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

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 achin’
and tumblin’ 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 a world where you understand
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 lights

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

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
