Lyrics

All along I had to talk about it
But like a two edged sword,
He touched you and it stabs

All along I knew you were
A phony girl
You sit behind the mask
And you control your world

You sit around and I watch your face
I try to find the truth but that’s your hiding place
You say you love me but its hard to see

See more lyrics

Cause when he’s in your arms,
Your throwing rocks at me
Who do you love?
Is it me?
Well, I don’t know
Who do you love?
That I want
If you had
If you knew me

(There is nothing in your eyes)
There is nothing in your eyes
(But that’s the way you cry)
But that’s the way you cry, girl (cry, girl)
(All is grand, all is bright)
All is grand, all is bright
(You’re just steady in my mind)

I walk around I’m sufferin’
In my doom
When I come to you,
You’re sittin’ in your room
You sit around in the strangest place
So take off the mask
So I can see your face
Who do you love?

Is it me?
Well, I don’t know
Who do you love?
That I want ya
If you had
I know you

(Heaven must be weary)
Heaven must be weary
(Your smile is scary)
You got me scared, girl
(Insincere, empty tears)
You got me scared, girl

(Heaven must be weary)
Heaven must be weary
(Your smile is scary)
You know ooh, babe
(Insincere, empty tears)
Na na na
(Where’s your soul? Where did it go?)

I walk around, I’m suffering in my doom
When I come to you, you’re sitting in your room
You sit around in the strangest place
So take off the mask, so I can see your face

Who do you love?
Is it me?
Well, I don’t know
Who do you love?
Gotta want ya
If he had
I know you

Who do you love?
Is it me?
Well,
I don’t know
Who do you love?
God I want ya
If he can
I don’t know
I don’t wanna talk about it (let’s talk about it)
I don’t wanna talk about it (let’s talk about it)
I don’t wanna talk about it (let’s talk about it)
