She doesn't know I love her

I have to show her

Not tell her

But she's not seeing it

So what am I doing?

Am I not showing it?

"Tell me what is happening, God

'Cause I just don't get it"

I know I'm not a saint

Maybe I just deserve to be burned

I honestly do hurt

I'm goin' crazy

__like a burning desire

Head over heals

In love

__and on fire

I talked to a thousand people

Acquaintances here and there

And some handful of selected friends

But I never told her

__how I feel

What's the deal?

Is it because I know it my heart

__that she doesn't wanna her it?

What is wrong with me?

I'm bleeding in love

__on thee inside

But I'm in a fury of pain

__on thee outside

She has no idea

__does she?

Jean is like a miracle

But how much of her do I deserve?

I haven't earned her love

So I continue to burn

2 different people

And it's making it hard on me to see

That she doesn't love me

Though I know that so well

I'm blinded by something

I'm attached

__and in Hell

I may have changed her life

But does she belong on mine?

It just seems like she doesn't want

__to be with me

So the fire burs higher and higher

As I die for her


__but surely

Rotting to death

Because I can't have her
