Your kisses are wasted on me

(Boy)
Can you see we're through?
(Boy)
I don't love you, you don't make me smile
For a while

(Boy)
Get out of my face
(Boy)
I'm gonna catch a chase some other guy
Who I might like

And you might cry for some time
(And you don't know it, no you don't know it)
And you might try to hold my hand again
(No, you don't know it)

Your kisses are wasted on me

(Boy)
You better hear me clear
(Boy)
I want you out of here
Don't send me wild
You're just a child

And you might cry for some time
(And you don't know it, no you don't know it)
And you might try to hold my hand again
(But you don't know it, no you don't know it)
And you might cry for some time
(You still don't know it)

Your kisses are wasted on me

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who is (trying) to break up with a guy, but he doesn't want to so he's trying in vain to get her back.
    I love The Pipettes. Best un-guilty pleasure ever.

    General CommentGreat tune, but i'm pretty sure the lyrics are;
    "And you might cry for some time"
    not
    "And you might cry half the time"

    General CommentIt's totally about how like, this girl, like, is breaking up with this girl, but like he doesn't want to be dumped, like he's all clingly, like.

    Anyway, enough non-similies, it's about relationships, like most songs. But it's sexeh. And it's like motown if motown was white and british

    General CommentI reckon it means that this girl doesn't need a guy just so he can complete her... she's fine being independent.

    General CommentFirst song of theirs I got addicted to. The meaning is pretty obvious: she's over him, but he just won't give up. He can kiss her and love on her all he wants, but she's made up her mind. He's wasting his time.
