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

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

We make plans to go out at night
I wait till two 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
