“Can’t Control Myself” by Taeyeon

The presumption, all things considered, is that Taeyeon is addressing a romantic interest. Also, as emotionally illustrated throughout, this is a toxic relationship the vocalist is in, and the lyrical implication is that this reality is so due to being mistreated by her lover.

But the more pressing idea being presented, as implied by the title itself, is that despite its toxicity, this is a romance that the singer cannot walk away from. Or more simply put she has genuinely found herself in love, even if the person she has fallen for is akin to an A-hole. 

Or phrased otherwise this relationship has its drawbacks, but it has its pleasures also. So as it currently stands, the vocalist is more or less trapped in an abusive romance.
