Do you like me?
Check yes or no.
I’m hoping the answer is yes
Because I can’t take another blow
Self-esteem is shot
And every time I’m around you
My stomach ties in a knot.
You’re the type I thought I’d never get
Just say yes already
So we can make this thing legit
I kind of like that
It sounds like a lullaby
I’m drifting and it seems as if you are shifting further and further from me
Is it something I said or something I did?
What did I do for you to make me feel any less than I felt before?
You’re not answering me!
Oh, so are we playing Peek-a-boo?
Now you see me
Now you don’t
Which one is it?
Because you can’t have both.
When I saw you
You had this shine.
I was determined to make you mine.
Where I was weak
I was seeking for you to make me complete.
All I ever wanted was for you to like me.
Maybe because I didn’t like myself.
From the inside out
I saw nothing valuable of my existence.
Blind, deaf, and mute.
What’s left of me?
I have no use.
If you say I can see, hear, and talk
I’ll believe every word
Simply because you’ve got something that I don’t
