I Don't Know What To Tell You


You're smothering, i'm struggling
wanting to be anywhere around you
every move I make you're watching
all day you sit around plotting
seems you got some questions, please ask
everytime i walk in, there's a problem
what you doing this for
when you know i'm all yours

Your actions can't be justified
everyone in life have fantasized
wanting something they can't have
and once they do, they'll leave for something new
see, it's all about the challenge, but, i'm not like that
and if you feel you can not trust me, I'm packing my bags
will you be satisfied then?
I don't know what else to tell you

it's going to take for you to trust me to keep my love
sometimes i am not sure why I put up with you at all
everyday you dealing with these insecurities
what you don't understand is the severity
continually, pushes me away

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
