    General CommentThe Gary Jules Lucky not the Radiohead one...a little different subject matter.

    Lyrics and song are short but that's what make it great.

    There's another word after her - maybe love.

    Obvious interpretation to obvious lyrics. Dude is doomed and knows it (even if it's a mental curse).

    Girl is probably in love with him and it's kinda like that song Baby Let me Follow You Down.

    Do yourself a favor - he's saying stay away from me let me go out how I want to or have to (given it's Jules perhaps alcoholism a recurring theme for him).

    General CommentI'm not sure if my earlier interpretation was correct.

    Except I will say drugs are involved bad. Gary is a good songwriter.
