He fell on his sword not two years ago today
And if you haven't noticed
I've been waiting for you to take me away

If nothing warrants nothing
I'll gladly give you away
For every goddamn moment
There's something of mine that gets in the way
It's all in the movies I've seen

It's all in the movies I've seen

Lawrence of Arabia, he failed eleven plus
I never went to college
I'm sure it's obvious
I know it's off the subject
And now I'm starting to feel uncomfortable
Because when I talk about you
it's just like the movies I've seen

There I go
I fucked it up for you, I know
I should let you go
That's my reasoning
But there's no reasonin
With a melodramatic fool like me
Aw, fuck it, here's your love song
That you've been asking for
It's the best I could do without
Saying I love --

    General Commenti think this is about a girl who is falling for this guy but she's not the type of girl who believes in love. but all of these things that happen and she feels for his are the same things she sees in romance movies. she's actually afraid of saying "i love you" or even confessing her love. so she just says this is her love song because she still is confused about everything that's happening/

    General CommentI think that maybe she realizes love is like a sword, if your not careful, you could get cut. Seems she doesn't really wanna take her chances, playing with love even though it might be something the movies she has seen seem to tell her otherwise.
    Notice she never says you at the last I love, probably jennys way of sayin she'll never be "owned" or tamed.
