Self Esteem 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
Well, I know she's...

    A guy is infatuated with a girl but still has issues with her and is fed up with her being unreliable and sleeping with his friends but he can't say no to her because he has no self esteem.

    To me, the song is about some guy, who obviously isn't the most confident in himself ("That's ok cause I got no self esteem") in a tricky situation with a girl. The girl often comes to him for sex, and that's all she cares about. In the beginning, the protagonist has reasoning ("I wrote her off for the tenth time today, and practiced all the things I would say"). But when she came to the door, all of that vanished and he "took her back and made her dessert". It's about him being in a fucked up platonic relationship and not having the balls to get rid of the girl.

    The singer is a "dweeb" and no girl will date him. However, he has a huge dick, and one girl comes to him for sex when she wants it. He knows that he should say no, but "it's kinda hard when she's ready to go."
