This moment went by too fast
It slipped right through both our hands
im still pretty but i feel like a car crash
pull me over to the side of the road
i dont need you
but i hate that you feel like home

if this is what you want to be
then be it without me
then i dont need you
no, no, then i dont need you at all
if this is what you want to be
then be it without me
then i dont need you
no, no, then i dont need you at all

then i dont need you at all

i took the last of his cash
its only resin and ash
im still pretty but you already knew that
already knew
in 20 years well wake up in bed
ask me if i even care
i wont be there but youll hate that im in your head

if this is what you want to be
then be it without me
then i dont need you
no, no, then i dont need you at all
if this is what you want to be
then be it without me
then i dont need you
no, no, then i dont need you at all

then i dont need you at all
no no no
i dont need you at all

let me tell you something
youre crazy youre crazy
youre selfish youre selfish
you make me so helpless
you make me so helpless
youre crazy youre crazy
youre selfish youre selfish
you make me so helpless
i hate who i have to be with out you next to me
i hate who i have to be without you letting me
but youre crazy youre crazy
youre selfish youre selfish
you make me
you make me

if this is what you want to be
then be it without me
then i dont need you
no, no, then i dont need you at all
if this is what you want to be
then be it without me
then i dont need you
no, no, then i dont need you at all

no no no

no no oh

then i dont need you at all

    General Commenti love this song with a passion.
    one of the best break-up songs i've heard.
    you tell yourself over and over and over
    how much you don't need someone,
    but you know you do, and you left that unsaid.

    General Commenta lot of these lyrics are messed up.
    "i took the last of his cash" is supposed to say
    "i took the last HIT IT'S CASHED"
    it's referring to smoking weed.

    General Comment"I don't need you
    But I hate that you feel like home"

    I love that line. So powerful.
    It shows how much she wants, needs him, but she wishes so bad she didn't. So she trys to convince herself she doesn't.

    Pretty much what the whole song is about, they're both trying to convince themselves & each other they don't need the other. Wonderful song.

    General CommentAmazingly sick!
    That's a great mind set to have.
    "The only people you need in your life are the ones that prove to you that they need you in theirs"

    "I don't need you but I hate that you feel like home"
    Powerful song. I love it!
