Nirvana – About A Girl lyrics

I need an easy friend. I do, with an ear to lend.
I do think you fit this shoe. I do, won't you have a clue.

[Chorus:] I'll take advantage while. You hang me out to dry.
But I can't see you every night, free.

I'm standing in your line. I do hope you have the time.
I do pick a number two. I do keep a date with you.

[Chorus:]...

(Solo)...

I need an easy friend. I do, with an ear to lend.
I do think you fit this shoe. I do, won't you have a clue.

I'll take advantage while. You hang me out to dry.
But I can't see you every night. No I can't see you every night, free. I do. (x4)

    It is about tracy marander. The name does come from nirvana's original drummer chad channing conversation with kurt. When asked what the song was about kurt, said "it's about a girl" and the name stuck. It was not on bleach because they did not want to alienate the "grunge" fans. So, it was written well before he was with courney love.
    Heart shaped box is about courtney love and the title comes from a heart shaped box courtney kept her personal things at home. So that may be what you are thinking about in regards to a song about love.
    Also, kurt cobain did not start using heroin until the last years of his life. Remember nirvana was not really in the spot light very long. They achieved fame from about 92' until his death in 94'. Amazing what someone can accomplish and throw away in such a short time.

    You can never tell exactly what was meant here. Kurt's lyrics are sometimes random.
    I believe that this song could be about a hooker. Maybe, lol. Only, he has fallen in love with her. Yet she can't see the love because she doesn't know what love is. So, he just keeps going back to her, but not free.
    Also, the song could be about a man who is living off his girl. He doesn't have a job or a life. She yells at him, and he listens. But, she won't listen to him when he makes excuses. In return, the self pity of being yeld at forces him to be unable to even look at her. Then she kicks him out and he can't do anything to keep her.
