"Revenge Is Sweeter (Than You Ever Were)" as written by Jessica Louise Origliasso, Lisa Marie Origliasso and Tobias Gad....
I saw it in the news
You told me they were wrong
And I stood up for you
'Cause I believed you were the one

You had all the chances in the world
To let me know the truth
What the hell's wrong with you?

Are you even listening when I talk to you?
Do you even care what I'm going through?
Your eyes stare and they're staring right through me
You're right there but it's like you never knew me

Do you even know how much it hurt,
That you gave up on me to be with her?
Revenge is sweeter than you ever were

I'm so mad at you right now
I can't even find the words
And you're on the way down
I can't wait to see you burn
You try to make me hate that girl
When I should be hating you
What the hell's wrong with you?

Are you even listening when I talk to you?
Do you even care what I'm going through?
Your eyes stare and they're staring right through me
You're right there but it's like you never knew me

Do you even know how much it hurt,
That you gave up on me to be with her?
Revenge is sweeter than you ever were
(Than you ever were)
Revenge is sweeter than you ever were

Nothing can save you now that it's over
I guess that you'll find out when you're no one
Don't say you're sorry now 'cause I just don't care

Nothing can save you now, nothing
Nothing can save you now, nothing

Are you even listening when I talk to you?
Do you even care what I'm going through?
You're eyes stare and they're staring right through me
You're right there but it's like you never knew me

Do you even know how much it hurt,
That you gave up on me to be with her?
Revenge is sweeter than you ever were
(Than you ever were)
Revenge is sweeter than you ever were

    General CommentClearly for an ex ****HINT: Ryan Cabrera***

    "I saw it in the news
    You told me they were wrong
    And I stood up for you"

    I think this is when rumors where spreading on Ryan and Riely, while dating Lisa.

    "And you're on the way down" ----> I think this quote is pretty obvious

    So true that.
    In the song, the form is exactly the same.
    It sounds exactly the same as his song haha.
    Major stab if I ever did see one.

    General CommentThis song is clearly about an ex... something as hurtful was revenge is sweeter then the person he is... she is obviously hurting in the song but is overcoming her pain.

    General Commenti agree with tinkers, i reckon its about an ex and she wants to get revenge on him because he has hurt her so much. I love the veronicas. I didn't know it was possible but this CD is just as good, if not better, as their other one.

    General CommentThis song is really really good. I looove the chorus, and how she gets more intense....it's good. I also like the beat and the synthesisers or whatever they are- good song.

    Someone should remix this.

    General CommentI think the song has to do with her and her bf, and when they were together, he was cheating on her, and she heard it, and he told her they were all wong, so she belived him. Then she finds out the real truth.. And then she feels hurt, but at the same time, has revenge..and her revenge will be sweeter than he ever was to her.

    i really love this song and the veronicas. =]

    General Commenthe is such a loser for cheating on her. you always think that the guys that are the good ones won't become cheaters but yet they always seem to become a cheater later on in the relationship for certain reasons.

    General Commentoh my god..
    this song relates to me in every way.

    "do you even know how much that hurt.
    that you gave up on me to be with her."

    the veronicas are too good.
