  • It hurts [x17]

    Is this what you want?
    'Cause everybody acts without a clue
    Every little kiss and grin you gave
    Was just a little bullshit I saw through

    The alcohol is scented with your breath
    You're always all done up to just be used
    I'm waiting for excuses that deceive
    I'll meet you in the back to see them through

    How did I let her inside?
    We're dripping of sweat, I'm feeling alright
    Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
    Your best friend is not your girlfriend

    How did I let her inside?
    We're dripping of sweat, I'm feeling alright
    Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
    Your best friend is not your girlfriend

    It hurts [x17]

    Are you out of your mind?
    You dug yourself into a liar's hole
    You made a little spark to live inside
    It's now a fucking fire out of control
    And when the morning comes you'll act surprised
    And when the word gets out it will get old
    And every day you'll try to live your life
    And every little scandal will unfold

    How did I let her inside?
    We're dripping of sweat, I'm feeling alright
    Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
    Your best friend is not your girlfriend

    Sherrie, do you want it?
    Sherrie, I want it too
    Sherrie, do you want it?
    Sherrie, I want it too

    How did I let her inside?
    We're dripping of sweat, I'm feeling alright
    Her lips were the last thing touched tonight
    Your best friend is not your girlfriend

    (It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts)
    (It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts) Your best friend is not your girlfriend
    (It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts)
    (It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts) Your best friend is not your girlfriend
    (It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts)
    (It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts) Your best friend is not your girlfriend
    (It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts)
    (It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts) Your best friend is not your girlfriend Writer/s: THOMAS DELONGE

  • Louis from Glendale, AzHats off to Angels & Airwaves for making great 80's inspired music. Really, people will say this is the best band ever, really, there is no best. But, these guys are really good. But, I personally think they should start doing more guitar riffs, and use more chords then the ones they use for guitars currently.

    In I-Empire, they actually pulled that off. They stripped a lot of the piano/synth stuff and put more guitar into it, but there is still only one string being used at certain moments, same chords, etc. But, the lyrics, singing, drums and bass make up for the guitar and the newly-broken-down synth/piano mixes. That's what makes these guys good.
  • Ben from Gosford, AustraliaThis is my favorite song on the album. Sounds so much like an 80's Cure song, especially at the start.
  • Randa from Melbourne, AustraliaThis Song is awsome. All of AVA's songs are awsome!! soo i recommend all songs. They rock. Best band ever!@
  • J-dog from Madison, WiVery good song, ANGELS & AIRWAVES ROCK!!!
