[Verse 1] Dear Matthew, I like you a lot I realize you're in a relationship with someone right now And I respect that I would like you to know that if you're ever single in the future And you want to come visit me in California I would be open to spending time with you And finding out how old you were When you wrote your first song [Verse 2] Dear Jonathan, I liked you too much I used to be attracted to boys who would lie to me And think solely about themselves And you were plenty self-destructive for my taste at the time I used to say the more tragic the better The truth is whenever I think of the early 90's Your face comes up with a vengeance Like it was yesterday [Verse 3] Dear Terrance, I love you muchly You've been nothing but open hearted and Emotionally available and supportive And nurturing and consummately there for me I kept drawing you in And pushing you away I remember how beautiful it was to Fall asleep on your couch and cry in front of you for the first time You were the best platform from which to jump beyond myself What was wrong with me?
With no chorus – just the 5 verses – it was pretty unusual and failed to hit the Top-40.
While it didn’t find commercial success, the song did appeal to Alanis' core fans, who seemed to appreciate the intimacy of the song and the harmonica solo.
[Verse 4] Dear Marcus, you rocked my world You had a charismatic way about you with the women And you got me seriously thinking about spirituality And you wouldn't let me get away with kicking my own ass But I could never really feel relaxed and looked out for around you though And that stopped us from going any further than we did And it's kind of too bad because we could've had much more fun [Verse 5] Dear Lou, we learned so much I realize we won't be able to talk for some time And I understand that as I do you The long distance thing was the hardest and we did as well as we could We were together during a very tumultuous time in our lives I will always have your back and be curious about you About your career, your whereabouts In this song, Alanis addresses five different guys in an attempt to gain closure in her relationships with them.
They are all real people, and after writing the song, Alanis wasn’t sure she wanted to broadcast her message to these guys in a song that anyone could hear – something she did on her previous album with the song “You Oughta Know.” Her solution was to contact the guys and ask permission.
