Talk to me, I’m going crazy. Talk to me, I’m going insane. You talk to me And then I explode. You talk to me, I rocket into space Your absence Drills a wire through my heart. Your presence Shoots adrenaline through my veins. I’m useless, ain’t I?
Now you’re gone It’s a cliche that I even write this “I never thought you’d leave” Oh, someone please put an R&B beat to this. Now that it’s all vacant Are you telling me this doesn’t hurt you?
