"Don't Mess With My Love" as written by Guy Roche, Marit Larsen, Shelly Peiken and Marion Elise Ravn....





I thought you were a friend of mine but I was wrong

You tried to fit into the arms where I belong

You moved right in behind my back

Everyone knows friends don't do that



I thought you were somebody I could trust

You always said you were happy for us

How could you go and break my heart?

When you knew all along he was mine from the start



He is everything to me

And you know we're meant to be

He's my baby

Don't mess with my love

Take everything I own

Ooh just leave that boy alone

He's my baby

Don't mess with my

Mess with my love

Don't mess with my love



You came right over and looked in my eyes

You said the stories were rumors and lies

And I wish I could believe in you

But I'm sorry to say he told me the truth



He is everything to me

And you know we're meant to be

He's my baby

Don't mess with my love

Take everything I own

Ooh just leave that boy alone

He's my baby

Don't mess with my

Mess with my love

Don't mess with my love



BRIDGE

Friends don't do what you do

There's no excuse

I'm so confused

I thought you cared about me

But now I see

All you care about is you



He is everything to me

And you know we're meant to be

He's my baby

Don't mess with my love

Take everything I own

Ooh just leave that boy alone

He's my baby

Don't mess with my

Mess with my love

Don't mess with my love

    General CommentAh, the Jennifer trilogy (“don’t mess with my love”, “do you know what you want” and “Jennifer”) – here’s my theory –
    Boy meets girl. Let’s call boy Jason, and girl Marion, just to make it easy. Jason and Marion like each other, and start to date. They start hanging with the same people. At which point, Marion does the stupidest thing, and introduces Jason to her hot friend – Jennifer. A big no-no.
    Jennifer is kind of a flirt, and a drama-queen. She’s not evil, she’s just… girlish. She wants Marion to be happy, so she becomes friends with Marion’s new love – Jason. At some point Jennifer starts feeling things towards Jason. She is torn apart in her little drama, between her friend Marion, and her heart which belongs to Jason.
    Now, at this point, she does the smart this and hits on Jason, going all “do you know what you want, ooh, you look so confused” on the boy.
    Jason, terrified and confused, goes to Marion and tells her that something odd has been going on with Jennifer. He does not want to tell her Jennifer hit on him, because that would be coming between their friendship, and Jason loves Marion, he does not want to hurt her. Marion, sensitive and jealous to begin with, catches up to how stupid she was to introduce the two in the first place, and goes all “stop talking about Jennifer!! All the time, it’s “Jennifer this and Jennifer that”.
    Now Jason breaks down. He tells her all about the “do you know what you want” episode, and begs her to leave it alone, tells her he loves only her.
    But that’s really not good enough to take Marion’s mind off her backstabbing friend. So she goes to Jennifer and starts with the “don’t mess with my love, slut!”

    It’s like a bloody musical.

    General CommentNice theory...I actually went to watch m2m like 6 years ago..and Marion admitted she wrote this because one of her friends went behind her back with her boyfriend and she was pretty cut about it...but yea, i'm not sure if the other songs related to it or not..but you partly guessed correctly.
