Leak History

  • July 25th, 2015 - The studio version of the song is leaked in full.

Background

On March 25th, 2014, Melanie posted a tweet stating that she wants to "put the names of each song [on her album] as emojis". The tweet included "you ❤ I", which referred to this song.[1] After the song had been scrapped, the tweet was deleted. Melanie also mentioned the song on Facebook in 2014.[2]

Theme

When the lyrics are read from bottom to top, it forms a story, presumably about Marilyn Monroe, due to the fact that there is a reversed audio clip of Marilyn in the beginning. This story tells of Marilyn meeting a guy, whom she quickly begins dating. They slowly become more and more attracted to each other and move in with each other. They decide to get married, but before they could, she cheated on him. She then blames him for not putting in enough effort, singing, "That's what happens happens when you don't try".

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The end, I move back in
Before you knew it, I cheated on him
Oh yeah, that's what happens when you don't try 
You know I always thought about him
Even when the other boys sneak in
But infidelity would never even cross my mind

[Verse 2]
Wonderful, so wonderful
But, boy, don't get too comfortable
'Cause what we have's untouchable, I, I, I
I stood deaf till I stood dead
Untied a knot in my wedding dress
He got down on one knee and he said

[Chorus]
You love I
You love I
You love I
Do I? Do I? Do I? Do I?

[Verse 3]
Oh oh, I move back out
He invited me into his fancy house
It's been so long we might as well try
Wonderful, so wonderful
You turned my heart into a puppet show
If you like me, please, let me know, I, I, I
One day, the very first date
He walked on over and he asked my name
He could be the one to say

[Chorus]
You love I
You love I
You love I
Do I? Do I? Do I? Do I?

[Refrain]
I love you
I love you
I love you
I do, I do, I do, I do

I do, I do, I do, I do
Do I? Do I?
You love I
I do, I do, I do, I do
Do I? Do I?

Trivia

  • The song includes a backmasked message. If you reverse and slow down the first set of vocals before the actual song, the audio clip is of Marilyn Monroe saying "Uh, do I feel happy in life?".
    • This is one of two known songs by Melanie that includes a backmasked message in it, the only other one being Teddy Bear.
  • Melanie likely scrapped the song late in development, because there is a fully rendered studio version of the song.
  • This song was illegally sampled in the song Love by Garrett.
    • The song used to be up on YouTube, however, it was taken down due to a copyright claim by Warner Music Group. However, it still remains available on streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music.
  • As with many other unreleased songs, most uploads of this song on YouTube, SoundCloud, or other similar content-sharing websites will be immediately taken down.
