"Classified" as written by and Bob Mould....
I know (Oh, oh)
And it's classified
Love, making on the bedroom floor
I, told you that I wanted nothing more

From such a simple day
And all these simple games, (That I play)
And the songs I write
Oh, they started in the bed
From things I might have said
Did you really think I meant them?

Did you really think, I meant every word that I said?
When we're lying in your bed, head to head
And I can't get enough
Girl I think, you're the one that lied
When you talked to all your friends
And they, never were on your side

And there's a time and a place for this
It was a while ago, while I was away
And I'm not coming home

I'm never coming home

And now, I've got you
Wrapped around my finger
Secrets of this stranger
I'm keeping you up all night, (All night)

And did you really think, I meant every word that I said?
When we're lying in your bed, head to head
And I can't get enough
Girl I think, you're the one that lied
When you talked to all your friends
You know they, never were on your side

There's a time and a place for this
It was a while ago, while I was away
And I'm not coming home

(I've got you, wrapped around my finger)
(Secrets to this stranger)
(Keeping you up all night)
(Woah, oh)
(Woah, oh)
(Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah)

Did you really think, I meant every word that I said?
When we're lying in your bed, head to head
And I can't get enough
Girl I think, you're the one that lied
When you talked to all your friends
And they, never were on your side

And there's a time and a place for this
It was a while ago, while I was away
And I'm not coming home

    General Commentthis song is about the singer cheating on his girlfrined while he's on tour w/a girl in tx and the drama: his gf finding out and him turning against the girl he cheated on her with which is why its "CLASSIFIED love making on the bedroom floor". his gf finds out while hes still on tour which is why he says "theres a time and a place for this" and tries to defend himself by saying it happened "a while ago while i was away and im not coming home" and "secrets of this stranger keeping you up all night" about the gf being kept up by the other girls secret. the other parts are to spite the girl for telling on him to his gf and to downplay the things he said to her saying he never meant any of it and mocking her for trying to get his friends on her side.
    maybe? kind of an angry kinda song.
    :]

    General CommentI think this is about a guy just using a girl for sex and not really thinking it's a big deal, and the girl lying to her friends and saying that they really care about each other, even if she knows they don't love each other or anything. "I told you that I wanted nothing more" is him saying that he didn't want anything other then sex. When he says, "did you really think i meant every word i said? When we're lying in your bed, head-to-head" He's saying that he shouldn't really be listening to what he's saying, because he's just saying it to get in her pants basically. It's kinda sad, but he points out in the beginning that he didn't want a relationship.
