"Sweetie" as written by and Harry Owens....
Why can't they understand
It was always more than me in a band
I came here tonight to find my friends
Didn't they put a stake right through our hearts

Hold me close in the rain
I'll play the second set and the sense walk out again
Why is it so wrong to be sure
Rip the stake out from my stylish heart

If they come to find me
I will fall into pieces
If they come to find me
I'll sneak out the window

It's not right
It's not right
Its not right
Its not right

Taking it up and taking it back
Taking it up and taking it back
Taking it up and taking it back
Taking it up and taking it back

    General Commenti think this song is about her& her friends.
    how they are constantly backstabbing eachother,
    but in the end they're always togethere and hanging out.

    General CommentI thought this song was about how she just wants to play music with her friends and deliver her messages about feminism etc but people keep putting her down hence the 'stake through our hearts' thing. Also the 'Why is it so wrong to be sure' part is about how she doesn't understand why people have a problem with her sticking by her beliefs.

    General Commenti think this is about them getting ¨famous¨ or whatever and in a band and their friends (maybe cos theyr jealous or something) backstab them or something
    kind of their friends turning their backs when they started to get busy

    General CommentInstead of "I'll play the second set and the sense walk out again", I hear "I'll play the second side of the Slits record again".
