lyrics

There are so many things that I'm longing to say
From the morning to the night, I hold them at bay
But I don't make a move, I live in the gray
Just hoping that they'll find their way to you

(Oh) I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
Where'd you get my number
Where'd You get my number
(Oh) I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
Where'd you get my number
Where'd You get my number

Same old story that it hurts just to be next to you
so move and inch or two from me
Getting so bad that I can't even look at you
and all the things you do
Well I could be
better off than the way I'm living
if I'll ever learn to simply speak

You wake up in your bed
You get on with your life
You don't think about my struggles, my pain and my strife
and if you do, I cannot help but deny
everything I mean to say to you

(Oh) I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
Where'd you get my number
Where'd You get my number
(Oh) I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
Where'd you get my number
Where'd You get my number

Same old story that it hurts just to be next to you
so move and inch or two from me
Getting so bad that I can't even look at you
and all the things you do
Well I could be
better off than the way I'm living
if I'll ever learn to simply speak

In my silence,
al the volumes left unread
are starting to travel to the world outside my head
Out side my head

(Oh) I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
Where'd you get my number
Where'd You get my number
(Oh) I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
I'm trying, won't you leave me alone
Where'd you get my number
Where'd You get my number
Same old story that it hurts just to be next to you
so move and inch or two from me
Getting so bad that I can't even look at you
and all the things you do
Well I could be
Same old story that it hurts just to be next to you
so move and inch or two from me
Getting so bad that I can't even look at you
and all the things you do
Well I could be
better off than the way I'm living
if I'll ever learn to simply speak
