I know it's wrong but what can I do?
Can't help myself whenever I see you
I have these thoughts and I want to confess
I want to get it off my chest
But nobody's listening, nobody's listening

What more can we say when we've said it all?
I lost my nerve and the way with all
You see right through me when you look in my eyes
And I try to apologize
But nobody's listening, nobody's listening

It's been so long since I've seen you
I've found another to cling to
Put me out of my misery
'Cause I can't help myself anymore
I've become my own worst enemy

You say it's weakness and I can't resist
A kiss on the cheek and a slap on my wrist
In a blink of an eye it all disappears
And again I've brought you to tears
But nobody's listening, nobody's listening

When every time I open my mouth
Another page of the book torn out
Put me out of my misery
'Cause I can't help myself anymore
I've become my own worst enemy
(Put me out of my misery)
Don't wanna change it

The days are long and the nights go slow
And the clouds roll in and the cold winds blow
And I wanna go home, I wanna be there with you
And I know that you're lonely and you need me too

And I wish I could touch you
I wanna reach out and touch you
If I could reach out and touch you
Put me out of my misery
'Cause I can't help myself anymore
I've become my own worst enemy

You're so familiar like I've seen you before
My eyes pop out and my jaw hits the floor
I'm on my knees, I can't take anymore
I've got to get you out of my memory
Put me out of my misery
