I saw you at the grocery store,
You both looked happy.
Pickin' out your usual,
She's a carbon copy.
Of everything you lost,
Of everything I'm not.
I guess you forgot--
How to pick 'em.

If she's the one I've heard about
I'm disappointed.
If she's the reason why you left
I'm not impressed at all.
Well this looks like the end.
Yeah, we can still be friends.
Congratulations.

Let me be the first
To wish you the worst.
Because I think you deserve eachother.
Let me be the curse
That creeps under your skin
Until your heart caves in,
And you wish she was me again.
And again, and again, and again, and again.

Someone had to tell the truth,
And I'm always honest.
I read you like an open book,
And it's obvious to me
She's just the one between,
Headed nowhere fast,
Sure it's gonna last, forever.

Let me be the first
To wish you the worst.
Because I think you deserve eachother.
Let me be the curse
That creeps under your skin
Until your heart caves in,
And you wish she was me--oh!

Let me be the first
To wish you the worst.
Because I think you deserve eachother.
Let me be the curse
That creeps under your skin
Until your heart caves in,
And you wish she was me again.
And again.
Oh you wish, you wish, you wish.

    General CommentThis song is really self explanitory

    She's basically talking to her ex about his new girlfriend. She kinda says how she thinks he's an ass but she still wants him to like her

    I love the sarcasm in this song. You can hear it in her voice as she sings

    General Commentwhat a nice christian message : )

    i, personally: a) am very sarcastic, b) am very bitter, c) hold grudges, and d) am not christian, or religious, so...

    i like this song. nothing to complain about. but i keep hearing christians peppering themselves into conversations like these, and typically the statement they make is hypocritical. so i think it's only fitting we point out her own hypocrisy in this song, as compared to, say, "faith won't fail."

    General CommentI love Katys voice on this and her older songs like Your So Gay, very sarcastic and forthrite no hidden meanings but cleverly done with the sarcastic tones. Brilliance
