We made your made your overtures
When you were show an orotund mutt
And I was still a dew on petals
Rather than a moribund slut
My love wrecked you
You packed to twirl your skirt at the palace
It hurt more than it ought to hurt
I went to work to cultivate a callus

[Hook]
And now I'm hard, too hard to know
I don't cry when I'm sad anymore, no no
Tears calcify in my [?]
Fears go inside [?]

How can I ask anyone to love me
When all I do is beg to be left alone?

Oh, when I try to love
I can save the same man in the same bed in the same city
But not in the same room, it's a pity, but
Oh, it never bothered me before
Not 'til this guy, what a guy, oh God what a good guy
And I can't even enjoy him

[Hook]

How can I ask anyone to love me
When all I do is beg to be left
When all I do is beg to be left
When all I do is beg to be left alone
Alone, alone

My ills are articulate
My woes are granular
The ants weigh more than the elephants
Nothing, nothing is manageable
So couldn't we validictories?
I could see you enjoy that
Shut it and forget my number

[Hook]

How can I ask anyone to love me
When all I do is beg to be left
When all I do is beg to be left
When all I do is beg to be left alone
