Lyrics

I just wanna be lost
In a crowded room
So I don't have to hear
Your point of view
You know I don't care
About what you say
And it's the way
You say it too

So why did you come to me
When you knew that you just didn't believe?
What did you expect to get from telling me
You don't understand anything
Or how I am?

I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved by you
I wanna be loved
I just wanna be loved
Wanna be loved

I just want you to stay
Away from me
With all your lies
I just don't believe

So why did you come to me
When you knew that you just didn't believe?
What did you expect to get from telling me
You don't understand anything
Or how I am?

You don't understand
You don't understand
You don't understand
