Lyrics

I Don't Need You

Written By: Eric van Dijsseldonk

I don’t need you to come around
I don’t need you to let me down
I don’t need your good advice
I don’t need you telling lies

I don’t need you to get along
I don’t need you to sing the song
I don’t need you to pay the rent
I don’t need you or the way you you went

Since the day you left
I know just what I need

And I don’t need you to be sad
I don’t need you in my head
I don’t need you to be my wife
I don’t need you in my life

Since the day you left
I’m living like before
and I don’t need you
anymore

Since the day you left
I’m waiting by the door
until I don’t need you anymore
I don’t need you anymore
