He said that he would stay forever
forever wasn't very long
He said that he would take the high road
He thought that I was always wrong

Cause when he lied it meant he loved me
And when he lied it meant he cared
And when he lied it meant he loved me
Cause when he lied it meant that he was there

He said that he would go his own way
wrapped up my leg and down my spine
He said that he would be the fairest
Drenched in blood and turpentine

Cause when he lied it meant he loved me
And when he lied it meant he cared
And when he lied it meant he loved me
Cause when he lied it meant that he was there

I am never going back I don't care what he said
I wish he could see the hate in my head
I am never going back I don't care what he said
I wish he could see the hate in my head
I am never going back I don't care what he said
I wish he could see the hate in my head
I am never going back I don't care what he said
I wish he could see the hate

He said that he would tell no secrets
He said that he would never lie
He said that he would spring eternal
He said that we would never die

Cause when he lied it meant he loved me
And when he lied it meant he cared
And when he lied it meant he loved me
Cause when he cried it meant he cared

Cause when he lied it meant he loved me
And when he lied it meant he cared
And when he lied it meant he loved me
Cause when he lied it meant that
he was
he was
he was
He was there

    General Commenti think this is about ebign naieve (spelling?) in relationships

    'when he lied it meant he loved me'

    twisting meanings for yourself and making things mean what you want them too. refusing to sccept the truth that this guy is a bastard etc. rather than just having a dig at the guy, i think its having a dig at herself (or the subject of the song) for believing him...

    General CommentHow about false love? like he was faking it...
    "Cause when he lied it meant he loved me
    And when he lied it meant he cared
    And when he lied it meant he loved me
    Cause when he lied it meant that he was there "

    General Commentits about (to me anyway) a teenage love affair (hence rabbiTEEN) which ends abruptly when he buggers off (RABITeen - see clever!) when they were together he made so many promises that she believed, but every one was a lie. i love the sarcasm in the line 'forever wasnt very long' . in the chorus its like her justifying it or defending him or whatever. sort of denial, because she believes that he only lied because he loves her. i can really relate to this because of my bf, and i always hoped i wudnt :(

    General CommentI love how Jessika's songs can really hit you on a personal level. This and Angels Fuck remind me of a bad relationship I was in a while ago. Nice.
