Well well look at you.
Little miss has to pick up the wound.
And that's so literal and you're so critical.
Well if you feel like theres a cause to be cold you can straddle the stove.
I'm a man not a handbag.
A friend not a servant.
Its hell being right all the time.
I wouldn't call this dating.
I'll get to know ya the hardway.
Lifes bittersweet; thats what they say.

Well well well with a woman like you who needs to get out fo bed.
Well well well with a woman like you who needs to have anyfriend.

I wouldn't call this dating.
I'll get to know ya the hardway.
Lifes bittersweet; thats what they say.

Come whisper in my ear a secret so profound.
I'll forget to write it down. Now I'm left here with the memory of the best and the worst thing I'll ever love. Aren't we a perfect mess.

I wouldn't call this dating.
I'll get to know ya the hardway.
Lifes bittersweet; thats what they say.

Come whisper in my ear a secret so profound.
I'll forget to write it down. Now I'm left here with the memory of the best and the worst thing I'll ever love. Aren't we a perfect mess.

    General CommentI love this song. New album rocks, a great come back from Heroine.. The lyrics are pretty straight forward

    When I figured out they were saying "I'm a man not a handbag. A friend not a servant" I was driving and I laughed so hard I almost drove off the road. True Story.

    Well, well look at you
    little miss has to pick the wounds
    and that’s so literal, and your so critical
    well if you feel like there's cause to be cold you can straddle the stove
    I'm a man not a handbag, a friend not a servant
    is it hell being right all the time?

    I wouldn’t call this dating
    Ill get to know you the hard way
    Life's bitter-sweet, that's what they say

    Well, well, well with a woman like you who needs to get out of bed
    Well, well, well with a woman like you who needs to have any friends
    Come whisper in my ear a secret so profound I'll forget to write it down
    Now left here with, the memory of the best and worst thing ill ever love

    I wouldn’t call this dating
    Ill get to know you the hard way
    Life's bitter-sweet, that's what they say
    I wouldn’t call this dating

    Ill get to know you the hard way
    Life's bitter-sweet, that's what they say
    That’s what they say
    Some things will never change
    Some things will never

    Aren’t we the perfect mess
    Aren’t we the perfect mess
    Aren’t we the perfect mess
