touch me...

      Just because you think I'm pretty
      doesn't mean I want you to touch me,
      it doesn't give you the right to touch me

      We tried to build a castle out of words
      but you refused to furnish it with deeds

      Just because you're ready to make up
      doesn't mean I want you to touch me,
      it doesn't make it alright to touch me

      Just because you're ready to move on now
      doesn't mean your kiss will heal me,
      it doesn't mean it makes me feel any better

      I'm not here,
      I'm not really here,
      I'm not really here at all.
      I can't believe...
      I can't really be here...

      Just because you wish you never hurt me
      doesn't make the memories go away,
      it doesn't make my heart ache any less

      I tried to share my world with you every way I know
      but you refused to believe a word I said

      Just because you're ready now
      doesn't mean I want you to touch me
      it doesn't mean your touch means anything at all

      I'm not here,
      I'm not really here,
      I'm not really here at all.
      I can't believe...
      I can't really be here...

      Just because I can show a smile
      doesn't mean I want anyone to touch me,
      it doesn't mean I'm ready to be touched at all -

      At all, ever again, no, please don't try...
