"Love Me, Just Leave Me Alone" as written by and Jewel Kilcher....
I saw you standing there
Pride in your pocket
You combed barbed wire
Through your hair
You thought I didn't notice
The skin on
Your teeth had a tear
To make me notice
You started to shout
Then you and all your midgets
Started flapping your
Tiny arms all about
They said
You were a wise man
When did they teach
A wise man to pout?
It's not your little boy hands
It's not your little boy name
It's those big boy hands
That are the ones to blame
I tried to be unlovable
Why couldn't you do the same?
What's the matter?
Does your love need a home?
All right then, love me
Just leave me alone
Your mother was a wolf bite
Your daddy was a cigarette
Your brother was a rose bud
Crossbreed with a car wreck
Your sister was a stockbroker
But you ain't nothing
But a turtleneck
And you were hypnotized
Just standing there
In the middle of the street
You had iron butterflies as kisses
You had gold dust in your teeth
You used one eye as a hostage
The other one to stab your meat
I tried to forget you but
You tied bells to your name
And they'd jingle every time
I thought of you
Without shame
Your arms are like corset strings
I tried to be unlovable
Why couldn't you do the same?
What's the matter
Does your leave need a home?
All right then, love me
Just leave me alone
It's not your little boys hands
It's not your little boys name
It's those big boy hands
That are the ones to blame
Well, I tried to be unlovable
Why couldn't you do the same?
What's the matter?
Does your love need a home?
All right then, love me
Just leave me alone
What's the matter?
Does your love need a home
All right then, love me
Just leave me alone
Love me just leave me alone
Love me just leave me alone
Love me just leave me alone

    General CommentThis song shares sentiments similar to those in "Don't"--it's about trying to fall out of love.

    General CommentThis is written by a girl who's hurting really bad. She was hurting bad enough before but someone in her life who was supposed to help her is practically torturing her. She just wants him to leave her alone and let her move on with her life. Mabey she can find someoneelse who will love her like he couldn't.
