She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough
I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in
And I don't know if I've ever been really loved
By a hand that's touched me, well I feel like something gonna give
And I'm a little bit angry, well

This ain't over, no not here, not while I still need you
Around
You don't owe me, we might change
Yeah we just might feel good
(chorus)
I wanna push you around, well I will, well I will
I wanna push you down, well I will, well I will
I wanna take you for granted(2x)
Yeah I will, I will
Well I will

She said I don't know why you ever would lie to me
Like I'm a little untrusting when I think that the truth is
Gonna hurt ya
And I don't why you couldn't just stay with me
You couldn't stand to be near me
When my face don't seem to want to shine 'cause it's a little bit dirty well

Don't just stand there, say nice things to me
I've been cheated I've been wronged, and you
You don't know me, I can't change
I won't do anything at all
(chorus)
Oh but don't bowl me over
Just wait a minute well it kinda fell apart, things get so
Crazy, crazy
Don't rush this baby(2x)
(chorus)

    It's about a woman trying to overcome an abusive past. The first line says "she said. " abusive love is confusing and painful, and recovering from it is no less so. She'll lose many relationships struggling with her worth, what it means to be loved, and attempting to understand what both she and her lover deserve to gain a healthy relationship--if she can ever overcome the past.

    It's about a guy who's being cheated and hurt by his own love even he had done everything for her. And he's not even sure if the love that this person showed her was right or just pretending and showing love that wasn't true at all..

    I feel this is a about a person that has been hurt by ppl so many times that he has just had it... But still holds onto a little glimmer of light because his love is so deep

    A person who has searched for a relationship to keep and someone who will love them back as much as they love them... But seems to find only the ones who let them down by lying, cheating, not treating them well while they keep giving the other person their everything only to be left hurt and angry and lost. I have been there so many times.
