The Offspring - Self Esteem


LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA

I wrote her off for the tenth time today.
Practiced all of the things I would say.
She came over, I lost my nerve.
I took her back and made her desert.

I know I'm being used.
That's ok man cause I like the abuse.
I know she playin with me.
That's okay cause I got no self esteem.

Owayo yeah yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah.

We make plans, go out at night.
Wait till two then I turn out the light.
This rejections got me so low.
She keeps it up I just might tell her so.

Owayo yeah yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah.

Way she say, aaah that she wants only me,
then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends.
Way she say, aaah that I'm like a disease,
and 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.
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.
Well 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.

Owayo yeah yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah
Oooh yeah yeah.

Way she say, aaah that she wants only me,
then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends.
Way she say, aaah that I'm like a disease,
and 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

      In this song the lead singer is basically ticked off cause this chick keeps leading him on. He really cares for this girl deeply, but she keeps messing with his head. He wants so desperately to hold onto his feelings for her, but he's at his breaking point.

Uses:
Letting out aggression in a way that doesn't kill people or small furry animals.
