All that I did was walk over
Start off by shaking your hands
That's how it went
I had a smile on my face and I sat up straight
Oh, yeah, yeah
I wanted to know you
I wanted to show you

[Chorus]
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
You don't want me there
You just shut me out
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
If you had your way
You'd just shut me up
Make me go away

No, I just don't understand why
You won't talk to me
It's hurts that I'm so unwanted for nothing
Don't talk words against me
I wanted to know you
I wanted to show you

[Chorus]

Make me go away

I tried to belong
It didn't seem wrong
My head aches
Its been so long
I'll write this song
If that's what it take

[Chorus: x2]

Make me go away
Make me go away

    General Comment:i like a lot of different music (Good Charlotte, Goldfinger, Avril Lavigne, Pink, Jimmy Eat World, Tantric, Smashing Pumpkins, Unwritten Law) , and avril lavigne is a really good vaguely punk, mostly pop singer. i have no respect for the major pop bands (Britney Spears, N Sync) because all their songs are identical, they're all made to improve the pop star's image, and they don't even write their own music or play any instruments. but Avril Lavigne writes her own music and her songs don't show her as some beautiful weak heroine with bleached blonde hair, and that's cool.
    anyways, to the song, lol. I would think that it does have something to do with a popular group at her school, but it could be any group that believes itself to be superior to her.

    General Comment:I don't think this song is about guys. I actually think it's about the music business and how they can shut people out that are different. Probably, Avril got rejected by a lot of record labels before she finally stuck to one. It just seems to me that part where she says that she shook their hands and sat up straight would mean something like that. But maybe it's just me. =)

    General Comment:i definitely agree with sha34...it doesnt really sound like she's talking about a guy or guys...but i guess that it could be looked at in that context

    General Comment:I think this song means something different though...Like maybe there was just a group of popular people who shut her out, until they got to know her. But they actually met her (found out who she really was) by her writing songs. Cuz of how it says, "I write this song/That's what it takes." Maybe it was just one incident where she tried to go up and make friends with a group of people , but she was different...and it just didn't happen the way she wanted it to. That's why she said, "I just don't understand, why you won't talk to me," and, "Don't talk words against me." Because maybe they talked behind her back after gettin' rid of her....Oh well..That's just what I think though.
