I could spend my life pursuing you
Giving you gifts and lending you shoulders to cry on
But I know the sad truth about us two
That you will never notice me this early dawn

I know better, now, than to chase dreams
In the end you are one more ghostly bit of memory
You're so much less solid than it seems
So weak you will never notice this is from me

No matter if I sign it in my own ink
There's not a letter I could right, not any more,
That would ever make you think
To notice, oh you will never notice, me outside your door

I would spend my life pursuing you
Sharing your hopes and giving you a bed to sleep in
But I know the sad truth about you
That you will never notice me this early evenin'

For just one look, one fleeting touch
To tell me that everything is, that I have done all right
For me to spend eternity is not too much
Alas you will never notice me waiting 'neath the light

Despite the endless stock of lies
And in spite of all the suffering brought into my life
I always did fall for the hero who dies
Except you will never notice me, only your own knife

I should spend my life pursuing you
And I will, in my own sad twisted and broken down way
But I know the sad truth, as you do
That you will never notice me, even at your grave this day
