You Never Loved Me

Album: Mental Illness (2017)


  • Aimee Mann wrote this song about a friend who got engaged and moved across the country to be with that person. Aimee's friend was stood up by her fiancée and left abandoned in a hotel room. Mann told Billboard magazine:

    "They just disappeared on her. It's certainly supposed to be a little bit wry and ironic and not entirely 'Boo hoo for me.' I picture the narrator shaking their head and going, 'Wow. You really stuck it to me. Good for you.'"
