"No Good" as written by and Kate Elizabeth Voegele....
I never feared the unexpected
'Till I found myself in this peculiar place
Unaware of where I was headed
Turns out it was your footsteps I had chased

Well I should know so much better than this
But you've occupied the center of my universe

I'm moving in reverse
Under your mighty curse
I hate myself for loving you
I turn my head away
But my heart will remain
'Till the day I learn you're no good for me

It's illogical and it's outrageous
The way I let you keep me hangin' on
Your character is that contagious
I know I should have thought before I had done
I've gone and let my impulse be my guide
And on that note I'll be defenseless for some time

I'm moving in reverse
Under your mighty curse
I hate myself for loving you
I turn my head away
But my heart will remain
'Till the day I learn you're no good for me

Hey you there keep your distance
Don't you come around here
Don't test my patience baby
'Cause I ain't gonna let you off easy

I'm moving in reverse
Under your mighty curse
I hate myself for loving you
I turn my head away
But my heart will remain
'Till the day I learn you're no good for me

'Till the day I learn you're no good
'Till the day I learn you're no good for me

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good, you're no good for me
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good for me

Ooh you're no good
Ooh you're no good
No good for me

    General CommentI think she's in love with him, and she knows she shouldn't be. Everyone is telling her that he's no good for her, and part of her knows it too. She keeps trying to tell herself to leave him, but she just can't. So she'll stay with him until her heart can handle being without him.

    General CommentI think it's pretty obvious that this song is about a girl trusting a guy and realizing that it was a mistake when he lets her down.

    "Don't test my patience baby
    'Cause I aint gonna let you off easy"

    Just basically says it all.

    It's like she's retracing her steps in order to get back to the person she was before she met him and now she's not just going to forgive him for everything he's done.

    I dunno, that's just what i got.

    General Commenti think this song is about losing herself, and she relizes that she is in love with her ex, but he is no good for her, meaning hes bad, but she loves him even though hes not good for her. she dosent want to love him, but she cant help it, shes drawn to him. she thinks she's crazy for loving him, but she let her heart lead her and not her head. i dono thats wat i get from it because it relates to my situation and thats what i get from it anyway

    General CommentI heard it on One Tree Hill too!

    I think tinanalynn is right. The girl still loves the boy...even though she knows he's no good for her.. but she can't help it.

    '' I hate myself for loving you / I turn my head away/ But my heart will remain '' I think it says it all..

    * But I don't know what to think about this line'' Till the day I learn you're no good for me "

    It's like...she's saying that she knows he's no good for her...but she doesn't want to believe it yet...but when she does...then it's gonna be over...
    whatever the song is amazing!

    General CommentThis song can be interpreted many ways, but the way I see it is that it's about a girl who is taken and who ends up falling for another guy who would be no good for her that she knows she shouldn't like.

    General Commenti can relate to this song more than anything.
    it's about a girl who is falling back in love with someone she knows she shouldn't.
    The guy i like is my best friend, and we have had so much history, and he has hurt me so much, and everyone tells me i can do better
