Lyrics
Lately I've been feeling
A little bit neglected.
When it comes to your ex-boyfriends,
Well, I guess I'm overprotective.
But it's nothing personal
I just wanted you to tell me that you
Care.

Lately I've been thinking 'bout
Stickin' my hand in a toaster.
I never asked to take a ride
On this emotional roller-coaster.
It's you that I want,
And lately it feels like you're not there.

Lately I've been contemplating
Jumping in the ocean.
Sometimes even Spock would show
A little more emotion!
Do you still love me now
As much as you loved me yesterday?

I try to let it out
I *****, cry, moan, whine, scream and
Shout today,
But the wall wouldn't listen to me!
Why wouldn't it listen to me?
I'm sick of always cryin'
I don't want to be sick of trying,
But you've gotta want me too.

Lately I've been hoping for
A little bit of affection.
Sometimes I wish that you had came
With your own set of directions.
I guess it's not that easy,
But I hope that you still love me anyway.

Lately I've been thinkin' 'bout
Takin' a vow of silence,
I've never seen a monk result
In any acts of violence.
Or, maybe I'll just cry
And hope you come around again today.

I try to let it out
I *****, cry, moan, whine, scream and
Shout today,
But the wall wouldn't listen to me!
Why wouldn't it listen to me?
I'm sick of always cryin'
I don't want to be sick of trying,
But you've gotta want me too.
