Lyrics

(Source: I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got)

I'm full of good intentions,
Like I never was before.
It's too late for prevention,
But I don't think it's too late for the cure.
So you call in your minions,
See what you can find.
Night time or morning,
These hands are sticky, but I don't mind.
Why must you always be around?
Why can't you just leave it be?
It's done nothing so far but destroy my life.
You cause as much sorrow dead
As you did when you were alive.
I never said I was tough;
That was everyone else.
So you're a fool to attack me
For the image that you built yourself.
It just sounds more vicious
Than I actually mean.
I really am soft & tender & sweet.
Why must you always be around? (La la la la.)
Why can't you just leave me be?
You've done nothing so far but destroy my life.
You cause as much sorrow dead
As you did when you were alive.
Why must you always be around? (La la la la.)
Why can't you just leave me be?
You've done nothing so far but destroy my life.
You cause as much sorrow dead
As you did when you were alive.
