"I almost told you that I loved you" as written by and James/esperance Michael....
You know I love it when you're down on your knees
And I'm a junkie for the way that you please
You shut me up when you swallow me down
My back to the wall you're going to town

[Chorus]
I almost told you that I loved you
Thank God I didn't 'cause it would have been a lie
I say the damnedest things when you're on top of me
I almost told you that I loved you

I hate to say it but it has to be said
You look so fragile as I fuck with your head
I know it shouldn't but it's getting me on
If sex is the drug then what is the cost?

[Chorus]

I'm not the one that you want
Not the one that you need
My love is like a fucking disease

You can give me your hand
You can make your demands
I'm the hardest mother fucker to please

[Chorus]

(I'm not the one that you want)
I almost told you that I loved you
(I'm not the one that you need)
Thank God I didn't 'cause it would have been a lie
(I'm not the one that you want)
I say the damnedest things when you're on top of me
(The one that you need)
I almost told you that I loved you

    General Commenti'm pretty sure "If sex is the drug, than what is the cost" but, who knows i have bad ears
    It's incredibly catchy and my favorite on Metampohasis so far, next to Change or Die of course.

    General CommentWell, the meaning seems obvious but... you think it's something more that a boy talking to a kind of girlfriend?

    My OpinionThis song is sick, man. At least for Papa Roach. But it's still a great fucking tune! ;)

    General CommentI've almost done this myself before and caught myself. I'm amazed that this song came from Papa Roach of all bands, I thought it was Buck Cherry the first time I heard it.

    General CommentFrom what I heard on the radio the song is about a friend of the bands who is a porn director and was very impressed by a porn star's acting.

    General CommentWWoowww!! This is the dirrtiesst song I've ever heard, and the dirrrrtiesst video as well!!!
    MMMM I Didn't expect this song from Papa Roach, and even less to be a single, but God!! This song is extremely catchy!!! Yeah, it's not a very pleasent meaning being a woman, but what the hell, this is one of the most catchy rock songs ever, I just pretty much laugh about the girl the song is about. haha.

    Song MeaningSo... this one is him pretty much saying that he's willing to pay any price just to get laid. Heh who can blame him? Moving on... MCRockerwayAfi... this is the dirtiest song and video you've ever heard and seen? Listen to rap for the meaning and watch those videos... Trust me, they're worse. Going on to the meaning again, it's pretty much obvious that he's saying he thought he had strong feelings for her, but she like cheated on him is what I'm getting at. They had a ton of sex, and he thought that was enough to show her his love. He's saying it wasn't enough for her so he's getting back at her by pretty much saying it meant nothing. I must say I like how catchy the song is, but I don't like the message. It's pretty much just a rude move which shows that he can stoop down to her level. I love Papa Roach, but not this song. Rock on Papa Roach.
