All these games you play
You're messin with my head
[You're messin with my head]

And I don't why I'll stay
I should leave instead
[I should leave instead]

When I speak from my heart
You laugh like it's a game
[Well this ain't no game]

Yeah, we make great friends
But it just isn't the same
Ohhhhh

And I know
This is not the way it should be
And I know you treat him like me
[Badoobie-doobie-doobie-doo]
But I don't wanna stop

[CHORUS]
Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
I don't wanna stop

Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop

And I don't need you to buy me pretty things
[You don't pay for me]
Pay for my tatoos or buy me diamond rings
[I don't want those things]

All I know is that I'm happy to smile
[I wanna see you smile]
And it'd make my day if you'd just stay for a while

[CHORUS]
And I know
This is not the way it should be
And I know you treat him like me
[Badoobie-doobie-doobie-doo]
But I don't wanna stop

Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
I don't wanna stop

Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
I don't wanna stop

Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
I never wanna stop

Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna stop
I never wanna stop

    General CommentBasically it represents everything of this guy I know; he actually recommended it to me on account of it being how he felt. It's that he really likes me, and we can't exactly be together, but he really can't help himself. He doesn't like it when I try and make it equal, like paying for things (like the second verse) or just acting like I like him.

    General CommentHey thats me! That is an anecdote. I had this boyfriend i really really liked, but i also kinda liked this other guy i was around more. And i basically did what this song is saying. Its like that guy is singing to me everytime i hear it.

    General CommentIt's about this guy, who feels he can take care of himself, and doesn't want pitty from his girlfriend. And he doesn't want to be compared to her ex. I think he is saying "I can take care of myself, and i don't need to be someone else."

    General CommentHey I like this song...I don't care if they're punk or not. As long as the music's good. Labels suck. They're for people who judge people before they know them and I hate people like that. All I'm saying is you gotta get to know where they're coming from. They're not punk but they're not poser's either.
    And this song kix ass. The 2nd cd's better t hoguh
