WANTED

What have I eaten?
I feel sick
I feel used as a star does to a wish
And I’m sweating too
I’m betting you know why
I’m about to lie

And say I don’t want you anymore
I don’t want what was never in store
I want a new pull, I want a new deck of cards
I want something other than my full heart
I want to be wanted

Where have I been?
I feel lost
I feel distant as hell does to a god
And I’m crumbling too
I’m doubled over thinking of you tonight
I wish I didn’t have to lie

And say I don’t want you anymore
I don’t want what was never in store
I want a new pull, I want a new deck of cards
I want something other than my full heart
I want to be wanted

I’ve heard your best words for years, but your voice escapes my memory
Perhaps somewhere inside I know you’re wrong for me
But a bridge needs water to go across
A vulture survives on the desert’s loss
And so thrives my need to be wanted by you
What have I put myself through?

I’m so hot
And I’m so bothered
How badly I wish you were my children’s mother some day
It pains me so to lie, to say

I don’t want you anymore
I don’t want what was never in store
I want a new pull, I want a new deck of cards
I want something other than my full heart
I want to be wanted
