I am alone but adored
By a hundred thousand more
Then I said when you were the last (high)
And I have known love
Like a whore
From at least ten thousand more
Then I swore when you were the last

When you were the last high
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh-igh

You were awake
And I should've stayed
But wondered
I was only out for a day
Out for a day
It was Chicago for a moment and then
It was Paris and London for a few days
But I am alone but adored
By a hundred thousand more
Then I swore when you were the last

When you were the last high
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh

When you were the last high
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh

I was the first to have spoken
And I said just about
All of the things you shouldn't say
So maybe you loved me but now
Maybe you don't
And maybe you'll call me
Maybe you won't (oh)

So I am alone but adored
By a hundred thousand more
Then I said when you were the last (high)
And I have known love
Like a whore
From at least ten thousand more
Then I swore when you were the last -

When you were the last high
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh

And you were the last high
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh-igh
Igh-igh-igh

    General Commentthis song seems pretty straight forward. Paraphrase: I could have had any one else but i wanted you. Then I fucked it up somehow. I could still have anyone but I am alone, because I still want you.

    General CommentYou guys kinda missed it… you’re breaking down his lyrics incorrectly.
    You see:
    I am alone but adored
    By at hundred thousand more
    Then I swore when you were the last….

    What you should see is:
    I am alone
    But adored by a hundred thousand more than I swore when you were the last.

    Or even more accurately:
    I am alone. But I’m adored by a hundred thousand more than when I swore you were the last one who adored me.

    This is an ex who he can’t forget. He’s moved on, like we all do… have relationships and are loved (emotionally) and loved like whores (sexually)… but the problem is she was the last ‘high.’ She was the last peak of his happiness.

    Yeah, I feel this song hardcore… I’m sure others of you do too. Damn good song.

    General CommentMaybe courtney is commenting on being a famous musician and still feeling alone. He has plenty of fans who adore him and he can have sex whenever he wants but its as meaningless as prostitution (I have known love like a whore).
    And he has only one particular person in mind, his last high.

    General CommentThis song is one of the only songs I'm really really listening to and I just love it so much. My dad pointed out that Courtney tends to sing in a hoarsey whisper voice.
    I dunno, this song is just amazing.
