I got your messages on my machine
I never called you back at the time
I got the flowers you sent to my work
With a note suggesting coffee sometime

I realise you're thinking 'bout me
But I've been avoiding you
You don't seem to see what's obvious
But it's time some truth broke through

CHORUS
I'm not your lifeblood
I am myself
I am not your oxygen
You can breathe as well
This is obsession
This is addiction
And how sadly you're mistaken
Your beating heart I'm not
I am myself

This is not about the way you are
You were a friend when you had my trust
There's notthing wrong with you, as far as I know
You just think you need me way too much

But this has gone too far
I've seen you parking in my street at night
Hoping just to catch a glimpse, or talk with me
But what you're wanting won't ever be

CHORUS
I'm not your lifeblood
I am myself
I am not your oxygen
You can breathe as well
This is obsession
This is addiction
And how sadly you're mistaken
Your beating heart I'm not
I am myself

Yeah this has gone too far
I've seen you taking photographs of me
Don't you know you're scaring me, this has to end
You gotta give up this fantasy, oh

CHORUS
I'm not your lifeblood
I am myself
I'm not your oxygen
You can breathe for yourself
This is obsession
This is addiction
And how sadly you're mistaken
Your beating heart I'm not
I am myself
