It Burns – Lyrics

I tried to find the words to say
After you told me you loved me (loved me)
You wanted more from me
But a blank stare is what you see
I can’t promise you anything

And I am breaking through,
And I’m reaching out for you,
But it burns — but it burns when you look me in the eyes.
You want what I can’t give —
Didn’t mean to lead you on
But it burns — but it burns when you look me in the eyes.

Your eyes…
Stare at me with wonder
They want more of me and I can’t give it away! No!
I remember when I left you there;
You were cold, and you were alone —
— Just like my heart of stone!

And I am breaking through,
And I’m reaching out for you,
But it burns — but it burns when you look me in the eyes.
You want what I can’t give —
Didn’t mean to lead you on
But it burns — but it burns when you look me in the eyes.

You’re so pitiful in every way!
You’re so pitiful in every way!
You’re so pitiful in every way!
