I couldn't resist him
His eyes were like yours
His hair was exactly the shade of brown
He's just not as tall, but I couldn't tell
It was dark and I was lying down

You are everything ' he means nothing to me
I can't even remember his name
Why're you so upset?
Baby, you weren't there and I was thinking of you when I came

What do you expect?
You left me here alone; I drank so much and needed to touch
Don't overreact ' I pretended he was you
You wouldn't want me to be lonely

How can I put it so you understand?
I didn't let him hold my hand
But he looked like you; I guess he looked like you
No he wasn't you
But you can still trust me, this ain't infidelity
It's not cheating; you were on my mind

Yes he looked like you
But I heard love is blind

    General CommentI don't think this is a parody at all. A lot of people truly think this way and separate love from sex.

    General CommentI think it is sung with a bit of sarcasm. it's clear if you watch her performing it live. she doesn't REALLY care about her current boyfriend while she's trying to explain everything to him it's more that she's explaining the situation to herself trying to calm herself down. she's not a cheater,, it was just dark, you know :)

    General Commentshe slept with a boy that looked like her current boyfriend when she was drunk but she is trying to explain that she just had sex with him and sex is sex, she didn't love him or even care about him and she thought about her current boyfriend the whole time. She is trying to tell him that her heart is still his when her body was the other dudes so it doesn't really count. Her love for her boyfriend and the fact that the other boy looked like him blinded her.

    General CommentOr, in other words,
    she was drunk and made a terrible mistake.

    Just shows what alcohol can do to you.

    General Commenti love how it ends with but i heard love was blind. i think it means that it doesn't matter what he looked like or whatever, love is love, and it it doesnt matter what they look like.

    General CommentCame across this song only recently and wow, what a frickin' song!!

    Sounds like a combination of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott...

    Anyhow, didn't really know what she was singing until I read the lyrics now and I'm really impressed...

    She takes such a unique perspective on cheating, or unique in terms of the way she wrote it... The last line "But I heard love is blind" is what it is, but if you think beyond the literal meaning, she's saying that love does not see, it feels... it's something inside of you that isn't physical... the sex she had with the other person was completely physical and heartless, because in her mind, she was thinking of the guy she loves...

    General Commenti think it is part parody at least.

    General CommentAmy´s really a witty songwriter. This sounds like a parody to what many men have always said to their wives through ages. The strangest thing is that I get the feeling that if a man sang this, people would laugh; since it´s a woman who does, many people feel disgusted by the lyrics.
