And if you knew what I know
You wouldn't go to see her
And least of all believe her when she says
That she wants you

You're just another puppet
She's not even keeping score
And the lazy way she cheats you leaves me cold
She'll laugh about you to her petty friends
But you don't know

'Cause if you knew what I know
You wouldn't go to see her
And least of all believe her when she says
That she wants you

She spends her daddy's money
And she drives her daddy's car
And what's crazy is the way you think that's style
And all the while my heart is breaking
You're not even on her mind

'Cause if you knew what I know
Babe, you wouldn't leave me
You wouldn't turn away from my love
- It's what you said that you believed in

I say this as your friend:
You'll be the poor boy in the end

    General CommentBabe, you wouldn't leave me
    You wouldn't turn away from my love
    - It's what you said that you believed in

    That is the part -- shreds everything

    General CommentHa, I can really relate to this song. A girl gets ditched for some immature fool, and is still in love with the boy who left her. So sad that these situations happen so often.

    General Comment"And what's crazy is the way you think that's style" is my favorite line in the song. It captures the emotional essence of the song flawlessly.

    General Commenti think it means that she was head over heels for this guy. and he leaves her for this girl that doesnt even care about him. so shes left heartbroken while he's in a relationship that isn't doing anything and will end up breaking his heart

    General CommentI heard Neko in concert and she said that this was "a bitchy lady song" that she wrote with the Sadies from Toronto, Ontario. I agree with what the other people said in terms of meaning.
