Why can't you see I'm just no good at these things?
I want to love you like the man I'm supposed to be.
But you don't mean these conversations get boring
The thick, the thin, the workings like consistency

You turn and ask me
Why don't you hold me baby, oh oh baby
My cool is melting away in the making
Oh miss, you can't see me like this

Helpless helpless
What makes my lonely heart feel like this?
Helpless, I'm helpless when it comes to you

Leave me alone. I know I'm not making sense
But I know I can't let you come any closer
It's my security, it's my self-offense
I keep on doing all this over and over

You turn and ask me,
Just get to know me baby, oh oh baby
I turn away and pretend that I'm doing just fine
But you're inside my mind
And I'm

Helpless helpless
What makes my lonely heart feel like this?
Helpless, I'm helpless when it comes to you

I'm caught in the way we talk,
I'm never good enough
Your love's like a wrecking ball and I don't want to break apart
Break apart, oh oh oh ohhh

Helpless helpless
What makes my wounded heart feel like this?
Helpless, I'm helpless when it comes to you
[X2]
When it comes to you...
