You want to be loved
But I am unavailable
I no longer have it in me
To devote myself

Don't get too close
Beneath this tough skin
I'm broken inside
I don't feel anymore

I'm sorry, you're late
It isn't you, but it's that...
I've been betrayed before
And I haven't recovered

I'm sorry that you love me
Because I feel numb
It isn't you, but it's that...
Love I no longer know

So go ahead and leave
It's too dark here where I am
You deserve more
Leave me here to heal
