"She Just Happens to Date the Prince of Darkness" as written by and Eric Elbogen....
Where they met isn't relevant,
So let's just say in the Wisconsin Dells.
They drove fast through everywhere except Ohio.
Because the cops there tend to cause a big fuss,
And you can't have that when you're the Prince of Darkness.

But enough about him,
It's her you should keep an eye on.
But enough about him,
It's her you should keep an eye on.

She makes things, in her downtime,
From soldered, old computer chips.
And has a blog where she predicts brand new indie rock hits.
And she's normal and shy like the rest of us,
She just happens to date the Prince of Darkness.

But enough about him,
It's her you should keep an eye on.
But enough about him,
It's her you should keep an eye on.

    General CommentI feel this song is about that guy you know: the real badass, driving fast, full of himself, dark and moody and so completely over this thing every other peon on this planet calls life. Too sullen and angry to appreciate anything without a cynical eye. He's controlling.

    The prince of darkness.

    "And you can't have that when you're the prince of darkness" pokes a gentle jab at that image.

    And then there's that slightly weird girl, just a little off-beat. She's not like him, but she can escape with him. She makes things in her spare time out of the pieces everyone else throws away. She blogs, is quirky, but she's passive to him.

    But Say Hi wants us to remember, it's not the Princes of Darkness we need to worry about. It's the people just like us, quiet and shy, who are really important. And who could break at any time.

    General Commentor there's a girl that you like who is normal in every respect until you break up with her and she starts dating a complete d-bag and you don't understand why she picked him (completely dickhead) over you.

    My InterpretationI don't know too much about this band in a personal band member sense....but this song seems like it's almost saying something general about women/girls....she's dating the "prince of darkness", seen as a very evil character, and yet "it's her you should keep an eye on". That's just my interpretation.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a male who suffers from something along the lines of extreme depression, and he is dating a female who is normal and sweet, with hobbies and goals. The reason she should be watched after is because she will potentially start to feel the same darkness by being around him so often.

    I don't think that it is his intention to hurt her - he's simply the prince of his dark world. Depression unfortunately effects everyone around you, and she's in danger of having the life sucked out of her.
