I don't want you to want me
But I want you to care
I don't want you to need me
But I need you when you're not there
I'm not sure what it is that keeps drawing me to you
I don't want you to love me
But I don't know what I want you to do

We fly around in circles, never touching down
And I stare with envy at the lives led on the ground
Cause no matter what we do we'll be among the clouds
Where the silence is deafening and my thoughts are way too loud

All of my friends told me
We could never last
It's not in me to argue but
I can't put you in the past
My head swims with all that we could be
I don't want you to love me
But I can't set you free

[Repeat Chorus]

I don't want you to love me
And I never did
All the times you tried I just
Ran away and hid
There's a wall between us that will never be torn down
So I don't want you to love me
But I still want you around

No, I don't want you to love me
But I want you around
