lyrics

I’d never do anything that I couldn’t do on my own

Me, my friends and two men we don’t even know getting a family ticket

That’s all I remember of home right now

I am not losing sleep, I am not what you need

Everything you heard is true, I’m no angel, I’m a fool

And I guess it never meant a thing what you said and what I did


And I need more than you taking all the best and leaving me the rest

I don’t want to wait until you change your mind

I don’t want you near me, go waste someone else’s time


And why you lied to me I will never know

So I crawl back into my shell where I have been before

I’m prepared not to care should you reach for me once more

I’m bleeding inside my cocoon but maybe I love you no more



Plug me in and these four walls could keep me standing

Maybe if I did my best and tried I wouldn’t need you to be satisfied


I’m all right but I am so alone, I sit here and pick up the phone

I’d never do anything that I couldn’t do on my own

She’s preparing lunch right now and I just want to go home
