"I Don't Want You Now" as written by and Katie Tunstall....
Show me what it is you've done,
Pull the covers off in front of everyone
Sure you want to the saw seams
What you created for yourself in spite of me,

You can try to tie me down,
You can try to string me up,
But you'd have no luck now,

Please don't ever let me down again,
It shouldn't be allowed
Please don't ever make me frown again,
You have shown me how!,
Please don't try to be my friend again,
Cuz I don't want you
I don't want you now
I don't want you now,

So now you've learned to make your bed,
Far be it for me to be the one to pay your head,
The truth is that i could've pulled you up,
But you'd already advertised that I'd
slashed the tires of your one man show

You can try to tie me down,
You can try to stitch me up,
But you'd have no luck now,

Please don't ever let me down again,


It shouldn't be allowed
Please don't ever make me frown again,
You have shown me how!,
Please don't try to be my friend again,
Cuz I don't want you
I don't want you now
I don't want you now,

I don't want you now
NO I don't want you now
NO I don't want you now
NO I don't want you now

The truth is that i could've pulled you up!

You can try to tie me down,
You can try to stitch me up,
But you'd have no luck now,

Please don't ever let me down again,
It shouldn't be allowed
Please don't ever make me frown again,
You have shown me how!,
Please don't try to be my friend again,
Cuz I don't want you
I don't want you now
I don't want you now,
I don't want you now!

    General CommentI'm not very good at meanings, until Ive heard the song a few times. Only just bought the album, so i need a bit more time. But I have fallen in love with this track already. Because to me, right now, I DONT WANT YOU NOW, means sooooo much. after a rather rough weekend of seeing the ex. But anyway, I love KT's voice.

    General CommentI think the words are

    So now you learned to make your bed
    Far be it from me to be the one to pat your head

    General Commentit's a great song! aAh!

    I am not sure but I think it is about a guy that she was dating and he told someone that he was dating KT.

    and we all know what happens if you're famous and in love: the papparazi keep stalking you.

    I think thats what these lines mean:

    "Show me what it is you've done
    Pull the covers off in front of everyone
    So you want us all to see
    What you created for yourself in spite of me"

    General CommentI think it's about a messy break up, and he told everyone that it was her fault (But you already advertised that I had slashed the tires, Of your one man show) But she knows that it was his fault (Show me what it is you've done, Pull the covers off in front of everyone) And now he has someone else (So now you learned to make your bed) and she's just getting over the relationship.

    Thats my idea anyways.

    Song MeaningBreak-up song!
    I think the song kind of explains itself. You're done with them, you don't want to see them, they only make you unhappy.
