"You Don't See Me" as written by Adam Duritz, Harry Elfont, Deborah Kaplan, Dee Dee Gipson, David Gibbs, Jason Falkner, Kenneth B Edmonds, Jane Wiedlin and Steven J Hurley....
This is the place where I sit
This is the part where I love you too much
This is as hard as it gets
'Cause I'm getting tired of pretending I'm tough

I'm here if you want me
I'm yours, you can hold me
I'm empty and achin'
And tumblin' and breakin'

'Cause you don't see me
And you don't need me
And you don't love me
The way I wish you would
The way I know you could

I dream a world where you understand
That I dream a million sleepless nights
Well I dream a fire when you're touching my hand
But it twists into smoke when I turn on the lights

I'm speechless and faded
It's too complicated
Is this how the book ends,
Nothing but good friends?

'Cause you don't see me
And you don't need me
And you don't love me
The way I wish you would

The way I wish you would
This is the place in my heart
This is the place where I'm falling apart
Isn't this just where we met
And is this the last chance that I'll ever get

I wish I was lonely
Instead of just only
Crystal and see-through
And not enough to you

'Cause you don't see me
And you don't need me
And you don't love me
The way I wish you would

'Cause you don't see me
And you don't need me
And you don't love me
The way I wish you would
The way I know you could

    General Commentdoesnt Letters to Cleo do the songs for josie and the pussycats? just something i've heard somewhere. anyway this is a great song. it touches me so deeply. i have this male friend and i really "ove him "is this how the book ends? nothing but true friends?" sooo true. it's like how you can love someone so much and know they don't see you for what you're worth.

    General Commentthe chorus is the prettiest. the lyrics are pretty obvious though. its beautiful. they shoulda been a real band. not the people who played 'josie and the pussycats' but the ones who sang their voices n stuff ehe. yeah lol.

    General CommentI think that if these girls had been a real band they would have been so successful. When i saw the film 'Jodie And The Pussycats' i just had to get the soundtrack to it because it's absolutely brilliant...even better than the film which i also loved.
    'You Don't See Me' is such a lovely song. For me it's about a girl wanting someone so badly but the other person doesn't return her feelings. The words are pretty, if not just a little bit cliche, and it's all just sweet.
