You’ve been pushing me down for months now
I’ve put things behind me, you know now
You know you need to put things behind you too
No matter how hard I try to set things straight
You keep bending them the wrong way again

You may want me but you can’t have me
You may think you’ve got it all figured out
You may not know just what you’re doing
May think you’re on the right road now
But the road turned and you drove forward
And you will whatever I do or say
But if you want me to let you back in my life
You’re gonna hafta stop driving me away

You’ve been pushing me down for months now
I’ve been living my life like I should now
You were never so hateful when I was in love
No matter how many times I wave the flag of peace
You keep stabbing and stabbing and stabbing and stabbing and . . .

You’ve justified your loss since I left you
You’ve killed every reason I would’ve had to stay
You may still love me through many tomorrows
But I love you less each passing day
I could have never meant to hurt you
But now I really don’t care if I do
The hate sure doesn’t live inside me
It’s got plenty of room in you

You may want me but you can’t have me
You may think you’ve got it all figured out
You may not know just what you’re doing
May think you’re on the right road now
But the road turned and you drove forward
And you will whatever I do or say
But if you want me to let you back in my life
You’re gonna hafta stop driving me away

You may want me but you can’t have me
You may think you’ve got it all figured out
You may not know just what you’re doing
May think you’re on the right road now
But the road turned and you drove forward
And you will whatever I do or say
But if you want me to let you back in my life
You’re gonna hafta stop driving me away
