"I'm Your Villain" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
You toss in a word
I'm your villain
I see the passion emerged
I'm your villain
But serious
You're so serious
Like a waiter
Hating the rich
But taking their tips

If I could laugh, I'd love you
If I could smile at anything you said
We could be laughing lovers
I think you prefer to be miserable instead
If I could love, I'd love you
If I could love like anybody else

I know what I am
I'm your villain
I don't give a damn
I'm your villain
Because serious
You're so serious
But I got ready salted
Ready on your belly
If you want to have fun

See you later

    General CommentMy take on this song is that there are two people who are completely attracted to each other, yet they "hate" each other. If they just gave into what's between them they could be happy, but for now they're going to be miserable and loathe one another. But they'll get together sooner or later.

    Two words: Sexual tension.

    General CommentHehe, this song is awesome. Love the lyric:
    Like a waiter hating the rich
    But taking their tips
    About a disgruntled couple?

    General CommentJust saw this song live yesterday, so awesome!
    Anyone know what the missing line is after "living lovers"? Think it has something to do with topless dancers..

    General CommentActual lyrics are:


    You toss in a word
    I'm your villain
    I see the passion emerge
    I'm your villain
    But serious
    You're so serious
    Like a waiter
    Hating the rich
    But taking their tips
    If I could laugh I'd love you
    If I could smile at anything you said
    We could be laughing lovers
    I think you'd prefer to be miserable instead
    If I could love I'd love you
    If I could love like anybody else
    I know what I am
    I'm your villain
    I don't give a damn if
    I'm your villain
    Because serious
    You're so serious
    But I've got ready salted
    ready on your belly
    If you want to have fun
    See you later

    General CommentNice song. I think he's talking about a chick that's depressed or bored and thinks he's the only one who could make her life intresting. He knows this, but doesnt particularly care as she's too serious and miserable for him.

    General CommentI'm almost sure the first part is about Bob. Especially with the fact that it was originally called "Blonde Ambition" after Michael's nickname for him. The waiter hating the rich but taking their tips and all that? Bob is the type to get really heated in debates about stuff. He's so serious. I think the "If I could laugh, I'd love you" is supposed to be him.

    The last line, Alex said was just referencing something a girl once told him a date of hers did.
