So you want to be my friend,
But my best friends don't bring out their claws
So you want to play pretend
But my best friends don't bring out their claws

And I really wanted you,
And I was hoping that you wanted me too
I really wanted you but it's all over now

Oooh you've got somebody else
It's tearing me a (it's tearing me apart)
And you're an animal baby,
An animal, baby

Oooh you've got somebody else
it's tearing me a (it's tearing me apart)
And you're an animal baby,
An animal, baby

So you want to make amends
But, my old friend, it seems to me you lost
Your here, you leave to me your bed
But my best friends don't take off their clothes

And I really wanted you,
And I was hoping that you wanted me too
I really wanted you but it's all over now

Oooh you've got somebody else
it's tearing me a (it's tearing me apart)
And you're an animal baby,
An animal, baby

Oooh you've found somebody else
it's tearing me a (it's tearing me apart)
And you're an animal baby,
An animal, baby

Animal eyes
They tell your story
Animal eyes
Oh how they tore me
Animal eyes
I know you're sorry
Animal eyes,
Don't come looking for me

Oooh you've got somebody else
it's tearing me a (it's tearing me apart)
And you're an animal baby,
An animal, baby

Oooh you've got somebody else
it's tearing me a (it's tearing me apart)
And you're an animal baby,
An animal, baby

    General CommentI think it's about someone the writer (Alex?) met who really wants to be friends with benefits. At first, she just wants to be coy and play hard to get, but then realizes later that she really does want him/her. But by then, that person is in a relationship, hence the lyric "You found somebody else/And it's tearing me apart". Then she decides to let it all go ("Dont come looking for me), realizing that they were just manipulative.
