"Why do I need you?"

Painful To Love by me

I'm taking a moment
To address a few concerns
I have been having
About the state that I'm in.

I've held you through heartbreak,
When you've been frozen or been burned
And sometimes I know why,
But there are other times when

I don't see the appreciation,
The adoration
In your eyes.
Sometimes I feel your heart's gone blank, that
It's an affectation.
Don't tell me I'm blind.

Why do I need you
When you're so damn painful to love?
Why do I dream of you
When it's always a nightmare,
Always a nightmare?

Why do I feel you
Like you're under my skin,
Breaking my soul from within?
Why do I need you
When you're so damn painful to love?

Good God, I'm in too deep.
I've lost all hope of getting out.
I have been digging
This hole with you for too long.

Used to be so sure we'd make it,
And now I'm lying in a pool of doubt
And sometimes I know why,
But there are others when I think we belong.

When I don't hear the words of anger,
Spelling danger
For our love.
But then you make me feel like a stranger,
Then there's nothing stranger
Than our love.

Why do I need you
When you're so damn painful to love?
Why do I dream of you
When it's always a nightmare,
Always a nightmare?

Why do I feel you
Like you're under my skin,
Breaking my soul from within?
Why do I need you
When you're so damn painful to love?

I guess you make me feel wonderful,
Sometimes you make me spectacular.
Like there's a place in this world
For me.

But then you'll make me feel pitiful,
Sometimes it seems it's a ritual
For you to pick me up and drop me down
On my knees.

The last wound's just healed
By the time you break me apart again.
You've fractured my will,
And still
I need you.

Why do I need you
When you're so damn painful to love?
Why do I dream of you
When it's always a nightmare,
Always a nightmare,
Always a nightmare,
Always a nightmare...

Why do I feel you
Like you're under my skin,
Breaking my soul from within?
How do I break free again
From this love that we're in?

Why do I need you
When you're so damn painful to love?

Why do I need you
When you're so damn painful to love?
