You say I only hear what I want to. 
You say I talk so all the time so. 

And I thought what I felt was simple, 
And I thought that I don't belong, 
And now that I am leaving, 
Now I know that I did something wrong 'cause I missed you. 
Yeah, I missed you. 

And you say I only hear what I want to: 
I don't listen hard, 
I don't pay attention to the distance that you're running 
Or to anyone, anywhere, 
I don't understand if you really care, 
I'm only hearing negative: no, no, no. 

So I turned the radio on, I turned the radio up, 
And this woman was singing my song: 
The lover's in love, and the other's run away, 
The lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay. 

Some of us hover when we weep for the other who was 
Dying since the day they were born. 
Well, this is not that: 
I think that I'm throwing but I'm thrown. 

And I thought I'd live forever, but now I'm not so sure. 

You try to tell me that I'm clever, 
But that won't take me anyhow, or anywhere with you. 

You said that I was naive, 
And I thought that I was strong. 
I thought, "hey I can leave, I can leave." 
But now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you. 

You said, "I caught you 'cause I want you and one day I'll let you go." 
You try to give away a keeper, or keep me 'cause you know 
You're just scared to lose. 
And you say, "Stay." 

You say I only hear what I want to.
