Informazioni Generali

Scritta da: Self Esteem

Self Esteem è un singolo della band punk The Offspring pubblicato nel 1994. Ha raggiunto la posizione #4 nella Billboard Modern Rock Tracks. La traccia Self Esteem figura nell'album Smash del 1994. Gli Evanescence ne hanno fatto una cover il 31 dicembre del 2002 durante il New Year’s Eve concert al Nitelife Rocks (un nightclub di Little Rock)[1].

Questa canzone narra di un ragazzo che nutre una forte passione per una sua coetanea, la quale però spesso lo trascura ed ignora; senonché la ragazza, quando è molto ubriaca, non ha problemi a concedersi proprio a questo suo "amico". Il ragazzo prova quindi a far leva sul proprio orgoglio (in inglese appunto self-esteem) per rifiutare la donna, ma alla fine capisce che non c'è nulla da fare e ne accetta volentieri la compagnia[2].

The Offspring Version

La la la la la la la la la la

I wrote her off for the tenth time today
And practiced all the things I would say
When she came over I lost my nerve
I took her back and made her dessert
Now I know I'm being used
But that's okay man cause I like the abuse
I know she's playing with me
But that's okay cause I've got no self esteem

Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah
Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah

We make plans go out at night
I wait till 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

Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah
Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah

When she's saying, oh that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she saying, oh that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can stand
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!

Now I'll relay this little bit
It 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
It'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

Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah
Oh wayo, yeah, yeah
Ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah

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 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!
