What's it been over a decade?
It still smarts like it was four minutes ago
We only influenced each other totally
We only bruised each other even more so

    "You affect me like you are my dad" is probably the saddest line Alanis has ever sang. :-( [2]

    Is so sad acknowledge that you understand the situation of the lyrics, because she goes through in your life.

    Alanis has such a way with words, and the melody of poetry. This song is so deeply affecting.

    Oh! Now I feel a bit misunderstood. I never thought she was being sexual when talking about the "like you are my dad" line. I think it's the saddest thing she's ever written because I know how a father can affect us like no other person in the world. So to hear her singing that line... It says so much. It's so powerful.

    Such an amazing AMAZING tune... to hear some people thought there was talk of incest on here really bothers me. Alanis can be controversial, but I don't think she would ever have written something like F you like you were my dad. Just ICK!

    "What are you my blood? You touch me like you were my blood" That's some powerful stuff...

    I have frequently misheard "you affect me like you are my dad" as "you f*ck me like you are my dad"... o_O
