I did it for the wrong reasons, but I don't care.
I did it for the wrong reasons, but I don't care.
When I told a good friend, I never knew that some obscure sources would know the truth.
Why did you hold it in so long?
You were so cunning to prove me wrong.
But now I know that you know

I did it for the wrong reasons, but I don't care. (x2)

As the months built up, I thought you forgot
Till you called my house and bluntly asked
Why did I do the things I did?
I told you once I never lied
And now your plan worked
I feel so guilty of myself
Even though I knew that you knew all along.
So now it's clear that I did it for the wrong reasons
And now I care
I did it for the wrong reasons
And now I care
And now I care
And now I care

    General Commentthis song is so good. i cant believe no one commented on it yet. i dont know if he did something bad to his girlfriend or he told someone that he liked a girl, i dont know but i like how at the beginning he didnt care and after realizing the whole situation he he says.."'and now i care..." i think it is a sad true story

    General CommentI realize people can read into songs and put their life experinces it it. That's what I'm going to do here. Anyway, to me it's like some one 'hooked up' for the summer. They didn't do it because they especially liked the person, just liked what they were getting from the person. 'I did it for the wrong reasons' and if I had the chance, I'd do it again.

    General CommentI think its about guy sleeping with his best friends girl friend. Not necessarily his girlfriend, but at least a girl he was interested in or dating. If you look at the first verse it is clear that this is what the song is about. In the first few lines he is saying that he slept with his friends girl and that he really didn't feel remorseful about it, and that he also told a mutual friend but he really didn't expect it to get back to him but his friend is cunning for finding out. At the end of the song he is remorseful and sad that he wreck or damaged his friendship.
