Novocain (music and lyrics by Darla Whisenant)

I got what I wanted, lots of time to think
A chance to get away before you drove me insane
Now Im going crazy without you here with me
Careful what you wish for, you could end up like me
With a pocket full of memories

I wanted to be free, it never occurred to me
That you wouldnt be out there somewhere still in love with me
I held back from stopping you, the day you drove away
Bit my tongue in agony and fought the urge to say
I think Im still in love with you

Its too late now, I got what I wanted and so did you
And it wasnt me
I dont think I can stand the pain
Of going through this healing thing
Pump me up with Novocain
I dont wanna feel anything

It was all about me and all I aspired to be
I remember sighing, rolling eyes when you were needing me
Now I would give anything to have been there for you
Its hard to find the meaning in anything I do
My dreams begin and end with you

Its too late now, I got what I wanted and so did you
And it wasnt me
I dont think I can stand the pain
Of going through this healing thing
Pump me up with Novocain
I dont wanna feel anything
Pump me up with Novocain
I dont wanna feel anything

So I lied
When I said I didnt want you
I was dealing with my pride
And now Im horrified
I got what I wanted

Pump me up with Novocain
I dont wanna feel anything

Pump me up with Novocain
I dont wanna feel anything
