Push Me Away - American Hi-Fi

she hasn't eaten in days
her family wonders about her ways
but they don't understand
so they try the best they can
to push it all away

she hasn't spoken in days
she lost a job that never pays
and she tries to understand
why she never found a man
that didn't push her away

she says everybody puts their faith
in someone they cannot see
yet i'm standing right here
you won't believe in me
tell me what it takes
so i don't feel fake
and i try to be good for goodness sake
all i ask from you is please don't push me away

and i don't know what they've said to you
while some of it just may be true
i need some time i'll be fine
don't push me away

[her mother was never there,
and her father never cared]
and the children understand
that even they have their demands
that just get pushed away

she hasn't smiled in 30 days
yeah
since her father flew away
when she tries to understand
why he couldnt be a man
they tell her that each day

she says everybody puts their faith
in someone they cannot see
yet i'm standing right here
you won't believe in me
tell me what it takes
so i don't feel fake
and i try to be good for goodness sake
all i ask from you is please don't push me away

and i don't know what they've said to you
while some of it just may be true
i need some time i'll be fine
don't push me away

go ahead do what you may
i got nothing to say
you said it all before
on your way out the door
i can't keep losing you
i can't keep going through
the same thing everyday
go ahead, push me away

and i don't know what they've said to you
while some of it just may be true
i need some time i'll be fine
don't push me away
