Fall Out Boy – Irresistible lyrics

[Verse 1]
Coming in unannounced, drag my nails on the tile
I just follow your scent, you can just follow my smile
All of your flaws are aligned with this mood of mine
Cutting me to the bone, nothing left to leave behind

You ought to keep me concealed just like I was a weapon
I didn't come for a fight but I will fight til the end

This one might be a battle, might not turn out okay
You know you look so Seattle but you feel so L.A
.

[Chorus]
And I love the way you hurt me
It's irresistible, yeah
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby

[Verse 2]
I'm gonna get you to burst just like you were a bubble
Frame me up on your wall just to keep me out of trouble
Like a moth getting trapped in the light by fixation
Truly free, love it baby, I'm talking no inflation
Too many war wounds and not enough wars
Too few rounds in the ring and not enough settled scores
Too many sharks, not enough blood in the waves
You know I give my love a f-f-four letter name

[Chorus]
And I love the way you hurt me
It's irresistible, yeah
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby

[Verse 3]
You're second hand smoke, second hand smoke
I breathe you in, but honey I don't know what you're doing to me
Mon chérie but the truth catches up with us eventually
Try to say live, live and let live
But I'm no good, good at lip service
Except when they're yours, mi amore
I'm coming for you and I'm making war

[Chorus]
And I still love the way you hurt me
It's irresistible, yeah
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby
I love the way, I love the way
I love the way you hurt me, baby

    Some poetic techniques used in this song are:
    Simile - "You ought to keep me concealed just like I was a weapon". This simile helps the reader/listener to realise that he is a bad/dangerous person in this situation.
    Imagery - "I'm gonna get you to burst just like you were a bubble". This line puts a representation of a picture in the reader/listeners mind of what will happen.
    Repetition - "another way, another way, another way you hurt me, baby". The singer has chosen to repeat this not only to make it catchy, but also to emphasise she hurt him repeatedly in many different ways. She continues to hurt him over and over.
    Rhyme Scheme - The rhyme scheme in the first stanza is as follows: A-A-B-B-C-C-D-D.
    Alliteration - "Try to say live, live and let live" This line has 4 words starting with the letter "l".
    Assonance - Assonance is a line which has words with the same vowel sound in them. An example in this song is the line "I didn't come for a fight but I will fight til the end". The words "I" and "fight" are both repeated twice giving the "I" sound four times. The words "didn't", "will" and "til" all have the same sound too.

    Tone is the attitude a poet (or singer) takes toward their subject.
    An attitude the singer takes in this song is the feeling of helplessness. The song being called "Irresistable" shows that the singer is literally unable to resist the person who is hurting them. Another example of helplessness is in the line "Like a moth getting trapped in the light by fixation". This reference is to the way, just like a moth to the light, he has no choice and is drawn to her.
    Another attitude that the singer has in this song is the feeling of depression. An example of this is in the line, "cut me to the bone, nothing left to leave behind". This line shows that he has had everything taken away from him and she doesn't care.

    Mood: is the feeling a poem/singer creates for the reader/listener. I feel empathy in this song, empathy is sharing the same feeling as the singer. The line is a sample of empathy "another way you hurt me, baby."
    A other mood is empowering because it directed at by doing so they use the word "you".
