I've been cheating on you ever since we broke up
I've been dreaming about you ever since I woke up
And my hearing's disappearing ever since you spoke up

I'll devise a plot
To break your heart
Plan a revenge that I'll never carry out
What's wrong with you?
Tell me now, what should I do?

Don't let me down
I couldn't take much more of your love
Don't call me up
I'm so fed up with being down

I asked you to the show but I knew you wouldn't show up
You came to my birthday party just to tell me I should grow up
And I see another girl and I think i'm gonna throw up

So I'll devise a plan
To nuke your man
An evil scheme to come back and take command
I'll win your hand
We'll hijack a plane and we're never going to land

Don't let me down
I couldn't take much more of your love

Don't call me up
I'm so fed up with being down

    General Commenti love this song. he wishes that she would get back together with him, he plans all these evil deeds, that he knows deep inside he could never actually commit to, because he loves her all too much. he only wishes that she would choose him over this other dude.

    General Commenti agree with the above, plus the stuff in the beginning. to me, it means that even though they're broken up, he still feels her in everything he does. and that he can't stop thinking and daydreaming about her, since the break up "woke him up," like a snap into reality. and that since she spoke up (which i take to mean she broke up with him), he shut off his ears and won't listen b/c it hurts too much.
