He met her in the fall, he took her to a movie
And when they'd done it all, he took her to a movie
And from the hospital, he took her to a movie
But so did I

And when her heart was sad, he took her to a movie
She's all he's ever had, he took her to a movie
And should their love turn bad, he took her to a movie
But so did I

I think she's been alone, he took her to a movie
When they cut off the phone, he took her to a movie
And when her cover's blown, he took her to a movie
But so did I

There's nothing on TV, he took her to a movie
But she's the one for me, he took her to a movie
We're at number three, he took her to a movie
But so did I

    General CommentWhen a guy takes a girl to the movie, this could mean relationship. When two girls go to a movie, the're just friends. Nothing deper is implied. And this pains the singer.

    General Commenti love this song! this is my take
    she likes a girl thinks "she's the one for [her]" but this other guy likes her alot too and she's "she's all he's ever had".. and they have something is common: they've both taken the girl to movies! but looks like the bisexual girl picks the guy, eh?
    anyone have any other takes???

    General CommentEither taking the girl to movies is their way of not being able to deal with actual problems, or its just plain sex.

    General CommentI believe it is about a love triangle but i'm not sure the middle girl is bi. I think she's straight, and although the lesbian does all these things for her, she just doesn't see it the same way.

    General Commentwell I really do like the way farfronorm sees it but the line "she's blown her cover" makes me think that perhaps the middle girl is bi..

    General CommentJust because a woman is singing the song, doesn't mean she's necessarily singing the song from a female perspective.

    General CommentI always took it to mean that the guy is nothing special. As in, the girl singing is trying to tell 'her' that he isn't worth the effort.
    Because all he ever does is take her to the movies, whether that's metaphorical or not, no matter what's going on in 'her' life.
