I wrote him off for the tenth time today,
And practiced all the things I would say.
He came over, I lost my nerve.
I took him back and made him dessert.

I know I'm being used, oh
That's okay, because I like the abuse.
I I I know he's playing with me
Oh that's ok because I've got no self esteem.

Ohhh, yeah, yeah. Oh oh oh...

We make plans, go out at night.
I wait till two then I turn out the light.
All this rejection's got me so oh low
If he keeps it up I just might tell him so

Ohhh, yeah, yeah. Oh oh oh...

When he's saying, I aah...
Then I wonder why he sleeps with my friends.
When he's saying, oh that I'm like a disease,
Then I wonder how much more I can stand.
Well I guess, I should stick 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 a little bit.
That happens more than I'd like to admit
Late at night he knocks on my door
All drunk again and looking to score

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

Ohhh, yeah, yeah. Oh oh oh...

When he's saying, oh that he wants only me,
Then I wonder why he sleeps with my friends.
When he's saying, oh that I'm like a disease,
Then I wonder how much more I can stand.
Well I guess, I should stick 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!
