All I see
Lying there in front of me
Maybe we were here before
I just didn't wanna believe
But in all that time we never talked
You wrote it down so I couldn't ignore it

This is the way you want it to be
This is the way you want it to be
Oh, this is the way you want it to be
Guess you don't want me

We had love
Always thought it would be enough
Oh, but then it goes away
But I don't really wanna give up

It feels like hell to let you walk
Bet it all down but I couldn't afford it

This is the way you want it to be
This is the way you want it to be
Oh, this is the way you want it to be
Guess you don't want me

And I never really said it before
But I really should have given you so much more

But this is the way you want it to be
This is the way you want it to be
Oh, this is the way you want it to be
Guess you don't want me
Guess you don't want me
No

Guess you don't want me
Yeah, you don't want
Guess you don't want
