Jewel
Love Me, Just Leave Me Alone

I saw you standing there
You had gold dust in your pocket
And you combed barbed wire through your hair
You thought I didn`t notice
The skin on your teeth had a tear
To make me notice you started to shout
Then you and all your minions
Started flapping your tiny arms all about
They said you were a wise man
When did they teach wise men to pout?

I tried to forget you
But you tied bells to your name
They jingled every time I thought of you
Without shame
I tried to be unlovable
Why couldn`t you do the same?

CHORUS
What`s the matter?
Does your love need a home?
Alright then
Love me, just leave me alone

Your mother was a wolf bite
Your daddy was a cigarette
Your brother was a rosebud
Crossbred with a car wreck
Your sister was a stockbroker
But you ain`t nothing but a turtleneck

CHORUS

It`s not your little boy smile
It`s not your little boy name
It`s those big boy hands that are the ones to blame
I tried to be unlovable
Why couldn`t you do the same?

CHORUS
