you see an image
of how i'm supposed to be
but i still wonder
is that really me?

i don't know what to do
or how i should act
i can't prove my love
and that's a fact

you don't wanna control me
you've told me before
but it leaves me empty
like an apple with no core

i need your love
and to be as one
you say i've hurt you
but what is it i have done?

i wanna hold you
and tell you it'll be ok
but i start to choke
and forget what to say

you tell me i'm hurting you
only i can't see
how i took ur trust 
away from me

i'm slowly lettin' you
slip away
i wish i could grab you
and make u stay

when you're mad at me
i feel i can't go on
i'm weak and sad
never will i be strong

i can't let myself lose you
i'll shrivel up and die
my eyes will pour with tears
more than they will ever cry

i'm not askin' for your life
or every minute of your time
i just want you to believe me
is that such a crime???
