I can't be here
While this scene is playing out
While you're on edge
You take it away
Just to see what you have left
It isn't much
I have to say
That you're building a fence
To keep all distractions out
and to keep all attractions in
You've left me no choice
I'm floating away
Cause you're playing hard to want
And hard to ignore

But i can't be near you
While you fashion something new
While you're alone
Isn't it always the way?
You should take your own advice
as readily as you give it out
But you're using past tense
like you're already absolved and
Like i'm already expired
You've left me no chioce
I'm floating away
As i'm playing hard to want
and hard to ignore

But when you speak it feels better
And when you stare it feels better
Is this the bit you don't remember?
Because you say you think it's probably better that way
Cause it saves confusion

But i know you're playing
and i can't take it
So i'm playing hard to want oh oh oh
(you keep on saying)
(so i'll keep on staying)
(and you keep on preying)
And i can't take it
So i'm playing hard to want and hard to ignore
