    Tell me what I wanna hear
    Whisper good things in my ear
    Make me feel like you care
    Even if just for this moment
    Stare me in my eyes
    Communicate sweet lies
    Make me believe them
    Even if just for a little while
    Tell me that I'm beautiful
    Nothing like your usual
    My own kind of special
    Even if it's just game
    I'll fall for it today
    Because right now ....
    My heart aches
    An excruciating kind of pain
    Caused by my yesterdays
    I wake to them
    They never leave
    Past troubles follow me to today
    I'll let you be my escape
    Give me your all
    I promise I won't fall
    I just wanna feel what it's like
    Before you take it away
    Just so I can say I felt it....
    Love....
    Just for a moment...
    Then I'll go back to numb
