lyrics

YOU TOLD ME TO EXPLORE MYSELF
YOU OPENED THE DOOR TO SOME WHERE ELSE
WHERE PEOPLE CAN MEET THEIR SOULS
I LOVE THE LIGHT THAT YOU HAVE SHOWN
I TURNED YOU DOWN I TOLD YOU NO SAID
MY SOUL IS MINE AND HAD TO REMAIN HIDDEN
YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO GET IT AND STRANGLE IT
AND I TREATED YOU LIKE SHIT

CAN'T YOU SEE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU HEAR ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU LOVE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU WANT ME? NO.

EVEN IF I WAS I'D NEVER TELL NOT ANYONE
AS FOR THE ONE I LOVE MAN THOSE ARE MY THOUGHTS
I OFTEN WONDER WHAT WOULD HAVE BECOME OF US
IF I'D TOLD YOU YES

CAN'T YOU SEE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU HEAR ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU LOVE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU WANT ME? NO.

I REALIZE NOW THAT MY BODIES IN A SOUND-PROOF CASE
WHERE NO ONE CAN HEAR ME
MY BRAIN LIKE ANYONE ELSE'S CONTROLS MY ACTIONS
BUT MINES MORE LIKE MY PROTECTOR FROM THE WORLDS FUCKING ASSES

CAN'T YOU SEE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU HEAR ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU LOVE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU WANT ME? NO.

MY TONGUE WORKS LIKE A MACHINE THAT SCRAMBLES UP MY
SENTENCES WHEN I'M TALKING TO SOMEONE
PROTECTING ME FROM THEM SEEING MY "REAL ONE"
WHICH I'M AFRAID THEY DON'T HAVE THE CAPACITY TO LOVE

CAN'T YOU SEE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU HEAR ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU LOVE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU WANT ME? NO.

CAN'T YOU SEE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU HEAR ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU LOVE ME? NO.
CAN'T YOU WANT ME? NO.
