Portions for Foxes Lyrics - Rilo Kiley

Review The Song (35)



There's blood in my mouth 'cause I've been biting my tongue all week
I keep on talkin' trash but I never say anything
And the talkin' leads to touchin'
and the touchin' leads to sex
and then there is no mystery left

And It's bad news
Baby I'm bad news
I'm just bad news, bad news, bad news

I know I'm alone if I'm with or without you
but just bein' around you offers me another form of relief
When the loneliness leads to bad dreams
and the bad dreams lead me to callin' you
and I call you and say "C'MERE!"

And it's bad news
Baby I'm bad news
I'm just bad news, bad news, bad news

sponsored links
And it's bad news
Baby it's bad news
It's just bad news, bad news, bad news

'Cause you're just damage control
for a walking corpse like me - like you

'Cause we'll all be
Portions for foxes
Yeah we'll all be
Portions for foxes

There's a pretty young thing in front of you
and she's real pretty and she's real into you
and then she's sleepin' inside of you
and the talkin' leads to touchin'
then touchin' leads to sex
and then there is no mystery left

And it's bad news
I don't blame you
I do the same thing
I get lonely too

And you're bad news
My friends tell me to leave you
That you're bad news, bad news, bad news

That you're bad news
Baby you're bad news
and you're bad news
Baby you're bad news
and you're bad news
I don't care I like you
and you're bad news
I don't care I like you
I like you

One of the greatest songs ever. | Reviewer: mfrae | 3/7/09

From Jenny Lewis on lead guitar to her absolutely incredible vocals, this is one of the greatest pop/rock songs ever recorded. Rilo Kiley is a truly underrated band who may never record another album. But this one song will should put Jenny into the rock and roll hall of fame someday.



just bit size | Reviewer: Ian L. | 1/2/09

This is a great song. But every time i hear it reminds of what I'm gonna lose someday. Knowing that love doesn't last is one of the most painful things i can think of. Its a constant reminder that the ones you will love the most wont be there for you. Wont be the one you end up with and are bad news.



just bein' around you offers me another form of relief | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/26/08

I want to play it for him, but I think he would laugh at me. Two and a half years of this exact story. This is why I listen to music, to know that I am not alone in all of the crazy things that I do. I have liked him for so long now and all he will ever be is a small comfort between other people that come into my life b/c that is all he wants to be. And for him...I think I am just a toy. Most of the time just being with him makes me feel less alone, but once he is gone I cry to my fiends. He never lies-he tells me that he is bad news and I just want to hold him anyway hoping that some day he will see. I smile to his face-I cry when he leaves, but still I'm not ready to give it up.

If it can happen to Jenny Lewis-then it's not so bad. This is why I love the band. Songs are not simply about loving someone or breaking up. They talk about all of the tricky situations in between.



who can really tell us how to keep the mistery | Reviewer: all | 9/9/08

i love this song
i guess everybody has been in this situation at list once ...
its weird because who can really tell us how to keep the mistery or when we can be just us or open up...this is complicated



BAD bad news | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/23/08

the first time i heard this song i cried because it exactly described the relationship i was currently in, and i was so saddened by the fact that it was happening to me. but then i listened to the song again and i realized that that's just how it is but hey i like him and it's ok. this song is amazing and i think it can speak to many souls.



Portions for Jenny lewis | Reviewer: Addison | 2/10/08

everyone does sex, smokes, drinks and other stuff. You just tend to do it with a person you like, who doesn't like you back. this has been a problem for people since the pre-historic ages. So what if he is her sex-buddy or just her normal crush, we all have sex-buddies and crushes. Jenny Lewis was just the only to admit in something meaningful, more meaningful then

"HEY HEY YOU YOU I DON'T LIKE YOUR GIRLFRIEND, NO WAY NO WAY I THINK YOU NEED A NEW ONE."

She sings like it is, no teen crap about heartbreak and crying after your gone like Hannah Montana and the JoBro's, the talking leads to touching and touching leads to sex and then there is no mystery left pretty much is true and explains\sums life today.



meaning | Reviewer: dina | 1/15/08

it's funny to read some other people's interpretation of the song because i thought it was really straight forward. She has this fuck buddy and she's worried that she's bad for him, but then she realizes that it's ok because he's bad for her also. So really they aren't bad for each other, just in a mutually casual, fun relationship. And maybe they are both kind of messed up, but it doesn't matter, because we all end up the same way in the end (portions for foxes) and life's too short to not enjoy each other.



good song | Reviewer: molly | 1/14/08

I think a lot of us can relate to this song. You truly care about someone who treats you like you are just another thing that happened to them. Your friends think its bad for you to be with them but you dont care because you like them. I love this song.



Join the ride | Reviewer: Mel | 10/11/07

Everybody enjoys a rollercoaster ride .. This is an amazing song .. Love is grand .. Pain makes art .. After a while once the pain goes away .. you find yourself missing it .. amazing !!



and the touchin' leads to sex | Reviewer: kelsey | 10/12/07

this song is amazing.

i can't stop listening to it.

i am in a current relationship that pretty much is identical to the song, its like they wrote it about me but maybe that is the reason i like it so much, maybe becuase i am living it.

this song, it is brillant.
