A very immense thank you to Dee and Gregg Chaplin, Billy Centenaro, Nick Surette, and everyone who played on & added their individual beauty to this track.


Don't you dare say you'll stay
Cause I've no room in this bed for two
And I never needed anybody's company
I never needed anyone but me

People say stay close, stay safe
In my safe place there is nobody
I never need anybody's company
I never needed anyone but me
I never needed you to tell me I'm enough
And I never needed the weight of a man

Don't be surprised, don't be surprised
Don't be surprised, dear, don't be surprised

When I'm gone in the morning as you're waking up
When your body's not next to mine like you thought
I traced the word goodbye onto your arm
Before I left and sank into the dawn

I never needed you
I never needed you
I never needed you
