ALL I EVER WANTED

WAS TO BE A MAN

YOU WOULD WANT TO COME TO

SO I COULD

DRAW YOU IN TO

SHARE ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS

WITH YOU

BUT THIS IS REAL LIFE

AND YOUR DESIRES

THEY DONT INCLUDE ME

NOW I LAY HERE

IN THE DARK

PENETATED BY THIS

LACK OF YOU

NOW I LAY HERE

IN THE SILENCE

PENETRATED BY THIS

NEED FOR YOU

ALL THIS LOVE I FELT

HAS TAKEN A HOLD

AND WONT LET GO OF ME

SO I CARRY ON

IN THE VAIN HOPE

THAT YOU WILL COME BACK LOOKING

FOR ME

BUT THIS IS REAL LIFE

AND YOUR DESIRES

THEY DONT INCLUDE ME

WHEN ALL HAS COME TO END

AND YOUR PRESENCE IS GONE FROM ME

ITS ALL I CAN DO TO KEEP MYSELF

FROM CRUMBLING TO THE GROUND

AND FEELING ALL THE LOSS

THAT HAS FLOODED SO DEEP INTO ME

SO

NOW I LAY HERE IN THE DARK

PENETRATED BY THIS LACK OF YOU

NOW I LAY HERE IN THE SILENCE

PENETRATED BY THIS NEED FOR YOU

THIS IS REAL LIFE

AND ALL YOUR DESIRES

THEY JUST DONT INCLUDE ME
