It's Making Me Sick, Here

-

It's making me sick, here

Staying home because of rain

I just want a vehicle

To drive me around and 'round and 'round

It's making me sick, here

Staying so far from your dentist chair

I just wanna rush into love with you

Just to make you happy

As happy as you're making me

It's making me sick, here

The happiness goes straight to my head

__and makes me sad

Sad because I can't be the man for you

The man that you're needing

And probably have

__so I am doomed

The miracle of love has not come to me

Because you are obviously just

__not the one for me

Because I'm not the one for you

It's making me sick, here

Wanting to slit my fucking throat

But I know I won't

Because I love you

I've just gone of my rocker

Unattempting thee obliterating

__of the me-and-you

____that can just never be

I'm waiting for nothing

__to happen

____between you and me

Because "nothing"

__is all we can become

It's making me sick, here

All of the thoughts I have of you

The spiraling out of control

That my heart does when in your midst

These are terrible feelings of love

I know

And I can never have you for my own

It's making me sick, here

"I just want you to be so near

That I could smell your blood

Pumping thru your veins"

But things will never be that way

So I crumble inside my life

__that lacks the you

____that I still need

______to be with me

I can't be happy

'Cause you're not with me

It's the most horrible way to live

"To be without you

__is all that life can give

All it can offer to me

'Cause this is all that life is"

And if that sounds negative to the world

Then they can go fuck themselves

'Cause I don't give a shit

I just want you

And I'm tired of wanting
