"Live the life you've dreamed."
-Henry David Thoreau

You pull that trigger on me
As I beg you please don’t make a scene
Even when it’s just you and me
Please don’t pull that trigger on me
Or I’ll be sure to make a scene

I don’t need your sympathy
If I need anything I need you to leave
Get out of my head
Oh, before I drop dead

Your face burns deep in my brain
And it won’t come out as if it’s a stain
I don’t know what’s wrong with me
But I can’t stop thinking about you
And I don’t know what to do


I thought you understood me
All those times you were being so sweet
Did you just feel sorry for me
‘Cause I just can’t seem to see
Why you’d waste your time on me


You left me in this tundra
How could I ever think that this could be love
Sure you taught me a fair share of things
But you gave this pain
That I sure didn’t need

‘Cause I never needed your sympathy
I shouldn’t have said a thing, allowed you to leave
Get out of my head
Oh, before I drop dead
