you want me, but i don't want you
in a billion years that'll still be true
you live and die by the words i say
dream of me all night, think of me all day

you want me, but i don't want you
you've defined your life by the things i do
i'm a god to you, the most amazing man
you'd cut off yours just to hold my hand

you want me, but i don't want you
every wish i have you'll see it through
i could destroy the world by myself in a day
"you're the greatest, you're the best," is all you'd say

you want me, but i don't want you
you'd follow my lead down to your doom
every word from my mouth is the law of your heart
you can't even imagine a day that we'd part

you want me, but i don't want you
no matter what you say or what you do
please get away from this happy place
my vision is scarred by your ugly face

you want me, but i don't want you
you'd even kill your own mother for me too
i'm the be-all, the end-all, it's so plain to see
tell all the people how much you need me

you want me, but i don't want you
no response, eh? well, i know it's still true...
go ahead, just tell them how much you do
why am i not hearing anything from you?

you want me, but i don't want you
but i've just heard that the impossible is true
you've found another, you've been set free
what gave you the right to forget about me?

you wanted me, but i didn't want you
how could you do this? what's wrong with you?
get back over here, come back to me right now!
are you joking? what is this? how can this be? how?!?

you wanted me, but i didn't want you
please call me, please tell me what i can do!
i feel so helpless, someone help me if you can!
i never knew that she made me who i am

you wanted me, but i didn't want you
there is no way on earth this is what you meant to do!
oh god, it's happened, it's over, and now i see
that i need you, but you don't need me

[siiiigggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh]

now i want you, because you don't want me
i'll haunt you, because you don't want me!
i'm nothing, because you don't want me
oh, god help me, my life is over
because you don't...................want..............................me
