"Yes" as written by Bernard Butler and David Mcalmont....
So you wanna know me now
How I've been
You can't help someone recover
After what you did
So tell me am I looking better?
Have you forgot
Whatever it was that you couldn't stand
About me about me about me?

Because
Yes I do feel better
Yes I do I feel alright
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
To offer

You wanna know me now
How I've been
You can't help someone recover
After what you did
So tell me am I looking better?
Have you forgot
Whatever it was that you couldn't stand
About me about me about me?

Because
Yes I do feel better
Yes I do I feel alright
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got to offer
Because
Yes I do feel better
Yes I do I feel alright
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
To offer

On and on and on and on and on and on and has no-one said
Stay away, stay away I'm better

Ye-ea-ea-ea-yes!
Ye-ea-ea-ea-yes!
Ye-ea-ea-ea-yes!
Ye-ea-ea-ea-yes!

I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got
I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got.

    General CommentGreat song, I hope I have understood its words right but what does this mean: I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got? Otherwise I have been twice exactly in a situation that this song is about.

    You wanna know me now
    How I've been
    You can't help someone recover
    After what you did...

    Yes I do feel better
    Yes I do I feel alright...

    Song MeaningIt's a song about a couple who have split up. The person who finished the relationship has tried to connect back up but the one who was hurt by the break-up is now saying "I was devastated but I'm better and, I'm not interested in what you have to offer"
    This is a classic! Absolutely superb!

    General CommentThis is what I think about the meaning of this song.
    It's about a couple who has recently broke up. The narrator was badly hurt because his girlfriend dumped him, he even believes she will never be able to help anyone in a relationship after hurting him the way she did. He wonders wheter she asks herself if he is feeling better now, maybe she even regrets her decision to dump him, she might have realised that she did it for no apparent reason and she wants him back.
    He answers her concerns by saying he does feel better and though he might not be completely over her, he feels well enough to tell her he doesn't need her anymore. He had a hard time after the breakup, but now he feels alright with the situation and therefore won't let her to come back to him and hurt him once again. This is confirmed towards the end of the song where he tells her "stay away I'm better".
    I think this is a great song and an underrated one, too. It's a little bit sad, but it portrays a real-life experience of getting over someone and not letting them crawl back because you need to move forward.

    General CommentI don't think it was really written about an ex-lover, although I can see how that interpretation would resonate. It was the first thing Bernard Butler wrote after his very acrimonious split from Suede, although apparently the words were written by David McAlmont. I think it's about having been really badly let down by someone you trusted, and being very bitter about it. I saw them do this song live very recently and it was brilliant! Brett and Bernard are friends now, so I wonder how it makes him feel to play this song which came out of a very dark place?
