"Love Bites" as written by and Elizabeth Mae/bassett Hale....
Don’t listen what your girlfriend says
She reads those magazines
That say you failed the test
You don’t have what she needs
I slither like a viper
And get you by the neck
I know a thousand ways to help you forget about her

That bitch can eat her heart out!
Love bites, but so do I, so do I.
Love bites, but so do I, so do I.
Love bites!

My lips are pale and vicious.
You’re foaming at the mouth.
You’ve suffered in the darkness.
I’ll suck the pain right out.
So come and taste the reason
I’m nothing like the rest.
I kiss you in a way you’ll never forget about me.

That chick can eat her heart out!
Love bites, but so do I, so do I.
Love bites, but so do I, so do I, so do I!

It checks you in and kicks you down,
And chews you up and spits you out.
It messes with your sanity by twisting all your thoughts around.
They say it’s blind they say it waits but every time it seals your fate.
And now it’s got you by the balls it won’t let go until you fall.
I was down and out, got up I said “Hey love I’ve had enough!”
I’ve felt pleasure without pain.
My soul you’ll never tame!

Love bites, but so do I.
Love bites, but so do I, so do I
Love bites, but so do I, so do I, so do I!
Love bites, but so do I, so do I.
Love bites!
Love bites!

    General CommentThough I like the song and think it's catchy, it does make the singer seem pretty pathetic, IMO. Like she's desperate to get some other girl's leftovers.

    Song MeaningThis is all taken from their official website...

    “love bites (so do i)” is a storming rocker that illustrates hale’s individuality, sense of humor, and willingness to represent young women in today’s fast-paced society.

    “i was talking to this little girl over twitter who was going through her first breakup, and she was asking me for advice,” recalls hale, who regularly interacts with her fans online. “she typed ‘love bites,’ and i replied, ‘well, so do you, darling. You can still bite back. ’ it was meant to be an empowering song for people when love goes down the tubes, and i think it’s a very realistic way of looking at relationships. Nobody talks about all the crap you have to do to keep something alive or just deal with your boyfriend or girlfriend. They always talk about falling in love or having your heart broken. So this is a way of saying, yes, everything can end, but it’s rejuvenating to stand up and go, ‘this sucks right now, but it’s not going to take me down with it. ’”

    My InterpretationI think its supposed to be like she's liked this guy, and she's wanted to be with him. And now that this girl has hurt him so bad, she's basically saying "fuck you" showing her that she's hot and he's all hers now. That she's stupid for leaving him and look what she could have had with him but now its hers. I like it (: lol

    My InterpretationI Think This Song Is About A Girl Telling Her Friend That She Hates His Girl Friend And That She's No Good For Him. She's Trying To Show Him That He's Better Off With Her {The Speaker}. Feel Free To Disagree.

    General CommentThis song just pisses me off because it's soooooo good and has the best scream-singing and use of instruments the band's ever done and it makes me sweat it's so fast, but the lyrics are about her trying to steal another woman's man, like what the hell, the song sounds really empowering and sexy but the lyrics could've been so good if they just weren't about infidelity. Heartbreaking. I think they could've done a lot better. If I ever become a millionaire I'm gonna convince them to make an alternate version of this song that is about a woman seducing a SINGLE dude and how powerless he is to her charms, rather than about how much of a bitch the other woman is. This would honestly be one of my favorite songs if it weren't for the non-chorus lyrics, istg.

    My OpinionFor the people who are saying it's about stealing a boyfriend, I think they need to listen closer; The song starts out with the guy getting dumped by his girlfriend, apparently because of something dumb like a cosmo quiz, and she's both giving advice on how to handle the bad feelings (essentially saying "love bites, but so do I" or "fight back") and also expressing an attraction to the guy. Rebound might not be the classiest thing ever, but hey, gotta love a girl who knows what she wants, right?
