"Look What You've Done" as written by and Nicholas John Cester....
Take my photo off the wall
If it just won't sing for you.
'Cause all that's left has gone away
And there's nothing there for you to prove.

Oh, look what you've done
You've made a fool of everyone.
Oh, well, it seems like such fun
Until you lose what you had won.

Give me back my point of view
'Cause I just can't think for you.
I can hardly hear you say
What should I do?
Well, you choose

Oh, look what you've done
You've made a fool of everyone.
Oh, well, it seems like such fun
Until you lose what you had won.

Oh,look what you've done
You've made a fool of everyone
A fool of everyone
A fool of everyone

Take my photo off the wall
If it just won't sing for you.
'Cause all that's left has gone away
And there's nothing there for you to do.

Oh, look what you've done
You've made a fool of everyone.
Oh, well, it seems like such fun
Until you lose what you had won.

Oh, look what you've done
You've made a fool of everyone
A fool of everyone
A fool of everyone.

    General Commentno offense, but its a little annoying how people come on to say how they like a song but dont try to interpret the song. isnt that what this sites for??

    my interp:
    its either about some guy bein cheated on... and hes basically saying: if i cant make u happy anymore, just dont be with me.
    you cant persuade me to stay now.

    or maybe its a person who was a close friend who fell for the other saying, "i cant help you to choose what you should do anymore... i thought i won you over but i lost you"

    idk ... seems right to me... either one works fine for me but theyre probably not right because its like 2 different things in different parts of the song... but then again the lover could say, "i supported you this whole time and now i wont, i thought i had you, but i guess not"...idk if that makes too much sense ...oh well lol

    General Commenti think this song is about someone wanting someone quite alot but then it never happens and they just want there life back "take my photo off the wall" "give me back my point of view".. its like a situation where theres nothing left to say you just want to get on with your life.. its only what i think.. might be wrong though

    General CommentJet don't rip off the Beatles. The Beatles are a music era unto themselves. Their music is eclectic and original, and I don't think anyone ever sets out to sound like them. You can't copy them, and I don;t think Jet are trying to. They've been influenced by AC/DC, INXS, The Beatles, and thats why their music is reminiscent of that, but ultimately, its their own style.

    General CommentI will never forgive myself for reading to the end of this. Most of the posts so far sound like this: "I want to make schwetty, schwetty love to the beatles." We get that the beatles are very good. Now get off it. If you didn't like this song you wouldn't be here. Kinda like you shouldn't be embarrased to be seen at K-mart because whoever sees you is there too. Unless they see you shopping while they are walking by- then you need to move. I still love you K-mart. I'm not sorry for that rant. Had to drop it like it's hot.

    You guys are all liars because Jet actually wrote this song about my (insert story about past broken relationship here).

    I like the lyrics about giving him back his point of view and him asking the other person to think for themselves and to choose on their own what to do. I think we have all at least once asked someone else to make a difficult decision for us and this is a nice reminder to not do that.

    My InterpretationI think the song is a classic example of a person throwing away a really good relationship to go for the wrong guy or girl. The video really showcased the song's meaning.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Let It Be by the Beatles, but not as good of course. It's still a good song. I think it's a song about a guy who was maybe cheated on. Thats why he looks like a fool and he is questioning whether he should stay with her.

    General CommentI like the idea that this track is about a guy being cheated on.
    i'm gna go insane and try and claim you could read a political message out of this. in a world where politics is fast to jude before looking at the wider facts and figures, everyone 'out of the loop' so to speak is forced to stand behind decisions, it its wrong, everyone seems foolish... well, its an idea anyway.
    fantastic track though.

    General Commentthis song could be about someone just being depended on so much that they are just a tool for someone, he's kind of trying to say your loosing me now and i love you but you have to learn.

    General CommentThis song reminds me very much of the Beatles song "Sexy Sadie" on the White Album...some of the lyrics are the same, like "look what you've done" and "you've made a fool of everyone"...just listen to the song, and you'll see what I mean...
