Songfacts®:

  • Clarkson explained on her record label's website that this is actually about two different people in the verse and the chorus. She said: "That's the first time I ever did that. The lyrics are about something very true to me. You know how you want someone, but can't have them because they're off-limits? In the chorus, I sing that, even if you had 'em, you know you'd screw it up. You always want what you can't have. It's a funny, ironic song."
