LyricsEdit

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

And while I know I'm bein' used
That's okay, man, 'cause I like the abuse
While I know she's playin' with me
That's okay 'cause I got no self esteem

Oh way oh yeah
Yeah
Oh yeah yeah

Oh yeah
Yeah
Oh yeah
Yeah

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

Oh way oh yeah
Yeah
Oh yeah yeah

Oh yeah
Yeah
Oh yeah yeah

When she's sayin'
All that she wants, only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends

When she's sayin'
All that I'm like, a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend

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
FREEFORM

Now I'll relate
This little bit
It happens more than I'd like to admit

Late at night
She knocks on my door
She's drunk again and lookin' to score

Now I know
I should say no, but
It's kinda 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

Oh way oh yeah
Yeah
Oh yeah yeah

Oh yeah
Yeah
Oh yeah yeah

When's she's sayin'
All that she wants, only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends

When she's sayin'
All that I'm like, a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend

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
