Third Eye Blind - Why Can't You Be

"Why can't you be the part of me that's missing?
Instead of leaving me for some other,
Said we're perfect for each other,
And I know we won't go spend our lives alone.

Can we, just leave it be?
And we can live, our lives, separately.
Could you forget, what happens to you, you and me?
When we're dead, and we'll be dead, we'll have eternity.
And I will spend it all, missing you, seeing you with me.
So all of them are lying.
I will always be.

Why can't you be thinking a little deeper into me?
Like JD Salinger.
Why do i challenge her,
In all these surface ways that you displease?
Why can't you be a little more at ease?

Why can't you be like a hand rolled cigarette? I'm not joking.
This masochistic self pity of smoking and this hitty-ditty.
I keep provoking you to leave me.

And she said,
Why can't you be,
Like a candle I can snuff?
You're still a diamond in the rough.
And I swear to God,
I've had enough.

How can I,
Call your bluff?
