"It Hurts" as written by and Thomas Delonge....
It hurts [x17]

Is this what you want?
'Cause everybody acts without a clue
Every little kiss and grin you gave
Was just a little bullshit I saw through

The alcohol is scented with your breath
You're always all done up to just be used
I'm waiting for excuses that deceive
I'll meet you in the back to see them through

How did I let her inside?
We're dripping of sweat, I'm feeling alright
Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
Your best friend is not your girlfriend

How did I let her inside?
We're dripping of sweat, I'm feeling alright
Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
Your best friend is not your girlfriend

It hurts [x17]

Are you out of your mind?
You dug yourself into a liar's hole
You made a little spark to live inside
It's now a fucking fire out of control
And when the morning comes you'll act surprised
And when the word gets out it will get old
And every day you'll try to live your life
And every little scandal will unfold

How did I let her inside?
We're dripping of sweat, I'm feeling alright
Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
Your best friend is not your girlfriend

Sherrie, do you want it?
Sherrie, I want it too
Sherrie, do you want it?
Sherrie, I want it too

How did I let her inside?
We're dripping of sweat, I'm feeling alright
Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
Your best friend is not your girlfriend

(It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts)
(It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts) Your best friend is not your girlfriend
(It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts)
(It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts) Your best friend is not your girlfriend
(It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts)
(It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts) Your best friend is not your girlfriend
(It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts)
(It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts) Your best friend is not your girlfriend

    General CommentI think it means that he dates his best friend but he realizes that she wasn't it al had cracked up to be like in the first verse he talks about alcohol on her breath and the smile was a loada bullshit in which i think she cheated on him but im in that sorta position im in love with one of my best friends and it sucks anyways back to the song were was i.... oh yer well the simplest way i canput it all is
    Guy goes out with his best friend
    Best friend is a drinker and a liar
    Best friend cheats on him
    Song about never to go out with your best friend in which we all no not to do

    General Commentafter a fight between myself and my best friend, we didnt talk for a while,. and during that time she sent me a letter with the lyrics to this song, explaining how she felt about my lifstyle, i got pretty deep into a world of drinnking and messing around with alot of guys, she explained to me that it hurt her to see me having to cover my pain like that,
    "Is this what you want? Cause everybody acts without a clue.
    Every little kiss and grin you gave, was just a little bullshit I saw through.
    The alcohol is scented with your breath, you're always all done up just to be used,"
    she said this is exactly how she felt every night id drag her out to parties where i would get used bu guys left right and center,
    "Are you out of your mind, you dug yourself into a liar's hole, You made a little spark to live inside, it's now a fuckin fire out of control. And when the morning comes you'll act surprised, And when the word gets out it will get old, And everyday you'll try and live your life, and every little scandal will unfold"
    she told me that the little spark i made was the first time it happened, and she asked my why i let it happen, i told her i needed to do it, ifelt insecure, the spark to live inside, became a fire out of control when i was happening every night.
    and when the truth got out, it always got old.
    and i tried to live my life after alot of it, but every scandal did unfold, i got a bad reputation, and everything crashed around me, until i met someone i fell in love with, i got hurt brutally, and after that, i got back into my ways, and this song became more true to my life.
    that is how i relate to this song
    and it means all of that to me.
    she was exactly right in trying to change me, she wanted to help me.. she didnt want to see me get used anymore, it hurt her, as my best friend.... thats what i feel this song is about.
