[Verse 1:]
Baby, baby
When we first met
I never felt something so strong
You were like my lover
And my best friend
All wrapped into one
With a ribbon on it
And all of a sudden
You went, left
I didn't know how to follow
It's like a shot
That spun me around
And now my heart left
I feel so empty and hollow

[Pre Chorus:]
And I'll never give myself to another
The way I gave it to you
Don't even recognize
The ways you hurt me
Do you?
It's gonna take a miracle to bring me back
And you're the one to blame

[Chorus:]
And now I feel like, oh
You're the reason
Why I'm thinking
I don't wanna smoke on
These cigarettes no more
I guess that's what I get
For wishful thinking
I should've never let you enter my door
Next time you wanna go on and leave
I should just let you go on and do it
Cause now I'm using like I bleed

It's like I checked into rehab and
Baby, you're my disease
It's like I checked into rehab and
Baby, you're my disease

I gotta check into rehab
'Cause baby you're my disease
I gotta check into rehab
'Cause baby you're my disease

[Verse 2:]
Damn,
Ain't it crazy when you're love swept?
You'll do anything for the one you love
'Cause anytime that you needed me
I'd be there
It's like you were my favorite drug
The only problem is
That you was using me
In a different way that I was using you
But now that I know, it's not meant to be
You gotta go, I gotta ween myself off of you

[Pre Chorus:]
And I'll never give myself to another
The way I gave it to you
Don't even recognize
The ways you hurt me
Do you?
It's gonna take a miracle to bring me back
And you're the one to blame

[Chorus:]
And now I feel like, oh
You're the reason
Why I'm thinking
I don't wanna smoke on
These cigarettes no more
I guess that's what I get
For wishful thinking
I should've never let you enter my door
Next time you wanna go on and leave
I should just let you go on and do it
Cause now I'm using like I bleed

It's like I checked into rehab and
Baby, you're my disease
It's like I checked into rehab and
Baby, you're my disease

I gotta check into rehab
'Cause baby you're my disease
I gotta check into rehab
'Cause baby you're my disease

[Bridge: Timbaland]
Now ladies, gimme that
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, now gimme that
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Now ladies, gimme that
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, now gimme that
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, Oh, oh, oh

[Pre Chorus:]
Oh
You're the reason
Why I'm thinking
I don't wanna smoke on
These cigarettes no more
I guess that's what I get
For wishful thinking
I should've never let you enter my door
Next time you wanna go on and leave
I should just let you go on and do it
Cause now I'm using like I bleed

It's like I checked into rehab and
Baby, you're my disease
It's like I checked into rehab and
Baby, you're my disease

I gotta check into rehab
'Cause baby you're my disease
I gotta check into rehab
'Cause baby you're my disease

    I like the song because it has a very significant meaning to it! It's saying how she's in love with this guy but the only thing he did to her was use her and treat her wrong. And she's realizing that she needs to get over him but its so hard because she has deep feelings for this person. So that's why she's saying she's gotta check into rehab because he's her disease. He's causing her to beat herself up when its not even neccesary. I like the song because its helping me with my problem that I'm going through right now and it's speaking the truth and I applaud rihanna for putting this song out because there are people like me that need 2 hear this. Personally I love this song.

    This song is about being in love then getting ur heart broken and learning how to fix ur heart. This song reminds me a lot of what I have been through recently. I met this guy and he told me he loved me but really he didn't and all he did was use me. It hurts me a lot, but I know I have to be strong for my heart and move on.

    I love this song but it makes me feel sad when I listen to it coz I'm in a situation like that. I really like this guy but he is my friend's ex. And he says he likes me alot but I'm not sure if its as much as I feel for him. He knows how I feel and sometimes I think he does really like me and at other times I just think he is taking advantage of my feelings and I'm being used. So whenever I hear it I just think of him and it hurts but I can't seem to get rid of the feelings. Great song though rihanna. You keep getting better girl!

    The girl is addicted to the boy but she wants to let him go because he's causing bad things to her. That's why she swears she's not gonna love anyone else the way she loved this boy.
    This song is genius. I can't believe Justin thought of this song. It's so superb! I really love Justin. It's so hard to write an are 'n B song. Rock is easier to write. That's why I think this song is greatly written. Rihanna is my idol.

    So I actually feel this song because of it's lyrics. I have been in love with one boy for 2 years but he didn"t even notice me was quite popular so he was entertainig with different girls. I was waiting a miracle to happen so one day it happend and sudden we became a couple. I was the happiest girl in the world than my first love friend was my first boyfriend and my waiting wasn't waist of time. We were together for 4 days then he left me and told me that his previous girlfriend askd him to return to her because she was in love with him and she'd do enything for him ande he told me that he couldn't refuse her. So he left but the worse is that I still wait for him and i'll be there if he wants me and I miss him so much now. He's drug to me and I will never be able to say him no.
