I remember when we broke up, the first time
Saying this is it, I've had enough, 'cause like
We haven't seen each other in a month
When you, said you, needed space, what
?
Then you come around again and say
Baby, I miss you and I swear I'm gonna change
Trust me, remember how that lasted for a day
I say, I hate you, we break up, you call me, I love you

Oooh we called it off again last night
But Oooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you
We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

Like ever...

I'm really gonna miss you picking fights
And me, falling for it screaming that I'm right
And you, will hide away and find your piece of mind, with some indie record
That's much cooler than mine

Oooh you called me up again tonight
But oooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you
We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

I used to think, that we, were forever ever
And I used to say never say never

(Talks)

Huh, he calls me up and he's like, I still love you
And I'm like, I'm just, I mean this is exhausting, you know like
We are never getting back together, like ever

No!

We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

We, oooh, oooh, not back together, we
Oh, getting back together

You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

    This song can relate to me becasue i once had a boyfriend for like 5 months (it was my first one and i am young) and then he broke up with me twice... Once on april fools day and another a few days before that. He did some bad things, like; like another person while he was dating me and he was also liking another girl while we were together. After like a week after he broke up with me i was like, "ya, no, we are never ever getting back together. " and every time i hear this i think many thoughts. One of them is, "i can relate"

    She has an on again off again boyfriend who fights with her, breaks up, and then calls her to apologize and it was over and over and she gets tired of it and tells the boy that she is breaking up with him and he keeps begging and begging for forgiveness but she does not care because he hurt her and yelled at her too many times and so he keeps begging and she keeps refusing and neither give up on getting what they want.

    To me, this song is about on-again, off-again boyfriends. They fought, broke up briefly, and then the boy calls his girlfriend to tell her he didn't mean it. The same thing happens again and again and again until the girlfriend gets tired of the vicious circle and when her boyfriend calls her to ask for forgiveness, she refuses... And they never get back together.

    A couple had a quarrel and as a result, they ended up having a break up but the guy is not over her and have not moved on and therefore wants the girl back but the girl is not willing to have another second chance with the guy that's how we are never ever getting back together comes in :)
