“She” Lyrics

(She) She told me that she loved me
And like a fool, I believed her from the start
(She) She said she’d never hurt me
But then she turned around and broke my heart

(Ohh) Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong
(Hey!) I’m better off alone

(She) She devoured all my sweet love
Took all I had, and then she fed me dirt
(She) She laughed when I was cryin’
It was such a joke to see the way it hurt

(Ohh) Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong
(Hey!) I’m better off alone

And now I know just why she
Keeps me hangin’ ’round (Hangin’ ’round)
She needs someone to walk on
So her feet don’t touch the ground (Don’t touch the ground)
But I love her (Love her)
I need her (Need her)
I want her (Want her)
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
She, ah

[break]

(Ohh) Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey!) She only did me wrong now
(Hey!) I’m better off alone

(She) Why am I missing her?
(She) I should be kissing her
(She) Why am I missing her?
(She) I should be kissing her
