The nightmares the bad dreams have become reality
At least inside my mind yeah
But no words that you say could ever make me wanna change
Forgive me not when it comes to this crime
I met her before you she wore the sweetest perfume
Her scent reminds me of our first date
I still taste our last kiss
Her name still falls from my lips
She burns just like an old flame
Hey hey I shouldn't speak her name
But she's always on my mind
Hey hey I wouldn't make you change
So don't expect me to try every fault every flaw
Your picture's still on my wall
There's not a thing about you that I would change
Say goodnight say goodbye I'll think of you when I'm high
I know someday you'll be doing the same
Hey hey I shouldn't speak her name but she's always on my mind
Hey hey I wouldn't make you change so don't expect me to try
Hey hey I shouldn't speak her name but she's always on my mind
Hey hey I wouldn't make you change
So don't expect me to try
Hey hey hey hey hey hey don't expect me to try

    General Commentwhat does this song have to do with sex??? it's a guy apologizing to his girlfriend because he still has feelings for an old girlfriend.

    General Comment"its about smoking a lot of pot" (a direct quote from Will of Fenix TX) and his girlfriend not wanting him to, and expecting him to stop for her and him not wanting to... they refer to pot as 'her' so its not another girlfrend but pot. and thats why 'she wore the sweetest perfume' coz the smell of pot is good.

    General Commentyeah. i think katie w is his girlfriend trying to make him stop smoking weed, and he's pissed because he doesn't want to change despite not wanting to lose his girlfriend either.

    General Commentoh crap the whole idea that this song is about weed has ruined my image of it now. i always thought it was like, a guy who still has feelings for a girl -katie w, but hes got a new girlfriend now and hes apologising for still having feelings.

    General Commenti guess if you read the lyrics, it is about weed, but i liked it better when it was about his ex

    General CommentWell, it can be interpreted in both ways. I mean, even if the song is about weed, it still works as a song about a girl and if you like it that way... I'm sure the band knew they had a double meaning there.

    General CommentI doesn't matter to me what they had in mind writing the song. I say if it means something different to you, go with it. The band must have known that would happen or else they would have called it "The Weed Song".
