Video got him where i want him now lyrics

Okay so basically, I’m going to break it down for you because this song makes perfect sense. AMAZING song by the way. One of the best off the album Riot! Let’s start:

I’m in the business of misery Let’s take it from the top

*She’s dealing with the usual teenage scene. She’s involved in a bit of drama and knows there’s a chance for a heart break, but she’s determined. Take it from the top is meaning she is going to tell her side of the story.

She’s got a body like an hourglass That’s tickin’ like a clock

*This might indicate the other girl, who has a perfect figure and who is beautiful. Ticking like a clock is indicating that she has been waiting for this guy that she likes, and she is confident she will get him since she is so beautiful and all that snobby bull shit.

It’s a matter of time before we all run out When I thought he was mine She caught him by the mouth

*This other girl [use Hayley for the example], likes the guy too and has been waiting for him. If either of them don’t get to him, then he is going to move on and they are both going to be screwed. When Hayley tried to get to him, the other girl snags him before she can.

I waited eight long months She finally set him free

*Hayley waited patiently for 8 months, and the other girl got to him before she did, and so Hayley thinks this whole thing isn’t fair.

I told him I couldn’t lie He was the only one for me

*Hayley has strong feelings for him. Hayley probably thinks the other girl is just using him, and has other guys in mind too and she’s cheated on this guy they both like while Hayley knows herself that she likes that one particular guy.

Two weeks and we had caught on fire She’s got it out for me But I wear the biggest smile

*The indicated 2 weeks could be when Hayley and the guy hit it off, and the other girl is pissed about it and tried to get back at Hayley, but Hayley plays it off and wears the biggest smile, knowing she has the guy, and the other girl doesn’t.

Whoa, I never meant to brag But I got him where I want him now

*Hayley doesn’t want to brag about getting the guy now, and she’s finally got him after the long run.

Whoa, it was never my intention to brag To steal it all away from you now

*Hayley ends up bragging about it and the other girl is furious because Hayley stealed him away from her, but the guy should’ve been Hayley’s in the first place.

But God, does it feel so good Cause I got him where I want him now

*Hayley feels so much better now that she has him and the other girl doesn’t.

And if you could then you know you would Cause God, it just feels so It just feels so good

*The “and if you could then you know you would” indicates that if the other girl was in Hayley’s position, she would act the same way.

Second chances, they don’t ever matter People never change

*Hayley it seems, as if she’s talking to the guy after the other girl cheated on him, and she’s telling him the the other girl shouldn’t get a chance because she’s never going to change.

Once a whore, you’re nothing more I’m sorry, that’ll never change

*Plain and simple..Once you’re whore, you are nothing more than that. You’re just classified as one and you’ll never change from a whore to a nice innocent girl.

And about forgiveness We’re both supposed to have exchanged I’m sorry, honey, but I passed that up Now look this way

*She’s indicating that the other girl is trying to apologize not only to the guy but to her because the other girl feels so low now that she finally hasn’t got something she wanted and Hayley is not going to put up with it and she wants the other girl to look at what Hayley and the guy have that she doesn’t.

Well, there’s a million other girls who do it just like you Looking as innocent as possible To get to who they want and what they like

*She’s saying that there’s tons of other girls who act fake and are snaggers like the other girl is. They try to act innocent like they’re not trying to steal someone else’s guy but they do it and they try to get just what then want and like.

It’s easy if you do it right Well, I refuse, I refuse, I refuse

*She’s saying it’s easy for the girls to get the guys because they just have to sweet talk their way into it, but Hayley refuses for the other girl to do that to the guy she likes.

Whoa, I never meant to brag But I got him where I want him now Whoa, it was never my intention to brag To steal it all away from you now But God, does it feel so good Cause I got him where I want him right now And if you could then you know you would Cause God, it just feels so It just feels so good

^^look at the previous chorus

I watched his wildest dreams come true And not one of them involving you

*Hayley is watching his wildest dreams come true and none of them involve the other girl.

Just watch my wildest dreams come true Not one of them involving…

*Hayley is rubbing it in the other girl’s face that the guy is having his wildest dreams come true by Hayley and they aren’t involving the other girl, once again.

Whoa, I never meant to brag But I got him where I want him now

^^already explained somewhere above

Whoa, I never meant to brag But I got him where I want him now Whoa, it was never my intention to brag To steal it all away from you now But God, does it feel so good Cause I got him where I want him now And if you could then you know you would Cause God, it just feels so It just feels so good

^^ALL indicated above somewhere too

Anyways, I enjoyed breaking this song down for all of you; All of this is my own opinion. If you think differently, then so be it :]
