something isn't right,
I'm losing faith in everything I know,
what do I know?

You told me I should fight,
not be self destructive thinking I should go,
what do i know?

Stay away from me!
I need you too badly,
and it's tearing me apart!
Won't you stay a part of me?

I need you too badly,
I need you too badly,
I need you too badly.

I wrote this song tonight,
just to feel like I was not alone,
But I am alone.
I don't have the right to ask for your
forgiveness on the phone,
Cause I am alone.

Stay away from me!
I need you too badly,
and it's tearing me apart!
Won't you stay a part of me?

I need you too badly,
I need you too badly,
I need you too badly.

This feelings never ending,
and I can't keep pretending,
that it's you I want,
that it's you.
I'm not okay,
I'm not okay.

Stay away from me!
I need you too badly,
and it's tearing me apart!
Won't you stay a part of me?

I need you too badly
I need you too badly
I need you too badly

    General Commentthese lyrics really jump out at me. It's about someone thinking they're not good enough, knowing that they're too needy. They love someone so much and they're so lonely, but they know that they can never be with this person so they're asking for distance because it's too hard to be with them without they're heart breaking. They hate that feeling of wanting what they can't have - with just one look it tears them apart.

    I think the other person perhaps wants them to fight, (maybe they feel that the relationship could work)
    "You told me I should fight,
    not be self destructive thinking I should go,
    what do i know? "

    this paragraph makes me think the other person wants to be with them, but because of personal issues and fears the they can never be together even though they're dying inside.

    I could be completely off track with this one and letting personal issues cloud my judgement but it's just my personal opinion of this song and what it says to me through these lyrics. I would be nice to hear somebody else's interpretations though.
