Overview

The song was demoed several times by the band in September of 2002 at the S.I.R. rehearsal studios. It was then recorded during the band's second attempt at making Make Believe, at Grandmaster Recorders in Los Angeles, CA. The sessions lasted from July 22 to October 22, 2004. It was one of 12 songs that Rivers Cuomo asked to band to only concentrate on, as well as part of the early Unchained Melody working album.

Lyrics

What the hell did I do wrong?
Why'd you change your happy song?
Yesterday you wanted me

Now you're backing out the door
You don't love me anymore
It's as plain as it can be

And I was about to write you down
As just another love I've known
But you just might have been
The sweetest one of all

And I am bamboozled as can be
Wondering how this came to be
How did I win then lose
The sweetest one of all?

Don't tell me you want to try
With that sparkle in your eye
You don't have a heart in you

Why not break it off for good?
You know I would if I could
But this is all that I can do

And I was about to write you down
As just another love I've known
But you just might have been
The sweetest one of all

And I am bamboozled as can be
Wondering how this came to be
How did I win then lose
The sweetest one of all?

How did I lose?
How did I lose?
How did I lose?
How did I lose?

And I was about to write you down
As just another love I've known
But you just might have been
The sweetest one of all

And I am bamboozled as can be
Wondering how this came to be
How did I win then lose
The sweetest one of all?

Alternate Bridge

And I am the loser
And I am the loser
And I am the loser
This time
