(Five six seven fifty)
You fucked it up
You should've quit
Till circumstances
Had changed a bit

You fucked it up
You jumped the gun
I swore you off but
You climbed back on

And when you said
Of course you know
Could I be blamed
If I'd wished it so
I don't think so

You fucked it up
Or was it you
'Cause when you said it
I said it too
What of it

And all that stuff
I knew before
Just turned into
Please love me more [Repeats]

    General CommentOne of Aimee's mini-masterpieces. To move from an angry "you fucked it up" to a pleading "please love me more" in the course of a single song is heartbreakingly beautiful.

    Song ComparisonThe guitar riff between the verses sounds just like the intro to "Up The Junction" by Squeeze. I think it had to be deliberate!
