Same with Fall In Line, although her vocals, not the production, is what makes this one less radio friendly.

My favourite from Liberation hands down. The lyrics, production, vocals, the intro with those strings, beat drop, I love everything about this song.

Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Maria. It's my second most played song from the album, only after Deserve. Both masterpieces. That said, the MJ sample works. Specially in the beginning and the end of the song: specially at 3.11 when they both (Michael and Christina) start singing MARIA together. It's heavenly.

But :rip: during the verses and choruses it sounds just.. idk out of place. It sounds like a cat crying :rip: to the point where it annoys me. It's even worse when you listen to the song/album while high. The album is so chill, relaxing and then he starts.. i dont even know what he is doingsometimes cause he doesnt say a word but screams or moans :rip: .

Anyone else having the same issue?

Nope. I think it’s symbolic that little Michael is on the song, since she’s doing a self reflection on her life, aspiration and fame and what that meant to her as a child. Her and Michael were both
Industry children so it works perfectly.

I freaking HATE his voice being over Christina's when she starts singing "how was i supposed to know...". Ugh, so freaking annoying.
