And I know Sarah McLachlan's "Possession" does, because she wrote it that way on purpose.
I'm willing to give unreliable narrators a lot of benefit of the doubt, and people in art do not exist to be role models.

I'm pretty sure this song does not know how fucked up it is. I'm just saying. And I'm pretty sure the object of the song needs a restraining order.
...It is pretty, though.
