Wait a minute I don't want you to know
It's the only way that I might grow
A secret's safe behind a pretty smile
And it's mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

What's with all the late night liquored phone calls?
I don't think your love likes me at all
A secret's safe behind a pretty smile
But it's mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

What, what might you do
To find out why I can't love you?
I can't love you!

Who said it was cool to be asking me these questions?
Who, what and when, where and why? I'm making my head spin
When was it an option to put your lips upon my lips?
And how did this happen?
And why are you laughing?
And how do I get back together again?
Ohhhh, ohhh, ohhhh, ohhh, ohhh!

What, what might you do?
What, what might you do
To find out why
To find out why
I can't love you?
I can't love you!

    I don't think she was helping someone cheat, I think it means she was raped by a man with a girlfriend ("when was it an option to put your lips upon my lips? " means she didn't think it was okay when the guy cheated on his girlfriend). The situation probably started out with the guy pursuing her ("what's with all the late night liquor calls") but she'd always turn him down, though she was scared because of how hard he was pursuing her ("what, what might you do to find out why i can't love you? "), but one day he got the chance to rape her. All the questions ("and how did this happen? And why are you laughing? And how do i get back together again? ") and the reaction of keeping it a secret are in line with what a lot of people do after having been raped.
