I never wanted to be found...
From the very first time you laid eyes on me,
your eyes went wide like you found a pirate’s buried treasure.
I’m still trying to understand the reason behind your affinity.
Your love for me was something that words could not measure.
You dropped everything you had for me,
I sat in your presence wishing that you would leave me alone.
I never loved you, can’t you see?
Make me say it, I will engrave my words on your tombstone:
I never wanted to be found.
Let me be like a City of Gold,
Hidden thirty feet in the ground.
I’d be happier as a myth of old,
That natives like to spread around.
So stop wasting your time, stop looking for gold in Colorado,
I never wanted to be found,
So stop searching for me, like you’re looking for El Dorado,
Hidden thirty feet in the ground.
I’d be happier as a myth of old,
That natives like to spread around.

I never wanted to be found.
I never wanted to be found.
I never wanted to be found.
