Poison Ivy,
In better condition than I'd be,
Hook me to an IV,
I whisper "why me"

In the Freezer,
Your words give me seizures,
And if we take a breather,
We'll break up and be hurt

I won't let you buy cigarettes,
But I'll let you by with regret,
One thing I'll find a sure bet,
A caged bird will fly if she's left,
And I'll try not to cry,
Your fingers dry me eyes,
A memory I'll never forget

I've been wronged,
With little defense,
And I'll sing a song,
Of inconsequence,
And my days,
With you are numbered,
And I'll be amazed if we see another

I won't let you buy cigarettes,
But I'll let you by with regret,
One thing I'll find a sure bet,
A caged bird will fly if she's left.
And I'll try not to cry,
Your fingers dry my eyes,
A memory I'll never forget

So,
Now you're gone,
We always said that would be the best thing,
Now,
I fear I'm wrong,
Or at least that's what my heart is confessing
Cause I miss you,
And I wish you,
Were someone I could forget,
Cause I miss you,
And I wish you,
Were not number one on my list,
List of regrets,
And now I'm broken up,
Because We've broken up,
It's all a big "what if"
What if I'd spoken up,
For what I wanted

Poison Ivy,
In better condition than I'd be,
Hook me to an IV,
And I whisper "why me"

    General CommentI guess this is a break up song, and Matt is comparing the girl to poison ivy because she hurt him... I'm not too sure though

    General CommentI think that this is one of the most amazing songs in the world. Seriously. I think it is about a break-up/ broken heart as well.

    General CommentI think this song is about his relationship with katy perry. not sure but they did used to go out. i think what the song is saying is that they both agreed that it wasnt working out, but he still came out of the relationhip much worse and its just an amazing song :)
