about

Shefita's cover version to the song "You oughta know" written by Alanis Morissette, from her album "Jagged little pill" (1995), made with lots of love and honor, and with no intentions of claiming copyrights!

lyrics

I want you to know, that I am happy for you
I wish nothing but the best for you both
An older version of me, Is she perverted like me?
Would she go down on you in a theater?
Does she speak eloquently, And would she have your baby?
I'm sure she'd make a really excellent mother
'Cause the love that you gave that we made
Wasn't able to make it enough for you
To be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me
You'd hold me until you died
'Til you died, but you're still alive
And I'm here, to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It's not fair, to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know
You seem very well, things look peaceful
I'm not quite as well, I thought you should know
Did you forget about me, Mr. Duplicity?
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It was a slap in the face, How quickly I was replaced
And are you thinking of me when you fuck her?
'Cause the love that you gave that we made…
And I'm here, to remind you…
'Cause the joke that you laid in the bed
That was me and I'm not gonna fade
As soon as you close your eyes, and you know it
And every time I scratch my nails
Down someone else's back I hope you feel it
Well, can you feel it?
And I'm here, to remind you…
