I tell You how I feel, but you don't care 
I say tell me the truth, but you don't dare 
You say love is a hell you cannot bear 
And I say gimmie mine back and then go there-for all I care 

I got my feet on the ground and I don't go to sleep to dream 
You got your head in the clouds and you're not at all what you seem 
This mind, this body, and this voice cannot be stifled by you deviant ways 
So don't forget what I told you, don't come around, I got my own hell to raise 

I have never been so insulted in all my life 
I could swallow the seas to wash down all this pride 
First you run like a fool to be at my side 
And now you run like a fool, but you just run to hide, and I can't abide 

I got my feet on the ground and I don't go to sleep to dream 
You got your head in the clouds and you're not at all what you seem 
This mind, this body, and this voice cannot be stifled by your deviant ways 
So don't forget what I told you, I got my own hell to raise 

Don't make it a big deal, don't be so sensitive 
We're not playing a game anymore; you don't have to be so defensive 
Don't you plead me your case, don't bother to explain 
Don't even show me your face, 'cuz it's a crying shame 
Just go back to the rock from under which you came 
Take the sorrows you gave and all the staked you claim- 
And don't forget the blame 

I got my feet on the ground, and I don't go to sleep to dream 
You got your head in the clouds and you're not at all what you seem 
This mind, this body, and this voice cannot be stifled by your deviant ways 
So don't forget what I told you, don't come around, I got my own hell to raise
