"Are You Still Mad?" as written by and Alanis Morissette....
Are you still mad I kicked you out of bed?
Are you still mad I gave you ultimatums?
Are you still mad I compared you to all
My forty year old male friends?
Are you still mad I shared our problems
With everybody?

Are you still mad I had an emotional affair?
Are you still mad I tried to mold you into
Who I wanted you to be?
Are you still mad I didn't trust your intentions?
Of course you are
Of course you are

Are you still mad that I flirted wildly?
Are you still mad I had a tendency to mother you?
Are you still mad that I had one foot out of the door?
Are you still mad that we slept together even after
We had ended it?
Of course you are
Of course you are

Are you still mad I wore the pants most of the time?
Are you still mad that I seemed to focus
Only on your potential?
Are you still mad that I threw in the towel?
Are you still mad that I gave up long before you did?
Of course you are
Of course you are

    General CommentMaybe I'm waaaay off base here, but here's how I see the meaning of this song...
    Alanis is basically laying out all of the ways in which she faulted this guy, reminds him of all the ways she made him mad in their relationship. Asks him... "are you still mad?"... and replys "of course you are".

    And the best part of the song, in my mind... is at the end when she's saying that inspite of ALL of this, of all her faults, and of all the ways she's sabotoged this relationship... she was STILL the one who gave up on it first. "are you still mad I gave up long before you did?"... of course you are.

    Basically, she's saying... I was long from perfect in our relationship, and did things to make you very mad, which your probably still mad about, and yet... you held on, and I gave up.

    Its much deeper than just "are you mad?".

    I heart Alanis.

    General Commenti like the reference to 'an emotional affair?' faithfulness is not just about sexual activity.

    General Commentyou can have an emotional affair. if you're committed to someone emotionally and you stop relying on them for emotional support because of someone else that you met...that has the traits of an affair.

    General CommentI don't think that having friends would mean that you're not faithful to your boyfriend or your girlfriend!! But I think what she calls emotional affair is just when you kinda fall in love with someone, when you have fantasies (?) involving this person, even if there is no love story between you and this person, then it's like being unfaithful, somehow!
