True, I'd give my right arm
To keep you safe from harm
And, true, for you I'd move to Ecuador
And I'd keep a little farm
Chop wood to keep you warm
But I don't really love you anymore

I don't have to love you now if I don't wish to
I won't see you anyhow if that's an issue

Because I am a gentleman
Think of me as just your fan
Who remembers every dress you ever wore—
Just the bad comedian
Your new boyfriend's better than—
'Cause I don't really love you anymore

There'll be some day when your eyes do not enthrall me
I'll be numb, I realize you'll never call me

'Cause I've read your horoscope
And now I've given up all hope
So I don't really love you anymore
'Cause I've read your horoscope
And now I've given up all hope
So I don't really love you anymore

    haha, it's sad I relate to those lines, but I do.

    I've listened to this song so many times, it's ridiculous. definitely one of my favorites from this album! i love how playful it is, and the way it's so obvious that the title is a lie. =P

    General CommentWhat a sarcastic song. The title and lyrics are such a lie, and you can tell that even though the music is so upbeat, he's just lying to himself and trying to make himself believe that he doesn't really love a certain girl anymore when he obviously does. And I certainly can relate to this song, though it's with a guy and not a girl.

    General CommentThis song has a lot in common with "You and Me and the Moon", musically.
