The Fratellis – For The Girl lyrics

La la la la la la........

Well she said I know but I just can't tell
Everything you've just been saying
Lucy was there aswell in the dark
When kids in the band were playing

No-one can hear a word I tell
What the girl was singing
See she mustav been 16 or 18
I'm just past caring

She was into the Stones when
I was into the Roses
She was breaking my bones when
I was busting their noses
She would tell me a secret
I would lose it the next day
Young love pleases you easy
Makes you sick in a bad way

And all the while the girls sang
La la la la and she sang
Kickings for my sweetheart
Bruises that I just don't miss

And she said "I can't love you anymore than this!"

La la la la la la la...............
La la la la la la la...............

Aww she said she said no no no no
Then again yes why don't you kill me
I said wow you messed up right there
Sweetheart you know that don't thrill me
Said I wouldav been in there if only I'd had been a little bit nicer
I was dead by Sunday half dead scared just trying to please her

She getting the pills when
I was into her best friend
She was chasing her thrills
And living out in the West and
She was pretty in braces
I lived under her window
She said take me to London
Tell me something I don't know

And all the while the girls sang
La la la la she sang
Kickings for my sweetheart
Bruises that I just don't miss

And she said "I can't love you anymore than this!"

La la la la la.....
La la la la la.....
La la la la la.....

She was into the Stones when
I was into the Roses
She was breaking my bones when
I was busting their noses
She would tell me a secret
I would lose it the next day
Young love pleases you easy
Makes you sick in a bad way
And all the while the girls sang
La la la la she sang
Kickings for my sweetheart
Bruises that I just don't miss

And she said I don't like you
You can't stand me
I can't love you anymore than this

    Ok so. How about the idea that the girl is a bit younger than him, a singer, crazy and intoxicated with the idea of being in a relationship("young love pleases you easy, makes you sick in a bad way"). Almost as if she was one step behind through out (stones and roses, "she would tell me a secret i would loose it the next day"). "kickings for my sweetheart,bruises that i just dont miss" I'm pritty sure shes putting out to him and he can't resist and in turn leading her on. However at the end the girl figures out that hes not looking for a relationship with her and gives up. Ya I'm bored, so what.
