"Samantha" as written by Linda Perry, Michael Beinhorn, Micko Larkin, Courtney Love, Billy Corgan and Pete Thorn....
Samantha, you swore
You never turned that trick before
Keep waiting for a war
You'll never win
You'll lose again

Watch her wrap her legs around this world
Can't take that gutter from the girl

Samantha
You burned me out
Samantha
It's over now
Samantha

Your war
Was a lost cause before I came
Keep praying
Pray for
The pretty things you won't get back

Watch her wrap her legs around this world
Stab the gutter right out of that girl
That girl

Through villages of ether
My crucifixion comes
Will you sing my hallelujah?
Will you tell me when it's done?

Look in my eyes
There's nothing there
Goodbye
I wanted you out of my whole life
Goodnight
And don't try to move

People like you fuck people like me
In order to avoid agony
People like you fuck people like me
In order to avoid suffering

People like you fuck people like me
Fuck people like you
Fuck people like me
Fuck people like you
Fuck people like me
Fuck people like you
Fuck people like me

(Fuck people like you)
Leave your money by the bed
(Fuck people like me)
(Fuck people like you)
In the gutter where you live
(Fuck people like me)
And I throw it all away
And I throw it in your face
And if you were on fire
I would just throw kerosene
Cause I love so much I hate
And I hate what you have seen in me

Samantha

So you think that you could save him
And we know that someone died
Oh, an unkindness of ravens
And we know that Mary lied
And through villages of ether
Oh, my crucifixion comes
Will you sing my hallelujah?
Will you tell me when it's done?

People like you fuck people like me
In order to avoid agony
People like you fuck people like me
In order to avoid suffering

People like you fuck people like me
Fuck people like you
Fuck people like me
Fuck people like you
Fuck people like me
Fuck people like you
Fuck people like me
Fuck people like you

    General CommentAbout a girl that loved her Brother and Mother, a Mother that was hooked on Heroin and Cocaine that had 4 kids. The first one to be giving away, ask of the father the mother would say a mistake a sin i will pay for this one was the icon i gave away...
    The second not long after the first A lost soul with a family and a dad of fame in one hand and a Dad of mystery in the other??? Hooked on heroin young in life with cocaine, speed and pills with this he dies before his time. He lived a good life a fight till the end for love and understanding from a good friend. Along comes the third a girl so blond with daddy on coke and mommy spoon in hand of heroin. Born, of foul creation Born, of sour milk Coke and filth Samantha with kids of her own most of time she is in jail and working the escort papers to pay for speed. With a hunger for money Watch her wrap her legs around this world.
    A girl sad over her brother dying while she was in Jail So you think that you could save him
    And we know that someone died Oh, an unkindness of ravens And we know that Mary lied the mother of the 4 kids so many lies... So dare she speak out Samantha you swore You never turned that trick before
    Keep waiting for a war
    You'll never win
    You'll lose again
    So dare she speak out And if you were on fire I would just throw kerosene Cause I love so much I hate
    And I hate what you have seen in me
    Lets not for get the 4th a boy in jail always in jail not much to speak of...

    General Commentin a uk interview, love said samantha was a prostitute, hence "Leave your money by the bed
    In the gutter where you live" but in reality, it could have been love insulting this girl she detests further by calling her a whore on national tv. then again, im sure in courntey's fall she would have been hanging around people like that in the streets during a drug addiciton and would have been fucked over a lot.

    General CommentIn another interview Courtney stated that she is not sure who "Samantha" is, and that is may very well be her and how she sees herself sometimes. However, when Love writes music she stated that she sometimes personifies the protagonist of the song - she further stated that it was similar to Stevie Nicks' Rhiannon.
