"My Oh My"

By Tristan Prettyman

Lyrics:

You got my heart on a string
You want me back again and you know I’ll do anything
Just when I thought I was free
Knock, knock, the door is locked
But you still got a key

All too familiar, the moment it shows up
Now everything I know seems to fly

My oh my
You’re getting under my skin
Don’t know why I’m always letting you in
Just when I got my life together again,
Here you are standing there
Tell me why I should try-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y

You got me under a spell
You look like heaven, oh, but you put me through hell
God knows there’s nothing to gain
Well who am I to deny, we’re both playing the same game
All too familiar, the moment it blows up
Now everything I know seems to fly

My oh my
You’re getting under my skin
Don’t know why I’m always letting you in
Just when I got my life together again,
Here you are standing there
Tell me why I should try-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y

And I know that you’re no good for me
And it makes no sense at all
Still I keep coming back for more
‘Cause I’m addicted to your call

I know you ain’t no good for me
And all the lies and the lines you fed to me
The way you kept coming back for me
Like the last breath left of the air I need

I know you ain’t no good for me
And all the lies and the lines you fed to me
The way you kept coming back for me
Like the last breath left of the air I need

My oh my
You’re getting under my skin
Don’t know why I’m always letting you in
Just when I got my life together again,
Here you are standing there
Tell me why I should try-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y

My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y
My oh my-y-y

My oh my
I know you ain’t no good for me
And all the lies and the lines you fed to me

Meaning

This song is about someone who was hurt by another person, and she is trying to forget about him. When she finally moves on with life he comes back into it. He gets himself entwined into her life again, and she finds herself reliving the reason why they seperated in the first place. Even though she knows he's no good she keeps going back to him.
