"I Bet It Stung" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
I know you plan out
Everything that you hope to say
I wish that we didn't
Have to go about things this way
I love the rock and roll, I love the rock and roll

Don't get so up tight
Don't get so up tight

Oh
Go away

Tell me if you love me like you think you want to be loved
Pull on my hand and say please just let's make it this way
I love the rock and roll, I love the rock and roll

Don't get so up tight
Don't get so up tight

Oh
Go away
Go
Go away

    General Commentthere's a sort of contradiction in this song. and there's no real solution or anything and i like that because that's how things are.

    General Commentsounds to me like someone wants what the other person won't give them. they just want to be loved, yet the other person gets fed up and uptight. overall, a frustrating situation.

    General CommentI think this song is about people getting to know each other and the other one is really nervous around her. She wants things to just work out naturally without forcing it. The best relationships are the ones that just work out without having to force conversation or worrying about what to talk about next.

    General CommentUpset over a relationship going bad because the other person is giving up. And she wants them to calm down, to go with it like rock and roll. Stop getting uptight and ride all the bad times out and stick with me.

    General CommentSara said that when she wrote this song, she wasn't getting along with Tegan too well and wrote the song about feeling trapped.

    General Commentfor me,this song is about those relationships that are never quite real relationships for one reason or another..
    one person or the other refuses to just give into it.
    "pull on my hand and say, please let's just make it this way"

    the relationship tense, and everything becomes a struggle
    "I know you plan out everything that you want to say
    I wish that we didn't have to go about things this way"
    "don't get so uptight"

    and one person isn't looking things from the other person's perspectives
    "Tell me you love me like you think you want to be loved"
