When you were lonely, you needed a man
Someone to lean on, well I understand
It's only natural
But why did it have to be me?
Nights can be empty, nights can be cold
So you were looking for someone to hold
That's only natural
But why did it have to be me?


I was so lonesome, I was blue
I couldn't help it, it had to be you and I
Always thought you knew the reason why
I only wanted a little love affair
Now I can see you are beginning to care
But baby, believe me
It's better to forget me


Men are toys in the game that you play
When you get tired, you throw them away
That's only natural
But why did it have to be me?
Falling in love with a woman like you
Happens so quickly, there's nothing to do
It's only natural
But why did it have to be me?


I was so lonesome, I was blue
I couldn't help it, it had to be you and I
Always thought you knew the reason why
I only wanted a little love affair
Now I can see you are beginning to care
But baby, believe me
It's better to forget me

    The song was written about Gert Van Der Graaf's love affair with the blond ABBA singer Agnetha Fältskog. Van Der Graaf was obsessed with Fältskog. As an adult, he started to make trips to Sweden and found the area where Fältskog lived. In 1997, he moved from Holland to Sweden, determined to get in contact with Fältskog. He managed to buy a small house near Fältskog's estate and also found a job in the area. Soon, he began to approach Fältskog during her walks in her neighborhood. He soon began a sexual relationship with Fältskog and was invited to visit her home, and eventually to co-habit with her.
    Van Der Graaf claims that Fältskog seduced him and that he "did not mean to stalk her" but claimed he was still in love with her and "couldn't let go."
