This is beginning to hurt
This is beginning to get serious
It used to be a game
Now it's a cryin' shame
'Cuz you don't wanna play around no more
Sometimes I push too hard
Sometimes you fall and skin your knee
I never meant to do
All that I've done to you
Please baby say it's not too late
to get you, uh-huh
You know this is breakin' me up
You think that I'm some kind of freak
but if you'd come back to me
then you would surely see
that I'm just foolin' around
to get you, uh-huh
I can't believe
What you've done to me
What I did do them
You've done to me

    My InterpretationA sister song to Tired of Sex, like World Has Turned was to No One Else, this song is about the karmic consequences of his promiscuity attained via stardom. During his sexcapades, he ended up falling for one of the girls after she decided to stop seeing him. Now he wants her back. Nasty come uppance. An asskicker for sure, one of my favorite Weezer songs.

    General Commentthis is definitive weezer. i know Rivers doesn't like it anymore but i think its one of the best songs they've done. i think it's about a guy that is immature and his girlfriend has had enough of his behaviour, and he wants her to stay with him. this song rules!

    General CommentI feel bad that Rivers is so insecure. Like... He doesn't like anything he did on Pinkerton because it didn't do so great commercially? That's sad. Maybe I am over-analyzing though.

    General Commentwatchthefireworks i totally agree with you. I think Rivers should be happy that he did such great songs on Pinkerton, especially this one ... i dont actually think the stuff he does now has as much emotion in it as Pinkerton and the Blue Album had, especially Pinkerton. I think this song is about a guy who likes this girl but she thinks he's playing games when he's actually just being a guy... xoxo rivers

    General CommentWord, sane. Girls have told me that I do this...even though I think I'm just being guy, they think I'm falling in love with them. Most guys don't try to tease, but a lot of girls take it that way. Rivers is right with us on this one.

    General CommentThe deal with pinkerton was that it was an extremely bad time for Rivers, not just the lack of popularity toward the album. Basically he doesnt like to play much off pinkerton because it reminds him of all of his bad memories from that time. The idea of the green album was to write a cd devoid of emotions.
