Just Wondering...

Recommended Posts

I was listening to I'm not okay, as I do pretty mch ever day and was paying closer attention to the lyrics than I normally do.

I was wondering if anyone on this forum could tell me if the lines "the photographs your boyfriend took" has any connection to Gerard mentioning in an interview that a girl he had really liked took sleazy photos with her boyfriend.

heres the Gerard quote:

“When I was writing it, I was remembering how hard it was to be a 16-year-old in high school. I always wanted to be an artist, so I was this loner kid who just got drunk all the time. I only had one real friend. There was a girl I really liked, and she ended up taking really sleazy photographs with her boyfriend, and that really crushed me, I was just swimming in this pit of despair, jealousy and alcoholism.”

so, any opinions...

I believe that line was a late edition to the song, and the original version that was circulating before the release of Revenge had something else in it's place....

Yeah, in the

(both in that video and the demo) it went: "And never mind the drugs you took."

In the finished version though, I do think Gerard is referencing to that girl.
