(Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)

I don't know if I can yell any louder
How many times have I kicked you outta here?
Or said something insulting?
(Da da da da da)
I can be so mean when I wanna be
I am capable of really anything
I can cut you into pieces
But my heart is... broken

(Da da da da da)
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
I always say how I don't need you
But it's always gonna come right back to this
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)

How did I become so obnoxious?
What is it with you that makes me act like this?
I've never been this nasty
(Da da da da da)
Can't you tell that this is all just a contest?
The one that wins will be the one that hits the hardest
But baby I don't mean it
I mean it, I promise

(Da da da da da)
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
(Don't leave me)
I always say how I don't need you
But it's always gonna come right back to this
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)

I forgot to say out loud how beautiful you really are to me
I can't be without, you're my perfect little punching bag
And I need you, I'm sorry.
(Da da da da da)

(Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
Please, please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)

Baby, please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
(No, don't leave me)
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
(I always say) I always say how I don't need you
But it's always gonna come right back to this
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
Please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
I always say how I don't need you
But it's always gonna come right back to this

Please, please don't leave me (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da da)
Please, please don't leave me

    I think this is a flipped around story of spousal abuse. Although domestic violence can cut both ways, I think here Pink is playing the role of a man who, despite his violent, hateful nature, insists he needs the woman, loves her, etc. He says one thing in the lyrics 'please don't leave me' but another with his actions. Here, the man in the video finally seems to resort to self-defense. I expected to see him being arrested at the end, as if he wasn't the victim all along, but the fact Pink is still moving at the video's end suggests to me there will be a 'part two' to this story in the future.

    i acualy dedicate this song to me and my brother.. growing up untill now we were heaps close.. he turned 17, and started dating my bestfriend at the time.. everything was well untill i realized i was acualy being replaced.. soon enough she had my seat in his car, he wore her neklace instead of mine, and to make it worse, she rubbed it all in my face.. a year later of them still dating, she tells everyone how she knows my family better than i do and that my brother hates me and blah blah blah.. i hate her.. anyways, me and my brother fight all the time now.. its funny how you can miss someone so much who you see everyday.. i dont want him to leave me, even thou hes not acualy goin anywher.. the part that goes" cant you tell this is all just a contest" i acualy mean that for me and his girlfriend.. the one that wins will be the one who hits the hardest, meaning either one of us doing something to the other is goin to upset him badly in the end.
    its been two years now.. my brother and i barely talk.. im out to kick his girlfriends ass.. and he knows it.. and somehow, i think he wants me to.. i think he might acualy miss me to =)

    as much as you think you hate someone dont think thats just the end. she says in the song "I always say how i dont need you but its always come right back to this" meaning that as much as she says she hates him or hes not in her needs he always ends right back up in there. she loves him no matter what. and she doesnt realize it until the fight is done and over. she loves him but in the song it makes her look like she has emotional problems. abuse really can take it on both sides. ive seen it happen. ive felt it happen from both male and female veiw. its a lot to have happen but it happens EVERYDAY. thats the point in this video. that everyone has a strong, abusive, angry and bi-polar disorder side. everyone in the world does. underneath all the smiles. XD i think i would know...
