We've never been into honesty
So promise me you'll let me know
When you're lying.
She wants to be an eagle
And when she's high she can fly
No matter what she was trying.

She'll be the perfect woman,
Then she'll change suddenly;
You wanna cry from the feeling.
She's got a heart of gold but
Every now and again she'll turn to grey.
And you know she gives me

An olive then an arrow in the back.
She leaves me breathless
Then she kicks me while I'm down.
She leaves me hoping
My love won't show.
'Cause I know she'll give me
An olive and an arrow.

She doesn't like to worry
But she's afraid of everything
That's going on around her.
I'm just another photo
That made it's way on her page;
Somehow I stayed, but it won't be long.

An olive then an arrow in the back.
She leaves me breathless
Then she'll kick me while I'm down.
She leaves me hoping
That my love won't show.
'Cause I know she'll give me
An olive and an arrow.

You leave me hoping, and praying,
That my love won't show.
'Cause I know you'll give me
An olive and an arrow.

    She sounds mean (the girl) cause like he sais (sings)
    And you know she gives me

    An olive then an arrow in the back.
    She leaves me breathless
    Then she kicks me while I'm down.

    He's saying that the girl is nice and loving (olive, sign of peace) but then changes her attitude completely to something evil (arrow, sign of war). All he hopes is that his feelings go away so he won't get hurt again.
