Everybody gets a little ______ sometimes
What “My Number” is about
Analysis of lyrics:

“Tegan talked about this song in an interview. This song was about her best guy friend who was in love with her. She loved him also just not in the same way. It was her best friend and she really didn’t want to lose him but she was really interested in one of his friends that was a girl. So for a really long time she kept swing back and forth between making him happy and making her happy “if I saved you from drowning promise me you’ll never go away, promise me you’ll always stay”. I also believe that towards the end he was getting desparate possibly even mentioning not being able to live without her “I’m gonna win the endless war over who kills the last koala bearand who in death will love him more and I”. He grabs me by the hand drags me to the shore and says maybe you don’t love me but you’ll grow to love me even more” once again his desparation. What I get from this song is that she really loved her best friend and didn’t want to lose him. At the same time she was fighting a battle with herself possibly thinking that she could make it work as long as he “never went away”. But as the story goes she said she lost him as a friend.”
