The song is about an e-mail that Jaymay received from a person she told that they couldn't be friends....
I am not an ill-willed person
I do not wish bad things for you
Love the faces you've been dreamin' of
Embrace memory

Wear your coat, sing your song
But don't write me, we'll never really get along
You see, there's just too much I know already

Love everything
You've always loved
Love everything
You've always loved

Your long black hair and entourage
Of fans who care can't camouflage
The boy you've dared to love for years and years
Appears to mystery

And I, like you, believe in true love
But I know enough of it
To admit it won't deny truth
Constitutes his story

Love everything
You've always loved
Love everything
You've always loved

You're at his show
Standin' in the front row
But he let go a long time ago
And I know the past I do not want to know
And it's out of my hands
It's all out of my hands

And I am not an ill-willed person
Ah, but your question's my misfortune
Who cares who's complicated, girl?!
And who's the crooked Jane?

And you are not an ill-willed person
You've never even thought to torture me
But has he run to you
In those shoes in the rain?

Love everything
You've always loved
Love everything
You've always loved
Love everything
You've always loved
Love everything
You've always loved

    My InterpretationTo me, it seems like this song is written to a girl who is currently with the speaker's ex-boyfriend. This new girl is being neglected by this boy, probably as the first girl was, but doesn't want to listen to her advice.
    Great song.
