you don’t see me lyrics – josie and the pussycats

“you don’t see me”

this is the place where i sit
this is the part where
i love you too much
is this as hard as it gets?
’cause i’m getting tired
of pretending i’m tough
i’m here if you want me
i’m yours, you can hold me
i’m empty and aching and
tumbling and breakin’
’cause you don’t see me
and you don’t need me
and you don’t love me
the way i wish you would
the way i know you could

i dream of worlds
where you’d understand
and i dream a
million sleepless nights
i dream of fire when
you’re touching my hand
but it twists into smoke
when i turn on the light
i’m speechless and faded
it’s too complicated
is this how the book ends,
nothing but good friends?

’cause you don’t see me
and you don’t need me
and you don’t love me
the way i wish you would

this is the place in my heart
this is the place where
i’m falling apart
isn’t this just where we met?
and is this the last chance
that i’ll ever get?
i wish i was lonely
instead of just only
crystal and see-through
and not enough to you

’cause you don’t see me
and you don’t need me
and you don’t love me
the way i wish you would

’cause you don’t see me
and you don’t need me
and you don’t love me
the way i wish you would
the way i know you could
