I can't seem to make you mine..
Skipin' all around all the time...
Flyin' around like a bee...
Hurtin' everything you see...

I tried everything I know
To make you wanna love me so
The only thing you do
Is try to put the hurt on me

Can't you see what you're doin' to me
You fill my heart with misery
With every breath, every step I take
I'm more in love with you...

I can't go on like this
A little bit of love, not one kiss
I gotta have your love everyday
A love that's real that will stay

Can't you see what you're doin' to me
You fill my heart with misery
With every breath, every step I take
I'm more in love with you...

I can't seem to make you mine
I can't seem to make you mine
Skipin' all around all the time
I can't seem to make you mine
Flyin' around like a bee
Hurtin' everything you see...
I can't seem to make you mine
I can't seem to make you mine
I can't seem to make you mine...
I can't seem to make you mine...

    General CommentIt's about having a lover who likes to cheat! By the way, be sure to hear the original version of this song by The Seeds!

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs by Garbage. Does anyone else notice how it kind of sounds like a heart beating? I don't know.

    Btw. I really love this song, but the only place I can seem to find it is Limewire. Is there any other place to get it?

    General CommentI love the ramones version but this one is by far the best, garbage made it sound so different and unique, her voice is amazing
