I've been searching for so long
Now the search party is gone
Won't somebody tell me what the hell went wrong
We started out so strong

I never wanted to hurt you
I didn't plan to desert you
I couldn't possibly express how much I care

So, turn your back on me
Come on, turn your back on me
To survive, turn your back on me
We're the same as far as I can see
So, come on, turn your back on me

If I could I would stand outside myself
And pretend that I was looking back at somebody else
If I could do it again would I merely defend it all to the end?
Or do the ends justify themselves?

I never wanted to hurt you
I didn't plan to desert you
I couldn't possibly express how much I care

So, turn your back on me
Come on, turn your back on me
To survive, turn your back on me
We're the same as far as I can see
So, come on, turn your back on me.
