Don't Say

Please don't say that you need me
Because I know – I've been there before
And please don't say that you love me
Because I know – I've been there before

I gave you one more chance and that was all I ever did
I showed you all my friends and you refused them
I sang you all your songs, I always thought
“How could I go wrong?”

How could I be so naïve
To think that you would really love me?
Would love me?
So please don't try to talk to me
Because you're everything I don't want to be
So leave me alone – set me free.

I took you to the dance I showed you all my moves
But you were with someone else for the slow song
And it's so wrong
If you don't want my heart
Then I don't want no part
I still feel like maybe we do belong
Oh, what did I do wrong?

Don't say that you need me
Because I know – I've been there before
And please don't say that you love me
Because I know – I've been there before

I drove you everywhere that you would ever want to go
And I took it slow
Because your love is all I know
And all those roses I left you are all I ever know

Don't say that you need me
Because I know – I've been there before
And please don't say that you love me
Because I know – I've been there before

(solos)

Please don't say that you need me
Because I know – I've been there before
And please don't say that you love me
Because I know – I've been there before

Please don't say that you need me
Because I know – I've been there before
And please don't say that you love me
Because I know – I've been there before
