The Offspring – Self Esteem (Live)


I wonder where all those people in the audience are today…

Artist: The Offspring
Album: Smash
Year: 1994

Lyrics:
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, man, ’cause I like the abuse
I know she’s playing with me
That’s okay ’cause I got no self esteem
We make plans to go out at night
I wait ’til 2 then I turn out the light
This rejection’s got me so low
If she keeps it up I just might tell her so
When she’s saying that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she’s saying 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, yeah, 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
When she’s saying that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she’s saying 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, yeah, yeah
