Was a bright, and sweet, and hot summer day
The day I didn't love you anymore
Some little cue wound up my poor heart which had stopped
As I walked to the grocery store

All the people lingered although they didn't know
And they smiled at me as I passed
'Cause they've been there before
And they've come back again
And they always go right back for more

Love, love, love
You're a whore
You're a whore
You're a whore
Love, love, love, love
'Cause we beat you and mistreat you
But time after time
You take us back
And kiss us hard on the mouth

Oh, kiss us hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kiss us hard on the mouth
Who-oh-ore
Kiss us hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kiss us hard
Hard on the mouth

Was a bright, and sweet, and hot summer day
The day I didn't love you anymore
Couldn't see your face
Couldn't taste your taste
Couldn't hallucinate your embrace
All had vanished without a trace

Love, love, love
You're a whore
You're a whore
You're a whore
Love, love, love, love
'Cause we bruise you and abuse you
But time after time
You take us back
And kiss us hard on the mouth

Oh, kiss us hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kiss us hard on the mouth
Who-oh-ore
Kiss us hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kiss us hard, hard on the mouth

Was a bright and sweet and hot summer day
The day I didn't love you anymore
Some little cue wound up my poor heart which had stopped
As I walked to the grocery store

All the people lingered although they didn't know
And they smiled at me as I passed
'Cause they've been there before
And they've come back again
And they always run right back for more

Love, love, love
You're a whore
You're a whore
You're a whore
Love, love, love, love
'Cause we cheat you and mistreat you
And beat you and bruise you
And use you and abuse you
And cruise you and lose you
But time after time
You take us back into your bed and
Kiss us
Harder
Hard on the mouth
Kiss us harder
Harder
Hard on the mouth
Kiss us hard, ha, hard, ha, harder on the mouth

Kiss us hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Kiss us hard on the mouth
Who-oh-ore
Kiss us hard on the mouth
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Kiss us hard
Hard
On the mouth

    Considering these lyrics, which, at least for me, add a little clarity, the song personifies love as a whore—beaten, mistreated, taken for granted, passed around, but, ultimately, ever forgiving and welcoming.

    Regina brilliantly depicts becoming jaded to the point of un-love and, by describing not being in love, is able to invoke the notion that people in general have a very masochistic approach to love: what most everyone works so hard to obtain, becomes boring and confining after it is achieved and comfortable. So love turns into a vicious cycle of falling in and falling out—when we have it, we take it for granted; and when we don’t have it, we go to extreme lengths to get it. Despite this, love never seems to run out. It’s always there, willing to take the abuse, kissing us harder every time.

    Song MeaningI don't think it's about a 'whore' at all, just about a girl who is in love with a guy who treats her like dirt. Although she sometimes thinks she is over him and can start moving on, she is actually weak on the inside and the second he calls her she is right back by his side where she started. He may physically and verbally abuse her, but this doesn't stop her from wanting and needing him, something which you see a lot of in relationships. She isn't a whore, that's just his perception of her because he can do what he likes and still get her to cater to his sexual needs.

    This is a link to a clearer version. :)

    I think this is about a prostitute. Do I really have to interpret the lines? Because I think they're pretty obvious. :P

    General CommentHmm, instead of "that Daddy loved a little more," I hear "the day I didn't love you anymore." Which really changes the meaning, doesn't it? Still, "that Daddy..." sounds possible too. I wonder which it really is.
