"Sweet Valium High" as written by David Katz, Sam Hollander and Charlotte Sometimes....
You can have me dye my pale skin
You can beat me, I'll love you while I bruise
You can take me, drug my chapped lips
You can hurt me, I'll love you while I trip

But do you think of her, hands on my waist?
And do you think of me when she screams your name?

Don't want you to drug me up, it all just hurts too much
Don't want you to drug me up, your torture was meant to be love

Do you want it?
'Cause when you fuck me
You are loving me and I am owning you
Do you hate me?
Want to teach me that my place with you
Is lying on my knees?

But do you think of her, hands on my waist?
And do you think of me when she screams your name?

Don't want you to drug me up, it all just hurts too much
Don't want you to drug me up, your torture was meant to be love

We can have a pretty house
We can have a pretty car
We can have pretty things
I know that's what you are

    General CommentShe uses the metaphor of the high and impending crash of being on a drug to getting her hopes smashed by someone who doesn't care about her as much as she does him...

    General CommentI think that this song is about a girl who is in love for a guy who she knows is bad for her. She knows he's only going to hurt her and that it is a bad relationship, but she can't break her addiction to him, thus using a drug metaphor.
    She has fooled herself into thinking his hurtfulness is a way of showing he cares. "your torture was meant to be love"

    General Commentyeah i agree.. i think she's comparing the 'sweet valium high' to the feeling of being content in a relationship without any problems.

    General Comment'Cause when you fuck me
    You are loving me and I am owning you

    By far my favorite part of the song. I'm sure other people have experienced the whole 'friends with benefits' relationship. In this song the girl has feelings for the guy, but they're not reciprocated. So she sleeps with his because in that moment it's like he loves her back and he's really hers. brilliant.

    Basically means, no matter how much he hurts her, she's going to continue loving him.

    "But do you think of her - hands on my waist?
    And do you think of me when she screams your name?"

    It isn't a relationship. It's just friends with benefits. There's another girl besides her.

    "Don't want you to drug me up, it all just hurts too much
    Don't want you to drug me up, your torture was meant to be love"

    She's trying to convince herself that all the pain he puts her through is because he loves her.

    "Do you want it?
    'Cause when you fuck me
    You are loving me and I am owning you"

    She feels that they are in a relationship when they have sex.

    "Do you hate me?
    Want to teach me that my place with you
    Is lying on my knees?"

    In reality, he doesn't love her and all he is to her is just a way to get off.

    "We can have a pretty house
    We can have a pretty car
    We can have pretty things
    I know that's what you are"

    This represents how much she feels about him and all the possibilities they could have if they were together.

    General CommentWhen does she she "want"? All I hear is "Don't you drug me up."
