When it comes to push and shove
It's teenage unrequited love
And it makes me sick
Yeah
I've been complaining to my friends
They think they'll never hear the end
Of you boy

But what's a girl to do
When she's still thinking of you
And you don't feel it
And when I'm lying in my bed
These crappy pictures fill my head
It makes me sick again

If I wanted to make you feel OK
I'd say I felt the same way
Can't 'cause I don't know if it's gonna go away

You make me want you
So bad
You make me want
What I've never been able
To have

And when I feel like burning (?)
When you know I've been slacking off in school
I've been so lazy today
Haven't even had the strength to say
Hello to you

When I get jealous I'm so dirty
All this (?) ringing in my head
And on my pillow
But the confusion covers me
In a way that you can't see
You never will know

If I wanted to make you feel OK
I'd say I felt the same way
Can't 'cause I don't know if it's gonna go away

You make me want you so bad
You make me want what I've never been able
Too have
You make me want this so bad
You make me want what I've never been able
Too have

If I wanted to make you feel OK
I'd say I felt the same way
Can't 'cause I don't know if it's gonna go away

    General Commentthis song is my life story...
    i was with a guy for 6 months... and he made me want him so bad.. of course i "had" him...
    he ended up cheating on me with a married woman whom has 2 kids and is a waitress at our dennys in town..
    dennys is 24 hours so its a hangout all hourse of the night..
    but yeah he still makes me want him so bad... he makes me want soemthing ive never been able to have..
    it kills me.. sometimes i really dont have the strength to call him and say hi...
    cuz i know he will drain every last breath outta me... it sucks... this song is beautifully written and she sings it amazingly.. awesomely talented little voice!!
