"Thanks That Was Fun" as written by and Steven/robertson Page....
I'm learning, I'm yearning
I'm burning all your stuff
But that's not enough
I'm thinking that I'm aching
Mistaking lust for love

Thanks that was fun
Don't forget, no regrets
Except maybe one

Did I scare you when I dared you?
I stared you in the eye and told you good-bye
You mocked me, it shocked me
When you walked me to the bus

Thanks that was fun
Don't forget, no regrets
Except maybe one
Made a deal, not to feel
God, that's dumb

Everybody knows the deal fell through
I was hoping I could just blame you
When was it that I became so soft?

This sentimentality doesn't look good on me
I thought that you would be begging to be with me
I'm the one on my knees, blubbering
Please, let me stay

Deflated and jaded
I hate it when you call
Which isn't at all
I've spoken, though broken
Here's a token of my love

Thanks that was fun
Don't forget, no regrets
Except maybe one
Made a deal, not to feel
God, that was dumb
Don't forget, no regrets
Except maybe one
Made a deal, not to feel
Thanks that was fun

    General CommentThis song caused me to fall back in love with BNL. This song is very relatable. Most one night stands become more than that - - atleast for one of the individuals involved.

    General Commentfor me it's about those relationships that we all have now and then. Those ones that start out with the agreement "no strings attached" and almost never work out that way. We've all been there, nobody can say they haven't fallen in love with someone when they said they wouldn't, and worse part is they kept their part of the bargain. Disposable, replacable, that's what you've become at that point. And it hurts just as much as being dumped in a real relationship.

    General Commentmy friend chrissy got me hooked on this song. she's a big BNL fan and we went to one of their concerts... very interesting...

    this song is about a couple after a break up. the guy wants the girl and so they have a no-strings-attached one night stand thing and he thinks that this will make her want him back ("I thought that you would be beggin' to be with me") but it turns out she's over him and he just loves her more.

    yay for BNL!

    General CommentOne of the best break up songs ever. The lyrics are great, and the melody is hot! This is about continously going back for more pain, when you have clearly been dumped. The best line IMHO is "I hate it when you call, which isn't all.. I've spoken, though broken--here's a token of my love!"

    General CommentThis song was rumored to be a song from BNL to the fans, as fans were worried that they were breaking up after this album.

    General CommentTo me it was always about going to dump someone, but before you get to it, they dump you first. That's the way I see it.
