I used to be so warm hearted until
She started freezing my blood
That girl had intent to kill
But she is not cold enough

I used to have so many more friends
Till she started scaring all of them
Now that she's my ex
I don't ever want to see her again

Girl, I will forget you
Like I always do
Girl, I'll find someone new
Who looks nothing like you
Girl, I will forget you
Like you never wanted me to
Girl, I'll find someone new
That reminds me nothing of you

I used to have so many more friends
Till she started scaring them to death
Now that she's my ex
Guys, I want to be friends again

I got this funny feeling that
You don't think I'm really leaving well
I used to have so many more friends
And now I'm taking them back again

Girl, I will forget you
Like I always do
Girl, I'll find someone new
Who looks nothing like you
Girl, I will forget you
Like you never wanted me to
Girl, I'll find someone new
That reminds me nothing of you

When you hear me on your radio tell them
"He wrote this for me,
Ex-boyfriend on my stereo,
No, that boy went crazy"

I'll forget that you ever lived
And I'll forget that you ever existed
And girl you'd better hope my new girlfriend
Never finds out what you did

Um, I wanted you to know that, err

Girl, I will forget you
Like I always do
Girl, I'll find someone new
Who looks nothing like you
If my new girlfriend finds out what you said
You're fucking dead
Girl, I'll find someone new
That reminds me nothing of you

When you hear me on your radio, well tell them
"He wrote this for me,
Ex-boyfriend on my stereo,
No, that boy went crazy"

I'll forget that you ever lived
And I'll forget that you ever existed
And girl you'd better hope my new girlfriend
Never finds out what you did

Girl you'd better hope my new girlfriend
Never finds out what you did

    My InterpretationBasically he used to be really friendly, popular, charismatic etc “warm hearted” but when he got this girlfriend, she caused him to withdraw from all that “started freezing my blood”. He now believes (either genuinely or just out of spite) that it was her intent to separate him from his friends and social life so that she could have him to herself “that girl had intent to kill” — referring to his other relationships. He then says that it didn’t work, because “she is not cold enough” or possibly strong enough to severe those ties.

    I used to be so warm hearted until
    She started freezing my blood
    That girl had intent to kill
    But she is not cold enough


    This bit’s self explanatory, he used to have heaps of friends, but the intense relationship between him and this girl started fazing them out. Possibly she was a bit weird, since he says “scaring all of them”, which could ether mean she was creeping them out, or literally trying to scare them away from him/their relationship.
    He then states that now he’s done with her, he never wants to see her, and we can assume that’s because he’s realised how she’s been damaging to his other relationships.

    I used to have so many more friends
    Till she started scaring all of them
    Now that she's my ex
    I don't ever want to see her again


    Again, pretty self explanatory, he says that he’ll forget about her. The chorus seems very bitter, possibly he’s alluding to the fact that she tried to make him forget everyone else, and so he’s turning the tables on her.

    Girl, I will forget you
    Like I always do
    Girl, I'll find someone new
    Who looks nothing like you
    Girl, I will forget you
    Like you never wanted me to
    Girl, I'll find someone new
    That reminds me nothing of you


    Almost the same as before, but here he addresses his friends directly. It seems pretty bad to me, like he’s been hanging out with this chick, doesn’t want her anymore and is all like “Guys, I want to be friends again [you know, now I’ve finished ditching you]”

    I used to have so many more friends
    Till she started scaring them to death
    Now that she's my ex
    Guys, I want to be friends again


    He feels that she thinks he’s only bluffing, and can’t believe he’d choose his friends over her, but he insists she’s not even worth a second thought on the matter. The last line “and now I’m taking them back” seems like he’s taking them back from her, because she took them off him and put them away out of site, so now he’s saying he’s just gonna take back what is his.

    I got this funny feeling that
    You don't think I'm really leaving well
    I used to have so many more friends
    And now I'm taking them back again

    Girl, I will forget you
    Like I always do
    Girl, I'll find someone new
    Who looks nothing like you
    Girl, I will forget you
    Like you never wanted me to
    Girl, I'll find someone new
    That reminds me nothing of you


    That when she’s with her friends she’ll not only claim the connection to him “he wrote this for me, ex-boyfriend on my stereo” but deny that it was her fault, claiming “that boy went crazy”. The way she says “ex-boyfriend on MY stereo” shows how possessive she was in the relationship, and how this has influenced his opinion of her to the point where he sees her as claiming everything for herself.

    When you hear me on your radio tell them
    "He wrote this for me,
    Ex-boyfriend on my stereo,
    No, that boy went crazy"


    Same old, but with a twist. In this bit the story progresses, he for the first time out right blames her “what you did”. He also, in that cocky, delicious, Wez way of his, states that he will have a new girlfriend, and she will care enough for him to hate his ex for (possibly?) hurting him, or wronging him. Either that, or he doesn’t want his new girl finding out his vulnerabilities or whatever.

    I'll forget that you ever lived
    And I'll forget that you ever existed
    And girl you'd better hope my new girlfriend
    Never finds out what you did


    More of that delicious, spiteful, biting, taunting, Wez sarcasm

    Um, I wanted you to know that, err


    Same old, but again with the mention of her doing something wrong and the new girl who will replace her not digging it. His tone gets harsher, “you’re fucking dead” and it changes from “Never finds out what you did” to “finds out what you said” which increases the likeliness he feels she did a number of things wrong.

    Girl, I will forget you
    Like I always do
    Girl, I'll find someone new
    Who looks nothing like you
    If my new girlfriend finds out what you said
    You're fucking dead
    Girl, I'll find someone new
    That reminds me nothing of you

    When you hear me on your radio, well tell them
    "He wrote this for me,
    Ex-boyfriend on my stereo,
    No, that boy went crazy"

    I'll forget that you ever lived
    And I'll forget that you ever existed
    And girl you'd better hope my new girlfriend
    Never finds out what you did

    Girl you'd better hope my new girlfriend
    Never finds out what you did

    So basically this song is about a girl that he will never forget, but who he obviously loathes for what she did to him. He’s telling her can replace her easily enough, with old friends and new girlfriends, and implying that she should never forget what she did to him, he leaves and unsaid threat in the air so that she will remain cautious of the consequences. The beginning of the song is him all “I’m leaving, I’m getting my life back, you won’t stop me” but by the end it’s all about her, how she’s going to feel, and how he wants her to feel. I’m guessing it’s a break up that meant a lot to him, but now the girl doesn’t mean anything, so he’s going to forget her, but the way he repeats this throughout the song shows how he’s contradicting himself, and basically just trying to spite her.

    Just some ideas I had
