How did you get so big?
Did you eat too much
Did you bite off more than you could prove
So Hollywood
Riding with the stars
And all the regulars know
Just who you are
I've got the biggest heart
You've ever torn apart


You fooled with the wrong guy
You fooled with the wrong guy
You fooled with the wrong guy
Fooled with the wrong guy


How did you get so drunk?
I guess you had enough
You swallowed more than we all knew
So many friends
Only hold you when
You got dreams for them to sink
Their teeth into
But it don't mean a lot
When it's all been bought


You fooled with the wrong guy
You fooled with the wrong guy
You fooled with the wrong guy
Fooled with the wrong guy
When you fooled with me

    I think he had a girlfriend who became famous and forgot all about him. When he talks about her being 'big' I think he means her ego, not her physique.

    "So Hollywood
    Riding with the stars
    And all the regulars know
    Just who you are "

    This just restates how she became famous or got noticed or something like that and left him.

    "I've got the biggest heart
    You've ever torn apart "

    I think he is trying to remind her that he has been the nicest guy she has ever dated, so it's not like her deserves to have his heart broken.

    "How did you get so drunk?
    I guess you had enough
    You swallowed more than we all knew "

    Now that she's famous, she parties too much.

    "So many friends
    Only hold you when
    You got dreams for them to sink
    Their teeth into "

    Her friends are in show business, and they only want to be nice to her when they can make money off of her.

    When he sings about fooling with the wrong guy, it might just be me, but it sounds like he might want revenge of some sort. Who knows?

    My OpinionI don't think the singer is interested in revenge -- this song isn't about anger and pride as much as it's about disappointment and regret and betrayal on a much deeper level than bruised feelings and crushed ego. It's one of the saddest and wisest songs I've ever heard because it recognizes that two people are in trouble, and only one of them has enough heart -- even though it's torn apart -- to cry for both of them. Oh she'll pay alright, but through her own actions, not by his. That's what he's telling her.
