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 desverve
Now I know I'm being used
That's okay man cause I like the abuse
I know she's playing with me
That's okay cause I've got no self esteem

oh yeah, yeah, yeah

We make plans to go out at night
I wait till 2 then I turn out the light
All this rejection's got me so low
If she keeps it up I just might tell her so

When she's saying all that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she's saying 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!

Now I'll relate this little bit
That happens more than I'd like to admit
Late at night she knocks on my door
She's Drunk again and looking to score
Now I know I should say no
But that's kind of 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 yeah, yeah, yeah

When she's saying all that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she's saying 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!

    General CommentNO! BAD EVANESCENE! i love them to death but oh hell leave the offspring alone!

    the offspring's songs are just that...THEIR songs...i can't imagine why you'd want to cover them.

    i'm sorry, but this angers me.

    General CommentEvanescence is the best they can cover any song they wish (within reason) and they can make it good.

    General CommentI actually dont like Evanescence that much('cept for Imaginary on Origin)...but they did a pretty good job covering this. The original is better though.

    General CommentAlthough i agree the original is better, i adore Evanescence and think they did an awesome job. Its not as though they were planning to sell it or anything, they just decided it was a good song and performed it at one of their concerts. Its funny to listen to it though and hear all the crowd singing along with it.

    As for the meaning.....its pretty obvious!
