Mouzourakis' ability to write lyrics is incredible for someone of such a young age. She sprinkles the simple concept with lyrics that show understanding of relationships far beyond her years. One of the best lyrics is "you had me tied like a worn out string, and you knew my heart was a delicate thing." The recognition of this boy's motives and the way Mouzourakis puts this into words perfectly describes the situation.
The bridge, although, is the part of the song that sets it apart. Mouzourakis sings,
"Mama told me just to stay away, and I didn't listen.
Mama told me just to stay away, and I should've listened.
So why was I surprised, to hear you never loved me all this time?"
This lyric, although simple, captures the feeling of this song so well. When you fall for a bad boy, you realize you've been stupid, and hear the warnings everyone has been telling you over and over and over again in your head. But there's still a part of you, that still sees this boy as an angel. This lyric captures that feeling in a way that few artists could do.
