baby my ears are open and i'm watching you,
that language your body's speaking
it makes me sick,
and you're not so smooth,
'cause you do it for the thrill and we're watching you.
yeah, we're watching you.

you're in love with love,
you're not in love with him,
i can tell by the way you play it off,
like you don't know what you're doing to him.

we've heard all about you,
we know your every move,
'cause you're paper thin,
and it's visible,
and with or without you he'll make it through,
'cause you're paper thin and it's visible.

when i get the chance to expose the truth,
i'm gonna make my move,
i'm gonna make my move,
'cause you're all two sides & you're struggling.
we wont let this slide,
no, not this time.

    General Commentthis song is about how a guy is fed up with a girl that is really really fake, and toys with boy's emotions, and that has to stop. Because that's not fair.

    General Commenthis voice is amazing :)
    but yeah I think this song is about a girl who's in love with the idea of love and she's fake and she's powerful to the naive boy.but the singer in this case knows her all too well

    General Commenti agree that its about a girl who's in love with the idea of love. maybe its about a girl john dated and realized she was fake and now she's dating another guy and john wants to tell everyone how fake she is.[when i get the chance to expose the truth,
    i'm gonna make my move,
    i'm gonna make my move,]

    General Comment I love this song! Anyway I think that this song is about a dude who has a thing for this girl who wastes her time with guys she has no real interest in. She plays boys, and the guy thinks that maybe if he exposes her to everyone, he might get to have her all to himself. Either he gets to have her or no one at all.

    General CommentLove this song. It's a pretty easy song to understand. I think it's basically about John telling a girl to either change or leave the guy she's dating because she's not in the relationship for the right reasons. It's possible the girl dated him before and now she's with one of his friends or he just knows the guy from somewhere.
