"When she's saying, oh that she wants only me
 Then i wonder why she sleeps with my friends
 When she's saying, oh that I'm like the 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 your really care
 Right, yeah."
