A personal note from the artist: I have brown hair, wavy eyes and make a point of not taking myself too seriously.

She might not be the homecoming queen, and you won't find her picture in Vogue Magazine.
Sometimes she's altogether, it's easy to see.
But then she's much more uncertain than I'll ever be.

Now she says she don't love me.
I'm just in her hair.
She wants to run from me but she doesn't know where.

I love her to pieces eternally.
And I'll die if she doesn't come back to me.

Well now lately she's been angry without a mean word to say.
She don't know what she wants but she wants it yesterday.
She's let a lack of direction start driving her mad.
She thinks her life's been worthless and it makes it her so sad.

If she'd let me I'd tell her it isn't so tough.
Everybody feels sometimes that their life ain't good enough.
We all cry when we feel that emptiness don't you see.
And I cry 'cause I know you won't come back to me.

I know I can be selfish and sometimes unkind
I never ask you about what's on your mind.
Now I beg you to stay, you say you must be free.

I'm so lonely if only you'd come back to me.
I'm so lonely if only you'd come back to me.
