Please Don't Leave Me Lyrics

Da da da I could cut you into piecesda
da da da da

Da da da da da,

I don't know if I can yell any louder,
How many times have I kicked you out of here?
Or said something insulting?

Da da da da da

I can be so mean when I wanna...

    What an abusive, toxic and loving relationship song. Pink doesn't want her lover to break her heart, so she treats him like crap which makes him want to move on from her. He's afraid of her.

    I was just listening to this song. I am a huge Pink fan and the messages behind her lyrics often apply to my life and things I've been through. I looked up to see what others thought the meaning behind this song were and I was surprised that a few felt like I did. That this is a woman who struggles with BPD borderline personality disorder. I suffer and struggle with BPD and typically the biggest fear anyone who has this is being left or abandoned even after an abusive outburst towards the person we beg not to leave us we still struggle to understand why they are leaving us. It's a very difficult mental illness to have as the only treatment is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectal Behavioural Therapy which takes alot of hard work to implement into your life. I have lost so many people I truly loved due to my irritational behavior and unpredictable moods and my vindictive ways that take over when I'm hurt and lash out trying to gain control over the other person. Unless you live with this or a loved one does it's definitely hard to grasp what it's all about. It's a very sad depressing life and often times it ends in suicide whether intentional or not. I'd give just about anything (except my kids and grandkids) up to have a normal life and not live with this. Thank you Pink for bringing attention to a very misunderstood mental illness

    I’d say borderline personality disorder. I have this actually, so I do understand this song quite a bit...which sucks because it’s definitely abusive. See, this is kinda how we act, it’s like the book, ‘I hate you don’t leave me’ which I highly suggest you read if you yourself have BPD or someone you know does. It’s about a woman, who’s got BPD, who is abusive verbally, and possibly physically, she loves(or at least thinks she does) the person, who is gonna be her boyfriend in this scenario, she’s abusing, and anytime he goes to step away she freaks out, thinking she’s being abandoned again so she begs and begs for him to stay, and if he does...nothing really changes, and she’s the same. For me like, if I were in this situation(which I really hope I never am cause I couldn’t live with myself if I did that to someone) it’d kinda be a case of, push them away, don’t get close before they have a chance to hurt you, but your already attached and if they try to leave you Cling on and don’t let them. Just my opinion on the song-

    The subject is abusive towards her boyfriend, and when he finally goes to leave her, she starts apologising and talking about how she can't live without him. Underneath all her bad behaviour, she is lost, empty and terrified of being abandoned by him.

    This apologetic stage is common in abuse relationships, and often, the abuse repeats itself once the victim is lulled back into the relationship.

    I actually find it hard to believe that this song and the video that goes with it is not more controversial than it is. If it were a man singing about his relationship with a woman, I don't think radio stations would even want to play the song.

    Pink is apologizing to her boyfriend or ex boyfriend for mistreating him. She is deeply sorry for verbally and physically abusing him.

    I was married to a women like this for 12 years. I stayed in the relationship and tried to lover her into wellness because we have a daughter. There is a book about Borderline Personality Disorder titled "I hate you. Don't leave me. My wife's weapons were OC spending, screaming, and constant belittling. I am divorced 10 years now and my adult daughter has moved in with me. She has finally realized Mom will never be happy. I have been unsuccessful in forming a relationship with a women since then. I have no energy for someone else's issues. Mine are plenty for me to deal with.

    I think this song clearly shows a man in a relationship with a woman who has untreated Boarderline Personality Disorder.How would I know? I am a female with Boarderline Personality Disorder and before I went in to treatment I displayed the same types of behaviors to my partners.And it's not right. That is why I have chosen not to date until I get better.

    This song is about the destructive dance of commitment issues, or more specific separation anxiety. She's being afraid of being hurt emotionally which is expressed with the extreme behavior of pushing him away, realizing she literally can't live without him and tried to fix it again by stop him from leaving.

    It's about a girl who doesn't show how much she truly loves her man and every time he acts like he is leaving her she shows him how much he does mean to her. Then goes back to treating him like crap until he tries to leave again. On the inside she really does love the man, but has a hard way of showing it.

    This song is about my ex g/f to a tea. very abusive physically and mentally.No matter what i did i was always wrong and when i try defend myself it was all my fault and then she'd use me as a punch bag. ickwd me out a thousand times and was capable of anything. This wonan smashed my heart in more than a million pieces and claimed she'd never been this nasty to anyone but me. I gave her everything even a daughter then got rid of me. And i still love her and think it could work if she sorted out her anger issues.I miss her so much. I didnt want her to leave me.

    this song is about a couple who suffer from abuse and one of them gets kicked out, even though they really dont want them to go after the abuse for some space, but then comes back and it starts all over again.

    I think this song is about how pink is rude, abnoxious, rough and teasing towards her lover. But for a tough girl like pink, this is just her way of showing affection. To pink her additude towards her lover is "all just a contest, the one who wins is the one who hits the hardest".

    Pink is clearly the playfully rude and teasing one, who also happens to be quick to anger in their relationship whereas her lover is probably the somewhat timid and serious type who takes everything to heart. Her lover thinks that pink is serious about her teasing and wants to break up with her because she's had enough. (some people can be very sensitive)

    Pink realizing what she's done and how she's acted, is consumed with dispair at losing her lover and writes this song to win her lover back.

    pink never says anything about hitting her lover. "you're my perfect little punchingbag, and i need you, I'm sorry." when she says this she means that she loves to tease her lover and is sorry for going overboard.

    It's ridiculous to assume pink would be abusive towards someone she loves enough to write a song where she is basically begging for her lover to stay with her! Trust me, i'm the type of person who likes to tease. We love to infuriate people just to get a reaction, it's just the way we show that we care. I can relate.
