I don't always know what I'm talking about I don't understand what I feel until these words come stumbling tumbling out and it's too late to shield my pride It only takes a look in your eyes Take it from me Don't you think I ought to know Don't you remember I'm the one who told you over and over and over again You're wasting your time Please let me be Here is my heart Take it from me (You see what I mean?) Are you wearing me down Are you wearing me thin or is it just the mood I'm in Are you wearing me down Are you wearing me thin or is it just the mood I'm in Keep wearing me down Keep wearing me thin I like this mood I'm in
We all watched Cinderella ride into the sun with that slipper on her foot, knowing she was the only one I can't help but wonder a few years down the line if she strolled around her castle with this thought on her mind CHORUS: I don't wanna be in a house that's not home I'd rather be free if I have to be alone I don't wanna be somebody else or wake up to find I've lost myself I don't wanna be in a house that's not home A couple babies later, did she still catch his eye and did he still leave her breathless just by passing by Did she ever stop to wonder if that old shoe still fit Did she place it on her foot and watch it shatter into bits Did she call her fairy godmother to pick her up off the floor Did her happily ever after leave her longing for before CHORUS

I lie in my bed and thoughts of you fill my head I'm certain I'd placed those behind me but night after night, there you are, when I close my eyes I need someone to remind me There'll be no looking back and no reminiscing There is no time to waste on waiting and wishing And so you're haunting me Who said I'd want to be haunted by someone like you I toss and I turn and I wonder about you hoping one day I'll learn to function without you and then, you're close to me where you're supposed to be No - it cannot be true May I please request that I be left alone with my broken heart Don't keep me awake for old time's sake Just who do you think you are Get out of my dreams I wish you'd desert me for to me it seems that you have hurt me enough to last my whole life through As the cow jumps over the moon, I count sheep but I just can't sleep til I'm over you
