You just dont love me
And I just dont care
Oh I never said I would play fair
Something so perfect and so rare
There is no cure
Theres not a prayer, a prayer
So what can I do?

I am the only perfect choice
You've met your match
I've lost my voice
And when youre gone it gets so cold
I swear I'm too young to be this old, this old
so what can I do?

Oh I've been better
You know whats pure
And you know whats right
But I'm forever
Just do the right thing for once in your life, in your life

I've got a right to be this wrong
What started with a lie and a dare
All of me aches and the best of me is gone
And all that I am is out
And laid bare, and laid bare
So what can I do?
So what can I do?

Oh I've been better
You want whats pure
And you want whats right
But I'm forever just do the right thing for once in your life, in your life
So what can I do?

Its all I am (x4)

Oh I've been cheated
Covered in diamonds and covered in filth
But I'm still breathing
Oh please stick around
And I'll build you a world, you a world

Oh I've been strangled
Passed beyond ?? cut down to size
My life just dangles
Oh theres no ?? for once in my life, in my life
So what can I do?
So what can I do?

I know that I, I'm just a lost girl
But please stick around
And I'll build you a world
I'll build you a world
I'll build you a world

    General Commentseems like a song about being left. shes looking back now and feeling lonely. towards the end shes getting desperate and begging not to be left saying " please stick around and Ill build you a world" - funny considering at the begining she is singing about how he doesnt love her and she doesnt care.

    General CommentI think she still not caring that he doesn't love her at the end of the song, she just wants him to be around anyway.

    General CommentBy the way i think this is what the song is about: You love this person so much you don't give a shit that he doesn't love you, you just need him around, but he wants whats pure and whats right and you're old, wrong, lost but you're forever, 'cause you could never leave him. You wish he could see that no one will love him like you do.

    General CommentOh please stick around

    Makes me think of Frances although this was probably written before she left.
