New Meaning to Old Song Lyrics

In light of accusations made by Mackenzie Phillips about her father "Papa John" Phillips, the lyrics to the song "I Saw Here Again" seem to have a new meaning...

I saw her again last night,
And you know that I shouldn't
Just string her along; it's just not right
If I could I wouldn't.
But what can I do; I'm lonely too.
And it makes me feel so good to know
She'll never leave me.

I'm in way over my head;
Now she thinks that I love her (yeah, yeah)
Because that's what I said
Though I never think of her.
(No, no, never think of her)

But what can I do? I'm lonely too.
And it makes me feel so good to know
(And it makes me feel so good to know...)
She'll never leave me.

Every time I see that girl,
You know I wanna lay down and die.
But I really need that girl
Though I'm living a lie;
(Though I'm living a lie...)
It makes me wanna cry

I saw her again last night,
And you know that I shouldn't
Just string her along; it's just not right.
If I couldn't then I wouldn't,
But what can I do, I'm lonely too.
And it makes me feel so good to know
She'll never leave me.
(to know...know)

But what can I do? I'm lonely too.
Yeah, and it makes me feel so good to know
She'll never leave me.

Every time I see that girl,
You know I wanna lay down and die.
But I really need that girl
Though I'm living a lie
(Though I'm living a lie...)
It makes me wanna cry.

I saw her...
I saw her again last night.
And you know that I shouldn't (no, no)
Just string her along; it's just not right.
If I couldn't, I wouldn't;
I'm in way over my head (you say...)
Now she thinks that I love her (yeah, yeah)
Because that's what I said...

Actually, from what I understand, the song is really about an affair that band member Denny Doherty had with Papa John Phillips then wife, Michelle.
