She Got to You Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
If I had a penny
For every time I caught you
Undressing me with your eyes
I'd be a rich one and then
I could prove all my senses
Were real all along
You wanted me too
Verse 2
Though now you laugh
And call me a fool
I know you wanted me too
Before she got to you
Verse 3
If I could remember
All the things you used to say
When we were left alone
I'd have a book of sonnets
So inspired
All the muses would cringe
At your denial
At how you wanted me too
Verse 4
Though now you laugh
And call me a fool
I know you wanted me too
Before she got to you
Verse 5
Before she got to you
I would say
That we were something special
To behold
But now it's over, all over
Verse 6
before she came barging through
We were prime
To make the kind of love
As scarce as four leaf clover
Verse 7
Now, I'm a bit confused
'Cause what I felt
I thought was true
Did she barge in
And steal your heart away?
Or did you know
From the first day
I was just someone to play?
If so, damn that's cold
Verse 8
Before she got to you
I would say
That we were something special
To behold
But now it's over, all over
Verse 9
Before she came barging through
We were prime
To make the kind of love
As scarce as four leaf clover
Verse 10
If I could understand
What you have found in her
More than you
Could have had with me
I'd finally understand a mind
As twisted as yours
Must be for you to go
Just when you wanted me too
Verse 11
Though now you laugh
And call me a fool
I know you wanted me too
What kind of spell
Has she put on you?
I know you wanted me too
Before she got to you
Before she got to you
