I Don’t Like Me

I Don’t Like Me

I don’t like me but you love me
No matter what I do you stick around
When I’m really mean there’s no in between
Well baby somehow you just stand your ground

I don’t like me but you love me
Now I don’t want to say those things I say
I’ve got no control on this nasty soul
Honey don’t know why you even stay

I wish that I could stop it’s all a big mistake
Before I start again and set your heart to breaking
Still you stay when you could walk away
And leave me wondering how to end this bad thing

I don’t like me but you love me
No matter what I do you hold my hand
I don’t deserve you ‘cause I’ll hurt you
It’s hard on you no matter where you land

I wish that I could chalk it up to some deception
When all I’m sending out to you is bad reception
I’m a no-man’s-land I don’t understand
Just how it is you’re still my biggest fan

I wish that I could stop it’s all a big mistake
Before I start again and set your heart to breaking
Still you stay when you could walk away
And leave me wondering how to end this bad thing

I don’t like me but you love me / I don’t like me but you love me
I don’t like me but you love me / I don’t like me you still love me
