I wrote her off for the tenth time today
I practiced all the things I would say
But she came over
I lost my nerve
I took her back and made her desserve

Now I know I'm being used
That's okay man cause I like the abuse
And I know she's playing with me
That's okay cause I got no self esteem

We make plans to go out at night
I wait till 2 then I turn out the light
This rejection's got me so low
If she keeps it up I just might tell her so

Chorus
When she's saying that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she's saying that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend
Well I guess I should speak up for myself
But I really think it's better this way
The more you suffer
The more it shows you really care
Right? Yeah

Now I'll relate, this little bit
That happens more than I'd like to admit
Late at night she knocks on my door
Drunk again and looking to score

Now I know I should say no
But that's kind of hard when she's ready to go
I may be dumb
But I'm not a dweeb
I'm just a sucker with no self esteem

Chorus

    It's simply about the guy being completely weak to this slut that he know is terrible for him, yet his lack of self-esteem keeps him forever wrapped around her finger.
