Always A Detaching Feeling With You


The shattered pieces of my heart

Are all scattered across the world

My world cannot be picked up

__and put back together

But I don't care

I want you for forever

But you don't care

You won't approve of me

You just file me on your 'phone

And won't dial me

I'm just left alone

Sometimes I think

__you just don't have time for me

How busy can one woman be?

What? are you always surrounded

__by too many friends

____to remember I even exist?

Or is your distance from me my fault?

What am I doing wrong?

The clock on the wall

Doesn't go "ding-dong" anymore

Maybe I need a crack whore

__to take my mind off of you

But I don't have any crack

So I can't get one

I refuse to pay the dope man

To fulfill my desires

If I could just have you

__like I want

I'd never need a prostitute

I'd much rather have you forever

__than rent a prostitute for an hour

This stupid world around me

Is keeping me away from you

And keeping you away from me

But it's not my fault

Whatever I'm being punished for

So why is it my responsibility

__to make sure I suffer?

I should not have to kick you out of my life

Just to make amends to my enemies

So whatever reason there is

For you giving me the silent treatment

I'll always know it should not matter

Because whatever I did to my enemies

Is nothing I can be forgiven for

So they're never going to stop punishing me

So you're never going to be my "anything"

So why are you my "ev'rything"?

You're not even available

I don't know why my heart can't see that

Sooner or later we'll just be shoved back

__into each others' pasts

And I'll forget you


But I don't know what's gonna happen

__to my heart by then

Will you just be replaced?

Or will I just give up

And throw the memories of you away?

All that I know

Is that I don't get to have you today

And all I have is today

A today where there just won't be any you

At all

But my stupid heart

Does not understand that

Like I do

So won't leave me alone

Because I love you

Without even a reason to

And all that my feelings are doing

Is pushing you away

I guess I'm some kind of freak

Who you can't give the time of day to

I'll never understand why I want you

But I'll always know I can't ever have you

Maybe it's time I fall in love

__with somebody else again

'Cause never having you

__is going to my head again

And it's driving me crazy

And I'm in too much pain

To keep on living this way
