by Rick Springfield & Matt Bissonette

My so-called friends all quit
Without a kiss goodbye
Everybody thinks I’m a creep
And so do I

I think they all think
That I’m insane
You’re the weak link in my chain
I’ll climb on your cross
Go ahead and crucify me

Because I hate myself
‘cos I want you
I hate myself
I’m a one man wrecking crew

You’re so bad for me
I’m like a dead man walking
So let’s connect real soon
And get ’em all talking
We’ll circle the wagons around your bed
And prove I’m right with everything I said

I hate myself
‘cos I want you
I hate myself
I’m a one man wrecking crew

Damn the danger
The scandal too
Burn me down
I’m black and blue
I hate myself
But I want you

I hate myself (I hate myself)
I hate myself (I hate myself)

Because I hate myself
‘cos I want you
I hate myself
I’m a one man wrecking crew

You’re bad for me
I’m bad for you
My big breakdown
Your big break through

I hate myself
But I want you
