"Twisted" as written by Alex Greggs, Bradley Daymond Ralph and Mischke J. Butler....
I know everything you're doin baby
and I know every game you're runnin
You must think that I am blind
Cause it's right before my eyes
So don't get it twisted baby

Don't say that I got it wrong
Cause there's just no way out for you this time
And don't say that our love is strong
Cause we both know you want to crawl
Back under the rock you came from
And hide away

I'm telling you got it twisted baby
Cause you're not the one who I'll be missin
I'm not broken up this time
Got another one in mind
So don't get it twisted baby

See I'm not just gonna sit and take this lady
And I'm not gonna let you play me
So don't even try and fight
Cause you're gonna only lose tonight
So don't get it twisted baby

It won't be too long
Till you're wonderin'
How you got yourself left behind
It won't be too long
Till I'm watching you crawl
Back under the rock you came from
To hide away

You know it's time for me to rearrange
What was between you and I
So don't think that you can just
Play your lies away
I've thrown your love away

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a non-formal relationship, a kind of open relationship, in which the girl was getting involved too much and therefore begins to demand more attention and real love from her partner. But the guy knows that she wants to get only the advantages of a engagement, and she doesn't want to abandon the benefits of her "single" status. Even though she pretends to be in love, actually she lies to him and even (I suppose because of the tone of reproach in the first strophe) is cheating on him with one or more guys. Moreover, she assumes her partner isn't clever enough to realize about this double-life she is carrying, but in fact he does know and only stands in a sort of "cat and mouse" game to see how far she reaches. This is implied in the first two strophes, as well as her custom to run away from problems or engagement ("Back under the rock you came from and hide away").


    "I know everything you're doin baby
    and I know every game you're runnin
    You must think that I am blind
    Cause it's right before my eyes
    So don't get it twisted baby

    Don't say that I got it wrong
    Cause there's just no way out for you this time
    And don't say that our love is strong
    Cause we both know you want to crawl
    Back under the rock you came from
    And hide away..."


    Later, the guy emphasizes his ego meanwhile despises her by saying:


    "I'm telling you got it twisted baby
    Cause you're not the one who I'll be missin
    I'm not broken up this time
    Got another one in mind
    So don't get it twisted baby"


    It's like: "You are wrong if you think that I will suffer for you and your lies, I'm stronger than you believe and even I'm already thinking in someone else to fool around with, so let your self-confidence and don't misunderstand this thing we have". Though, for the tone in which he expresses, it's clear he is in love with her, only he can't accept it because of the treacherous behavior of the girl.

    In the last paragraphs, he continues with the avoidant- personality issue and also he refuses her very probably when she tries to seduce him, and he dare to say that he'll never yield to her, no matter what she does. He guarantees her that he will forget about her and, eventually, she will run away like always. So he gives the last word and say goodbye to her forever.


    "See I'm not just gonna sit and take this lady
    And I'm not gonna let you play me
    So don't even try and fight
    Cause you're gonna only lose tonight
    So don't get it twisted baby

    It won't be too long
    Till you're wonderin'
    How you got yourself left behind
    It won't be too long
    Till I'm watching you crawl
    Back under the rock you came from
    To hide away

    You know it's time for me to rearrange
    What was between you and I
    So don't think that you can just
    Play your lies away
    I've thrown your love away"
