I used to know her
I used to talk about her
Waiting for the day that she would listen
I used to know her
I used to stick up for her
Something in her smile was so bitchin'

I used to sing, I used to sing...

I used to know her
Used to know all about her
I used to need her
There was something about her
I used to torch her
It's the best way around her
I used to know her
Now it just doesn't matter, oh yeah
Oh yeah...

I used to fuck him
I used to simplify him
Something in his walk was like Jim Morrison
I used to touch him
I used to justify him
Lying to my face with my permission

I used to sing, I used to sing...

I used to fuck him
Used to fucking love him
I used to need him
Now I read all about him
I used to touch him
Now I could never kiss him
I used to love him
Now I don't even miss him, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah...

I used to know her...
I used to terrify her
I used to terrify her
I used to terrify her
I used to terrify her
I used to terrify her

I used to sing
We used to sing

I used to know her
I used to know all about her
I used to need her
There was something about her
I used to torch her
It's the best way around her
I used to know her
Now she just doesn't matter, oh yeah
She just doesn't matter... oh yeah
She just doesn't matter... oh yeah
She just doesn't matter... oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Yeah, yeah

    General Commenthas anyone else assumed the 'her' is Nina, and the 'him' Dave - or is that just too obvious?

    General CommentIt does seem like it's about Dave and Nina. It can work for any similiar situation though, where you were getting along fine with someone until they betrayed you, or you realized how they weren't worth your time and then it's like you don't feel anything for them at all and don't even care cos' your better off without them in your life.

    General CommentI really like this song but the lyrics are a little embarrassing sometimes. Like the 'I used to sing' bit. I don't know, I think they're a bit silly but maybe that's just me. Anyway, this is a really good angry song. Pretty straight forward meaning and, like most of you, I just assumed it was about Nina Gordon and Dave Grohl. Does anyone know what actually happened with them?

    General CommentIn a live version I have of this song at Fowlers in 2003 Louise says:
    "Who asked for Nina earlier? Who was that?
    It's cool I love Nina, I miss Nina. But Nina left my band.
    So, this song is about her."
