    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you mean to me
    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you cannot see

    You're hiding from feelings, searching for more
    Sharing and hoping, untouched for so long
    Our lives still change from the way that we were
    And now I'll tell you something I think you should know
    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you mean to me
    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you cannot see

    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you mean to me
    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you cannot see

    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you mean to me
    Confusion
    Confusion
    Confusion

    You cause me confusion, you told me you cared
    He's calling these changes that last to the end
    Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies
    The past is your present, the future is mine
    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you mean to me
    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you cannot see

    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you mean to me
    You just can't believe me
    When I show you what you cannot see

    You tell me you need me, I'll make it this time
    The thread won't divide us, the sensation survives
    I was sure that I told you it was good from the face
    You've caused me some problems, you've taken my place

    Why can't you see what you mean to me?

    Why can't you see, why can't you see, why can't you see what you mean to me
    Why can't you see, why can't you see, why can't you see what you mean to me
    Why can't you see what you mean to me Writer/s: Arthur Baker, Bernard Sumner, Gillian Lesley Gilbert, Peter Hook, Stephen Paul David Morris
