Love Me Just Leave Me Alone by Jewel Kilcher *** The lyrics in parentheses are from the acoustic solo version I saw you standing there You had gold dust in your pocket (Someone's brain popped as) You combed barbed wire through your hair You thought I didn't notice The skin on your teeth had a tear To make me notice you started to shout Then you and all your midgits/minions (Then you and your munchkins) Started flapping your tiny arms all about They said you were the wise man When did they teach wise men to pout? I tried to forget you But you tied bells to your name They jingle everytime I thought of you Without shame I tried to be unlovable (I'm trying to be unlovable) Why couldn't you do the same? What's the matter? Did you love need a home? Alright then Love me just leave me alone (Love me just leave me alone) (You thought all the curiosity...) Your mother was a wolf bite Your daddy was a cigarette Your brother was a rosebud Crossbred with a car wreck Your sister was a stockbroker But you - you ain't nothing but a turtleneck You were standing there hypnotized In the middle of the street You had iron butterflies as kisses You had gold dust in your teeth You use one eye as a hostage The other eye to stab your own meat But your mind is a circle But it clings to straight lines Your arms are like corset strings They only know how to find Linens are adorable Why don't you try it sometime What's the matter Did your love need a home? Alright then Love me just leave me alone It's not your little boy's mind It's not your little boy's mind It's those big boy hands when I'm no longer there Well, I'm trying to be unlovable Why couldn't you do the same? What's the matter? Did your love need a home? ALright then Love me just leave me alone What's the matter? Did your love need a home? Alright then Love me just leave me alone Love me just leave me alone Love me just leave me alone
