Quit surrounding me
i'm already down and gone
locked defeat
got your eyes pealed
the only thing holding me are
why won't you quit
dragging me around
we can tell by now
that there's no such thing as love
and i can't do anything to forget
all that you are
how, long must i wait
oh, to break
and you know it'll be easier to snap
and if by now
but you wont let me go
we can tell by now
that there's no such thing as love
and i can't do anything
to forget all that you are
and as you see
i'm too real

    General CommentHave no fear, here are the real lyrics:


    Quit surrounding me
    I'm already down and cornered
    Locked in defeat as your bright eyes beam
    The only thing holding me here
    Why won't you quit dragging me 'round?

    And we can tell by now
    That there's no such thing as running
    And I can't do anything
    To forget all that you are

    And how long must I wait
    Oh to break
    And you know it'd be easier
    To snap in half by now
    But you won't let me go
    But you won't let me go

    And we can tell by now
    That there's no such thing as running
    And I can't do anything
    To forget all that you are

    Forget all you are...

    And I'm forever lost from hope
    And I'm forever lost from hope

    And now you seem all too real
    And now you seem all too real
    And now you seem all too real
