"Hot N Cold" as written by and Katy/gottwald Perry....
You change your mind
Like a girl changes clothes
Yeah you, PMS
Like a bitch
I would know

And you over think
Always speak
Cryptically

I should know
That you're no good for me

'Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up
(You) You don't really want to stay, no
(You) But you don't really want to go-o
You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down

We used to be
Just like twins
So in sync
The same energy
Now's a dead battery
Used to laugh bout nothing
Now you're plain boring

I should know that
You're not gonna change

'Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up
(You) You don't really want to stay, no
(You) But you don't really want to go-o
You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down

Someone call the doctor
Got a case of a love bi-polar
Stuck on a roller coaster
Can't get off this ride

You change your mind
Like a girl changes clothes

'Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up
You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up
(You) You don't really want to stay, no
(You) But you don't really want to go-o
You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down, down.

    General CommentI believe this song is about a guy who keeps saying he wants to be with her, but then decides he doesn't, and so on. Hence the line "Got a case of the love bipolar" and she continues to go back to him everytime he says he wants her back, no matter how much the breaking up happens. Such as the lines "Stuck on a rollercoaster,Can't get off this ride" and "We fight, we break up, We kiss, we make up"

    General CommentI honestly don't think it's about someone who is literally bi-Polar.

    I think it's more like, you can never tell from one day to the next whether they'll be in love/together (hot) or at war/apart (cold).

    as in, they have no clue whatsoever whether they wanna be together or not. they can't stay in the relationship long enough to figure out if they're a good coupel or not.

    General Commenti love katy perry!
    this song is just so much fun
    it's a get-up-and-dance song! :]
    its pretty obvious that it's about knowing you should end your relationship, but steel feeling attatched. And you can't seem to bring closure to it because you still have feelings for the person, but the relationship isn't what it once was.
    One of her best!

    General CommentThis explains my ex perfectly.
    He was always one extreme or the other, on a rollercoaster, even now after we broke up, he alternates between missing me and feeling like he meant nothing to me...i understand her frustration perfectly

    General CommentOh my.... this song explains exactly my feelings in my relationship with this girl. I just dont know what to do. We are together for a one month, and she is the initiator of our relationship...
    ...yeah, just like this:
    "(You) You don't really wanna stay, no
    (You) But you don't really wanna go..."

    General Commentthis song is so relatable! seriously!!
    it's being with a guy who wants you one second, then the next he doesnt. He ignores you, then he talks to you. He can't make up his mind you know? He has commitment problems. I love this song!!!
