"Everything Back But You" as written by Avril Ramona Lavigne and Butch Walker....
Today was the worst day: I went through hell
I wish I could remove it from my mind
Two months away from you, but I couldn't tell
I thought that everything was gonna be just fine

The postcard that you wrote with the stupid little note
Something wasn't quite right about it
Smelled like cheap perfume, and it didn't smell like you
There is no way you can get around it
Because you wrote

I wish you were her
You left out the "E"
You left without me
And now you're somewhere out there with a
Bitch, slut, psychopath
I hate you; why are guys so lame?
Everything I gave you
I want everything back but you

My friends tried to tell me all along
That you weren't the right one for me
My friends tried to tell me to be strong
I bet you didn't think that I would see

The postcard that you wrote with the stupid little note
Something wasn't quite right about it
I wanna see you cry like I did a thousand times
Now you're losing me, you're losing me now
'Cause you wrote

I wish you were her
You left out the "E"
You left without me
And now you're somewhere out there with a
Bitch, slut, psychopath
I hate you; why are guys so lame?
Everything I gave you
I want everything back but you

The postcard that you wrote with the stupid little note
Something wasn't quite right about it
Smelled like cheap perfume, and it didn't smell like you
There is no way you can get around it
Because you wrote

I wish you were her
You left out the "E"
You left without me
And now you're somewhere out there with a
Bitch, slut, psychopath
I hate you; why are guys so lame?
Everything I gave you
I want everything back but you

I wish you were her
You left out the "E"
You left without me
Everything back but you
I wish you were her
You left out the "E"
You left without me
Everything back but you

    General CommentPretty clear what it is about. She had a boyfriend and she went away for a while and while she was away he cheated on her and she found out. She hates him for cheating on her and the girl because she made her boyfriend cheat. She wished she had listened to her friends when they said he was the wrong guy for her.

    Actually, she just wants her life back but without him.


    So love this song…

    General Commentthe rest of the lyrics are:

    the postcard that you wrote
    With the stupid little note
    Something wasn't quite right about it
    I want to see you cry
    Like I did a thousand times
    Now you're losing me, you're losing me now

    Cause you wrote
    "I wish you were her"
    You left out the "e"
    You left without me
    And now you're somewhere out there with the bitch slut, pshcyo babe
