About Call the Shots

"Call the Shots" is a song by British-Irish girl group Girls Aloud from their fourth studio album, Tangled Up (2007). The song was written by Miranda Cooper, with inspiration from an article about the advance of women in business, and Brian Higgins, Tim Powell, Lisa Cowling, and Giselle Somerville also received songwriting credits. Polydor Records originally intended to release it as a single for The Sound of Girls Aloud: The Greatest Hits (2006); however, "Something Kinda Ooooh" was selected instead. In September 2007, "Call the Shots" leaked online, and on 26 November of the same year, it was released as the second single from Tangled Up through Fascination Records, a week after the album's release. The song was produced by Xenomania. In 2008, the song won the award for the Popjustice £20 Music Prize, an annual prize awarded by a panel of judges organised by music website Popjustice to the singer(s) of the best British pop single of the past year. "Call the Shots" proved to be commercially successful upon its release, charting at number three on the UK Singles Chart, continuing the band's string of hits by becoming their sixteenth consecutive single to chart within the top ten, and being later certified Silver by the British Phonographic Industry. The song also peaked at number nine on the Irish Singles Chart.

Static tone on the phone I'll be breaking again
Must be something better, babe 
All the names you called out of bed seem to fade
To sometime never planned

I won't cry for all the hunger in my heart, no
I won't cry because I've made it through this far

Just coz you're raising the bet and call the shots now on me, ooh
It really doesn't phase me how you spend your time, ooh-oooh
Just coz you're raising the bet and call the shots now on me, ooh
It really doesn't phase me how you spend your time, ooh-oooh

Out of the fire that burns inside me
A phoenix is rising
If you don't feel that you can love me
I won't shoot you down

I won't cry for all the hunger in my heart, no
I won't cry because I've stumbled through this far

Just coz you're raising the bet and call the shots now on me, ooh
It really doesn't phase me how you spend your time, ooh-oooh
Just coz you're raising the bet and call the shots now on me, ooh
It really doesn't phase me how you spend your time, ooh-oooh

I've seen life burn bright, I've seen it shimmer
They fade like starlight to a glimmer
I've seen life flow by, like a river
So full of twilight, dreams that glitter

Just coz you're raising the bet and call the shots now on me, ooh
It really doesn't phase me how you spend your time, ooh-oooh
Just coz you're raising the bet and call the shots now on me, ooh
It really doesn't phase me how you spend your time, ooh-oooh
