You were always trippin'
I was always stoned
You knew I was a piss-head
That’s why I never phoned
So why’d you act surprised
I was drunk on the day we met

When I see you with your new man
Something stirs inside of me
It’s not that I want you back
It’s how ugly love can be
Still my foolish pride
I couldn’t love you anyway

Like a baseball cap worn backwards
Like calling cocaine gear
Like a pair of Evisu jeans
We were so last year

And we got high all the time
Night after night
Line after line
How did I make "I love you" sound sincere
When you were just a one-night-stand
That lasted a year

We were always fighting
You thought the drama did us good
Well I found it really boring
Get off the cross we need the wood
Say hi to your mum and dad
It’s all their fault anyway

Like Patrick Cox and girl power
Jean Claude van Damme and Cheers
Vanilla Ice and Take That
We were so last year

Getting high all the time
Night after night
Line after line
How did I make "I love you" sound sincere
When you were just a one-night-stand
That lasted a year

Like a baseball cap worn backwards
Like calling cocaine gear
Like a pair of Evisu jeans
We were so last year

Getting high all the time
Night after night
Line after line
How did I make "I love you" sound sincere
When you were just a one-night-stand
That lasted a year

All in the name of entertainment
We could come to some arrangement
Just a one-night-stand
That lasted a year

    General CommentThis song is called "Ugly Love", but it still moves something inside of me. It has got a lot of (I think) random names and comparisons but the message I get in the end is how Robbie was touched by someone who ended up letting him down. How much he hates that person but can't help but feel her as an important part of his past, to the extent of inspiring a song. He seems to be talking about someone who shared his enviroment and drug habits, maybe an actress or a singer, but I don't know who.

    Maybe it's the way he sings it...but I don't believe him when he says he doesn't care...I think he's just being angry and rude because he's being so hurt. And I can relate to that feeling of being mad of someone from moving on like nothing had happened, it makes me despise love itself...but the truth is that I've been let down and heartbroken.
