How many times have you tried to pull one over me?
Always mess with me and try to get the best of me
Lookin' back, all the pain that you put me through
Why would I fall for a fool like you?
Now your talkin' like I've never played the game before
Save your empty words 'cause I don't wanna here no more
Basically you're trying to take control of me
But you're not what I wanna be

I know everthing about you
Yesterday has come and gone
I'd be better off without you
No lookin' back, I'm movin' on

You'll never steal the song of my lips
I'll never bow down to give you a kiss, no
You'll never steal my innocence
You've been dismissed
Do your best to try to pull me down
I'm never going back even if I see you around, no
No, I'm never going down like this
You've been dismissed

Let me break it down one more time
No, you're never gonna change my mind
That was then, this is now things are different, no
Oh, you're not what I'm livin' for

I know everything about you
It's funny how the tables turned
I'd be better off without you
Now you're the one who's gettin' burned!

You'll never steal the song of my lips
I'll never bow down to give you a kiss, no
You'll never steal my innocence
You've been dismissed
Do your best to try to pull me down
I'm never going back even if I see you around, no
No, I'm never going down like this
You've been dismissed

On a falling star You got to where you are
And you think you've got the right to own my heart
But my affection doesn't lie in your direction
You want to hold me with a lock and key
Cover my eyes so I cannot see
But in the end we all know who wins
You are over, over, over

You'll never steal the song of my lips
I'll never bow down to give you a kiss, no
You'll never steal my innocence
You've been dismissed
Do your best to try to pull me down
I'm never going back even if I see you around, no
No, I'm never going down like this
You've been dismissed
(repeat)

    General Commentmany guys in this world will try and take advantage of girls and thats what this song is mainly about, or so i think. the girl is fighting back and doesn't want anything to do with him anymore and that she has found someone else she can clearly count on....God.

    General Commenti think this song is talking about temptation too, in a way...like there's temptation everywhere, and usually we would fall for it, but now we're stronger so we're "dismissing" temptation in our life, maybe not for good, coz it's always gonna be there, but to the point where we're standing our ground more..i dunno, but what AKChick says is also true.
