    "Someone last night told me this song is mean, but I just think it's true."

    Great song, but the quality of this stream is horrible. This is not a live recording, it's just a ridiculously compressed file

    I think the "him" is interchangeable with "her." Don't think Finn meant this as a one sided issue of girls making boys like them. I think we all know many instances of guys making girls like them and/or hiding behind them in their relationships.

    guys, the concept of this album is "boys and girls and america have such a sad time together". it's not blaming girls, it's just saying it's sad that people have such unfulfilling and addictive/codependent relationships.

    I made some lines from this song my facebook status, and my boyfriends cousin got mad tight (she didn't know it was from a song) and started all this drama with his family. but its okay, because theres always other boys, and I can make them like me

    PEP1TA: uh... just take your interpretation of it and think of the absolute reverse of that.
