"You Make Me Feel Like A Whore" as written by Art Alexakis, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund....
I take your word like it was gospel
I'm so eager to please
Yeah I like it when

You talk to me
It feels so good inside your shadow
(It's the place I need to be)
Yeah I know I need to climb you
Like a tree

There is this place inside
Where all the good things die
Sometimes I feel like a whore
(Sometimes I feel like a whore)
I hate the way I am around you
(I'm so nervous and weird)
Sometimes I feel like I'm

Breathing underwater
You treat me like I am on fire
Like I'm something to eat
You make me hate what I see

When I see me
Yeah I dream of the day
When I learn how to make you pay
Someday I'll teach you to beg

Someday, someday
Yes I live for the day
When I can hear you say
You make me feel like a whore
Yes I dream of the time
When I can make you mine
(Maybe then I'll feel half alive, more alive, so alive)
There is this place inside
Where all the good things die
You make me feel like a whore

    General CommentIf you've seen the video (i;ve only seen it once a long time ago and I can't find it anywhere) then you would see this song is about the working world and how we are all selling our lives.
    I really want to see the video again, if anyone has it or knows where I can d/l it then help me out.

    General CommentGreat thing about everclear is that their songs have so many meanings. Like Evergleam says, it is in one way about the working world, but i nanother, it could be a standard boy-girl song, and other things to other people. It reminds me kinda of Nirvana... but we all know that everclear is exponentially better than Nirvana ;)

    General CommentI always pictured this song being about a girl completely using this guy. He realizes what she is doing to him but he is not strong enough on his own so he puts up with it. He needs her to complete him.

    General CommentHe's so caught up with this girl that she makes him feel like a whore, but he still likes it, because she's involved somehow. Complete, unhealthy, but euphoric adoration.

    General CommentI agree with applo up there. I'm a fan of both bands though. It's a matter of opinion anyway. I love this song.

    General Commentmmm .... out of all the everclear songs this is a hard one. This is what i think though, theres this guy that really likes this girl. He loves to be around her but for some reason he always acts different, not himself (I hate the way I am around you
    I'm so nervous and weird) Since be cant be with her he goes around trying to find some else just like her so he keeps on switching hence "you make me feel like a whore". He realizes that, hates her for it and there's only so much he can take (There is this place inside where all the good things die) even though he feels like that he cant help liking her a lot ...
    Yes I dream of the time
    When I can make you mine
    (Maybe then I'll feel half alive, more
    alive, so alive)

    Thats what i think.

    General CommentI see this as a guy (or girl, obviously these two roles can easily be reversed) who's nearing the end of a bad relationship. He knows that she's tearing him apart and he's better without her, but memories of how things used to be won't let him go through with the breakup. He longs for the day when they can again have what they used to have, but maybe she's changed too much to ever be the same.

    General CommentThis is how I am feeling right now towards a certain guy in my life. I will probably listen to this over and over until I'm over it.
    Love this song, the lyrics...everything.
    I think you guys nailed the meaning. ;)
