Maybe if I did something real
You would like me more
And all of this would just go away

So please don't give it a second thought
'Cause I never did when I met you
Well, I guess it's all come back to me now

And you're all so sad
And that's just too bad
'Cause you always had
That chance to make it
Better in your head (head)

And I don't want her and I can't have her (If you knew exactly how I felt)
Of course that's what they said (You wouldn't like me anymore)
And you always do what they say
But of course you'll always do what they say

And you're all I want in this world
And you're all I think of all the time
I don't know why (Seems to like me)
Making everyone mad
They didn't like me

And you're all so sad and it's just too bad
'Cause you always had
That chance to make things (I wanted you to like me)
Seem better (I wanted you to like me)
In your own head (I wanted you to like me)

But of course you always do what they say
And of course you always do what they do

***

This girl is in a rock show
She'll rock it out like no one can
I'll stare at her
'Cause she's a rock star
She won't talk to me
'Cause she's a rock star
'Cause she's a rock star
'Cause she's a rock star
'Cause she's a rock star
'Cause she's a rock star
'Cause she's a rock star
'Cause she's a rock star

    General CommentI love this song so much. It's my favorite song by S (I like it even more than 5 Dollers). You can really feel Jenn's pain in these lyrics. This is a great choice for the final track as it ties up a lot of her relationship with the rock star girl who's mentioned throughout the album. Here, I've tried to clear up some of the lyrics (though I'm still not 100% certain):

    Maybe if I did something real
    You would like me more
    And all of this would just go away

    So please don't give it a second thought
    'Cause I never did when I met you
    Well, I guess it's all come back to me now

    And you're all so sad
    And that's just too bad
    'Cause you always had
    The chance to make it
    Better in your head (head)

    They don't want her and they can't have her (If you knew exactly how I felt)
    Of course that's what they said (You wouldn't like me anymore)
    And you always do what they say
    But of course you'll always do what they say

    And you're all I want in this world
    And you're all I think of all the time
    I don't know why (Didn't seems to like me)
    You're making everyone mad
    They didn't like me

    And you're all so sad and it's just too bad
    'Cause you always had
    The chance to make things
    Seem better than they are in your head (I wanted you to like me)
    But of course you always do what they say
    And of course you always do what they do

    General CommentMade some corrections here. The only substantial change I made is the line that goes "And I don't want her and I can't have her". I thought it made more sense than "THEY don't want her" -- she's restating what others have said about her to this girl.

    I think the meaning of this song is self-evident. Maybe that's just because I relate so much. Especially the first couple lines.

    For me, the peak of Sadstyle (the entire album, not just this song) is where she sings "And you're all I want in this world / And you're all I think of all the time". That sentiment is an old staple in songwriting, but the way Jenn sings it just breaks my heart. Such desperate sincerity. Carissa's Wierd is one of my favorite bands, and while I like Band Of Horses and Grand Archives well enough, after listening to Jenn's solo work, I think it's pretty clear to whom the spirit of that band belonged. Absolutely beautiful.

    General CommentNot certain, but I believe the at about 1:10 are saying "If you knew exactly how I felt, you wouldn't like me anyway," and then at 1:52 it goes, "Maybe someday, you could like me more. Maybe some day you could like me more. Maybe someday, maybe everyone out there could like me more. Maybe someday you could like me more.. ect."

    I could be wrong, but once I started hearing those lyrics the song became absolutely heart-wrenching to me. I also feel like the line "of course, I'll always do what they say," is more like "I always make the mistakes that other people say I do," and "Of course, you'll always do what they do," is about knowing you're going to get hurt in the end, just like the people who hurt you in the past.

    Pretty sure that's not how those lines are suppose to come off, but those are the feelings it gives me.
