"Got Me Wrong" as written by and Jerry Cantrell....
Yeah, it goes away
All of this and more of nothing in my life
No color clay
Individuality not safe
As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure you run from something strong
I can't let go

Threadbare tapestry unwinding slow
Feel a tortured brain
Show your belly like you want me to
As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure you run from something strong
I haven't felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

That don't last forever
Something's gotta turn out right
You sugar taste
Sweetness doesn't often touch my face
Stay if you please
You may not be here when I leave

As of now I bet you got me wrong
So unsure we reach for something strong
I haven't felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love
Strong, I haven't felt like this in so long
Wrong, in a sense too far gone from love

That don't last forever
Something's gotta turn out right

    General CommentJerry wrote this song and I read a long time ago how he had a long time girlfriend he he loved back home. However he could never be faithful to her due to his "needs" and touring...and what not. I think this song is about how his girlfriend had enough with him and his behavior. She breaks up with him because she cant take it anymore. He feels bad and he thinks that she "got him wrong". Who knows? Maybe he didnt do anything with another woman and she got him wrong or maybe he did. However, he does feel heartbroken because he truly loves this girl but he cant help himself. Thats just my interpretion... we will never know the true story. Awesome song, love AIC. Like if you cant tell already with my s/n lol.
