When I close my eyes
All I see are visions of you
And then I open my eyes, your absence holds me down
I try but I can't shake myself loose

I can't command my brain
All I do is shrink and think of one thing
I'm sitting alone beside me
I'm digging a hole inside myself

All I want in the world I think I've found
When I look into your eyes
All I know is that I'm tired of the world around me
Please, please, please
Don't ignore me

Dedicated, here I am
Thinking of you with everything within me
I know you'll never feel me, never see me
Never know these thoughts of mine

But in my mind you're always there
Always smiling, always reaching out for me
The days don't warm with heartache
The days don't warm with emptiness

All I want is to somehow matter to you
Even if all else rejects me
All I know is that I'm hammered from the world around me
Please, please, please

Don't destroy me
Don't destroy me
Don't destroy me
Don't destroy me

All I want in the world I think I've found
When I look into your eyes
All I know is that I'm tired of the world around me
Please, please, please
Don't ignore me

I'd burn down time
Modify the way to get through to you
I know I'm standing in line for handouts that'll never come
But still, I don't care

Feeling like, looking like
They've confused everything
Pure is everything I am
Made out, wide-eyed, exposed
Unable to forget you

All I want is to somehow matter to you
Even all else rejects me
All I know is that I'm hammered from the world around me
Please, please, please
Don't destroy me
