I thought you put me in rapture
I never asked you to dump her
Thought you knew we'd have a high life

And still I see
Your philosophy
Falling through my tainted mind
Would you dig my dirt?
Cos I'm so desperate
Can't you see you're wasting time?
I failed to tell you, to tell you now

That I've been fooled
Cos I'm not cool
And the scissors slide
Away with my pride

Speeding down a dead-end track
I wanted you there's no way back
Got a destructive appetite

Oh baby please
Lift me off my knees
A little smile can go for miles
I may be young
But I will grow up strong
And by then she'll look like her mum

Just to be absolutely sure of the facts
I'm happy to act just as a side salad
Happy to act
Happy to pay
Happy to wait
Baby youre great
When your oven goes 'ping'
I'll be there on your plate
When her oven goes bang...

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a girl who is with a man who already is in a relationship.
    He dumped his girlfriend because he fell in love with the other girl or maybe just thought that the other girl expects him to decide between them or something.

    However, the singer never wanted this; she thinks that things were better before he left the other girl for her:
    "I never asked you to dump her
    Thought you knew we'd have a high life”
    Instead of putting her in rapture the man just messed up, now things are too serious.
    She really wanted him before ("destructive appetite", she took another girls boyfriend), but she did not want to be his number one, she was happy as a "side salad" and did not want to be the main course.

    Maybe the singer is much younger than the other woman is, because she says, "I may be young
    But I will grow up strong
    And by then she'll look like her mum"
    Eventually the man feels remorse and always tells her, she is too young for him and so she tells him that maybe she is young but the other girls will be old and not that pretty in a few years.
    At least if her mom does not look like Megan Fox, I think.
