Hands Clean (Acoustic)

Lyrics

If it weren't for your maturity none of this would have happened
If you weren't so wise beyond your years I would've been able to control myself
If it weren't for my attention you wouldn't have been successful and
If it weren't for me you would never have amounted to very much

If it weren't for you I wouldn't have known how much god loves me. Forgot the song but know I was in the rain walking when the ephinany hit me. Thank you sister!!! ???
Pmserer I do believe you said exactly the tuth
The chorus reminds me of myself and my boyfriend. He's Christian and I'm Atheist. Technically, this could hey very messy. But we choose to overlook this supposed crime and pretend I'm Catholic in front of his parents.
A pervert's theme song........ . u n b e l i e v a b l e . . . . w a i t until he's over 21!!! MY GOD!!!
Sweet girl, so nice and not mean. Good girl.

And anyone who thinks she is the perpetrator in this song needs to listen again.

If I remember correctly , the gentleman in question is alleged to be the actor who played Joey on the TV series Full House
I find the line "I might want to marry you one day if you watch that weight and keep that firm body" disturbing.. . . i ' v e never actually listened closely to the lyrics sadly this probably happens more than we knowI love the acoustic version.

Actually, Alanis has come out and said that this song is about her. She was 14 and dating a 30 some year old - he was old enough that is was molestation (and probably rape). Very dysfunctiona l and manipulative . When you listen to the lyrics it makes more sense knowing that.

Love, Love, LOVE this version.

i think its about somebody older falling for somebody much younger because of their maturity. And it's wrong because they are so much younger, but neither of them can help it.
I heard it was about an adult man on the set of "you can't do that on television" from when she was a teenager.
I interpret this as a song about child abuse.

No, she's singing about someone that was very very very much younger than her.

A married man... or woman?

This is my absolute favorite song. Was she singing about an affair that she had with a married man at work?
