If you're anywhere around here, just come back.
I'll give you everything you need this time, I promise.
It's not so much the way you hurt me, it's more like the way you make me want to hurt myself.

When you show up it's like a landmine, close enough to leave indelible scars adhered to one such impressionable person.
Don't say names, protect the innocent, he sure needs a break.

But, What if everyone's got to get back just in time to smoke that last cigarette, and you're still lingering around the set, trying to set me off.

Maybe we could take some time to work this out.
I really thing our duties here are the same:
Make it bearable to be careful with each other's emotions

But the only way to mine out what you're doing,
Is for you to envy me.
Then, we can both stay interested.

Oh Charlena, maybe you should write this down,
So we could get it right next time around.
No, Charlena, It's not as simple as it sounds,
To keep your feet planted on common ground.

If anyone knows you, I do.
And if anyone can forgive you, well I'd try to.

But you keep on doing that thing to me.
It's like your dragging me down into your disease,
And can't you see it's brining me to my knees.

What if we could get it all back,
The same way it was before you.
Attacked all evidence of decency in me,
And left me in the debris?

So, Charlena, maybe you could sort this out,
And tell me how you feel about it now.
Whoa, Charlena, maybe you should just sit down,
I'm not sure that it's worth this anyhow.
