(Ladies!)
Why can't I find somebody else
When I know
Know that you're doing wrong
Its so hard
Hard to let go

I done went through just about two bags of tissues baby
And you're looking at me like you ain't the issue baby
And though I tried to leave
I cant stop missing you baby
And I keep coming
I keep coming back

I keep going in circles, circles
Round and round
And while you're doing me so wrong
I just keep holding you down
I feel so stupid, foolish
Loving you this way
But what I can I say
But I wanna go
I wanna go
But I keep coming back

Why I'm so confused for you,
I have no answer boy
When I feel so used by you just like a toy
Its a shame that you don't care enough
To even give me half the love I give to you
I live for you baby
I'm ashamed to say that I'm to blame for how you act
Cause I keep coming
I keep coming back

I'm going in circles, circles
Round and round
And while you're doing me so wrong
I just keep holding you down
I feel so stupid, foolish
Loving you this way
But what I can I say
But I wanna go
I wanna go
But I keep coming back
I cant stop,
I cant stop, missing you baby
(I cant stop)

I stay cause I love you
But I hate that I stay
You know I won't go
That's why you treat me this way
I want to be happy
Though it hurts me so bad
Don't know what it is that keeps me coming back

Keep going in circles, circles
Round and round
And while you're doing me so wrong
I just keep holding you down
I feel so stupid, foolish
Loving you this way
But what I can I say
But I wanna go
I wanna go
But I keep coming back

Going in circles, circles
Round and round
And while you're doing me so wrong
I just keep holding you down
I feel so stupid, so foolish
Loving you all this way
But what I can I say
But I wanna go
I wanna go
But I keep coming back

    I think this song is about being codependent: in love with/ addicted to an addict -
    "Why can't I find someone else when I know you're doing wrong?"

    He's probably using often and treating her badly. Alcoholics/Drug Addicts usually don't accept responsibility for their actions. -
    "I done went through just about two packs of tissues baby, and you're looking at me like you aint the issue baby."


    She's enabling him to continue the drug by staying with him. His behavior hasn't changed, so she should leave him, but is addicted to him. -
    "I'll stay cause I love you, but I hate that I stay. You know I won't go that's why you treat me this way." and "I'm ashamed to say that I'm to blame for how you act - 'cause I keep coming (I keep coming back.)"

    Until she leaves him for good he's not going to have enough reason to change his behavior. By not setting boundaries or having consequences for him, she's literally enabling him/ keeping him from getting treatment. She's holding him down. -
    "and while you're doing me so wrong I just keep holding you down"
