Ooh baby, got a hold on me, I can't deny it
You locked the door and you swallowed the key
And i... and I kept quiet
Yeah baby, got a hold on me, I didn't want to be alone
I stayed with you `cause I really believed
That I couldn't make it on my own

But I'm getting a little bit smarter
Gettin' tired of playin' the martyr
And I know what you're all about
I want out!
I want out!

Ooh baby, your lovin' told on me, I couldn't smile anymore
My friends all told me, baby can't you see?
But I wasn't seeing clear before

Now I'm getting a little bit smarter
Gettin' tired of playin' the martyr
And I know what you're all about
I want out!
I want out!

Ooh baby, got a hold on me, I didn't want to be alone
I stayed with you `cause I really believed
That I couldn't make it
I want out!

Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
