Why, do you always do this to me?
Why, couldn't you just see through me?
How come, you act like this
Like you just don't care at all

Do you expect me to believe I was the only one to fall?
I could feel I could feel you near me, even though you're far away
I could feel I could feel you baby, why

It's not supposed to feel this way
I need you, I need you
More and more each day
It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you, I need you
Tell me, are you and me still together?
Tell me, do you think we could last forever?
Tell me, why

Hey, listen to what we're not saying
Let's play, a different game than what we're playing
Try, to look at me and really see my heart

Do you expect me to believe I'm gonna let us fall apart?
I could feel I could feel you near me, even when you're far away
I could feel I could feel you baby, why

It's not supposed to feel this way
I need you, I need you
More and more each day
It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you, I need you
Tell me, are you and me still together?
Tell me, you think we could last forever?
Tell me, why

So go and think about whatever you need to think about
Go ahead and dream about whatever you need to dream about
And come back to me when you know just how you feel, you feel
I could feel I could feel you near me, even though you're far away
I could feel I could feel you baby, why

It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you
More and more each day
It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you, I need you
Tell me

It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you
More and more each day
It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you, I need you
Tell me, are you and me still together?
Tell me, do you think we could last forever?
Tell me, why

    this ssong means to me:
    a girl that is crazy about a guy,but he doesnt treat her well, he gives mixed signals but she is so crazy about him that she still has hope.

    Hey, listen to what we're not saying
    Let's play, a different game than what we're playing
    Try, to look at me and really see my heart

    she wants to stop with the lines, the dating, she just wants him to say something real, to say what he really feels, to see into her heart.
    she wants him to care
    its like the story reapeats like he has done that before.

    this is incredibly similar to a story with me and a guy, that is still going on. that is why i love this song cuz it really means something to me

    so go on and think about whatever you need to think about.go ahead and dream about whaever you need to dream about. and come back to me when you know just how you feel,you feel.
    letting go of the person you love most...even it hurts you like hell...and wait for the time she come back to me(hopefully)..
