See the lonely girl out on the weekend
Trying to make it pay
She can't relate to joy, she tries to speak and
Can't begin to say
The boy who fooled me again, he loves me all up
But I'm so down today
See the lonely girl in Hollywood on the weekend
Trying to make it pay

And here it is

It's been a hard day, a harder night
The rock star's girlfriend, she lost the fight
Well it's alright baby, I'm nobody's mother
But I don't want that last cigarette to be over

You fooled me again, fooled me again
With your honest, honest, honest eyes
Again, fooled me again
With your dirty mouth full of honest lies
Again, oh when'd you fool me again, oh yeah
You're so honest, full of honest eyes

It's been two days since he left home
She dried her eyes, picked up her microphone
She sang it's alright baby, I'm nobody's mother
Just don't want this last cigarette to be over

You fooled me again, fooled me again
With your honest, honest, honest eyes
Again, fooled me again
With your dirty mouth full of honest lies
Again, oh when'd you fool me again, oh yeah
You're so honest, full of honest eyes

You fooled me again, fooled me again
With your honest, honest, honest eyes
Again, fooled me again
With your dirty mouth full of those rough-start New York lies
Again, oh when'd you fool me again, oh yeah
You're so full of it, at least you're honest eyes

Again, honest, honest, you're so freaking honest
You're so full of it, at least you're honest eyes

    General Comment[This is all my, and my friend's interpretation, which I believe is accurate]. This song is about her and her boyfriend having troubles. The "rockstar's girlfriend" is referring to Lady GaGa, and that she "lost the fight". The "it's alright baby, I'm nobody's mother" means that she understands that she isn't that important, but she wants to enjoy the last moments, which falls along into the next line "but i dont wan't this last cigarette to be over". This means that she doesn't want their last moments to end, and the reasons she chose cigarette was because a cigarette burns out, and ends. Also, a cigarette represents something negative that she keeps going back to, such as her boyfriend. "Fooled me again, honest eyes", is that although her boyfriend was unfaithful, she still goes back to him because he can fool her, and he tells her lies, that seem completley honest. Also the "you're so full of shhhhhh, honest eyes", is supposed to be a sarcastic remark, meaning "you're so full of shit", but instead she says "honest eyes".

    General Commenti think this is about a girl who works the corners, if you know what i mean. kinda sad.



    corrected parts:
    "she can't relate to joy, ohh,
    she tries to speak and..
    can't begin to say"

    "it's been a hard day, harder nights"

    "she lost THE fight"

    "it's been two days since he left home"

    General CommentI feel this song is written about troubles she had with an ex-boyfriend of hers. She's spoken about having dated a heavy metal drummer whilst living in New York (thus her being "the rockstar's girlfriend"). She's writing of the fights and ultimate ending of this relationship, and then of the struggles she went through when she first moved to LA (possibly not long after the break up?) and was trying to get signed and make a living through her music.

    That's just my interpretation though :)

    I love the "well it's alright baby, I'm nobody's mother.." line. It's her way of saying yeah I get it, I'm not THAT important to you, but just let me enjoy this last moment we have together.

    General Commentwell i personally think that this song is about a woman who is in a relationship with a man who is cheating on her and HAS cheated on her before. she is saying he fooled her agian with his honest eyes becuase he was telling her that he was being faithful and that he loved er but i reality he was going behind her back and cheating on her again. also she says his mouth was full of dirty lies.

    General CommentI love the line "It's alright baby, I'm nobody's mother" because I think it's about how she doesn't feel important. Like, she's saying this guy doesn't have any reason to stay with her- it's not like they have a kid together. And the cigarette is her ignorance. She knows deep down that this guy is lying to her but she wants to believe him with his honest eyes. The cigarette represents how she feels when she believes it. She doesn't want the cigarette to be over because she doesn't want to admit to herself that this guys lying to her.
