Not The Way (I Want It To Be)

I tell you that it isn't fair,
But it's not like you care.
I ask you for it all,
And to catch me as I fall,
But you promise me nothing,
And now I'm breaking.

It isn't fair,
That you can't care,
You made me cry,
But you never made me shy,
Why can't we just be together,
Instead of being pushed farther,
Farther than my string will let me.

Why can't you see?

I don't know what's worth fighting for,
It makes you angery to the core,
Feels like I'm asking for eveything,
But you say it's nothing,
I can't shy away,
I hope you don't want to stay.

It isn't fair,
That you can't care,
You made me cry,
But you never made me shy,
Why can't we just be together,
Instead of being pushed farther,
Farther than my string will let me.

Why can't you see?

I'm living in your lie,
It's as if you could fly,
And you just can't stay,
Leave me alone,
Or can't you?
It's as if you're addicted to me.

It isn't fair,
That you can't care,
You made me cry,
But you never made me shy,
Why can't we just be together,
Instead of being pushed farther,
Farther than my string will let me.

Why can't you see?

It just isn't fair,
That you care
You can't make me cry,
But you made me shy,
Why can't we be farther,
Instead of being pushed together,
Closer than I'll ever want to be,
With you anyway.

Why don't you see,
I've always been closer to you,
Than to me,
And that's not the way I want it to be,
I need time to myself,
Time to realize,
This isn't worth fighting for!
