I tried to tell you
Why you should listen to my song
You told me that you heard me
And that you'd learn to use the phone

I told you that I was really scared
I may not last
I said I was desperate
An emergency was coming fast

Do you really want to let me be the desperate one?
I thought you were my friend

I waited for the blood you
Promised me that you would let
In my soul I prayed
That you would never forget

You said to sign my life away
To your command
And now I can't describe
How little I understand

Do you really want to let me be the desperate one?
I thought you were my friend

Do you really want to let me be
Do you really want to let me see the Desperate One?

Do you really want to let me be the desperate one?

I thought you were my friend
I thought it was 'till the end
Until the end of time
