Lyrics

I don't feel like you love me – just left behind
You say that you trust me, then you change your mind
You say everyone lies about you, so why shouldn't I?
I once loved to delight you, but it's out of sight, out of mind

A daydream deceiver with no release
A frail Faustus believing in a papier-mâché Mephistopheles
All the free things distract you – I just wish you'd tried
To get the feelings surmounted; now we're out of time

Well that's all I need
That's all I need
Well that's all I need
That's all I need

Take a look at the feelings, dear
Have I got this right?
Are we fresh out of reasons here
Burdened out of sight?
Am I getting the feeling
That I should hide away?
Did you ever believe
Oh, that life beckoned everyone this way?

Do ashes end the pain my dear?
No, I don't think that's right
The burden in your mind I feared
Has drawn you out of sight

We'll forgive you everything
And we would share your pain
I only wish I could right now
I hate you

(I don't feel like you love me)
That's all I need
(I don't feel like you love me)
Well that's all I need
(I don't feel like you love me)
That's all I need
(I don't feel like you love me)
That's all I need
