Hands Clean

Lyrics

If it weren't for your maturity none of this would have happened
If you weren't so wise beyond your years I would've been able to control myself
If it weren't for my attention you wouldn't have been successful and
If it weren't for me you would never have amounted to very much

It's not a fantasy song lol. It's about her relationship with a grown man when she was a young teen (13-14).
luv the musical tune
Bit disturbing, but I like it. Follow me I follow back.
Pretty much a fantasy song. You bad girl Alannis. Your hands are clean

Am I the only one that sees this as a song about a female teacher having a relationship with one of her students?

love this song!! :)
@ Ineed2chill. Thanks for the info there. It's funny because when I was listening to this I thought of a fictional character from a book I'm writing who was in a simmilar situation. Glad to have a little confirmation of the authenticity of my character's prespective actually.

This song is about the same man many of her songs are about (her song "This Grudge" goes into that) - he was an older man in the music industry who had a sexual relationship with Alanis starting when she was 14 (You Oughta Know is about when he left her for an older woman). The verses are the things he said to her, the chorus is from her perspective. She has never, AFAIK, admitted the identity of this man.

This song is about the man's perspective. Alanis Morissette has always been known for her ironic music, and she's singing this from the man's perspective, as one who has a fling with a female co-worker, it would seem, and then he demands, as many giggolo's do, for silence and discretion on the woman's part. It's not a bad song, though it's the first time I've heard it.
or maybe she was the under 18 kid who had a fling with a "grown up" back in the day?
Heidi, I think this song is about her having an affair with a taken man. Love this song though!

haha omg i just realized what this song is really about... she is having a relationship with a kid under 18!!! wow... crazy what you realize when you actually read the lyrics.
I'm willing to bet some of these lyrics are direct quotes from the guy in question. Probably pulled out of her diary.
I like the songs where Alanis personalizes the story with names and references of a relationship . She allows herself and her life to be personal when she does this. Hands Clean is one of those songs that she invites you into the last relationship that didn't work out but it's still left on her heart. Thank you Alanis for sharing and relating.
