Basically, the song tries to put across the message that if someone says "No" then they mean NO! Although the subject matter is of a taboo subject, the lyrics are not especially descriptive.

Let It Go
"There was no reason to think that was not a day like any other. Who could foresee this turn of events? This kind of thing happens all the time"
This girl, feeling kinda vulnerable
In need of love, but love of the right kind
Don't want your hands about me, no
I don't wanna hear your plans about me
Just want love, but love of the right kind
If I say no, I mean no
Don't give you right to treat me oh so so-so
If I say you ain't getting your way
You better just let it go
He should know that even though you are right there in front of him - he cannot have you
I let you into my home (What a fool am I?)
You wouldn't leave me alone (what a fool am I?)
I didn't see the sign
I must be blinder than blinder than blind
You got your wife, you got your kid
They didn't figure in what you did, but then
Me and my feelings - neither did I
(Mid. 8) - Spoken
"Women don't lie. They don't play us. Bullshit! You see what I'm saying? Yeah, I know you do. They want us to do that kind of thing.
"Do you not have any control?"
"You're a lying sack of shit. No one will believe you. It's your word against mine"
"Damn girl. Why you gotta be such a bitch?"
"Ok, so we learn to apologise. I'm sorry. I'm sorry baby. I am so sorry."
"I will not apologise for what I need."
"I will not apologise for what I want."
(Repeat Chorus to fade)
You ain't getting nowhere, I ain't giving you jack
You try to give me your best shot and I'll shoot you right back
And you know I will, you know that I will
If I say no, I mean no, if I say no, it means no
"You can trust me, you know you can."
