Unwanted - Avril Lavigne

All I did was walk over
Start off by shaking your hands
That's how it went
I had a smile on my face and I sat up straight
Oh yeah yeah
I wanted to know you
I wanted to show you

[chorus]
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
You don't want me there
You just shut me out
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
If you had your way
You'd just shut me up
Make me go away

(so unwanted)
No, I just don't understand why
You won't talk to me
It hurts, I'm so unwanted for nothing
Don't talk words against me
I wanted to know you
I wanted to show you

[chorus]
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
You don't want me there
You just shut me out
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
If you had you're way
You'd just shut me up
Make me go away
Make me go away yeah yeah yeah

I tried to be long
It didn't seem wrong
My head aches
Its been so long
I'll write this song
If that's what it takes
Eeeh yeah yeah ehh yeah ehh ehh

[chorus]
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
You don't want me there
You just shut me out
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
If you had your way
You'd just shut me up
Make me go away

You don't know me
Don't ignore me
You don't want me there
You just shut me out
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
If you had your way
You'd just shut me up
Make me go away

Make me go away yeah yeah yeah yeah

Make me go awAAAAAYYYY

    I think unwanted means... The guy i like never gave me a chance. He hated me from the beginning. But i somehow fell in love with him. I felt like he was the one. I tried to hate him. But everytime i saw his beautiful smile and him just being him made me hypnotized. No matter what i try everytime i see him i want him more and more. It hurts.

    This song is kinda emotic because it tells about being left out alone
    in this cruel world. I really like Avie and all her songs!!!
